How to shop in the Boxing Day sales

Nikki Parkinson Fashion, How to 8 Comments

Just a quick one, Stylers … I’ll be back later today with a Christmas wrap-up but thought this timely reminder was a good one if you’re heading to the Boxing Days Sales today.

Repeat after me: I will not buy a new piece of clothing JUST BECAUSE it’s on SALE.


Key sales shopping tips

1. Go with a list – you’ve done your seasonal wardrobe edit, haven’t you? What are the gaps missing from your summer wardrobe? That’s what you should be buying.

2. Allocate more of your shopping budget to buying classic summer pieces. Do you need a new swimsuit, work outfits, party dress?

3. Wear comfortable clothes that are easy to take on and off. You MUST try on everything you’re potentially buying. No time to try? Walk away.

4. Start your shopping day at opening time and get out before the crowds – and change rooms – get crazy.

5. Stay focussed. Do not be seduced by the % off signs. Be seduced by the clothes and accessories you actually need.

Good luck. It’s a shopping jungle out there.

Or stay at home and click away online … the smart people have already started sales shopping this way.

Let me know what you’re looking for and what you end up buying.

  1. I went to the stores today, seeing as I didn’t want to trek into the city, which was the only place open yesterday. It was so crowded, i’ve never actually been to a boxing day sale before. I was very proud of myself, and only bought what I went in looking for!

  2. I didn’t go to boxing day sales this year. The thought of pushing through people and waiting in queues put me off. I have even stayed away from online shopping! I always get caught up in the moment. Sometimes I think I’m only buying because of the sales and not because I need it.

  3. Hi Nikki I think I will stick to online buying today and the shops are not open here anyway till tommorow and I got pretty spoilt yesterday and got a new dress from my son and his girfriend and lots of other goodies I will IG a pic later for you.For once I think my wardrobe is fine how it is,which is great no going shopping for things I DON”T need,I think I might just have a little rest today:) You looked like you got some lovely gifts too,and I hope you had a lovely Christmas day x
