1. Selling crap on eBay
Whether someone bought you a really crappy Christmas gift or you never wore that dress you bought in the January sale last year, when it comes to needing a bit of extra dough, us girls don’t think twice about selling our unwanted things. Business women indeed.
2. The ‘vintage’ label
When we’re really desperate to sell stuff, we’re obviously going to label everything as 'vintage'. Remember, vintage is the new modern.
3. Making immoral returns
We want a new going out dress for Friday night but there’s no way we’re wearing that dress from last week. Dresses have short lifetimes in our wardrobe so what do we do when we need a new one, but can't possibly afford it?
Buy and return! I may or may not have returned THAT dress I chundered on and hand washed with no fragrance washing liquid.
4. Boots offers
Everyone knows that when you buy your drugstore beauty bits, it’s gonna be from Boots…3 for 2 across all beauty? Hell yes we’re gonna buy. We’ll also make sure the one we get free isn’t just a £1 save either. Us girls make the most of offers.
5. Travelling in packs
Women work as a team on GNO. All we have to do is look good and feel good and bat our eyelashes a little bit. Girls take priority when it comes to nightclubs and lets be honest, we do take advantage.
6. Blagging taxis
We’re not going be charged ONE pound to run back in the house and grab our ID. Instead, we’ll ask the taxi man how his day was and emotionally mess with him until he's our new bestie. Works every time.
7. Free drinks
We’re not made of money. If we’re on GNO and we happen to walk along the bar and someone happens to asks us if we want a drink, we’d be silly to say no, right?
8. Ordering water…
...at Nando’s and then filling it up with lemonade. Seriously, who’s gonna know?
9. Knocking down Primark prices (despite being dirt cheap anyway)
Why buy 1 top when you can get 10 at Primarni? If it has the tiniest nick or make up stain on it we WILL lie and say there are no other sizes left on the rack. That's an extra 10% off - ca ching!
10. Stealing hotel amenities
When we’re on holiday there’s no way we’re leaving that hotel without taking every single tiny product we can find. Our mums used to do it and so do we. The traditions lives on.
