Top Five Ways to Make Your Shopping More Enjoyable

Shopping season is well under way. Here are 5 tips on how to make your shopping trip more enjoyable plus a chance to win tickets to an advance screening of TOP FIVE!


1.  Wear comfortable shoes - Looking cute while shopping is a good thing, but don't over do it with shoes that will have you in pain within minutes. Outlet shopping and visiting malls like King of Prussia require a lot of shopping, stopping, and revisiting so be prepared.

2. Leave the coat, dress in layers - My biggest pet peeve about shopping in the winter is lugging around a big coat. Instead, I try to layer up by wearing a long comfy cardigan, a scarf, or a slouchy sweatshirt. Just think it's easier to put those items in a shopping bag or tie that around your purse, then a huge coat.

3. A cross body bag is a shoppers best friend - Hands free shopping is always easiest when you're not carrying extra baggage. The average women's purse can weigh up to 6.27 lbs according to StyleList.com. Carrying that on your arm can and will definitely weigh you down.

4. Know where to go - Plan ahead so you don't waste time. Know what stores you want to go to and try not to get distracted. Every retailer will be trying to lure shoppers in with the lowest prices of the season, but remember as the season goes on, the prices will keep getting lower. Do your research for extra savings from printable coupons, mobile coupons, and rewards to get the best bang for your buck.

5. Take a break - Whether it's a lunch break or even a movie break, make sure you take a break. Long mall hours can make you delusional and you can easily lose track of time. Make sure you take the time to eat or enjoy a movie.

Speaking of movies, we would like to treat one reader and a guest to an advance screening of TOP FIVE starring Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson, Gabrielle Union,  Cedric The Entertainer, and the list goes on and on.  The screening will take place at the United Artist in King of Prussia on December 9. If you're interested in winning the tickets, simply complete the task in the widget below. Winners will be notified via Twitter, so make sure you're following @FashionofPhilly. Giveaway will end Monday, December 8 at 11:59 p.m. I can't wait to announce the winner!
