Everyone likes a bargain, but this poll is based on your actual spending. You are on Team Full Price if you purchase more of your wardrobe items at full price, and vice versa.
I enjoy a bargain. I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t! I like to shop at the Rack, and if I happen to see something on sale that’s fabulous, you bet your bottom dollar I’m going to buy it. But I’m on Team Full Price because more often than not, I pay full price. Here’s why:
First, my size goes fast and it’s hardly ever available at sale time. Second, when I try on something that makes my heart go pitter patter and it’s within my budget, I nab it right there and then. I derive the most enjoyment from a potential wardrobe item as soon as I see it, which is usually at the beginning of its retail life when the stuff is new and fresh to my eye. I want to take the item home and wear it straight away. And I do. This doesn’t mean that I have unlimited funds. It’s just another way of shopping and I still stick to my budget. I am seldom seduced by sales, and purchasing more items at full price makes me even more discerning about what ends up in my closet. Bargain shoppers probably think I have rocks in my head, but this purchasing strategy works for me.
Over to you. Are you on Team Full Price or on Team Bargain Price? No batting for both sides. I bet Team Bargain Price will leave Team Full Price in the dust. I might even be the only member on my Team.
