When I first moved to America, I was young and inexperienced and continuously compared prices, converting the currency of my native state into dollars and vice versa. “Oh God, everything is expensive!”, I thought for the first few months and lamented that good bread costs as much as 100 hryvnias ($ 4) and rent of more or less tolerable housing – 32,500 hryvnias ($ 1300). After 1.5 years of living in the USA, I still compare, but now – in favor of the USA. The fact that in Ukraine is expensive, in America everyone can afford.
I was never a shopaholic and always laughed at people who start a fight because of collaboration things or go crazy about products of new interesting brands. All this was until I lived in the USA. To dislike shopping here is simply impossible, because:
- a very large selection of brands and products;
- seasonal sales, where you can find expensive and high-quality items at a very low price;
- high competition, which forces stores to lower prices in order to get customers;
- different chips to save online.
To buy some items of clothing cheaper than in an offline store, you just sometimes need to put the right thing in the Google search bar and find the most appropriate offer, taking into account tax and delivery. If this is a well-known chain store like Macy`s, most likely there are always some discounts or promotional codes that can be found on Retailmenot . And to return part of the money spent, you need to make a purchase through any website with a return (cashback) – for example, through Topcashback .
