You can save a wad of cash if you buy these items at the Afterpay sales. Read on to see which stores are participating.

Sales can be really useful tools if you take advantage of them in the right way. The key is not to impulse buy and grab a bunch of things you don't really like or need. Instead, you should use these opportunities to buy the pieces that have been on your wishlist for a while - this saves you cash in the long run.

Afterpay Day is coming up and this is one of the best sale events we've seen all year. With confirmed participants like Showpo, Sheridan, Tony Bianco, BNKR and Adore Beauty, this is an unmissable opportunity to pick up all the things you've been wanting.

The best part is that every single retailer participating in this sale offers Afterpay so you can pay for your purchases in a manageable way. A few of the participating stores have been announced but we won't get the full list until Wednesday.

Read on to see 10 things you should take to the opportunity to buy at the Afterpay Day sale - and to see which stores will be on sale. You'll save yourself a stack of cash if you choose carefully.

Head to the Afterpay Day sale page for the full list of stores and discounts.

1. A hair straightener or hair dryer

These devices are really expensive, with prices of up to $400! So buying one on sale can really help you save. If you've been needing a new straightener or hair dryer, check out ry.com.au or Adore Beauty tomorrow.

2. A Spring Racing dress

Spring Racing is coming up quick! And you'll need one or more appropriate dresses if you're planning on heading to the races this year. Most retailers know this and really skimp on sales during this time. So if you want to save money on a Spring Racing dress, this is one of the few sale opportunities you'll get. Try BNKR, THE ICONIC or Showpo, all of which are in the Afterpay Day sale.

3. Stock up on your skincare

Do you always use the same cleanser and moisturiser? Well this is a good opportunity to stock up. You'd probably have to buy more in a few weeks or months anyway, except buying it now saves you money. ry.com.au or Adore Beauty will have you covered.

4. Sheets

Sheets are stupidly expensive. So if you've been needing some new ones, you should definitely buy them now in the sale. Sheridan, Pillow Talk and Country Road are all participating in the Afterpay Day sale - check out the sheets they have on offer.

5. Furniture

Furniture is also really expensive so it makes sense to take advantage of this sale. Sheridan and Myer will both have sales on tomorrow and they have some really beautiful coffee tables, sides tables, lounges and more!

6. Boots

Boots are a wear-everywhere-and anywhere staple. You'll always get use out of them. This is one of the thing fashionistas should stock up on. You're going to buy them eventually so just do it now and save money in the process. For boots on sale tomorrow try Tony Bianco, THE ICONIC and Rubi Shoes.

7. Dresses you can wear to weddings

Wedding season is fast approaching, so it's not a bad idea to stock up on a few cute dresses you can wear to these events. Head to Showpo, Stelly or even Princess Polly tomorrow to find some pretty pieces on the cheap.

8. Father's Day gifts

Don't forget about Dad! If you haven't already gotten him a pressie, get one at the sales tomorrow. What about a personalised 'Dad' bathrobe from Sheridan or some cute pieces from Peter Alexander?

9. Christmas presents

Don't leave your Christmas shopping to the last minute again this year. Why not pick up that cute skirt for your sister? Or grab those cushions for your mum? Try THE ICONIC, Sheridan, Cotton On and Typo to save on gifts. You absolutely won't regret it when December comes around.

10. Makeup

Is there a new palette or lippie you've been wanting? Treat yourself. It's cheaper to buy it all now rather than later. Princess Polly has some great makeup and so does Showpo. Otherwise try Adore Beauty and ry.com.au.
