As it is coming to the end of the summer, the stock in the shops is changing to welcome the cooler weather. Do you know what this means? It’s sales time! But, before you go mad with your credit card, you need a plan of attack. What should you buy to make the most out of the end of summer sales? Here are some great ideas to help you out.
We know the last thing on your mind is adding more garden stuff when you want to pack stuff away but this a great time to get garden furniture at a discounted price. As you are clearing and packing stuff away, it is a good idea to have a look and see what can be stored and what needs to be dumped. Whatever you need to dump, have a check through the sales and see if you can grab some replacement items at a bargain price. These items can be anything! You might even find big barbecues on sale with a huge discount so that they can get them out of the storeroom to make room for more stock.
Our kids never stop growing so it is always a good idea to stock up on clothes during the sales. The trick is to work out what sizes they will be next year or the year after.

During the sales, they tend to put out the toys that are lying around in the storeroom with a big discount so keep your eyes peeled for some one-off items that you don’t see often. You might even spot some items that you liked the look of a few years ago but missed out on
