Frugal Living - Factory Outlet Shopping

Lately, like most South Africans, I have been feeling a pinch in my pocket. No matter how much I try to cut back on those take-away lattes, the bank balance seems to hang on by a thread every month-end.
With the rise in petrol prices and the cost of stuff in general, relief is nowhere in sight. I have now decided to do my best to live frugally or at least cut back on some things so I can afford what really matters to me.

Factory outlet shopping is one of the ways I'm planning to go about doing this. It makes sense now, more than ever.

What I like about factory outlets is that they sell authentic local and international brands. The prices are reduced because the clothing items were either overstocked by retailers, or they had some defects and not because they are fake. I can handle a missing button but I don’t think I can handle an extra 'd' to my adidas... addidas? Really...?

This past weekend, I bought my son two Obaibi and one H&M long sleeved t-shirts, in preparation of the cold winter days ahead, I got all 3 for R80 from Meltz.

I also bought myself a few items and joined the loyalty programme, I guess I'm gonna be a regular :-)
