Do you see the words SALE or a certain percentage off on an item and your body gets a rush of wanting to buy it immediately? Been there, done that. But as much as we all love a good sale, it can be both a blessing and a curse. Sale-induced anxiety is real, and I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all made impulse purchases before as a result of it. Getting caught up in the urgency and excitement of a sale does not make for clear-headed shopping and that is why I;ve rounded up some tips for shopping during a sale:

Have a sales shopping list

The first you need to do when you find out that your favourite store is having a sale is to have a shopping list. It’s really important not to impulse buy because that is likely to result in you regretting that purchase later down the line. And the chances are you will find it months later stuffed at the back of your wardrobe! One way to combat this is to have a shopping list and to stick to it!

Use cash to encourage self-control

If you’re heading to a shop or store that has an ongoing sale and you feel comfortable enough you can withdraw the money as cash. This way you’re more conscious of your spending and you will act more wisely based on this. Once the money is gone, it’s gone! It’s time to go home!

The earlier you go for a sale shopping the better the items you get will be

As soon as you know about a sale, we suggest that you go ASAP. Well, that’s obvious, the later you are, the fewer options and sizes you’ll find. And, don’t forget your shopping list!

Don’t buy trendy clothes during sale season

Trends come and go, and even though the price might be tempting, buying a trendy piece of clothes at the end of a season sale will make it unwearable when it’s time to wear it again. Instead, go for basics and timeless pieces; the things that will last for the longest time.
