Three Reasons Why I Don't Like HMR

I have only two rules in my life when it comes to purchasing expensive items. Buy cheap and good quality or buy expensive items but wait until it's on sale. Yes, I am frugal like that. Every penny counts and that I want it spent wisely. Who doesn't? With the rising costs of all commodities, we really have to budget our finances well. When we moved, all I wanted to do was to redesign the house to match our personality. But it would mean alot of money if I give it one go. So I said, wait and hunt for bargain finds. That is why I love going to HMR ever since we discovered this store some few years back. They are always our last and final resort to all our needs. Here are few things to expect at HMR:

1. Overwhelming choices. Before I buy a certain thing, what I usually do is to look for cheap and good quality alternatives. That way, I get to really buy what is best and won't regret it afterwards. But at HMR, once you get into their store, there will be unlimited choices because you tend to get everything on their display. They have all sorts of products you need from furnitures, toys, equipments, household appliances, kitchen appliances and everything else, name it--they almost have it!

2. Sky's the limit budget. The very reason why we go to HMR is because of frugal reasons but it is quite ironic when you wish that you have all the fund to buy what you want need. Again, because of the reason number 1, there will really be overwhelming choices but you just need to stick with what you really want need. 

3. Hoarder alert. If you are the type of person who loves to hoard stuff, then I am giving you a warning already as I have mentioned in number 1, there will be a lot of choices and 2, it will definitely break your budget. HAHA. But I was able to buy what I need in my kitchen thru HMR. I am now a happy domestic mom because of them. 

Now here are my tips in going to HMR. 

1. Hit and miss. Their items are mostly new (unopened), market returns (others with boxes but opened and used), or damaged. If you are a first time customer, look for a sales agent that will assist you and don't hesitate to ask them details regarding the items you are going to purchase. They are willing to help and assist you with what you need. If you are quite particular with warranty, then this is not the place for you. They only offer replacement and sometimes repair but if items are not available in the store, their resort is to offer refund but again, this will depend on store branches. 

2. Search every nook and cranny of the store. Not all their branches are organized and have the same stocks and due to the volume of customers going in and out as well as the ones they take out from the storage, it tends to get cluttered. So you really have to allot ample time when you go there because who knows? You just might find a hidden treasure there. HAHA. 

3. Always check. If you are decided on purchasing a certain item and it contains parts example: toy, always check for the completeness. HMR puts sticker on the box whether they have checked the toy if it's working, complete and has missing parts. But because of the volume of customers including the kids going in and out, it tends to get misplaced at some point. 

Here are some of the good finds  got from HMR. Please do note that I got them from different branches already.
