One of the biggest shopping weeks of the year is approaching and I wanted to share with you some tips how you can shop effectively and focus on things you actually need. Sales can be sometimes very tempting so some people buy stuff just because they are discounted and then do not use those items at all.

So how can you prepare without being overwhelmed and shop effectively?

  1. Create a wish-list – Sit down and write down the items you need/want. Remember want isn’t need. I am sharing some of items I have my eyes on below if you want to have a look. This time of the year is great for shopping designers as you can get really good deals however if you want trendy high-street piece you can also snap things cheaper. However you may need stuff for household, holiday or sofa. It really is up to you but planning is key.
  2. Prioritise this wish-list – Make sure you have good order of the items you want. If things go wild online you do not want to panic and buy one item over the other.
  3. Make a list of Christmas presents – This time is amazing to snap some bargains for Christmas. Why wait and buy presents for loved ones when they are back full price? Do it now.
  4. Think of your favourite retailers and write them down – most brands have offers, if you do not want anything specific but want to browse around to see if there is anything you like…you can go by retailers.
  5. Use Shoptagr app – it gives you an alert if your favourite item goes on sale or if it is back in stock. It is easy way how to track discounts.
  6. Read articles that have lists full of discount codes – Shoptagr is amazing but it will only show you if the price actually changes. Lot of retailers only show discount codes which you apply at check out. Many bloggers, printed and online magazines share tons of discount codes and offers so keep an eye on those.
  7. Buy timeless things that you will have and use for a long time – this is a great time to shop for classic items. If you buy black leather jacket 30 % off you will have this piece for a long time. Trends are amazing but your cost per wear will be even better with classic items.

So hopefully you will do some amazing shopping this year. Definitely bookmark this page as I will be sharing some discounts and offers during Black Friday, I may do the same on my youtube channel so why don’t you subscribe not to miss out.

Jedna z nejvetsich nakupnich udalosti roku se pomalu blizi a tak me napadlo s vama sdilet par tipu jak muzete nakupovat efektivne a soustredit se na veci, ktere opravdu potrebujete. Vyprodeje jsou super, ale obcas clovek nakoupi veci bez rozumu a nakonec zjisti, ze danou vec nepouziva ci nenosi. 

A jak se teda pripravit na nakupy behem cerneho patku? 

  1. Napiste si seznam/wish-list – Udelejte si cas a napiste si seznam veci, ktere potrebujete ci chcete. Hlavne si udelejte poradek v tom, co je jen chtic a co potreba. V tuto dobu se skvele nakupuji drazsi designerske kousky a slevy se vyplati, ale muze to byt klidne kosile z retezce. Zalezi na vasem rozpoctu, vkusu a potrebach. Nekdo chce novou pohovku a druhy nove lyze. Jen je dobre planovat, protoze v teto dobe muze nastat panika a vas vysneny kousek muze byt hned vyporadny.
  2. Napiste si poradi – Az budete mit seznam veci, co chcete, napiste si je do poradi od te co chcete nejvice. Pomuze vam to v rozhodovani na posledni chvili. Protoze kdyz opravdu chcete sedacku, ale pak nahodou uvidite kabelku Chloe o 30 % levnejsi, mozna na sedacku uplne zapomenete. Ujasnete si sve priority.
  3. Napiste si seznam darku k Vanocum – Nekdo nakupuje Vanocni darky na posledni chvili, ale v teto dobe muzete najit opravdu vyhodne ceny. A proc kupovat tu samou vec o par dni pozdeji za vice. Zeptejte se svych blizkych s predstihem a snad ulovite co je potreba za mnohem mene.
  4. Pokud nemate nic co vylozene chcete, ale radi nakupujete, napiste si seznam vasich oblibenych obchodu a behem slev omrknete jejich stranky. Urcite na neco potom narazite a treba si to ve finale rozmyslite.
  5. Stahnete si aplikaci Shoptagr – je to aplikace, kde si muzet ulozit veci, co se vam libi a hned jak jdou do slevy, prijde vam oznameni. Je to jednoduchy zpusob jak nakupovat vyhodneji. To same plati, pokud se vec vyproda a obchod ji znova naskladni, prijde vam opet oznameni. 
  6. Najdete si clanek se slevovymi kody – Vyse zmineny Shoptagr vam ukaze pouze pokud se na strankach opravdu ukaze levnejsi cena, ale spousta obchodu cenu nemeni, pouze nabizi slevovych kod. Blogeri, online magaziny i noviny v tomto tydnu sdili desitky slevovych kodu, tak se urcite podivejte na sve oblibence. 
  7. Jeden z mych tipu je urcite, nakupovat klasicke kousky, ktere nevyjdou z mody. Trendove veci jsou take skvele, ale dobre kozene bundy, kvalitnich botu ci kabelky nebudete litovat. V teto dobe se skvele nakupuji nadcasove veci. 

