HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF BLACK FRIDAY

black

Black Friday hysteria is here. I am a total slave to a sale and this annual shopping event taps into my inner bargain-hunter. For the last year I’ve been up at the crack of dawn and have saved around £400 overall. But, it can be overwhelming and how do you know if you’re really getting a good deal or have just given into the adrenaline-fuelled sales high? Here’s everything you need to know to shop up a storm from the comfort of your bed

BE PREPARED

One thing that has held me in good stead every year is having a plan. This is not a time to window shop so prepare your website links of everything you want in advance. Bookmark them and you’ll save a lot of time looking for what you want on the day.

HEAD TO TECH

Technology by far has the most impressive discounts than any other sector. Need a new juicer or flat screen TV? Now’s the time to get involved.

STAY AWAY FROM THE CLEARANCE

These items are on the Last Chance rack for a reason – they’re old stock that have been dragged out for the occasion.

BUY CHEAP BUT AVOID CHEAP CUTS

As tempting as it is to snap up those £4 pair of jeans with the fixer-upper hem, it’s not worth it and you’ll regret it as soon as they fall apart. Be smart with your buys and make good choices for investment pieces.

AVOID THE DEALS

Oooh two for one? Even better, right? Wrong. You’ll end up over-spending on things you didn’t want in the first place and it’s how clever marketing gets us every time.
