5 Sales Shopping Tips for Black Friday.
It’s that time of year again when we all get totally besotted with bagging a bargain at the Black Friday sales, and that’s before we’ve even thought through our Cyber Monday strategy. But the problem with sales shopping is that it’s super easy to get lost in the ruck and maul so you end up going home with stuff you didn’t actually want or need. So in this day and age of shopping responsibly here are my 5 sales shopping tips for Black Friday.
First up make a list. Check through your closet and see where you have any gaps which need filling. Shopping from a list helps you keep focus in the frenzy of shopping in the sales season and will have you sporting the coolest of karmas on the day. If you need some extra advice on sorting through your closet check out our 5 Step wardrobe reboot post here. For help with your Style ID or your current body shape, head to our Start Here page here.
Secondly, create a budget and aim for staples. Whilst trends are fun to dip in and out of, fashion marches on and before you know it you will have forgotten all about this season’s animal print and be hankering after some SS19 brights. So chucking your money at transient trends in the sales is not the best laid plan. Think quality fabrics and beautifully cut pieces which will last and turn into timeless investments.
Next up, make sure you sign up for Reward or loyalty programmes with your favourite stores, online shopping sites and designers. They often send out ‘early bird’ or VIP sale previews with discount codes a couple of days ahead of time for members.
If you’re online shopping, pre-load your cart with items on your hit list the night before the sales start for easy and swift checkout the following day. Often your cart will remain intact with its selections for around 24 hours before its contents are deleted – perfect timing for nabbing them as soon as you arise on Black Friday sales day.
Finally get social. Join Facebook pages and follow Twitter feeds for your favourite brands and stores. You can often find deals and promotions which are drip fed via social pages and can give you a head start on that particular sales win that you have in mind.
So with these 5 sales shopping tips in mind, good luck out there and may your shopping bag be laden with lovely bargains.
