1. Bedside Caddy

Zanui - 15% off site-wide

New price: $38.21 | RRP: $44.95 | Saving: $6.74

This is something I only just realised existed, and oh my gosh, I need one. I can't even tell you the number of times I've nearly stepped on my laptop on the ground because I just chucked it next to my bed once I was done.

This product allows you to free up space on your floor and bedside table by storing your glasses, books, magazines and laptops. You can also score it for 15% off so seriously this one is a no-brainer.

2. HeatGear Edgelit Leggings

Under Armour - 30% off everything

New price: $45.5 | RRP: $65 | Saving: $19.5

As someone who took two months off the gym, it's officially time to get back into it. Next month is spring and I am 100% not ready.

There's nothing like a bit of new fitness gear to get the gym motivation back into gear. So when I saw Under Armour offering 30% off, I thought why not?

These particular leggings not only look flattering, but they are also pretty high quality when it comes to fitness gear. They're compression tights so they give an ultra-tight, second-skin fit, and according to Under Armour, they make you feel "more powerful" – and I need all the help I can get right now.

3. Genuine silk pillowcase

Showpo - 20% off store-wide

New price: $31.96 | RRP: $39.95 | Saving: $7.99

There are actually numerous benefits to owning a silk pillowcase, and one of them is that you look like one of those people that have their lives together.

Additionally, they keep your skin healthy, reduce hair damage such as split ends and are naturally hypoallergenic. If there's one item you should be adding to your skincare and hair care routine, it's one of these bad boys.

Paying $39.95 for a genuine silk pillowcase is already on the cheap side, but with an extra 20% off on top, you can't really say no.

4. Dr. Martens 1460 8 Eye Nappa Boots Black

General Pants Co. - 30% off site-wide

New price: $181.30 | RRP: $259 | Saving: $77.70

After recently becoming the brand new owner of a pair of Dr. Martens, I really suggest this purchase.

While they take a while to wear in and you'll want to wear bandaids when breaking them in, these boots are up there with the comfiest shoes I've ever worn. They go with literally every outfit and they're a great option for both day and night.

They are kind of expensive, but they last years, and when you can score them for $77.70 off, you should just buy them. Simple as that.

5. Matching silk pyjamas

Beginning Boutique - 25% off site-wide

New price: $44.96 | RRP: $59.95 | Saving: $14.99

Okay, so now that you've just purchased yourself a silk pillowcase, you need a fancy pair of pyjamas to match.

These pyjamas from Beginning Boutique are not only adorable, but they come in a range of colours including champagne, red and blue.

Even though it's still winter, these will be a fabulous set to have come summertime as they're super breathable and incredibly comfortable.

6. Levi's jeans

Myer - 50% off the second item of women's jeans by Levi's, Calvin Klein Jeans, Tommy Jeans, Guess, Articles of Society, ONLY and Riders by Lee

New price: $74.98 | RRP: $149.95 | Saving: $74.98

Getting yourself a good pair of quality jeans is key during a sale event. It's often during these events that you will score the best deal on a pair, and seriously, you can never have enough jeans.

I've had a similar pair of the 501s for about four years, and it's probably time for me to buy some new ones. However, what I love about this deal is that it encourages you to buy not one but two pairs because apparently, I need encouragement to shop.

Getting 50% off your second item gives you such a significant discount that you can really justify purchasing one pair at full price. Plus, just in case you missed the above message – you can never have enough jeans!

7. Real Techniques Everyday Essential

boohoo - 50% off everything

New price: $22.50 | RRP: $45 | Saving: $22.50

Speaking of things that you can never have enough of – let's talk makeup brushes!

You should be replacing your makeup brushes every six months to one year, and yeah, that was news to me too. So given that I have to replace them a lot quicker than I originally thought, it means I'm looking for a good deal.

boohoo is offering 50% off everything for Afterpay Day, including their beauty section which is actually pretty good. They stock Bondi Sands, Ardell and Real Techniques. This Everyday Essential kit is great to cover all your bases and includes a foundation brush, powder brush, blush brush, eye brush and a beauty sponge.

8. Reliquia Jewellery Letter Necklace

THE ICONIC - 25% off thousands of styles

New price: $126.75 | RRP: $169 | Saving: $42.25

Ever since buying a Reliquia Jewellery zodiac necklace, I've been pretty obsessed with the brand. The range is the perfect blend of iconic designs with a bit of an edgy vibe and that's right up my alley.

That's why the letter necklaces are definitely getting an "add to cart" because they're just different. The sizing and design of the font set them apart from other initial necklaces I've seen. Plus, when they are 25% off, it's worth a little splurge.

9. Lack of Colour Celestial Boater Hat

Princess Polly - 20% off site-wide

New price: $159.20 | RRP: $199 | Saving: $39.80

I'm a big fan of a hat. Bad hair day? Fix it with a hat. Need to wash your hair but can't be bothered? Fix it with a hat. Not sure if your outfit is too plain? Fix it with a hat and call it fashion, honey.

Hats are seriously one of the best items you can have in your wardrobe. They literally match with pretty much any outfit and add that cool factor that I don't have naturally. The Lack of Colour Celestial Boater Hat is on my list because it's also that little bit different from other hats on the market, so you really stand out from the crowd.

So those are exactly what's getting added to my cart this Afterpay AfterYAY sale. Yes, my bank account might be a little sad, but when the deals are this good, you're pretty much MAKING money. Not really, but oh well.

Now, go forth my little shopping elves and enjoy the third best day of the year and don't forget to...
