Tips for getting the most out of the January sales
• Browse online first to work out what you’re looking for.
• Think about how much you’d like to spend so you don’t end up going over your budget just because you’ve got a good deal.
• Think before you buy – if you or the person you are buying for end up never wearing it, it’s not a bargain no matter how much money you saved.
