Mall Sale, Is It Worth It?

June or July is the year-end sale. Most of the people are ranting or raving about it. Most of the people go crazy about sale. What is a sale? Sale is where you buy a certain item that is discounted or priced lower than it’s used to be. Usually, most of the large mall chains here in the metro held a monthly sale. Actually there’s a lot of sale going on: monthly sale, year-end sale, end-of-season sale (for winter/rainy days, or summer), back to school sale, graduation sale, mother/father’s day sale, Christmas sale, and almost name it, they have it kind of sales.
For monthly sales, it is during the 15th or 30th (usually the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of it). For year-end, it is usually during June or July. While end of season, it is usually January and July. People go to mall for shopping rather than going to some places like Divisoria or Quiapo most reason would be because malls are usually cooler, have lots of things to do after shopping in philippines like movie, dining, etc.

Sale is not limited to clothes only. It mostly covers all kinds of items you can find inside the mall. Do we save money with sales? Definitely yes! You can get a lot of savings if you buy in bulk. Some sale have it red tagged, yellow tagged, or green tagged (some have orange tags as well). It depends on the discount they give you.

When buying items, be sure to buy first what is your priority? Is it your clothes, do you have an event to be attending to, is it your children’s back to school moment, is it Christmas, or whatever the occasion is, be sure to know it first. Don’t to “impulsive buying” because you’ll end up having nothing. Be sure to identify what you need to buy, and how it will be helpful to you.

For example, if you’re after the quantity of your clothes, sale is an advantage for you. It is because you get to buy them cheaper. You go for in-sale items because you’re just going to use them once or twice a month probably. Why buy that in original price, when you can get it in a lower price.     Christmas - You’ve got a long list of people to be given gifts. Mall sale is very helpful for you. You get to buy lower priced items than they used to be. But be sure to be buying in the morning because you’ll end up being tired or lazy in the afternoon or during weekends because there are lots of people on your way. It is practical to go after mall sales if you’re not after the “what’s in” because you can wait for it’s price to drop.

  1. There is a lot malls in the philippines and the Filipino loves going mall as much as they want even without anything to do. They will go there sometimes for pleasure and for having a good time with friends or family. If the mall started their sale we can see how people grab this opportunity and also we can't move easily because the traffic of the people inside the mall. I am personally love sale because the things I want got low price. Anyway thanks for sharing and keep posting about it.
