Today is the first day of the 3-Day Sale of SM City Batangas. Our Team went there for our usual ‘checking out’ of what are the good finds or the best buys around the mall.
To make it more exciting, Gerlie and I agreed to do a shopping challenge. We dubbed it the ‘P1000 Shopping Challenge’ where we have to purchase an entire outfit or wardrobe set worth P1000 or less if we can.
Since it’s barely two months to go before Christmas, we thought of buying clothes to wear for a December event. Gerlie got some items to complete a simbang gabi wardrobe while I chose to build an outfit for a simple Christmas party with friends.
So off to Department Store we go. Since it’s the first day of the 3-Day Sale, the mall opened at 9am. We started our challenge at around 10:30 and there are already long lines of shoppers at every cashier that early!
We Filipinos often say we don’t have money but when there’s a mallwide sale, you’d see a lot of people falling in line to the cashier with shopping bags on both hands.
Like what we’ve shared in our early shopping guide yesterday, it’s best that you take advantage of mall sale this early because you’ll never know if they would have a Christmas sale or not. So better avail the items on huge discounts even if it’s just October.
It’s also one great way to avoid the Christmas shopping rush. You know there will be a lot more shoppers who will have their last-minute Christmas shopping so to catch the worm, you must be an early bird. Haha.
Back to our shopping challenge. You know how girls are when we shop. Ilang ulit kaming iikot ng iikot sa buong ladies wear section bago pa kami makapili ng kung ano talagang gusto namin. Our shopping hunt lasted for a little more than an hour. Haha. Mabilis na yun, in fairness to us.
The best thing about the Department Store is that you have a very wide selection of clothing pieces, shoes, and accessories according to your taste and budget. Yun nga lang, maliliyo ka sa kakapili. We say, tiyagaan lang yan!
Did we survive the shopping challenge? I won’t spill yet, watch this!
Shop at SM City Batangas now and get a chance to win 1 of the 3 Yamaha Mio Fino at the raffle draw on Sunday, Oct. 21. And if you buy items with single receipt worth P1000, you can be the lucky winner of the iPad they’ll be giving away!
