Save The Date

Boxing Day falls on 26 December, the day after Christmas, so it should be easy to remember. In the lead up to this nationwide public holiday, there are some helpful insights to help you prepare.

Have A Plan

Make a list and check it twice to ensure you know what you’re looking for (impulse purchasers, beware). Run through all of the appliances in your home that need updating, list them in order of priority and plan out roughly how much you’ll be willing to spend to give you a loose budget for the day. If you’ve got a renovation in the works, think about the size and finish you’ll want in the new space.

Think ovens with steam cooking, combination microwaves, heat pump dryers and the brands you love or have always wanted to buy. With top savings to be made, you may choose to reach for the model above what you would usually buy. Keep your eye on your favourite brands for the best deals!

To truly maximise on the major discounts, it’s also important to think ahead. Birthday presents for the kids, back-to-school supplies (like laptops and tablets) and not just cooling, but also heating appliances to get you through winter. Making a commitment to fitness in the new year? Think about the fitness trackers and equipment that will keep you on track.
