It’s that time of year when the shops are filled with sales and if you’ve seen my latest fashion haul on my YouTube channel you’ll see I just cannot resist bagging a bargain when it comes to my wardrobe.. and Florence’s for that matter.
Sometimes though, it can be difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for when it comes to sale shopping and then when you do, it’s not in your size – hate that!
Find out when your favourite retailers are set to launch their sales
It’s fairly easy to find out when your favourite High Street retailers are likely to go into sale. Shops like Next publish their sales dates around two weeks before and you can easily find out with just a quick google search. Once in the know, you can make sure you’re among the first shoppers to get your hands on the best bargains!
Try everything on
There’s nothing worse than going shopping, coming home and realising that your recent purchases don’t fit and then having to dredge back into town to return them. Half the time, I forget to take them back and then they just sit, unworn until I eventually give them to the charity shop. During sale season, it’s likely there will be less of each style and item and so the chance of being able to exchange something for a different size might not be possible, so try everything on before you buy.
Shop from your Sofa
I recently discovered a fabulous website called Love the Sales. Love the Sales have collated all of your favourite retailers sale items and put them all in one place for easy peasy sale shopping you can do with your feet up!
Thinking ahead while shopping the sales is so important, especially when shopping for wardrobe staples or children’s clothing. I’ve been able to pick up quite a few things for the autumn and next summer for Florence by sizing up and by doing so have managed to take advantage of some fab savings.
