I LOVE a Sale - i actually buy the majority of my clothes in the sale and on sale sites.  Here are a few of my sale shopping tips that i practice at least 4 times a year!

  • Make sure you LOVE what you buy - a good test is to think about if you would pay full price for it (although a bargain is also very tempting and can obviously make you like something more). 
  • If you see something in the sale you love - get it, you can always send it back but it will sell out of you don't buy it now!  
  • Think ahead - buy pieces that i know will stay fashionable for a long time or are classics that will see you through a few more seasons.  I recently bought a winter jumper that i'll keep until its cold and have an amazing smart black dress (£15 from £70) with the tags still on that i plan to wear to an event and the end of the summer.  
  • I do most of my clothes shops online and i particularly like Sale shopping online as you don't have to deal with the mess and carnage of the shop floor.  Use the filters eg. shop by size.
  • If there is something you love but its not available in your size keep checking back as sometimes things get sent back and become available again.
  • Always buy the correct size - from experience if its to small/big it bugs me and i don't wear it as much.
  • Keep a look out for things that are usually expensive eg. swimming costumes, coats, leather bags etc. - you'll always need them and when they are are half price they are much more appealing.
