Or, skip the crowds and shop online
If the thought of dragging yourself out of bed early and braving the Boxing Day crowds makes you shudder, then 2017 might be your year to shop online. Online shoppers have access to great Boxing Day deals, all without the hustle and bustle of the sales.
Get there early. To avoid missing out on the good stuff, it’s a good idea to arrive when the stores open. You’ll stay ahead of the crowds, get first dibs on discounts, and may even be able to go home early. If you’re planning to make the Boxing Day sales online, doublecheck the start time. Online stores often beat the regular retailers, even by a day or two.
Do your research. Shopping centres, department stores and big and small retailers will slash their prices to compete with each other on Boxing Day. That means that the item you’d like to purchase will probably be available in more than one place. Do your research to find the best price.
Make a budget. A budget is helpful to avoid overspending. Set yourself a price limit for each item on your list and try to stay within your price range.
Come prepared. Comfortable clothes and walking shoes will go a long way to making your day more enjoyable. Remember to eat and pack a bottle of water. If you’re planning on a new wardrobe, wear clothes and shoes you can easily take on and off.
There's something about Boxing Day sales that can't be missed. Whether you're willing to brave the crowds on the day for that bargain or are more inclined to sit back and shop the sale from the comfort of your own home, there's heaps to buy and even more to save this Boxing Day.
There's nothing like nabbing a bargain, especially on Boxing Day when the sales are plenty and the markdowns are astonishing. But where are the best places to get the biggest deals. We have a few ideas...
