Financial expert Rachel Langlois, from Cyprus Credit Union, shared some tips for being a smart shopper.

  • Use cash when you go shopping. Easier to track what you are spending.
  • When you buy something new, make room and get rid of something from your closet that you no longer wear.
  • Make a rule that whatever you buy has to match at least two things in your closet.
  • It may be hard, but wait until an item goes on sale. Check out different stores markdown codes.
  • Use apps like Poshmark that help you sell old clothes and make money.
