Buying Luggage Is Not Just For Girls
If you love looking trendy
and in style, you’re probably aware that it’s not a preference that comes cheap. Wearing the latest fashions is going to cost you a lot, which is why it’s not a possibility for a lot of women. This isn’t to say that you’ll never be able to wear designer threads or own the most sought after accessories. In fact, it’s completely doable if you’re smart about what times during the year that you go shopping. Unless you’re making bank like Trump, you’re going to be restricted on just how much you can buy, but even on a budget you’ll be able to pick up some key items if you’re smart about when you shop.
Athletic Gear and Luggage
If you’re looking to pick up some cute new luggage to take with you on that summer trip you’ve planned but you don’t want to pay top price, you should start looking in early spring. During spring break season luggage tends to go on sale in most stores in order to appeal to the students who are looking to get away for their vacation. This means you can get quality brand-name (cute!) merchandise for a fraction of what you’d pay during the rest of the year.
Athletic gear also goes on sale in the spring. This is because in most places the weather is finally taking a turn for the better, which means people are going to want to start preparing for summer when they’re the most active. So if you need any kind of athletic shoe or sportswear for the activities you participate in, you need to start shopping before June rolls around.
If you’re looking to score some gorgeous jewellery, you’re going to want to shop in February. The sole reason for this is Valentine’s Day, which is when most jewellers will put their wares on sale in order to entice men to buy trinkets for their significant others. These aren’t deals meant exclusively for men, however; if you’ve been eyeing up that pair of diamond solitaire earrings and they’re a part of the Valentine’s Day sale, you should totally take advantage of that. Some of the more expensive, rare pieces probably won’t be on sale even during this time, so you may just have to settle for something cheaper that’s just as shiny.
Summer Is Coming.. Go Shopping
If you’re looking to pick up some cute summer threads, the best time to shop is from mid-August to mid-September. Summer clothes will be on clearance during this time, which means you can pick up a ton of stuff for a fraction of the price. Of course, you won’t be able to wear this stuff until next summer which means it won’t necessarily be in style, but if you don’t care about being up-to-date trendy that shouldn’t be an issue with you. Along with summer clothes
you’ll be able to find other summery things on sale, too—swimsuits and flip flops and dressy sandals should all be on sale at the same time.
If you’re looking to score some luxe items at low cost, you need to either go shopping during November’s Black Friday (in the States) or December’s Boxing Day (in Canada). Retailer’s slash their prices on these days (and some stores even put on sales all week long), which means you can pick up some pretty spectacular items for peanuts. For example, computers and tablets can be grabbed for as much as 75% off, which means you’d be insane not to try and take advantage of these sales.
Lots Of People Love Shopping
and Boxing Day sales aren’t just limited to electronics
, either. You can grab jewellery, clothes, furniture, appliances, and home décor for super cheap, as well. Basically, if you can think of it, you can probably get it on sale during either of these big shopping days. Just remember that you’ll have to contend with some pretty serious crowds in order to get any shopping done.
