Black Friday can be a real assault on your email inbox. Every brand you've ever bought anything from will be sending you constant updates about offers, and it's easy to fall into the trap of buying something simply because it is a little bit cheaper. As with all sale shopping, it's best to use it as an opportunity to buy classic or investment pieces you already need or have been considering purchasing for months, rather than being tempted by throwaway pieces just because of the slashed price tag.
Many people use Black Friday as a time to give their home some TLC. We've all seen the videos of people fighting over a half-price TV; however, Black Friday is now a huge digital event, with many homeware offers spread out over a fortnight. Black Friday officially started today but the likes of La Redoute and Swoon have been introducing their offers over the past week, meaning you can really think over your purchases and not get caught up in the frenzy.
As someone who is about to move house and needs to buy a lot of kitchen supplies, I have an invested interest in the homeware deals this year and so have my own running list of offers. I've found an amazing Berber-style rug, a beautiful wooden armchair and some linen sheets that will make you want to never get out of bed.
