Our best tips to help you save and purchase with purpose
It’s so easy to get swept up in the hype around sale time – the emails, the posts in your social media feed, the text messages – so we understand how tempting the promise of a bargain can be. Sales can also support local businesses and act as a useful money-saving tool what allows you to enjoy what you need a lesser price point.
But our purchasing behaviour has a huge impact on our environment, and frenzied sale purchases are a common culprit. Here are our best tips for consciously navigating the sale period, so that every purchase is a win for both your wallet and the planet.
Consider your purchases carefully
Of course, you can shop and enjoy the savings on Black Friday, Cyber Monday or any other sales weekend. But it’s important to carefully consider what you buy to minimise waste (for both the Earth and your bank account!).
Shop the sales mindfully by creating a plan for what you’d like to buy ahead of time. Set a budget and stick to it and where you can, choose to support local suppliers or businesses that are working to better the planet.
For WelleCo, we’ve always made sustainable choices as part of our ongoing conscious commitments, and we’re excited to reveal even more eco-friendly changes in the future – stay tuned!
Buy what you know you’ll use
We’ve all fallen victim to the sales trap, where you see something discounted and hastily add it to cart, even though deep down you know it’s probably not something you’ll actually use. While snatching something up at a reduced price might provide a temporary dopamine hit, you’re also more likely to experience buyer’s remorse when it inevitably ends up unopened, unworn or unused.
Instead, be certain that every purchase you make during the sales weekend is something you already know and love. Maybe it’s buying something you’ve tried and loved before, or perhaps it’s using the sales period to replenish items that are already an integral part of your everyday life.
Our complete WelleCo collection is designed to amplify your beauty-through-wellness through a daily commitment to your health. So this Black Friday sale weekend, why not stock up to ensure that your Welle routine is never interrupted?
We also offer handy 3-month packs of The Super Elixir™, which streamlines your delivery and helps to reduce the impact on the environment. You can also subscribe, thrive and save, which means you’ll pay less on your first order, and every ongoing order after that.
Invest in quality
If you are wanting to buy something new, why not make it something special that you’ll enjoy for years to come? If you’ve had your eye on something for a while, buying it on sale can be a great way to save money, while still ensuring that you’re purchasing with purpose.
Rather than buying more, choose to invest in less at a higher quality. That way you’ll be consuming less, which means less waste, but getting more for your money with premium products that you’ll love and appreciate for longer.
