Yes, the summer sales are here and there are some great deals to be had, whether it is in-store or online.
The summer sales are a fantastic opportunity to buy the items that you have liked and put in your “wish list”. Whether it is buying clothes (or shoes) to see though the rest of summer, or shopping for that ‘winter sun’ holiday later in the year, it’s a perfect time to pick a bargain.
The best time to shop in the sales is when they have just started, as there are more sizes and more in things you may want available. Towards the end of the sales there may be more discounts available but what is left will be rubbish and what has not sold.
When you go shopping in the sales, buy things you like. Think what you can wear with it, that you already own, and how many ways can you wear it – I always aim for three. Never buy things simply because they are in the sale, as you are unlikely to wear them. Doing so results in these items taking up valuable space in your wardrobe. Also, try on before you buy, not all shops offer refunds on sale items if you later change your mind.
These are my summer sale purchases so far.
