Nakakahilo ang mga red tags sa lahat ng stores sa lahat ng malls, hindi ba? And very tempting, indeed.

Nakakahilo ang mga red tags sa lahat ng stores sa lahat ng malls, hindi ba? And very tempting, indeed.

It is never wrong to shop and get ourselves things that we either need or have always wanted for a long time. The sale season is perhaps even the most perfect opportunity to do so, dahil nga bagsak-presyo. Most people actually wait till the sale flags are up before shopping to get the best value for their money.

The monthlong Dubai Summer Surprises sale will be over in a couple of weeks but it’s not yet too late! Go for it, but make sure you are ready—heart, body, mind, and wallet.

Here are some things to do and remember before going to battle:

  1. Make a list of what you need—and what you want.
    Para masiguradong sulit ang pag-shopping, it is important to prioritize. Ano nga ba ang mga kailangan mong bilhin? Masisikip na ba ang pamasok mong pantalon? Pudpod na ba ang sapatos mo? List all those needs down and make sure to put them on top of your notes.

    Don’t forget to check your “wants” to. Syempre, iba pa rin ang feeling kapag finally, mabibili mo na yung gustong-gusto mong bag o gadget diba? The best part is: 50% off pa!

  2. Set a fixed budget.
    Budget-wise, ideally, dapat napaghandaan mo na yan matagal na. Alamin kung hanggang saan lang ang pwede at kayang ilabas para sa shopping spree.

    Dahil sa totoo lang, pagdating sa overspending, nasa huli ang pagsisi.

  3. Do some spring-cleaning!
    Scan your room and your closet. Baka mamaya may nakita kang bagay na naka-sale at hindi mo namalayang, nairegalo na pala sa’yo noong nakaraang Pasko. Know what you have and what you don’t have, so you can prioritize better.

    Bukod dito, sa paglilinis ng closet, malalaman mo rin kung ano ‘yung mga bagay na hindi mo na nagagamit—and this leads us to the next tip.

  4. Grow your shopping fund by selling some pre-loved stuff.
    Ilabas ang mga bagay, damit o sapatos na hindi mo na nagagamit pero pwede pang mapakinabangan ng iba.

    Why not sell them online? Dagdag shopping money o ipon pa, hindi ba? Sa panahon ngayon, marami nang platforms na pwede mong pagbentahan. You can even post them in our classifieds section for FREE.

  5. Know your options online.
    Go back to your list of needs and wants. Bago dumiretso ng mall, tumingin tingin muna online.

    Malay mo may biglang nagbenta pala ng sneakers na gusto mong bilhin diba? Tapos brand new pa and offered at a price lower than the retail rate dahil mali yung size na nabili. This is sometimes the reason for selling brand new stuff online. Check out the classifieds section and you will see.

Once you feel ready and confident, go head for the mall and enjoy! Happy shopping!

Dubai Summer Surprises runs until August 12, 2017.
