One word which every college student can relate to is ‘Broke.’ College has just started and you don’t want to be THAT kid on the campus. So here we present you how to be penny wise and score more with less.

Now, before starting the list, a few pointers for street shopping in Delhi

  1. Carry a water bottle and thank me later.
  2. Carry cash, preferably with tons of change.
  3. If you plan to go crazy with your shopping then do carry a huge bag, to throw them all in.
  4. If you are not the best at bargaining, take someone who is along.
  5. Don’t worry if you could not get something at your quoted price. There is a good chance that you will score it at some other shop since all shops in the markets do have a lot of items in common.

    GK I M Block Market

     

This narrow market stocks high-end brands as well as street shops and hawkers who sell amazing earrings. If you are someone who is not good at bargaining then you might wanna come here for the fixed rate shops that sell clothes for as cheap as Rs. 350. The best part about this market is that it is very compact and doesn’t make you feel over whelmed with tons of options.
