Heart palpitations? Don't worry, that's normal. It's almost impossible not to get carried away when you're handed such a sweet, sweet deal. Now is the time to go large and go hard. However it is not the time to buy 12 of the same sequin crop top in different colours because "it's just such a bargain".
Let's not lose our heads. We are still logical, rational human beings. There's nothing worse than receiving your online order only to find yourself physically sickened by its contents.
Not to worry. We've got some tricks for avoiding all feelings of regret and making smart choices you'll thank yourself for.

Stick to it. We are all for spending up big but let's be real - we don't all have money coming out of our ears. Be realistic about your budget from the beginning and make your choices based on the amount you have to spend.
2. T R U S T Y O U R I N S T I N C T S
Don't overthink things. Chances are your first instinct is the right one. Stay true to your style and you won't go astray.

The ultimate test. Do you already have this item? Visualise your wardrobe and think about what's missing. Focus on filling the gaps.
4. T H I N K A H E A D
Take a minute to think about any special events you've got coming up. There's no point spending up big on cocktail dresses if your social calandar is bare. Luckily, this time of year we've got Melbourne Cup, Christmas parties, Christmas itself and finally New Year to look forward to - at the very least. Keep this in mind when making your choices.

When in doubt, select high quality, staple styles that will withstand the test of time. That way you'll be able to enjoy your savings for years to come.
Heartbeat slowing? Catch your breath. You can do this.
