It’s that time of year again; the post-Christmas sales are almost upon us!
The winter sales can be a great time to make big purchases for your bathroom. However, with so many sales on offer, it can be difficult to find the best deals. It can also be easy to get swept up in the excitement of sale season and end up spending more than you really wanted or needed to.
But never fear; we’re here to talk you through our tips for shopping effectively at Wholesale Domestic Bathroom Superstore this sale season, where we bring bathrooms to life.
1. Sign up to receive our emails
The first step of shopping the winter sale: find out when the sale starts. With most post-Christmas sales now starting well before the 25th, it can be hard to know when the sale period is actually going to start.
Luckily, you can sign up to our email newsletter to be the first to know about any sales and special offers! Sign up on our homepage!
2. Make a list (and check it twice)
The most useful thing you can do when it comes to shopping the sale is plan ahead. Write down a list of everything you need and would like to buy, whether you’re looking for a full new bathroom, or just a few accessories.
After you’ve got your list, start browsing our site to get an idea of what stock there is and what items you like.
If you prefer to browse in person, have a look around our showroom with a notepad and pen and note down the names, codes and prices of everything you’re interested in. Alternatively, one of our friendly team can walk you around and talk you through all the options available to you.
3. Set a budget
With so many offers and bargains to be had, it can be easy to get swept up in the excitement of the sales.
Set yourself a budget for your shopping and make sure you stick to it as closely as you can. If you’re shopping online, keep an eye on that basket total as you shop so you don’t end up going overboard.
If shopping in person, keep a notepad, pen and small calculator handy (or use your phone) when browsing the showroom. When you spot things you want, note down the prices and keep a running total to make sure you stay under budget. Again, our team can also do this for you.
4. Don’t impulse buy
Impulse buying is the enemy of effective sale shopping. Take your time when shopping to ensure you’re making smart purchases. That list you made before? Stick to it like glue! Hastily-made decisions and impulse purchases can result in you wasting money or buying a bathroom that you don’t actually like.
If you’re not 100% sure about something, take a day or so to mull it over before handing over the credit card. If you’ve been tempted by something that wasn’t originally on your list, consider whether it’s actually a good purchase for your bathroom.
However, don’t wait too long to go back and buy the things you want. Sale items can go out of stock fairly quickly, so don’t miss out!
5. Stick with a trusted provider
Sale season is not the time to experiment with companies you’ve never heard of.
Stick to shopping with a trust-worthy, established company, like Wholesale Domestic, for all your bathroom sale shopping.
And that was our 5 Commandments of Shopping our sale. We hope you picked up some good tips. Merry Christmas to all, and happy shopping!
