Are You Hanging For Black Friday?

There was a time when the shops didn't open on Boxing Day.  I remember it.  On Christmas Eve my mum would head to the local shop to stock up on milk and bread.  And then came the Boxing Day sales.  Suddenly it was the biggest shopping day of the year. 

But over the last few years Boxing Day has been losing it's grip on the best day for sales.  With the American pre-Christmas Black Friday becoming standard fare all over the globe, the best sales are now found before Christmas.   

If your email inbox is like mine, you'll already be receiving Black Friday mail.  Retailers telling you to be prepared for their deepest discounts, or most rewarding offers of the year.  All vying for your attention...and money.   I've also noticed this year, retailers trying to get ahead of the curve, by sneaking in with their own Black Fridays, a week or two before the 'official' sales day.  

I've been quizzing my friends and fam-bam today, and my circle has a healthy mix of differing Black Friday opinions.

  • Those hoping to grab a deal on a big purchase, like a new sofa.
  • Those looking to grab some Christmas present bargains
  • Those who are actively not spending now, to ensure they have a healthy bank balance to splurge
  • Those who just don't care about Black Friday.

Do you find yourself planning to shop in the Black Friday sales?  Have you been on a no spend or savings kick in preperation?  Do you brave the in-store experience, or stick to shopping online?  What convinces you what you're buying is actually a bargain and not a ploy to get rid of dead-stock?  Or, do you just flat out refuse to partake in the blatant consumerism of the day?

SO many questions - get chatting below!

I did an online Sephora order (can't help myself) and looked at other deals but nothing interested me

I just completely ignore it, I'm not in the financial position to buy anything I want, rather than need, and I usually find the sales are over-hyped, and theres sales just as good throughout the year.

I definitely have a list of christmas gifts that I wait on black friday for just in case there's a deal for them. Clothes for the kids, sports gear, etc.

I will keep a look out as mainly need some new summer clothing so will see if anything pops up.

I don't usually see any sales that are any better than other sales throughout the year. It's definitely not comparable to the American Black Friday sales where it's like 70-80% off.

Love the deals (if they’re legit) and use it as an opportunity to get Christmas presents, but it’s usually only small items.

Did all my Christmas shopping early. Kind of wish I waited until these black Friday sales. Uh well, maybe next year.
