How to Save Money and Look Good Doing It
With all the costs of living and energy rising to the highest levels in generations, you might be getting a bit bare in the bank. But here are some tips to save money and look good doing it.
Begin with Your Smile
When you have bad teeth, you may feel very self-conscious. One survey found that over half of people don’t like their teeth, even those with a great smile. But getting dental care is expensive, and most people don’t have enough money to pay for it.
Professional cosmetic dentistry is always the best option. But you can also get cheaper clip-on veneers with a mold of your mouth. From there, a lab can make a perfect fitting set of dentures for cosmetic use.
People often notice hairstyles right away. Because of this, you might worry a lot about your hair. Professional hair treatments can be pretty expensive. It’s usually not cheap, so it’s best to save it for special occasions.
But most professional hairstylists are happy to do hairstyling for free or at a very low cost if they can let trainees or students do it. Even though trainees aren’t qualified, they usually get help from and are supervised by people who are.
Save Money and Look Good with Charity Stores
You can save a lot and get a bargain at a charity store. Most of them only accept and sell clothing in really good condition. But there are other benefits to using charity stores:
- Your money goes to charitable causes you otherwise might not be aware of.
- You can often revamp your wardrobe from designer brands that will last longer.
- You’re helping support your community by spending money on the local economy.
There’s no longer a stigma about using charity shops. Clothing is clothing; no one has to know where you got it. And if you’re lucky, you might find something extraordinary.
Don’t Dress Your Best for Everyday Things
When you buy clothes with designer labels, they make you look great. You want to wear them all the time because of this. But most of the time, you don’t need to wear your best tops, shoes, or shoulder bags.
For example, you won’t get much use out of your Armani jeans if you wear them to do your daily chores. You shouldn’t run out to get some groceries in your Burberry jacket, either. You don’t have to look like a Kardashian just to get some milk and diapers.
It can be hard to always be on the lookout for good deals. But you might miss out on some great deals if you don’t keep an ear to the ground or an eye on the screen. Luckily, there’s an app for that, just like there’s an app for everything else.
Well, there are a lot of them. Honey, Karma, and Product Hunt are a few of the best. You can put these on your phone or PC web browser, and they will let you know about the best deals with customized message alerts.
You can save money and look good by changing your shopping habits. You can try at-home cosmetic dentistry, browse charity stores for deals and sign up for sales alerts with apps.
