#MondayMotivation: the best time to do all your winter shopping is in fact now


I’m not sure if we’re over the worst parts of winter just yet, but what I am sure of is that the days are slowly getting longer and the temperatures are gradually increasing. It does though appear that some parts of the country have jumped right into spring already judging by this past weekend’s temperatures. 

Still having any doubts about winter ending anytime soon? Perhaps a few end of season sales will convince you that spring is not too far off.

If you’ve spent some time in stores this past week or are subscribed to any fashion newsletters, you’ll know by now that the middle to the end of July is the most ideal time to score on all the winter fashion that you may have wanted but couldn’t really afford at the beginning of the season.

We all know how pricey quality winter clothing can be and that’s why it’s best to save the bulk of your shopping pennies for the very last days of the winter fashion calendar. It’s usually at this time that the boots you’ve always wanted as well as the worthy knits and coats that have outlasted the rest are marked down sometimes more than 75% of their original price.

So, if you know your budget was a little stretched this winter, perhaps you can use this next pay day as an opportunity to cash in on some deals for next year's winter looks.
