This period not only brings opportunities for those with low budgets to bring home what they want or need but also encourages economic growth, where the excitement of stocking up on cheap goods drives us. However, in recent years, everyone has realized that such widespread discount events have brought certain environmental harms and wastefulness.

Below are some tips to help you shop during the sale season in a sensible and sustainable way without feeling overwhelmed:

  1. Buy what you really need It may sound cliché, but we cannot stress it enough: the secret to shopping during the sale season or end-of-year festivals consciously is to only buy what we truly need. Try asking questions like: Is the hairdryer broken? Does our favorite pair of jeans no longer fit? Have we run out of our favorite lipstick? Do we need facial moisturizer for winter? If the answer is “it’s really time to replace it,” then let’s buy it by taking advantage of these discount periods.
  2. Check your wardrobe Before we step up to the checkout counter with a bunch of new clothes or click “checkout” online, take a good look at your wardrobe. A little tidying up ensures that hangers and drawers are neatly organized and helps you know what you have, what needs replacing, and what clothing or accessories are still available. Just one look will tell you whether you should avoid buying another pair of heels that you’ll never wear or if adding a nice fitted pair of pants is enough to refresh your wardrobe.
  3. Focus on your purpose Take a few minutes and write down what you want to buy for yourself or others. Then find the store with the best prices and don’t “accidentally” glance at other tempting offers like alarm bells pulling you to open your wallet. Don’t wander off to another place for a few seconds of “carelessness” and end up bringing home some useless items that you don’t really need.
  4. Pay attention to the tags Whether during discount periods or not, you should always read the labels, product descriptions, and check the composition and origin of clothing. If possible, always prioritize high-quality materials like wool, cotton, and other durable materials, as well as ethically and sustainably produced clothing and items. Vintage or secondhand items are always a good idea too.
  5. Prioritize resale platforms and new brands End-of-year sales volume is no longer limited to affordable stores or famous brands, so why not focus on new emerging brands or domestic products? Not only can you own unique and special items, but you can also support their talent, which will surely make you feel satisfied and contribute to the community of potential brands.
  6. Don’t pay too much attention to the “winged” invitations Your email is probably flooded with discount notifications these days, arousing curiosity to click on links and browse through many offered products, satisfying your desire to hold them in your hands with the thought: “I got the deal of the century.” But no one forces you to do that. It’s true that our wallets are getting emptier and prices in general are getting higher, as well as the increasing demand for consumption and the pursuit of the latest trends. Discount events may be a way to save money, but if you buy anything just because of the fear of missing out or because a celebrity wore them even though you know you’ll never wear them yourself, then you probably won’t get any good deals.
