How to shop more consciously during sale time

26th December, 2019

The after Christmas sales can be a great time to pick up a bargain or two. That said it’s also easy to get caught up in the frenzy of markdowns and discounts that you end up buying something that you don’t particularly need or want simply because the allure of a sale item is too hard to resist.

The movement towards more conscious shopping is getting bigger and with good reason—we all want to consume less and make more considered choices and embrace less of a disposable mentality. And what better time to start than at a time when we’re encouraged to buy up big. Here are a few things to ask yourself before making a fashion purchase…

Do you own anything else like it?

We all tend to have things that we gravitate towards whenever we’re shopping so instead of buying just a different variation of something you already own stop and think about whether you really will improve or fill a gap in your wardrobe by buying that particular item. Because you don’t want to find that you’ve just stockpiled 10 different white t-shirts and only end up wearing two of them.

Is this going to last in the long term?

A bargain isn’t a bargain if it’s something that’s going to fall apart after a few wears. Instead focus on buying well made, quality items that will be with you years down the track. It may be something that you’ll have to pay a little more for, but it’s better than buying lots of cheaper things that you’ll need to replace constantly.

If this were more expensive would you still want to buy it?

We sometimes fall under the spell of a discounted price and forget if we actually really like something or just like how much it costs. So the next time you are considering making a sale purchase, ask yourself if it’s something that you’d still figure out a way to buy if it was more expensive. If you’d baulk at buying it at its original price then maybe think twice.

Can you afford it?

Another thing about shopping more consciously is that it’s healthier for our bank balances. It’s about phasing out impulse purchases that ultimately aren’t worth the cost and thinking about potential buys a lot more deeply. The most practical consideration of any sale item is the price tag. Be honest with yourself and ask if you can actually afford to buy it. If not, well it might be worth leaving it on the shelf. Shop slowly and thoughtfully.

Is it really going to make your wardrobe better?

This question has the potential to weed out a lot of unnecessary purchases. Whenever you find something that you think you want to buy on sale, ask yourself if it’s really going to improve your wardrobe for the better—this means that it’s something that it’s going to elevate things you already own and also make getting dressed every day easier. If you can’t honestly say ‘yes’ then direct your hard earned shopping budget to something a little more worthwhile.

My tips for sale shopping

26th December, 2016

Sale time! This is a great time of year to bag a bargain and restock your wardrobe but it can also be the time when you may end up splurging on things on impulse and end up having lots of items sitting at the back of your wardrobe for the rest of the year. This is why it’s important to have a shopping game plan when it comes to hitting the sales. Here’s what I always do when it comes to sale shopping in-store or online.

Compile a shopping list

A bargain isn’t really a bargain if you end up snapping up something that you had absolutely no intention of buying in the first place. This is why I always inspect my wardrobe and compile a list of things I need so I know exactly what I need to buy when I’m trawling my favourite online stores or browsing my favourite boutiques.

Be prepared to try on things

The crowds are crazy during the after Christmas sales so make things easier on yourself when you go to try things on by wearing an appropriate outfit. This means wearing something simple such as a dress that you can take on and off quite easily and also shoes that you can easily slip in and out of without too much fuss. Leave the strappy sandals at home and opt for a pair of slides instead.

Don’t settle for second best

The rush of trawling through sale items and finding something drastically reduced is understandable for those who love to shop but it’s also the time to be discerning. Only snap up things that truly fit the description of what you want and not something that is just close enough. If the neckline isn’t right on a dress or the pair of designer shoes you’ve tried on pinch your feet it’s best left on the shelf. You only want to buy things that you will definitely be able to wear.

Always know the returns policy

Make sure you protect yourself from buyer’s remorse by being aware of a store’s returns and exchanges policy. You may find that you need to take something back in the event it doesn’t fit or doesn’t work with your wardrobe and you don’t want to be caught by surprise to find that you’re unable to do so.
