Who doesn’t love the end of the financial year, except maybe your tax agent. You (hopefully) get a little bit of your tax back and there’s sales on everywhere! But before you go overboard on a spending spree, take the discount frenzy as an opportunity to invest in some key, good quality pieces that you actually need.
To help you on your shopping mission, we’ve put together the top 7 items you should be investing in while they’re on special this saving season.
A Warm Coat
Let’s be honest, coats are expensive – a but a good quality coat is one thing seriously worth the extra cash. To keep warm and trendy for seasons to come, go for a classic cut that fits well across the shoulders in either a wool or leather. Not to mention, your backside will be thanking us come that dreaded August cold snap.
A Good Pair of Boots
Are your boots made for walking? If the answer isn’t “Hell yes!” it’s time for an upgrade. Take a look at your current shoe-drobe situation and make a call. If you’re in desperate need of some knee-high’s, now is the time to invest! Otherwise, go for a short, leather ankle boot that will stand the test of time.
A Cashmere Sweater
Every quality winter wardrobe needs a good dose of cashmere luxury. Not only will a cosy sweater keep you warm, if properly cared for – it can last for seasons!

Flat Out Staples
Almost as key as some quality boots, are a sturdy pair of flats. A black pair of loafers, brogues or mules styles in leather, will serve you for years to come. Paired with your favourite pair of jeans, look for ones that will become your fail-safe weekend wardrobe.
Bag a Bargain
Don’t forget about your hardware – invest in a classic, medium-sized handbag that will go with just about everything! While it may be tempting to splash out on an ultra-trendy, neon pink printed designer bag that’s about a million per cent off, we advise getting your classics sorted first. A good quality leather bag is something that can last a life time if well cared for.
A Fabulous Bra
Every woman needs a good support system, but we all know a good bra can set you back. Take advantage of all the end of financial year sales, and treat yourself to a set of designer lingerie. Start by knowing your measurements, each brand can run slightly different, then aim for a quality brand in a supportive style.
Some Luxurious Sheets
Who doesn’t love that feeling of slipping into a freshly made bed? It’s one of life’s little luxuries, but a good quality sheet set can cost upwards of $200. Take advantage of sale time by spoiling your bed to a high thread count, it’s something you can enjoy for years to come!
Bonus: Something just for you
While it’s important to shop smarter not harder this sale time, don’t forget about you! Treat yourself to a special something – they say shopping is cheaper than therapy…
