I went with a friend to the Boxing Day Sales and surprisingly and happily had a good time. The crowds were not too bad and I actually did get some bargains. I had been looking at items before Christmas which were heavily reduced and bought them. An experience I will do again.

  • It is great to get what you want and not having too many crowds. We arrived in Adelaide that time and it was so mad with the line-ups and shops didn’t open till 11.00am . If I was back home I would’ve waited another day as they had the same items next day and the stores were so much quieter . Crowds just make me dizzy .


  • That is great for you. I had a relative who went to the Boxing Day sales and it was a madhouse. He bought an item which was exactly the same price as what it was before the Boxing Day sales.


  • If you know what you want, the sales can be great.


  • Nice! I went to Target and I wasn’t very happy. But it was the 28th. Maybe all the good stuff was already gone. Ha! Ha!


  • Good on you,we were with family on Boxing Day so we didn’t go and usually the crowds put me off but it sounds like you had a good experience!


  • i am glad that you were pleased with the sale. i wasn’t really impressed lol.


  • That’s great. I didn’t get to go as I was working


  • I haven’t done the Boxing Day sales before. So glad it worked out for you.


  • Its grreat o be able to pick up a barin, i missed out this year due to y ubby working and didnt want to take three kids aloong with me, Maybe next year… Although ihave managed to pick up a ouple of things online just before christmas which were marked down….

    • It is good to shop kid free and with a friend. Glad you found some online bargains.


  • I am glad you had a good experience. I think that with more retailers selling online this has probably reduced the in store crush a little bit. I haven’t been to boxing day sales in a few years so maybe next year will venture out again.

    • It was well worth it and we even had to time to relax with a cuppa! I saved $$$!
