I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of sale shopping, mainly due to working in retail, I can't stand the mess, the rummaging and people grabbing at the clothes with no respect at all. However, sometimes I have to make myself go to the sales, I do love a bargain after all!
My tactic is that I check out the sales online first, then go to the shops to see if I can get the things I want. If I know what I'm looking for, it makes sale shopping a lot easier and a lot less stressful. I also find that this is a surefire way to stop myself from buying things on impulse and 'just because'.
Most sales start well before Christmas now, so by this time of the year, a lot has already sold out. On the plus side though, the further reductions have stepped into place and things are going for really great prices - definitely my favourite time to be shopping!
Below are my favourite things in the sales at the moment, from some of my favourite shops on the HighSstreet... I might just have to treat myself.
