Conquering The Boxing Day Sales | Blogmas Day 12

by - December 25, 2017


Hello, lovelies! I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas. If you're like me and the celebrations have finished then you may already be planning the shopping trip to indulge yourself in. I'm currently on my way to the shops and while I wait to get there, I've put together some tips and tricks.

Boxing Day shopping is a lot like a military operation. There are certain steps that must be taken in order to have a successful shopping trip.

If you don’t know already, I am obsessed with fashion and beauty and I L O V E to shop! For the last 4 years, I’ve ventured out after Christmas for the Boxing Day Sales and I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks along the way to making it a successful shop. Because going out shopping and not picking up anything is the worse thing! Especially when you’ve dedicated a day to it!!

Like I said earlier, Boxing day shopping is a lot like a military operation and here is how we conquer it…

Step 1- Be prepared! It can feel a lot like you’ve landed in chaos when you get to the shops. To land on your feet, have a few ideas of what you want to buy and where to go. Before I go out, I put together a small mental list of some items I’d like to pick up. On the way there, my friend and I plan the shops we want to hit and in what order. This will set you on your feet and after a successful purchase, you’ll find your rhythm.

Step 2- Arrive Early but not too early! You want to get there somewhat early to have a good choice of the items in the sale but you don’t want to get there too early otherwise you’ll get stuck in the queues and waste your day. Arriving a little later will guarantee a good choice of what’s on sale and you’ll miss the queues by 15-30 minutes.

Step 3- Shop methodically. Stick to the plan you made of what shops to hit and in what order. Once that’s done and you have most of the things you came out for, you can start looking in other shops.

Step 4- Don’t Rush and stay calm. There’s no need to rush around like headless chickens from shop to shop. You’ve dedicated the whole day to shopping and by taking your time in each shop, you’ll find some hidden treasures. You’ll also find yourself as the calm amongst the storm which is great for the mind. 

Step 5- Boxing Day shopping sets off the new year. I always pick up a few clothes that I know will sort me through the year ahead. Take advantage of the sales and buy things you like! Don’t feel restricted by the weather outside, I’m that person who buys a few summer items when it’s minus 2 outside. My Mum’s always telling me off but I was brought up to take advantage of the opportunity. And that, I do

Those are my tips and tricks for conquering the Boxing Day Sales. Whether you’re ready to hit the shops on the busiest day or wait a few days, 
Happy Shopping!!
