This week’s super item is – the sales. Now although this may sound like an obviously topic considering all the stores are rife with post Christmas sales, I am not actually a sales kinda girl. I find stores become messy, it’s impossible to find anything and the majority of the time I end up buying something I never wear or use again just because I was tempted and lured in by the money off value. Whenever I attempt sales shopping I walk-in and end up walking straight back out again as the hordes of people and clothing is just too much to handle. That being said, the reason why this week’s ‘Super Saturday’ post is all about the sales is because this year, I have been going sale shopping crazy!
It all started with a trip to Westfields the day after Boxing Day. I wasn’t going for the sales, instead I was picking up a birthday present for my Dad as the big day lies on NYE. Understandably when you are surrounded by shops it’s tempting to go in and take a gander. A gander indeed I took and managed to pick up a jumper from Gap, three bottles of Snow Fairy and a jumper from Whistles with a rather lovely 50% off. You may this this is where my tale ends but oh no, I managed to also get myself wrapped into the COS 50% sale. There is something about expensive items reduced by up to half price that makes it impossible to say no. It’s beats the like of Zara who managed to only offer their shoppers a mere £10 off here and there. Needless to say this year the sales have been my best friend, here is hoping they end soon before my bank card bursts into flames!
