It’s that time of the year and Christmas is right around the corner. I am sure I am not the only parent who does their winter shopping around Christmas time and uses it as a means of Christmas presents. If you don’t do that then you should consider the idea, especially if you have daughters, as everybody knows girls are more into clothes and fashion than boys. Christmas time is also a great time to stock up on those closes out sales for all the fall merchandise for the whole family. You just have to consider the growth spurt that is going to happen during the summer.
What that means is you buy big so the clothes are a nice fit when it comes time for the next fall. This can also be done after winter as it relates to your winter clothes for the following year. When you shop in this manner you save hundreds of pounds. Now if you are worried about buying things that will no longer be the trend the following year, then consider doing this.
Buy the basics like shirts, pants, boots, sweaters, hats, trainers, jeans, casual trousers etc. These are things that are always a fashion trend. If your kids are older than 3, then you might want to consider their opinions when shopping for clothes, so you don’t risk buying something they don’t like. Besides, shopping can be fun if you do it with the right people, so don’t let anxiety take over and enjoy the experience.
There are also department stores that sell new brand name products for a fraction of the price. This is a great help when you have children that want brad name clothes that are very expensive. If you are one that has to have your designer clothes directly from that store then it is good to catch the store when they are stacking their sales. With the right amount of time and planning you are able to do your Christmas shopping for a fraction of the price you would have to spend if you were shopping on the fly. However, if you can afford to wait until the 26th of December, then I suggest you take advantage of Boxing Day, when all shops offer incredible deals. The only disadvantage would be that people usually wait in line in front of their favourite stores from as early as 4 am (sometimes they even spend the night on the sidewalks), so if you are serious about doing this, do it properly: wake up as early as you can and take advantage of those unbelievable bargains.
