Is it just us or is Black Friday more extra than ever this year?! It literally feels like we’ve been bombarded with deals/discounts for weeks already, but we’ve actually still got two whole days to go until the big day!
With us being the thrifty fashionistas that we are, we’re all about saving £’s for our Prosecco but with so many offers to choose from it’s hard to know how best to spend that cash.
As always, we’ve got your back! Our handy little guide will help you get the most out of Black Friday whilst still having enough cash left over for the all-important party season.
Here’s how to nail Black Friday like a true shopping pro…
Know what you want
Being organised is super important when it comes to Black Friday. Things can sell out FAST, meaning that you’ll need to be quick if you want to get the goodies you’re after!
Start by writing a list of what you want in order of priority and where you plan to buy from. Have a gander online and see if you can find out the times that each brand will be launching so that you’re ready to go when they are. Of course, many have gone early this year but will potentially go even bigger on the day and across the weekend!
If you’re seriously going in on Black Friday, have multiple platforms at the ready – mobile, tablet, desktop, whatever rocks your boat – and don’t forget that a good Wi-Fi connection is essential!
Sign up to those newsletters
If you’re signed up to our newsletter already you’ll know that it’s the best way to hear about any of our offers and promotions before anyone else. BTW if you’ve haven’t signed up, you can do so here: www.janenorman.co.uk/newsletter-sign-up
Make sure that you’re on the list for all of the brands that you’re into and give them a cheeky little like/follow on social too. That way you’ll be ahead of the queue when it comes to hearing about their Black Friday deals!
Stick to that budget
Without sounding like Martin Lewis the money man, it’s SO important to budget when it comes to Black Friday! The temptation to spend a whole month’s wage in three hours is strong; especially when there are incredible deals everywhere you look.
Decide beforehand exactly how much you want to spend and STICK TO IT! Even being surrounded by packages full of pretty things will not make up for being stuck in the house when everyone else is out partying over Xmas…
Who are you shopping for?
Who hasn’t been Christmas shopping and thought to themselves: ‘You know who would love that? ME!’ (Sorry, not sorry!)
Decide who you’re shopping for – are you sorting the family out with prezzies or is it all about you?! Either way, it’s good to tackle Black Friday with a plan. Of course, you can spend on both but just remember not to get too carried away and most importantly – keep a cool head!
You’re a survivor!
Once you’re all shopped out and have got those bargains in the bag, it’s time to celebrate! Whether you’ve managed to get all of those Xmas prezzies nailed or just treated yourself sorting everyone else out, you deserve a pat on the back – Black Friday is stressful as hell!
If you’re going out in the night and need an outfit we’ve already got 25% off EVERYTHING up until Cyber Monday (27th November) as well as some banging bargains on a selection of our fave A/W styles.
Happy Black Friday shopping gals! xx
