We’ve all been taught that planning ahead is a good thing right?
I can often been found spending my spare time browsing my favourite online beauty shops for new products and great sales, in fact I probably do 50% of my beauty shopping online because of the easy shipping and sometimes awesome exchange rates. As a notorious list maker and a bit of an obsessive organizer, I’m often on the lookout for products that I can save up for the next season. Shopping winter products in the summer and vice versa not only provides some great discounts (just like with clothes, beauty products seem to have seasonal prices as well) but allows me to build up my stash slowly with things that I’m likely going to need instead of making one massive splurge when the season hits.
But shopping early does have it’s potential drawbacks, for one you loose the excitement of shopping during the regular season where you’ll likely have a more abundant selection and also newer products which hits the shelves every year. In addition, if you’re the type to store unused items in a box or drawer you may completely forget in a few months time that you had purchased something in the first place.
So which type of beauty shopper are you?
Do you like to shop ahead of the season or do you enjoy the rush of shopping within the season?
