I am very surprised that I managed to clear almost 6 big trash bags filled with our old stuff that we seldom use and have long forgotten. The trash bags were filled with old and worn out toys of our Millie, my daughter’s old school notebooks, my own files and articles that I couldn’t remember printing out, my husband’s magazines which were all decade’s old and worn out shoes/bags and even clothes that couldn’t be donated anymore. I even saw some cheap custom drawstring bags which were marked with some hotels’brand we have stayed at before during our travels. There were even very old bath soaps and gels from the same hotels that I have kept for souvenir or when we have guests.
I guess, we have been hoarding for a long time now and just realized that the stuff we have were just collecting dusts and taking up space at home. I even gave some of my old bags and shoes back home recently when we sent a “balikbayan” box. I just couldn’t believe that even after cleaning before, we still have so much mess. It’s time to downsize and really stick to our goal of saving. I can’t afford to keep buying stuff only to forget about them in the long run.
I am a big shopper! I admit. It is something I enjoy to do and I make it a point to find good deals around whether it is in the mall or online. Lately, I have been frequenting the online shopping sites for fabulous discounts and deals because most of the items I need cannot be found here in Dubai.
It is good to stumble upon shopping sites like Zalora. The site offers a wide variety of clothes, shoes, accessories, bags and even sports wear for men and women! All of those items I have mentioned are under one site and those are the usual things I look for when I browse the internet.
Zalora offers free shipping nationwide if you spend Pesos 1000 and above. I am glad that I have a Philippine postal address that I can use if I need to purchase my favorite items and great finds. My daughter will also be thrilled to know that the site carries Sperry Top-sider shoes as well that she has been bugging me with for her birthday this February.
Aside from the multitude of choices, the site also carries fresh brand names I haven’t heard of. They look promising and great for young people like my daughter.
Another great thing I found about Zalora is that you can pay using major credit cards and even Paypal and for a blogger like myself, Paypal is my favorite mode of payment!
Do check out Zalora.com.ph and enjoy the merchandise they offer. You may find something for yourself and even for your families. Now’s the time to gift yourself even after Christmas. You’ve been good, right?
