Remember when the January sales started in January?!


I remember that not too long ago (well, in my lifetime at least) the January sales started on January 1st. We’d all have a proper week off over Christmas and the only thing you’d need to drag yourself out of the house for was a pint of milk and loaf of bread. Then at 6am on January 1st the hardened bargain-hunters would queue up on the high street and hit the sales for the best deals. Then people like me would rock up mid-January for the last-reductions and scoop the  £1 tops and 50p socks.

But nowadays, the sales begin on boxing day! While I’m sitting at home with a leftover potatoes-n-sprouts-bubble-n-squeak breakfast there are shoppers queuing outside Next to get the bargains. And mostly I feel sorry for the staff in these high street stores – they work until 8pm on Christmas Eve and are back in work at 6am on Boxing Day – no holiday fun for those workers.

But all is not lost for festive-loungers like myself – I can now grab myself a bargain without leaving the house – yes, the Boxing Day sales have come to me via the internet! Everything that I can get in store is also reduced online and some even start on Christmas Eve! Excellent news – just a couple of clicks and I can buy bargains such as these amazing deals (above) that I snapped up from New Look boutique brand Apricot at 75% off. Plus, I’ve found out that they are doing free delivery over £50 – bonus! Check out these bargains and more at and get your sales shopping done without leaving the house at apricot = quick before all the deals are gone!
