1. Make a list

It may sound a bit ancient, but trust us when we say that making a list goes a long way. If you jot down what you have in mind, chances also are that you will stick to it and avoid going overboard, hence ending up with more savings. 

2. If in doubt, do not shop

More often than once, you will want to indulge in shopping because you are bored or simply want something to do. If you are not completely aware of what you wish for or don't have a clue as to whether you should shop or not, take a break. Watch a movie, spend some time outdoors and collect your thoughts rather than buying something you might regret later.

3. Carry only the cash required

Spendthrifts have a sure shot problem when it comes to splurging, and the only way to counter the age-old issue and keep your savings intact is to have a limited supply of cash when you are out shopping. Make a budget for yourself before stepping out and carry the amount of cash you really, really need. In case you are using a card, make sure it has a limit so that you don't go overboard.

6. Shop ahead of the season

Still shopping for your new summer OOTDs when the temperatures begin to shoot up? But that's where you are going wrong! ICYMI, clothes always tend to be cheaper in the previous season. For example, shopping for summer clothes in December or January will fetch you better prices, whilst also giving your wardrobe a headstart. 

7. Try out coupon apps

Some of us do not have the patience to browse best deals online, and that's where coupon apps step in. You can clip, scan and upload coupons online-be it shopping coupons or notifications about the best deals that help you with the savings, it's all in here. Try out GrabOn, CouponDunia or PaisaWapas for gift cards and offers, all available at the Google App Store.
