Buy out of season for a great bargain

Being the ever thrifty mum that I am.  4 years ago we asked out family to club together to but the boys a play house and climbing frame for Christmas.  We got a great deal as we were buying out of season.

So my top tips for buying out of season are as follows:


  1. Plan - buy having a plan of what you need and when you need it, you can take action to look for something out of season.
  2. Sizes.  Make sure you have a list of your children's clothes and shoe sizes with you and a conversion chart.  I also used to carry a list of their previous sizes so I could judge what size to buy.
  3. Do not pack them away without listing what you have purchased and where you have pout it.  No good having to buy it again as you can not find it.
  4. Now is the perfect time to be thinking about stoking up in the January sales for birthday gifts throughout the year and christmas cards for next year.
  5. I always make sure I buy after an event, so I have a drawer with things in for next Easter and Halloween that I purchased for a fraction of the price.  
Do you stock up out of season?
