Survival Guide to Shopping with your Mother

ImageFor some of us shopping with our mother is a pleasant experience filled with cherished mother-daughter moments. For others though, the experience can be closest compared to a painful bikini wax with irritation that lingers for days.

With vacation days upon us, these shopping trips may become more frequent so below we have provided you with a brief survival guide to cope with mother-daughter shopping season. Happy shopping!

Mother-Daughter Shopping Survival Guide

1. Bring a shopping list. If you are out shopping with the purpose of buying items you need, take a list. Share the items on the list with your mom to speed up the pointless looking around that may occur to either of you. This will save time and frustration for both of you ladies.

2. Be firm, but pleasant. If you are NOT out shopping with the purpose of buying items you need, set a budget. Some wonderful lovingmoms think you look beautiful in everything and somehow make you feel certain purchases are justified when deep down you know the item will most likely hang in your closet until you just decide to consign it at Vintage Vogue. A budget will allow you to keep firm but pleasant because the fact that you didn’t purchase the mom-approved item will be all because of a budget and not that it just wasn’t your taste.

3.  Humor one another and try on items recommended by your mother, even if you know there isn’t enough money in the world they could pay you to wear it. Your mother dressed you for however many years (stop holding it against her!) and still feels she knows what looks good on you and sometimes mother does know best. OR you both might just get a good laugh and your mom will get to know your taste even more. A win-win!

4. Savor the moment. We never know what tomorrow will bring, so if you are blessed enough to have a mother with whom to shop..enjoy it! Find out what tends to frustrate you about the experience and prepare what you might do or say to avoid any unpleasant situations. If you find yourself getting impatient, separate yourself if only for a few moments.

Always remember, compromising and patience usually produces a pleasant experience!

Shop Smart: Best things to buy during January

Living-Frugal-Loving-It-mdnLet’s start off 2013 saving smart and let’s make a resolution to not make unresearched purchases because there is truly a time for everything under the sun as the wise King Solomon once said (including making certain purchases) .

Treading away from fashion and consignment for one day, let’s focus our attention to another love of ours and that is showing off our frugalness with great steals at retail locations. We all know what wonderful year round deals you can find at great consignment stores like Vintage Vogue but here’s a great list from  Yahoo’s Financially Fit blog that I wanted to share with you.

The BEST things to buy during January

Electronics

The International Consumer Electronics show, the world’s largest consumer technology trade show, falls in January. Here, manufacturers introduce their newest products from flat screen TVs to mobile phones and cameras. With new tech products soon to flood the marketplace, retailers will discount older models and place them on super clearance in January, especially if holiday sales were disappointing. “You’ll find many high-end models at lower prices than you saw even on Black Friday,” notes Dan de Grandpre, Editor-in-Chief of DealNews.com. TVs, specifically, often see attractive pricing this month, as the Super Bowl draws near. “In January, electronics retailers tend to focus on the Super Bowl buyer. That means that high-end TVs – larger screens, with features like 3D – go on sale,” says de Grandpre.

Recreational Vehicles

If you’re in the market for an alternative ride like a motorcycle, boat or even a convertible, January is a good month to drive a bargain, as showrooms experience a huge slump this time of year. Salespeople are more likely willing to bargain. Check in with your local dealerships and ask about special offers.

Outdoor Gear

Except for items specializing in winter sports, camping and outdoor stores often see a drop in sales during the cold winter months, according to historical sales data collected by DealNews.com. This means you’ll find low prices on things like tents, backpacks, and fishing gear.

Bedding and Linens

January is also a great time to find deeply discounted bedding and linens, as some stores simply try to keep up with tradition. “White Sales” began in 1878 by Philadelphia department store owner John Wannamaker, who wanted to keep linen makers afloat during the slow, winter months.

Home Improvement Supplies

Also on sale during the off-season are materials and services related to home improvement projects like carpet installation, paint, and new flooring. Flooring, in particular, goes on sale this month because, following the flurry of pre-holiday installations and before the big tax rebate-buying season. “It’s true that contractors have a ton of extra time on their hands this month and could be looking to discount their materials or services,” says de Grandpre. “Start getting quotes now.”

Existing Homes

Speaking of home improvement, January is also a savvy time to shop for a new home. According to the National Association of Realtors, January is one of the slowest months of the year for existing home sales, with more families buying homes in the late spring and summer, closer to the start of the new school year. Cold weather discourages pounding the pavement so with fewer buyers on the market, you have eager sellers and far fewer bidding wars.

Happy shopping!
