I love the sales but you can also spend more than you can afford very quickly (normally on stuff you won’t wear or use).
So my biggest tip for the sales is to write one list of things that you need and a second list of things that you want. Only after the need list has been completed and ONLY if there is any money left then the wants list can be addressed.
My own list goes like this;
Christmas cards for next year
I pair of PJ’s
I pair of boots (I am still in my summer sandals and I have no winter shoes).
A cheap waterproof watch
Smellies for presents during the year
I have £30.00 to spend so lets see how I get on
