Buy high quality furniture at low prices thanks to this year’s Boxing Day sales.
Boxing Day is synonymous with sales. Fact. It’s one of the biggest shopping days on the calendar and, with Christmas well over, it’s also the day for YOU to shop for those much needed items for YOURSELF such as furniture and homewares.
According to Roy Morgan and the Australian Retailers Association (ARA), last year Australians spent $2.072 billion on Boxing Day, which was an increase of $72 million on the previous year. If that pattern continues, you can expect Australia is aiming to push the $2.1 billion spending mark this year.
Big ticket items such as furniture are one of the best bargains that can be had on the date. According to Australian Unity, on average, Australians spend $59 on furnishings every week and with home renovation shows like The Block piquing every DIYers interest, sprucing up the home is hot on everyone’s “must do” lists.

What furniture items do people typically buy on Boxing Day?
Boxing Day is a great excuse to spruce up your home with new furniture and a more modern look. Typically, Australians will snap up what brand names they can that are on sale and aren’t averse to purchasing homewares and linen on the day.
In terms of furniture, it’s a good time of the year for purchasing new homes or moving home, so basic furniture and appliances are sought after. This can include, washing machines, fridges, furniture packages, pots and pans and outdoor settings.
Updating office furniture is also popular during this time of the year, particularly in the lead up to the start of a new working year.
How much do people typically save?
This will depend on what you’re purchasing and how many pieces of furniture you wish to upgrade. As furniture is a big-ticket item and savings can start from 10% and go up to 70%, you can expect to save in the hundreds (and possibly even thousands) during Boxing Day sales.
