2. Where to beware
Remember that online shopping sites try various strategies to get you to spend more money, i.e buy 3 get 1 free, buy 3 free shipping, etc.
3. Be flexible
Shop for the next season or the season just past, not the one that's just started.
4. Limit spending
Budget a specific amount of money and use it to shop. Perhaps with that way, it limits impulse buying. Alternatively, buy items used at online instead of new one.
5. Shop locally
Local online shopping sites may have good prices, too, without shipping costs and with easy returns.
