Sydney as you know is among the top 10 in the world. Whether you look up Time, Forbes or CNN, Sydney is always there for cost of living and cost of property. If you starting as a graduate like me, never pay full price (Australia recommended retail).

Items never to buy at full price are:

  • Clothes
  • Shoes
  • Electronics 

My rule is that if the recommended retail overseas is more 50% less than Australia, to never buy it over here. I would like to support the local businesses but when I can get 2 for 1 online, it is ridiculous. The only reason to pay full price is if the purchase is an investment at that point in time such as a suit for a job interview. 

Always buy spare high-usage items when they are on sale such as:

  • Underwear
  • Socks
  • Business shoes
  • Belts
  • Shaving products
  • Toiletries 

I will be sharing my favourite online stores in the weeks to come.

Please share any good online stores in the comments.
