Summer is finally here, and people are preparing to jet off on holiday. However,a new holiday often means a new summer wardrobe to look as instagrammable as possible on the beach. With the average UK family now spending £5,000 a year on holidays, it’s no surprise that many are looking for the best shopping deals.

Here’s a few money-saving tips for holiday shopping and making the most of your summer essentials.

Think About What You Need

Before you hit the shops, think carefully about what you really need. If you’re going on an adventure holiday and will only need a few evening outfits; don’t be tempted to overpack! Making an outfit plan is an easy way to work out what you do and do not need for your holiday. That way, you can save money and identify where you’re spending unnecessarily.

Buy Basic

Building on the previous point, making an outfit plan can help you organise which item of clothing you can wear more than once. One way to do this is invest in good quality basic pieces, such as t-shirts, shorts and a little black dress.

You can’t go wrong with a few basics. In fact, you’ll likely get more wear out of them than you would shopping for trends. Save money by choosing affordable, basic pieces that you can dress up or down for any occasion.

Find Shopping Deals

The best way to save money on your holiday shop is to find the best shopping deals for your clothing and electronics. Low-price shopping can be incredibly time-consuming, especially when you’re trying to find the best deal.

Using a shopping deals app like PIWoP is a great way to find discounted clothes. PIWoP allows you to create lists of the clothes you are after, set the price you want to pay and as soon as the items reach that price, you’ll be notified.
