If you hate shopping for clothes, then I have a great option for you that may just change that.
Especially if you get easily overwhelmed with shopping, or just don’t have the time or patience to wander from store to store in the mall looking for what you need.
Shopping at Discount Department Stores.
I can see you rolling your eyes already because that’s the same response I get from my clients when I suggest it to them as well. But stay with me here…
In North America we have places like Winners, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls (but I am sure these types of stores exist worldwide), which carry great brand names at lower prices. That’s one reason I love them so much but the main reason is they are an “easy” place to shop. Seriously.
Now, if you have no idea what you are looking for they may not be the best best. BUT if you have an idea of what you want to buy, they are amazing!
For example, let’s say you want some new sleeveless tops for Summer.
Option #1 is to go to the mall, wander from store to store looking for sleeveless tops and having to search throughout each store (because the sleeveless tops will be scattered throughout the store), until you find some you like.
Option #2 is to go to the discount department store, head to the section labelled “Sleeveless Tops”, go to the area within the Sleeveless Top section that carries your size, and visually scan that section for colours or prints/patterns you like. Done.
Which shopping option sounds easier to you?
I know I don’t always have time for Option #1 and that’s why I LOVE shopping discount department stores. Sure, there may be fewer options, but if you are someone who easily gets overwhelmed with the choices when shopping (and I know there are a lot of you out there), less can be more!
So, the next time you have a specific item(s) to shop for, try out your local discount department store – I am willing to bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is!
And if you have no idea what you need when it comes to clothing and are looking for some guidance, you should totally check out my new “Effortless Style Kit“!
The Effortless Style Kit is a digital download that includes the McLatchie Must Have’s (the 15 items every woman should have in their wardrobe…by the way, there are no LBD’s or trench coats mentioned), and complete head to toe outfit ideas for each Must Have as well as shopping links for each piece shown (in case you happen to see something you really love).
You can find out all about it (and get it) HERE.
