The last thing you want is to go into a big sale not knowing what you want. This will result in impulse buying clothes that will only sit in your closet and be forgotten until the next sale.
Instead, you can create a wishlist of everything you need for your new year wardrobe and set a budget. You’ll also want to stick to buying timeless pieces that will not go out of style in the next six months.
Are Black Friday or Boxing Day sales better?
If you take it at face value, you will notice that many deals during Black Friday are around 10-30% off. Compared to the 50-70% off offers during Boxing Day deals, it’s more of a bargain than Black Friday promos.
