If you can still find them, now is time to score that fabulous pair of designer shoes you’ve been eyeing but didn’t want to buy at full price. If you can find something you can wear year round, bonus! It’s also a good time to buy special clothes you think will still be in style next year. If you’re lucky you can score some great finds.
Seems like my kids are growing like weeds. I’m constantly buying them new clothes to replace the almost-new ones they’ve just outgrown. It’s tough keeping up. If you’re good at estimating how much they grow within a year, end of season sale time is a great time to stock up for next summer.
Keep an eye out for non-seasonal items too. At sale time, I often stumble upon household or gift items at great prices too.
Some of my recent finds:
• Linen shorts and t-shirts (Club Monaco)
• Guest book and board games (Essence du Papier)
• Board games and coffee mugs (Starbucks)
• Greeting cards (Essence du Papier)
Remember, things are only a bargain if you actually need them. I used to have a bad habit of buying things just because they were marked way down. Problem was, I forgot I had them.
Do you stock up at sale time? If so, what do you buy? Have you ever stocked up then forgot you had something?