Tak snad se letos dobre pripravite a nakoupite podle svych predstav. Urcite se podivejte behem cerneho patku na muj blog, protoze kazdy rok sdilim desitky slevovych kodu. A snad vyjde i video na youtube, tak se urcite prihlaste k odberu, at vam nic neunikne.

HOW AND WHAT TO SHOP IN BLACK FRIDAY SALES?

Black Friday is almost here and as every year so many shoppers will want to grab a bargain. I am a huge fan of the biggest sales of the year as it is right before Christmas and I  can get gorgeous super luxury items for much less. This year is even more exciting as I will be looking at home decor items and any appliances that are often in sale.

On the other hand though shoppers can get carry away and perhaps end up having things they do not want or need just because they were on sale. So why not to stick to some shopping rules to avoid those unnecessary purchases?!

Black Friday je pro mnoho lidi velkou nakupni udalosti. Popularite se tesi hlavne v USA a v Britanii, ale myslim, ze tento velky trend se uz dostava i do Evropy a dalsich kontinentu.  Neni na skodu slev v tomto obdobi vyuzit, protoze nas cekaji Vanoce a take si casto muzeme poridit drazsi a luxusni kousky za vic. Napriklad ja letos budu spise pokukovat o vecech do domu a take elektrospotrebicech. 

Bohuzel spousta zakazniku muze byt v tomto obdobi zmatena a nevi kde s nakupy zacit, co si poridit a jak. A to je normalni, protoze v tak velkem mnozstvi nabidek muze clovek ztrati prehled a zacne nakupovat zbytecnosti jen protoze jsou ve sleve. A tak jsem si rikala, ze sepisu par tipu jak na to. 

TOP TIPS

List of items you really want/Napiste si seznam veci co si prejete

It is important to have a list whether that is list of items you want or need for the house or Christmas presents ideas list. It really helps as then you can just go item by item and look for them in the sales. Is it a favourite face cream or pair of shoes? Then check for retailers that may have those offers. I have a permanent wish-list of items here so it is easy for me as I can always go and check items I like.

Je dulezite si napsat seznam, at uz jsou to veci, ktere chcete pro sebe ci nejake Vanocni darky. Je dobre potom jit podle seznamu a podivat se, kteri prodejci maji treba vas oblibeny krem ci vysnene boty ve sleve. Ja mam vlastne svuj permanentni seznam tady a tak je to pro me trosku jednodussi, ale letos si napisu i seznam zvlast s vecma do domacnosti.

Check Offers from last year/Vyhledejte si akce, ktere byly loni

A good place where to start is also to take notes each year which retailers had good offers and what sort of offers. There are lot of articles online and I often use the one I wrote previous year which you can read here. Firstly more likely these retailers will have similar offers or better and secondly this will also help you to prioritise. Some online magazines and newspapers also list tips before Friday.

Nebylo by na skodu si kazdy rok nekde napsat, kteri prodejci akci poradaji. Ja treba vzdy pouzivam svuj stary clanek z predchoziho roku, ktery mi da napady a predstavu na ktere e-shopy se soustredit. Ten si muzete projit tady. Je totiz mozne, ze stejny e-shop bude mit podobnou akci. No a ty si predem projdu a kdyz se mi na jejich strankach neco libi, tak si to dam na svuj wish-list a v patek rychle poridim.

Shop Christmas presents/Nakupte si Vanocni darky

It is one of the easiest ways how you can shop Christmas presents. So be ready. You still have time to ask your children to write a letter of their wishes or asked your loved ones if there is anything specific they are after. You can really get yourself a bargain.

Tento Cyber weekend muzete napriklad koupit Vanocni darky. A tak se na to pripravte, dneska mate do Patku jeste cas a tak napiste s detmi dopis Jeziskovi a nebo se zeptejte svych blizkych, co by si prali. A tak se muzete pri nakupech soustredit prave na tyto veci. 

Have a back up plan/Mejte vzdy pripraveny Plan B

It is always good to have a back plan. So if you want that specific TV, make sure you also have 2nd best and third best option on your list and the same comes to anything else. Black Friday can be manic and you will not have time to start to do the research on other items in the middle of the madness.

Mejte vzdy v zaloze seznam veci, ktere jsou u vas ci vasich blizkych na druhem miste. Napriklad kdyz si chcete poridit televizi a mate svuj vysneny model, ktera televize bude na druhem miste?! Muzete totiz narazit na super akci a bylo by skoda toho nevyuzit. A ja vam garantuju, ze zacit delat pruzkum trhu na posledni chvili nekde v obchode na telefonu se vam asi nevyplati. 

Use early offers/Vyuzijte drivejsich slev a nabidek

If you are really keen to shop in the sales earlier you can do so with lot of retailers. I think the competition is big and each year stores are coming up with clever marketing ways how to get ahead and bring offers already Monday that week. So here are some places you can shop already.

Jestli nechcete cekat az do patku, mate sanci. Kazdy rok konkurence prinasi akce drive a drive a letos uz muzete na spouste e-shopu nakupovat s predstihem. A tady je takovy mensi vyber.
