Tips for sale shopping:
1. Early birds catch the worm. For a guaranteed parking spot and the best of bargains visit the store during the first few hours of its opening.
2. Wear comfortable slip on shoes — it makes changing in the dressing room faster and easier.
3. If you have been looking for an item for months and have finally found something “close enough”, BUY IT!
4. Size Yourself Up. Figure out beforehand what size you wear in that brand; it’ll allow you to grab more and try later.
5. Evaluate what you need to buy. Staple pieces and classics will never go out of style.
