We often see very expensive products and want them for the prestige or just to fit in. It can be anything, an expensive car to impress at an event or designer clothes. It is always possible to cheat and create an impression that looks expensive but isn’t. We need to forget labels, a label doesn’t guarantee style. People who select clothing based on the label do so because they have no sense of style. It can be useful to just look around a website that sells the latest fashions and then decide on the look you want to create and then you can cheat. The way to cheat is to go to the budget websites like Matalan or Primark and look for the same style or a very similar style and create the look you want on a budget. I did this for a vintage event. I thought a linen suit would look good with a suitable hat. I ended up with chinos and a linen shirt from Matalan and a summer trilby. I got the look but I did cheat!
There is still some end of the year offers around and you can check them out online before you go to the store or shop online and have them delivered. The super-six at Aldi were still 19p yesterday so I had some parsnips to make a winter stew. Aldi also has lots of nice sausages and packs of four baking potatoes. Sausages and baked potatoes are a favourite meal for me and fortunately, Aldi does gluten-free sausages. You do have to look very carefully for the gluten-free symbol and the same applies to products in the bigger supermarkets.
Searching online for bargains
You can find lots of bargains online but you don’t have to buy online. You can find the bargain and then go to the store to check out the quality or see what else is on offer. Searching online for bargains can save you pounds!
