5 Things You Can Borrow Instead of Buying

What are the 5 things you can borrow?

When it comes to shopping, you may spend months saving up to buy certain items, spending hours or days going in and out of stores searching for them only to find that in the end, you only end up using them once or twice. To save you time and money, we’ve compiled a list of items that you can borrow instead of buying!


1 – Money (Using a Credit Card)


Not only is it possible to borrow things, but you can also borrow money. To do this, a credit card is a perfect solution as you can return the money within a short period of 48 to 58 days. For instance, if you’ve run out of money this month and need to buy something urgently, you can use your credit card and return the money as soon as you receive your next pay check.

2 - Books


If you are a book worm who constantly spends your income on new books, consider saving your money and borrowing books from your friends or libraries instead. If you’re the type who likes to keep books and read them over and over again, there are certain places where you can find books for less than half price like 'Soor Al-Azbakeya.' In addition, many websites offer downloadable versions of books for free.

3 - Clothes


If you have many important occasions which require your attendance and you feel the need to buy a new outfit for each one, you may find yourself running out of money pretty quickly. Instead, why not save your money and raid a close friend or family member’s closet for some outfit options (if they are nice enough to let you do so, of course!) Many stores also offer outfit rentals at much lower prices than original sale prices.


4 - Travel Luggage


Sometimes travel plans happen unexpectedly. For instance, you may find yourself needing to take a long trip and did not account for a large enough travel bag to carry all your belongings. Travel luggage is known to be quite expensive, especially considering it is a seasonal purchase. Therefore, borrowing a bag may be an excellent option to consider.


5 - Netflix 


If you want to spoil yourself and binge on a Netflix series but don’t have the money to pay for a monthly subscription at the moment, you can always ask to use a friend or family member’s account for the time being. That way, you get free access, and you can always return the favor at a later date.
