How to Save up for Designer Goods - Guilt Free


As the year comes to an end, it's time to think about 2019.  This year, I want to invest in myself. I decided that instead of buying so much 'fast fashion', I want to start buying investment pieces I know I can keep forever that are worth the money. Reel is going to help me do just that!




WHAT IS REEL?


 Reel is a guilt free shopping platform. What I mean by that is, you can search Reel for just about any item you want! The website is mostly luxury goods, such as Gucci, Saint Laurent, Valentino, etc. Reel helps you set a realistic goal so you can figure out how to get the designer products without swiping your credit card. It helps you budget your own money! Ah-mazing right?

How does it save your money?

Once you pick the item you want to save for, you can pick how many days you want to save and how much you want to save each day. For example, I want to purchase a Saint Laurent card holder.  I decided to divide it between 68 days. Each day, Reel will take 4.98 out of my bank account. I will have the cardholder in 68 days! They will place the order and ship it to me and boom it's mine.

I'll be honest, anytime I have bought a luxury item I have bought it with a credit card. It will be so surreal to have a designer item I have actually paid cash for in my possession. Another thing I want to touch on is that even though the website focuses on saving for luxury goods, you can save for everyday things such as a pair of Nike gym shoes as well.




What if I change my mind? What if I want to save less?


Reel allows you to always be able to adjust how you save. If you want to stop saving for a period of time, you can always pause Reel. In the case that you change your mind, you can always choose another product and the funds you were saving will transfer to your new item. What I love about Reel is that it helps you truly invest in the things you want to buy and it stops you from impulse shopping.
