The festive season is usually a combination of trying to relax and get into the holiday spirit while also juggling all the obligations that come with all the family meetings. For better or worse, the holiday season is now over, and we’ve got a new year to look forward to.
For the serial shoppers among us, January provides a fantastic opportunity to make use of some of the immense sales some retailers have during the month. While November and December are generally terrible times to shop — simply because prices are jacked up in preparation for all the frantic Christmas shopping.
The exact opposite is true for January, as retailers try to get excess stock from the previous year off their shelves and they slash prices to move that stock. Now, we’re not exactly recommending buying 2021’s Christmas gifts now (although you can if you’d like), but if there’s anything on the list you sent to Santa that you didn’t get, January is the perfect time to browse for whether or not something you want is available for a massive discount.
From tech products to gaming, there’s a whole lot to capitalise on, not to mention a lot of big fashion sales, whereby the northern hemisphere retailers are slashing prices on their winter items — the perfect time for us South Africans to pick up some great winter jackets or clothing ahead of our colder months.
