The Sale Survival Guide

Christmas is over! We can relax now, right? Wrong. The winter sales are here! If you’re anything like us, you’ll love using your hard-earned Christmas cash (it’s not easy being nice all year, right?) to bag some amazing bargains! To celebrate tomorrow’s launch of the amazing Want That Trend Sale, we’ve put together a Sales Survival Guide to help you make the most of it.

1. Stay online!

We’ve all been there. Setting the alarm for 5:00am to beat the queues is not an ideal way to nurse the hangover from the day before! Shop the sales online instead – that way you can stay curled up warm in bed or on the sofa with a nice hot brew! If you are going to the shops… good luck!

2. Plan, plan, plan!

Plan everything! Make a list of what you actually need to get and set yourself a budget accordingly. It could be a good idea to have a list of shops you want to look at too instead of scanning everywhere – this could waste time and make you miss out on the best bargains!

3. Work in advance

If you’re super organised, find the things you want before the sales begin and add them to your wishlist or basket. As soon as the sales hit, you’ll be able to find exactly what you want quickly and without stress!

 4. Avoid impulse buying

We all know how easy it is to fall in love with something and then never wear it. Planning will help avoid this, but if you see something that you think you absolutely need, mentally plan an outfit with the item before clicking the add to basket button! This is especially important if it’s particularly pricey, but could still save you a lot of money and time in the long run! Let’s not forget about the hassle of returns…

 5. Have a little patience

Online shopping is definitely the way forward, however the busy traffic that comes with sales can make sites run slow and even crash. Be patient, but be quick and grab your bargains before it’s too late! (We still think this is better than battling through the shops though.)

Check out the Want That Trend Sale launching tomorrow and grab some amazing bargains! Don’t forget to tag us in your photos using #wantthattrend so we can see them – you’ll be in with a chance of being featured on the website too!
