As women, we are always looking for the best deals on everything – food items, furniture, books, tuition, clothing and jewellery. Get the best bang for your buck or stretch that dollar especially if you’re on a budget.
Most women though when it comes to buying shoes is another matter. There seems to be a special connection for women with shoes. They don’t seem to compromise when it comes to comfort and to add that extra touch to the look they want based on the occasion and who they may be with at the time even if it is gym wear. The shoes just have to match and complete the ensemble. If we are trying to lose weight, we need to look good doing it!
Because we go through many different seasons all year round, it means a women needs to have a wide variety of shoes unlike women who live in the tropics, one or two pairs of casual shoes can take you a far way and can work with almost anything.
However, when selecting shoes for the varied seasons, it means you won’t be wearing them for extended periods of time so your investment must be adding value while you make good use of the shoes, unless you care for them so well that you can reuse them when the season rolls around again.
Being on a budget then may be a good approach and finding the best deal for women’s shoes means shopping around. This can be online as well as through the traditional stores. One of the best times to get deals is when the holidays are over. Everything goes on sale then or buy one, get the other half off or for free. Keep an eye out for clearance sales as well.
Some stores offer coupons that can be used to further discount the prices in stores and of course bulk buying is always another option. Go with a girlfriend or two and negotiate a discount.
Lots of ads shows up online that look interesting and target women are:
And of course you have the largest retailer, http://www.amazon.com It’s great to use online to shop as you can read the reviews and make your own judgement.
Most online retailers offer larger discounts, deals and coupon buying once you register for free with their site and offer free shipping within your location.
The worst thing is to go impulse buying like most women do. They see a shoe and fall in love and just have to have it! Then they realise it matches with nothing they have in the closet and it’s either they have to spend more money to buy an outfit and accessories to match or they regret spending the money in the first place and go into depression.
It’s recommended if you are looking to find the best deal for women’s shoes that you also consider the following:
• Be neutral. Buy a color that can match with anything- brown or black are safe colors
• Buy shoes that are comfortable and can be worn multiple times in and out of season for example a pair of track shoes can be used for jogging, light walking, work out at the gym, picking up the kids from school and goes well with jeans if doing some light shopping at the supermarket.
