3 Simple Questions To Ask Yourself In The Dressing Room That Will Blow Your Mind And Save Money

It’s amazing how much money slips through our fingers.

Once I started tracking my spending, I found my frequent trips to discount retailers added up. Buying a dress or blouse for $25 – $30 seemed like no big deal but take all together, the purchases added up to $120 – $150 a month. Until I started tracking my spending, I didn’t even realize I was spending so much money on “extras.”

I wondered:

Was this really the best use of my money?

Was I getting great value from shopping?

Was I buying because of the perceived discount rather than something I needed or really wanted? As my mother-in-law used to say, “Am I going broke saving money?”

Most of the time, the answer was no to 1 and 2 and yes to 3.

Now I hold onto my money! I think twice before whipping out my credit card. You have to be pretty fabulous to make it into my closet today.

Before I make a purchase, I do this “3 Question Dressing Room Drill.” I ask myself these questions and you can, too:

1. Would I buy this item at triple the price?

2. Do I ABSOLUTELY love it?

3. Would I get rid of something else to own this?

If the answer is yes to all 3 questions, consider a purchase (if you have room in your shopping budget that month.) If the answer is no, walk away.

It feels so-o-o-o- good to walk away, doesn’t it?
