Slow Shopping

Control your spending this Black Friday

My name is Hannah from Bristol, and I am 24 years old on a money saving journey. I have been on Instagram for many years now sharing the highs and lows of my money journey. From clearing my £5,000 worth of debt at the age of 21 to saving for a house deposit with my partner and paying for a car using cash!

I share money saving tips, side hustle tips and of course how to find the best deals online to save as much money as possible when it comes to shopping. My Instagram is full of the tips and tricks you need to save money at any age!

Take the time to plan!

Plan what it is you want to buy before you go shopping. This will help with the temptation to buy more products! Reading reviews can really help you plan, which products you would like to buy. Reading other people's opinions can help influence you in the right direction in terms of buying the best product. This can also help justify if you are making the right buying decision.

Research products and their prices!

The best option is to use PriceSpy, to track different products, and use the price history feature. Also set up alert notifications to be notified when the price drops. Price compare those items online well in advance, so when it comes to Black Friday, you’ll know what is a good price or if you are getting a good deal!

Do you really need 3 brand new TV's?

Think about what you are buying. Do you really need all the things you are planning to buy? Have a shopping list and stick to it! Make sure to research all available products to make sure you are getting the best deal on the products are are actually wanting. Do not let the price influence your final decision.

Keep track of your spending!

The best way to have control of your money during the Black Friday promotion is to track your spending. If you track using your banking app or your budget planner it will help you understand where your money has gone!
