At some point or another, you will want to get some alcohol, but underestimate their price. You will head to the liquor store, check out the prices and wonder how you could possibly make the purchase work on a budget.
Well don’t fear, here are five quick tips to help you have fun and still keep some money in your wallet:
1. Go to the liquor stores with price matching
Chances are, most liquor stores will do whatever they can to get your business. Some will even go as far as price matching. So do your research before you head out.
2. Attend booze tasting events
Some liquor stores offer some sort of deal or discount on your purchase if you attend any of their tastings. Free booze and a discount for your purchase? What’s better than that?
3. Buy in bulk during sales
If you notice a discounted price for your favourite bottles, buy twice as much as you normally would now and then figure out how you’re going to store them all once you get home.
4. Check the price per millilitre
Although the sticker price on some bottles may appear to be cheaper than others, that may not mean that the bottle is actually cheaper. By shopping in terms of price per ml, you might be able to snag one or 1.5 litre bottle of booze for the same or cheaper price than your standard 750ml bottle.
5. “Like” your liquor store’s Facebook page
Some liquor stores will give you a small discount of up to 15 per cent if you “like” their Facebook page. Make sure to ask next time you’re in the store. If not, you can still keep up to date with the prices and get a hang of what’s going cheap and what’s not.
Whether or not you’re buying bottles for yourself, family, friends, or for a party, it’s always good to save money while doing so. So keep these tips in mind next time you shop.
