How to get more bang for your buck when you shop for clothing, shoes, and accessories in India
Posted On July 18, 2021
It was one of the most important moments of my life, I was the only Indian person in the world and I was looking for a new pair of jeans.
But then my mom came home with a bag full of shoes, a few pairs of sneakers, and a bag of clothes, and she was like, “Oh my god, those are my shoes.”
It was the most amazing feeling ever.
So I had to decide, I want to be able to go to India for a week, and I want a lot of clothes.
I didn’t have any money, so I thought I was gonna have to do the best I could and spend a lot, and then spend a little bit of money.
But I decided I’m not gonna be a bad person.
I bought them at the market, I thought, “I’m gonna buy them here, I’m gonna spend my money here, and when I get home, I’ll be happy with them.”
But when I got home, they were gone.
The next day, I went to the store and the owner was like “Oh, you bought them from the same place last week.”
So that was the worst feeling ever, I got kicked out of my house.
I was really upset, so when I was on my way back home, my mom got on the phone and said, “What’s wrong with your shoes?
They were like new.
They were on sale.”
And I was like … what the hell is going on?
I think my parents were a little nervous.
They weren’t going to have a lot to do with me, they didn’t really have any experience with shopping.
I just felt like I didn`t want to say anything to my mom, so she just gave me the clothes and I went home and went to bed.
And then my dad went to work and woke me up at 3:00 AM, so he went to sleep at 5:00 PM.
He said, I`m going to get my son dressed, and he came to me.
And I asked, “Why don`t you wear those shoes, Dad?”
He said “They were cheap.”
I said, why?
And he said, because I didn’`t like the way they looked, I wanted them to be authentic.
And he went, “Yeah, but I want you to know, I bought them because you have a little money.”
So I went back to work.
And when I came back to India, I found out that there are so many options.
You can go to any of the malls and there are different stores with different prices.
So for me, it was a huge challenge, because the price was so much cheaper than my previous experience.
And it was like I went through a nightmare, it felt like a nightmare.
I went to a couple of stores and I could get my shoes for less than half the price they cost, and the next day I was still having a headache.
I had been buying shoes from Walmart for over a year.
So that really made me feel bad.
It was like that’s not the world I wanted to live in, so they gave me an extra $100 and said that’s a deal.
It wasn’t a bad deal.
They said that you can use the money for your kids education, for a house, and everything.
So that was really the hardest part.
And for me it was really hard to go back to the home country because I felt like that`s where my life was.
I don`s really want to go there.
I want my family to come over, and it`s not even an option anymore.
I really don`ts feel like I belong in India.
I feel like this is where I`ll be forever, because there is no future for me there.
And it`ll never be the same, because of how much I had saved.
And there are just so many stores that have different prices and the prices that I can find at a certain time, I just can`t get my money in there.
So it`m really hard for me to understand why people think this is so easy, and they should just go to the mall, because it is so hard to get your money in India and get your clothes.
