Dressing to impress is always important, but it can be expensive.
This semester I got to be a part of Inspired Strategies Agency and with that came dressing professionally every Monday. This meant that I needed to go shopping for some new clothes!
I love going shopping for new clothes, but as a college student I don’t get too much time to work, which means that I’m not making much money; and let me tell you, pencil skirts and dress pants don’t always come cheap.
Some stores can be a bit pricey when it comes to looking for professional clothing items. One thing that my mom has instructed me to do was, check and see if any stores have coupons online or if they are having sales.
When you visit stores websites they may ask for your email. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT! Enter your email address, stores always send out emails on the latest deals that they are having either online or in stores.
(They also like to send some coupons every once in a while)
A perfect website for college students to use is UNiDAYS. I absolutely love this website! They have so many discounts on their website and on their app. It is so simple to use, all you need to do is create an account.
They always update their website with new discounts for different stores. The only way that you can access these discounts is by being a current college student. A little bonus is that it’s not just for clothing stores, they give discounts on so many different things!
So many stores have their own apps now and some even have special discounts on there.
As college students, I know that we do not have a lot of money to spend. Always check to see if there are coupons or sales when you go to the store. Do not spend a lot of money on something if you do not have to.
Remember, discounts and coupons are your best friends when it comes to shopping.
