I got a 2-for-1 video special for you! I shopped only using the spending limitations of gift cards. At the end of a long shopping day, I sit down and show you a try-on haul of my purchases for you to rate.
I've never tried this video format before, so I'm curious if you enjoy having a gift card haul turned shopping vlog turned try-on haul. Any feedback would be much appreciative. Perhaps this is not the combo everybody wanted?
I personally love gifting and receiving gift cards. I get to unbox the gift card for a fun surprise, have an excuse to go to the mall (and with friends), then pick out exactly what I want. To break down the psychology, I get a surprise, an experience, and then a material good.
When I do shop with a gift card, I gravitate towards the clearance section, in hopes of buying more than one item. I naturally want to blow an entire gift card in one shopping excursion. That's a bad combo because sometimes you settle for clearance items that you don't love.
As I've gotten older, I've become more mindful of my gift card purchases. I now seek out quality neutral-colored products that can go with many outfits or last longer in style.
How do you spend your gift cards?
