Your wedding day went like a dream. From the moment you said, “Yes” when he proposed, to the moment you returned from your honeymoon, the months of planning flew by…choosing the wedding gown, bridesmaid’s dresses, invitations, location, caterers, photographer etc. The hectic pace that frazzled your nerves and on occasion brought you to tears is over. Take a deep breath and join the real world. You now have a new title…wife.

The new you will wear many hats, some you already have and some new ones that you’ll be adding. If you thought planning a wedding was hectic, try juggling your career, your time, your new husband, your family, his family, your friends, his friends, your household, your budget and somewhere down the line, your children.

One way to alleviate some of that stress is by having a Personal Shopping Consultant assist with your household and personal needs. And before you begin to think that this type of service is only for the rich and famous, know that some Personal Shopping Consultants do not charge you a service fee.

Many times a Personal Shopping Consultant can provide you with:

  • An Automatic Delivery Service that allows you to set-up a customized order for the items that you use the most and have them delivered to your door saving you time and money. Just when you are running out of shampoo or laundry detergent or dog food, or whatever, it arrives at your door. You don’t order electricity by the day, week or month, do you? Why not then use this automatic delivery service?
  • An Automatic Gifts Service. Your Consultant helps you select the gifts for those special persons in your life, have them delivered directly to their address and on the date of your choice. Gifts for Weddings, Graduation, Business clients, Babies, Birthdays, Hanukah, Christmas etc. Think of the time and money you can save and embarrassment avoided! No more, Oops!
  • Additional Services such as: Honeymoon and Vacation Choices, Skin Care Clinics, Make-up Application, Fashion and Color Analysis, Professional Image, and much, much more.
  • There are many advantages to using a Personal Shopping Consultant, among them:
  • Shopping from the comfort of your home for high-quality, name-brand products with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
  • Personalized services to meet your household, personal and professional needs.
  • Making changes in your automatic orders anytime – add a product, delete a product, change quantity, change delivery date etc.
  • The convenience of paying when the items ship by credit card or bank debit card that displays the Visa or MasterCard logo.
  • The planning for monthly expenditures in advance, keeping your budget under control and avoiding the Impulse Buying Trap! (Why do you think supermarkets place the milk all the way in the back of the store?)

With a Personal Shopping Consultant, you have the time to do it all. You have the freedom to shop on your own terms, from your own home, on your own schedule. As a new Bride, having a Personal Shopping Consultant will help you establish an efficiently managed household system. This will help you save money and allow you and your husband more time together.

Smart shopping for the time-conscious consumer!
