How to get the most out of Boxing Day sales
Making the most of the Boxing Day sales requires a good plan. Here are a few tips to get you through the day.
- Try to get in early. Competition between retailers and shoppers is fierce on Boxing Day. This is great for bargain hunters because retailers try to outdo each other, so that's bigger savings for you. It also means that the best stuff might fly off the shelves before you have even got to the shop.
- You snooze, you lose! Try to get to the shops when they open. That way, you’ll have first dibs and might even be able to make it home early.
- Good value vs cheap. Huge sales can be overwhelming for shoppers. With everything seemingly so much cheaper, it’s easy to forget what you came into the shop for in the first place. Retailers can be crafty, too. Sometimes items that were poor sellers during the Christmas period will be flogged at well-below retail price just to get rid of stock.
- Don’t be fooled! First, look at the quality of the product and ask yourself honestly if you like it and will get use out of it. If the answer is no, keep moving!
- Plan ahead. You’re tired and full after Christmas and the crowds are huge - it’s the perfect recipe for mindless wandering and spending. Know what you want and how to get it to curve overspending.
- Draw up a wish-list and outline a budget for each item. You’ll save yourself hassle and will be less likely to overspend.
