Have a Shoe Schedule and Save on Shoe Expenses

If you are one of the many out there who love shoes, and yet you are forced to remain on a tight budget or narrow income, then you are definitely in for a surprise when you go shopping; shoes are most likely one of the most expensive items in your wardrobe.  However, this is one area in which you can reasonably splurge; although shoes are on average one of the most expensive items, they last much longer than other articles, such as blouses and shirts, and can be worn on a regular basis.

The best solution to this potential budget problem is to create a "shoe schedule." Set a predetermined time to purchase a pair of new shoes when you have determined that your old pair are no longer usable. This will curb the tendency to buy a new pair because of fashion trends, or just because you "feel like it." Having a shoe schedule, and sticking to it, will save you from overspending on shoes, which is very easy to do. You will then make purchases based solely on need, as opposed to frivolous want.  Even with sticking to necessity, you should still allow yourself three purchases a year for the different styles you may need; for instance, an informal pair of running shoes; a formal pair of dress shoes; and perhaps a pair of sandals for the summer.

With keeping to a shoe budget, be perceptive to the style and color of clothing you tend to wear most often, and pick shoes that would match the majority of your wardrobe. Choose colors such as black, white and cream, since these will go well with nearly any type of clothing. For women, using these simple colors won't present a problem with the rest of your attire, such as a purse; if you choose a colored pair of shoes, then you'll most likely need to purchase a new purse and other accessories to match, which could definitely be more than your budget could handle!
