Black Friday and Cyber Monday are upon us again. While the two events originated in the United States following the Thanksgiving holiday, this sales spectacular has become popular amongst retailers in Australia.
For roughly three days, brands will slash their prices to encourage consumers to shop their wares and with Christmas only weeks away, it’s the perfect time to buy any gifts you might still have on your holiday list.
The obvious consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday leaves a bad taste in many people’s mouths and for good reason. While you probably don’t need many of these things, brands market them in a way that makes it feel like you do. We have curated a few popular brands that are having Black Friday sales and we encourage thoughtful spending when it comes to your purchases.
Think of this as a good time to restock your supplements or finally purchase a new pair of running shorts to replace your old scruffy ones. If you’re running low on any beauty bits, it’s also a great time to save a little cash while refilling your beauty bag. If you are planning to partake in these sales, try to only purchase things you really need or can see yourself using for years to come.
