Black Friday sales most wanted list

Black Friday sales picks to snap up.

One of the most hotly anticipated dates in the discounted shopping diary has arrived in the form of Black Friday where we feel duty bound to hot-foot it to the stores to snap up piles of merch that we probably don’t really want or need. Having said that, if you approach the day with a level head and a bit of planning (don’t worry we brought you the planning to the party earlier this week… read about it here, all you need to bring is the level head), then you can snap up some awesome bargains.

For me, the reality of the Black Friday sales is that I don’t really need a pile of stuff, but I do like a designer label or two and I try to keep on trend without always being able to afford the price tag. So for Cyber week I’ve learnt that the best way to snap up discounted bargains and actually make them work for me is to have a most wanted list ready and scope out the best price available come the sales. For this, you can always take the hard work out of the process by using sites such as ShopStyle who allow you to put a nifty little ‘Sale Alert’ tracker on an item.

I’ve also figured out over the years, that the best things to buy in a sale are generally accessories. These high-end items perk up your regular everyday uniform like no other and definitely have you looking more on trend in one hit than trying to source a whole outfit.
