Stop What You’re Doing – Every Store Is On Sale!

Don’t know about you but, my first instinct when seeing the “On Sale” sign is the compulsion to shop till I drop. I have, with much experience in the shopping arena, developed a full proof strategy for shopping sales. Lets be honest, South African retailer sales are not quite as good as those off shore so it’s important to sale shop with a cool head and basically don’t blow your salary on fleeting items.

This weekend, as in today, South Africa embarks on it’s sale season! We have compiled a list of who’s on sale and why you should shop with caution using our 5 step sale shopper guide below.

Store’s On Sale This Month


Up to 50%Available in store only, H&M boasts prices at R60! Woah Kemosabe shop with caution! Be sure to use our guide and not over shop with these unbeatable prices. H&M usually has great basics on sale so you might be in for a steal.

With all those sales it’s hard not to get yourself into a tricky spending cycle. Save these steps on your phone before shopping – wishing you luck!

  1. Do I actually love this item?
  2. Would I buy this if it was not on sale?
  3. How long will I wear this for? Is it versatile enough OR too trendy to wear across seasons?
  4. Have I tried it on, does it fit well?
  5. How much am I really saving? Check the original price compared to the sale price, is the amount you’re saving really a bargain?
