Shopping is one of my favorite things to do! For some it may be therapy, for some it is necessity & some people do not like shopping because they are too lazy to shop! I am honestly stuck between the therapy & lazy phase, which is why I prefer shopping off-season.
Why to Shop Off-Season?
Well, this is pretty obvious! This is the normal demand, supply & price phenomenon. Demand is directly proportional to the price which means higher the demand, higher the price and lower the demand, lowers the price! This is why things are cheaper off-season. Who would wear a jacket or even buy a jacket in summers? Well, I suggest you do! A jacket which costs Rs.4000/- in winters may cost Rs.2000/- in summers.
Hola! You are ready for winters in advance and that too without wondering if you’ve paid way too much.
Going Out? You Always Have Clothes
We usually try to escape the weather in our city for a while! When it is too hot, we plan a vacation to areas where it is cold and vice versa. If you’re shopping off-season, well you may never be short of clothes. It means you will always have clothes for all the seasons, all year round. You don’t have to worry about wearing the same old jacket for your vacation.
Escape the Latest Fashion Swindle & Save Fortune
Who said only clothes are bought as per season? Did you ever notice that all phones are released in October! Everyone wants to buy them in October, because who doesn’t want the latest phone in the market. There comes in the Demand-Price Phenomenon again. Since everyone is willing to buy the phone, the prices are high. If you wait to buy the same phone for 6 months, you may just get a better deal!
Having the latest technology is pretty cool. Saving money is way cooler than that!
Be the Who Starts the Trends
While everyone is busy following celebrities and their styles, you can be your own trendsetter. When you shop off-season, it gives you more time to explore different styles and pair up. Since you can buy things for cheap and you have more time to explore, you may just come up with a really interesting outfit idea! It gives you time to think about what looks good on you.
These are the few reasons why I love shopping off season! Having the latest fashion maybe cool, but saving money in even cooler.
What to Buy?
There are things which never go out of fashion which are best bought off-season. The list is down below:
Shorts will never go out of fashion and, you could buy the shorts cheaper during the winter season!
Boots have been in fashion since the beginning of the time. They are super costly & we always think twice before buying a pair of boots, but have you ever checked the price of the boots you loved at the end of the winter season? Well should and you’ll know what am I talking about!
Well, cashmere sweaters are one of the most expensive pieces of clothing. They’re soft like a baby’s skin and even softer when you get it for half the price! How can you get one at half price? End of season sale!
Who says shopping is limited to clothes & shoes? Some of us love buying technology and specifically phones! We love changing our phones but do you really think it is worth buying a phone for Rs. 50,000/- when you can buy the same thing for Rs. 40,000/- immediately after the release of the next model which has no significant difference from the model already in the market!
Holiday Cards & Festive Décor
Many people already do it and we end up calling them cheap! But do we realize that they aren’t cheap but smart! Do you realize that festive décor & cards are exactly the same every year and super expensive during the festival!
The prices for travel packages rise during winter & summer vacations! Why not make your bookings for the season in advance?
So be smart and save money! Off-season shopping can be risky but what’s life without risks?
