Money Tips To Help You During Sales Season
You did it! You survived the Holidays! And to celebrate, all your favorite stores are having New Years sales!
But if you are among the 24% of people who overspent and blew their budgets during the Holidays, you may not have the funds to take advantage of all of the deals happening right now.
It seems cruel, doesn’t it? You spent a little too much making your loved ones happy over the Holidays, and now January comes around, everything is on sale but your bank account says you can’t participate?!
Fear not! I have a few tips on how you can give your budget a boost this time of year, so you can still score in the January sales!
New Year New You. What’s On Sale?
Pretty much everything! My favorite cruelty-free natural beauty stores Detox Market USA and Detox Market Canada are having a New Year New You sale:
As well, over 300 items have been marked on sale at Sephora
Everything is 30% off at Beautycounter (use promocode WINTERSALE)

Even FabFitFun is having a New Year New You sale, with huge discounts on individual items in their capsule shop!
These sales are ending this week, so to make sure you don’t miss out, here are a few ways you can secure some extra cash right now!
Sell Your Stuff
Decluttr – This company will pay you for your CDs, DVDs, book, games & any other tech that you want to get rid of. You simply provide the barcode info, they give you a quote, you send it to them (all for free) and they pay you the next day.
Open a Shopify store Shopify is the best place to sell your items / run an online shop. You can try a 14-day free trial – and see my how-to-guide for Shopify, here.
Instagram – Instagram doesn’t have a built-in store, but people are still selling lots on the platform, simply by posting a photo and using hashtags such as #instashop #instasale #shopmycloset to attract buyers. Collect payment through Paypal between you and the buyer.If you have a good number of followers you can also make money on Instagram by having brands pay you to do sponsored posts. To do this, join an influencer agency such as Izea or Linqia.
Do Some Sidehustle Work
You’ve just had a week or so off to relax and enjoy yourself, so you’re probably feeling renewed and ready to work.
To make some extra money for the sales, using this energy to do some side work could be a great way to cover the costs of some treats. Websites like Freelancer make it easy to add some extra income while working from home on your own terms.
Start A Blog
Blogging is super profitable. My blog is my fulltime job, it allows me to stay at home with my family, and earns 5 figures every month! To learn how to start and monetize your own blog, check out my free training and blog start guides at HerPaperRoute.
Borrow A Little
Even if you’ve never borrowed before, a credit card for no credit customers is a great way to bridge the gap between now and payday. Of course, this is something which should be done in moderation. Only ever borrow money which you’re prepared to pay back as soon as you can.
