But before you join in the chaos, here are a few tips so you can score the best deals, have minimum waiting time, and tick everything off your shopping list.

4. Download Store Apps

Some stores’ apps have a feature that lets you check product and size availability across all branches. This saves you the trouble from visiting a branch only to find out the item you wanted has been taken.

3. If it’s love at first sight, seize the opportunity

Find something you like? Don’t think twice! Chances are you will never see it again. EVER. Now, if the item is the last stock in your size, that’s just destiny.

2. Stock up on basics

Prioritize versatile garments you can use and abuse for the rest of year to get your money’s worth.

 

1. Reward yourself

Been eyeing that thousand-something bag from last season? It’s already on sale, no more buts! Investing in quality pieces during sale season will be a real steal.
