Recognise that sound?

That’s the sound of your pocket money flying away during the sales.

Self-control. Who’s she??

Let us introduce her to you, with our cool checklist.

You can stay in control of your money, even with all👏that👏sales👏temptation.  

Let get started.

✔️Know what you want.
Don’t hit the sales empty handed. Make sure you head in with a list.

✔️ Know how much you want to spend
This is a big one. Set how much you want to spend before you get to the sales, that way you’ll be way less tempted to just buy whatever you see.

Don’t trust yourself with you card?
Just withdraw the amount in cash.  
You got this.

✔️ Plan your route
You know where you like to shop - head straight for your favourite stores, rather than wandering around. You won’t feel like you’re wasting time that way.

✔️ Think twice
A €10.00 pair of pants that you never wear is €10.00 in the trash. Need we say more?

✔️ Put your battle gear on
Sure it’s nice to look cute AF when you’re out shopping but you don’t sacrifice comfort for style totally. You’re gonna be on your feet for a while.

✔️ Rope in your BF
Who else is gonna tell you “sis that ain’t it”?

✔️ Install a math app
Ok so hang on. 20% off, 35% off, 70% reduction? That’s a lotta brain work. Sometimes its easy to see any sale as a bargain, when it really may not be. Download an app that calculates stuff for you in an instant.

✔️ Calm your nerves - and wait.
Go hunting towards the end of the sales period. Stores often start with smaller price drops - the big wins are towards the end of the sales.  

✔️ Get up early (ouch)
We don’t like this either. But it’s a well known fact that the later you leave it in the day, the longer the queues.

Ta da! There you have it.

One last tip.
Before you even get to the sales, why not clear out your drawers? You can make room for all your new bargains by donating or even selling your second hand items.  

Got the alarm set for 07:00?

You’re bossing it💪
