Something to keep in mind when shopping… whether you are a student, an office lady or a parent…
– Shopping lists make shopping easy!
– Create a budget for each item on the shopping list. Spend your money wisely!
– Keep in mind the difference between fads, trends and classics.
– Long, shop-‘til-you-drop sprees can lead to impulse buying, arguments and exhaustion. After a few hours of shopping, fit in some breaks and relax in Upper Canada Mall’s designated seating areas and at the food court.
– For parents shopping alone or for insight on top sellers and fashion trends, ask store managers for help on choosing the season’s hottest styles and colours. Use this time to pick out a personal item or two because it’s also back to the office.
– Teens shopping without their parents should be briefed on wise money spending.
