If you struggle to save when doing the groceries or simply just love a good bargain than you’re in luck!

Insiders have shared their amazing practices to Apartment Therapy on how to never pay full price for anything ever again.

According to their tips, it all ranges from keeping your eyes peeled on exclusive Instagram discounts to sneaky online shopper hacks.

Here is a full list of tips to follow the next time you go shopping:

1. Keep an eye on social media discounts

Multiple beauty bloggers have recommended to regularly check your favourites brand’s Instagram stories as they often share cheeky codes or last-minute sale announcements. This also includes Snapchat stories if they have an account also, along with their official Facebook pages.

2. Follow blogs

Bloggers have become popular in modern times, and now you can make the most of them by getting discounts on your favourite products.

Popular fashion and beauty bloggers often host sales to help promote their blogs or brand partnerships and in turn giveaway sample/exclusive products.

If you are not sure of any, you can try using Bloglovin.

3. Take note of free shipping codes

Shopping online can cost a fortune when it comes to shipping internationally.

Take note whenever there is free shopping being offered or use codes when brands send discount via email and social accounts.

Another option is to get in touch with the online retailer if an online chat option is available and ask for shipping discount codes. 

If not, opting for domestic direct retailers is the way to go.

4. Earn loyalty points

Getting into a rewards program scheme can significantly benefit you in the long run.

Simply using a Woolworths Rewards or Flybuys type program can earn you points that’ll unlock major discounts and 2 for 1 deals.

5. Leave your online shopping basket

This is quite a cheeky one, but simply choosing not to purchase the stack of items in your current basket can actually push retailers to offer you a discount. 

All you have to do is leave your cart full then exit the website and leave it for a day. The online retailer will usually send an email reminding you of your left behind items. 

If you are lucky, the email will also come with a discount offer!
