How I wish I could wear that £525 Jimmy Choo sandals for Tola’s wedding, that Peruvian hair that costs N150,000, the latest galaxy tab, a Louis Vuitton Bag, a spa treatment oh my, would love to have the Kim-K look but I earn just N60,000 monthly….. Oh how I wish…
*snap* come out of your life of delusion and face reality. Like Mary, there are a lot of people who live in a mirage; they want luxuries they cannot afford because they want to “feel among”. It’s popularly called keeping up with the Joneses.
They cut across all age grades and can be seen in tertiary institutions, work places, social gatherings and even religious gatherings, these people would love to be associated with celebrities, want to be noticed, want to be in the face of cameras and love to be acknowledged always yet, they don’t have the means for their wants.
Amazingly, their mirage can be a reality and thus a target market for online discount sites that would enable them buy their desired goods at a cheaper rate and also allow for flexible payment plan. In Nigeria, discount sites like dealdey.com, quicksell.com.ng are poised to help them meet their needs as they get discounts off their desires.
