How to Successfully Shop Sales

Winter sales are in a full swing and products are seducing us with reduced prices. I know that can be very tempting and make you buy everythiiing, but it's important not to lose your judgment and be blinded by low prices. To avoid ending up with a pile of things you don't really need, here is some advice to keep in mind when shopping on sales:

MAKE A PLAN (AND STICK TO IT)
Don't rush into sales, but make a plan. The best way to go shopping on sales is in the morning during the week, when there's not a lot of people. Make sure you're in a good mood and dress properly. If you're buying a skirt that will go with the blouse you already have, don't forget to take it with you. Freshly washed hair and nice makeup also helps - you'll feel good and most likely find the item you're looking for. Also write down all the things you need and even more important - stick to it!

THINK BEFORE YOU BUY
We can easily get carried away by seeing all those things with reduced prices. Then we usually end up buying stuff we don't need at all. So remember to only buy things that are written on your list and that you really need. I have this "Love at the first sight" rule which basically means that if I don't fall in love with specific item the minute I try it on, I don't buy it.

 

INVEST IN TIMELESS PIECES
Rather buy one high-quality product than many cheaper ones. Sales are especially good for buying expensive designer pieces that you had previously seen and otherwise can't afford. It's better to invest a little more money in the piece that you really like rather than spend less money on cheap clothes that you won't wear very often.

DOUBLE CHECK THE ITEM
Always make sure that the thing you're buying isn't damaged, because usually things bought on sale can't be returned.

SHOP ONLINE

If you repel long queues at the cashiers, you can still shop online. Even if you don't like the item later, most online retailers offer the possibility of returning purchased products, so there is no reason for concern that something wouldn't be the right size or wouldn't suit you. You can easily return your purchase. (Pssst, Asos and Net-a-porter have a huge sales up to 70% off!)


ASK QUESTIONS
Here are some questions to ask yourself before buying a product (and help you avoid failed purchases):
  • Is this item on my 'to buy' list?
  • Would I buy this item even if it wasn't on sale?
  • Does it fit me good?
  • What can I wear it with?
  • Will I wear it more than once?

If you answer all these questions positive, then BUY it! :)

I hope you find this article helpful. Now tell me, do you go to sales or prefer shopping online? What do you usually buy? I can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments! Xo
