Toy Sale Tips

Posted in 'Tips' on June 13, 2012
Yes I know it just seems like yesterday that we were Christmas shopping, but it's that time of year - Toy Sales time!

Here are my Top 5 tips to help keep you sane and get the most out of the Toy Sales

1. Be prepared - don't just go in and grab what looks good. You'll end up taking half of it back because it's not appropriate.

2. Spend some time going through the catalogues and comparing prices, quality etc. If you are buying 90% of your things in one place but there are one or two things on sale somewhere else, you need to ask yourself if the $5 saving is worth the extra trip and line up at the registers. 

3. Make a list - If you are buying gifts, make a list of who you need to buy for and then write what you are planning on getting them (include the name of the store, brand, size and price)

4. If you can, get in early. It is surprising how much stock runs out on the first day.

5. If you can't get there, or don't want to fight the crowds, contact us about our Toy Sale Shopping Service. We can take your list and fight the crowds for you. There are limited spots available for this service.

I cannot overstate the value of having you as my Lifestyle Manager. When I moved overseas with less than one week notice, I never thought I would find someone I could trust to manage my tax, investment properties, and mail and be the first point of contact for any business back in Australia to the same level I would. Your professionalism, good judgement and very efficient approach have saved me time, money and sanity. I am grateful for your hard work and I would be pleased to recommend your services to anyone in the future.
