What to buy in the January sales
Are January sales better than Black Friday?
After the rush of Black Friday and the tsunami of Christmas deals, you may be thinking that shops are all out of wrapping paper and deals, but you'd be wrong! January brings with it the start of a whole month of sales, a whole month of happiness and excitement for the likes of you, me, and pretty much everyone because, at the end of the day, who doesn't love a bargain?!
For all we love Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday offers, the fact remains that in the UK there's nothing to beat the British January shopping spree. Every year thousands of shoppers up and down the country after Christmas queue outside their favourite retailers (usually in the pouring rain) to get their hands on the best deals. This year, though, you'll be able to shop like a pro and beat the rush with these tips we're giving you to get the biggest January deals.
Forget about checking the shop opening times: this year you'll get the biggest January discounts from the comfort of your home. The future is now, and the rise of ecommerce has made the high street an extravagance. There's no need to spend your time queuing outside the shops, you can get all of the best deals online, and save even more with our January sales deals. Shop online and get all of your clothing deals, electronics offers, health & beauty discounts and more whilst sat at home with a nice cup of tea and that "last" mince pie! These are our top tips to a stress-free Winter sales 2022.
January sales tips
The January sales are a wonderful opportunity to get all the things you need at the best possible prices. But with the great temptation that is having widespread markdowns across all shops and in all segments, it pays to approach bargain hunting with a plan. You need to know exactly what to buy in the January sales. Make sure you make a thorough list of what it is you need and where you're going to get it. It's important that you know what websites you're heading to first and what products you're meant to be getting from them. Subscribing to brands' newsletters is also a quick and easy way to ensure you save. You'll be the first to hear about when the sales go live as well as any secret subscriber discounts and deals.
If you've got a long list of items to buy, make sure you prioritise them before you start. This will help you in two ways: obviously, it creates a hierarchy, which means you can focus on getting your must-have items first and your nice-to-haves later. But it also means that you have to set yourself a budget. Now, this is where you're going to have to start getting strict. It's true that shopping and discipline don't really go all that well together but when it comes to the winter sales, you will absolutely have to draw a line. Don't go crazy and spend more than your budget. It sounds obvious but it can be easy to get carried away in the excitement of the sales.
Most of all, though, the thing you have to remember is that this is meant to be fun. Be patient, be savvy, don't let anxiety get the best of you. If you don't get what you want straight away, don't worry! The January sales will last all month, so retailers are likely to get your items back in stock soon enough. This is your chance to scratch most of the items out of your wishlist and to do so without breaking the bank because there are endless ways to save money with our Winter deals! Take advantage of the January Sales and make your budget go further with our discount codes on our Winter Sale special page.
