Boxing Day is one of the best days of the year to save money! However, if you are not well prepared, your shopping spree can quickly become chaotic. To save as much as possible and come out of this day in one piece, follow these simple tips.
Start shopping now
If you can, you should start shopping now. It’s now easy to do it online on your favorite stores’ websites. This will allow you to know the regular prices and get a better idea if the discounts offered during Boxing Day are worth it or not.
If you plan to shop for clothes, you might even want to drop by the store ahead of time to try on the pieces you want. On Boxing Day, you will save time by being able to buy the right size directly without going through the fitting room first (and the long line that sometimes accompanies it!).
Don’t be fooled by discounts that sound too good to be true. Do your research and buy only what you really need. Boxing Day is an opportunity to get your hands on these items that are rarely on sale so be smart and take advantage of it!
Avoid the rush of the mall the day after Christmas and shop from the comfort of your home! Most stores now offer to shop online with the same promotions as in store. Also, be sure to look at the company’s social media before making your purchase, as they sometimes share additional discounts or promotional codes to use.
Before making a purchase, check if the item is on final sale or if you can exchange or return it later. On Boxing Day, it’s not uncommon to see final sales, so be careful. If exchanges or returns are allowed, be sure to keep all of your receipts in one place so you can find them easily.
The best tips to face Boxing Day at the shopping mall
If you choose to go shopping at the mall for Boxing Day, here are our top tips to make your day as smooth as possible.
Nothing is more unpleasant than being too warm in your heavy winter coat while shopping. If you can, leave your coat in the car. Dress with clothes that can be easily removed and put back on if you plan to shop for clothing. And think of comfortable shoes!
Meet all your needs before
There is no question of being hungry, thirsty or wanting to go to the bathroom in the fitting room or when you’re in line to pay at checkout. Make sure all your primary needs are met and get started! Take snacks and a bottle of water with you to keep you feeling good all day.
Choose well who accompanies you
If you are not shopping alone, make sure you are well accompanied. Whether it’s a spouse or a friend, make sure you’re on the same page. You certainly don’t want to hurry because darling wants to go home. If possible, don’t bring the kids. They are likely to get bored anyway and the experience will be less enjoyable for everyone.
Finally, remember that Boxing Day sales are often extended for several days. If you want to relax on December 26, you will not miss everything! We really hope all of these tips help you get through Boxing Day with great savings + a smile!
