I have a confession to make, shopping is not really my thing. Most of the clothes I own, I bought because I came across them by accident, on a Monday at 17.55h coming back from a meeting. Sales are probably the worst time of the year for me. The shops are crowded and messy. All the stock is hanging out in the shop and it takes way too long to find the items you like in your size. There is so much on the hangers and the shop floor, even in the fanciest stores it often looks like a war zone. Later on, when sales are a couple of weeks in, sale shopping becomes too risky. I am very chaotic myself, but in shops I get chills from disorder. So I am automatically attracted to the nicely arranged and cleaned up area of the shop – the new collection. Coming home with bags full of new collection when you went sale shopping feels like a missed opportunity. So I avoid sales. Until the very last days, then they become interesting. That is – for me – shopping at its best. Okay, there is the occasional trap to fall in love with an item of the new collection. But it is much easier to focus on the sales part of the shop floor, since there is very little left. In most shops they even put the items by size, instead of by item. That makes browsing through the left-overs so much easier. Moreover the discount is worth it. There is very little chance that it will be marked down even more. You can really do a great buy without choosing between more discount a few days later and the risk somebody else will buy it.
But the most important reason why I am addicted to this last sale day, is faith. There is nothing like the feeling that there is a dress you like, in your size, left at the very end of the sales. Whether it is a dress, skirt, trousers, shoes, sweater or T-shirt, I call it destiny. It makes the doubting – to buy or not to buy – so much easier. Don’t spoil it by going for a peak at the beginning of sales, it’ll only disappoint you. Have a little faith and a meeting with destiny!
