We ladies all know how stressful sale shopping can be- although you might be able to grab a bargain, shopping in the sales can result in huge crowds, long queues and a big headache. To help you get what you've been lusting after this season, we've thought up the ultimate guide to making the most of sale shopping.
- Arriving early is vital when hitting the sales, and will help you get the best bargains before the crowds burst through the doors. If possible, try to get there just before the shop opens if it's a smaller sale. This means you'll beat the end of day rush and can take your time browsing the selection. For a bigger sale, you might need to get there up to an hour before the store opens to be at the head of the queue.
- Know what it is you're looking for when you enter the store. You can then head straight to the most relevant sale rack so you can grab your items before anyone else gets them. If possible, check online beforehand to see what styles you like. That will give you a better idea of where to go and avid rummaging through the racks for hours on end.
- Take a friend with you! Sale shopping is always more fun and productive when you're with your bestie. They can hunt for the best bargains with you, and you can give each other a heads up when you find something you just know the other can't live without.
- Check the store's returns policy before you start sale shopping. We all know the struggle of an impulse buy that just isn't what you thought it would be once you take it home. To avoid any disappointment later, make sure you know the store's return policy for sale items. You'll then be covered if you decide at a later date that it's not what you're looking for.
Follow our guide and you'll be sure to have an easy, stress-free sale shopping experience!
