The New Year’s Resolution We Want To Keep: ‘I’m Going To Budget This Year’

The New Year’s resolution we want to keep: ‘I’m going to budget this year’


Say it with me: “It is impossible to keep that piggy bank stuffed without your wardrobe looking skimpy.” (Uncross those fingers behind your back right now because we’ve got a plan – featuring a brand new sales website).

Specialising in the promotion of live sales for hundreds of UK fashion and clothing retailers is a life-saver called who will make your budget resolution a promise you can keep.

The best part about the New Year is that our favourite brands are launching new lines for 2015. Still recovering from all of those Christmas gifts, we need a fast way to find all of the best deals. Right? That’s where ThatSaleSite comes in.

We recently caught up with the ThatSaleSite trio in London to quiz them about what sparked the idea behind the business.

“One of the co-founders Tomi Oladigbolu was looking for a pair of black jeans online, but was annoyed at having to jump from website to website to browse the sales.” ThatSaleSite co-founder Corby Kuffour told us. “After spending time searching for a solution and being underwhelmed by what was already out there, ThatSaleSite was born.”

This January, we’ve done the research for you using ThatSaleSite, nothing the site’s unique countdown clock for each live site and prioritising those offers soon-to-be-over. So, what are you waiting for? Hurry and read on for great deals! You’re welcome.


Those tootsies can stay warm and still look hot-to-trot. Try on these fantastic Trailblazer Boots from Dirty Laundry for a more casual look. Its lug sole on fleece-cuffed boots will keep you from slipping (and majorly embarrassing yourself – or worse – having to add a case and crutches to your work wardrobe) at £48.88 And the faux leather won’t get ruined in the salt and snow. That’s so important! 

In more of a booties mood – which is always complementary to your office-to-happy hour dress, try these Elle Double Buckle Ankle Boots Black Snake Print from Miss Guided.


A scarf is one of the most versatile pieces in your winter wardrobe that can dress an outfit up, down or transform it all around. Wouldn’t you agree? And, I found a ton of them on ThatSaleSite.

This way, you can get away with wearing your go-to office pieces without it being recognisable. Try this gorgeous, whimsical Speckle Print Scarf from Topshop.

For a cute commute that feels like you never left the comfort of your bed, this checked scarf by Zara is a great find. Originally only £19.99, it’s now £7.99.


Oversized outerwear can be chic and shiver-proof if you know where to look. ASOS has a great selection of styles for every shape, including my favourite Funnel Neck in Hairy Wool, starting at£37.00 down from £97.00, depending on which colour you select.

It’s soft, super fluffy, fully lined with a high funnel neckline that adds a sleek finishing touch.

Another coat from ASOS that is worth considering is this roaring Animal Print, relaxed fit, look. Not only will it be a great statement / conversational piece, it will only cost you £48.00, down from £80.00.


For a funky piece with a splash of cool colour, snag this purple UNIQLO Pompon Beanie for only £4.90, down from £9.90. Sure, there are more basic colours to choose from, but it you’re going to stand out with a fluff ball on your head, go big with a bright colour.

If a more neutral hat is more your style – especially if you’re looking for something that will go with everything, this COS Melange Knit Hat is perfect for you at £13, down from £25.

Warning: with these toasty and totally stylish pieces, you may experience people – colleagues, friends, family, partners and strangers alike – invading your personal space. Because you’re so hot, of course. Again, from ThatSaleSite and I, you’re welcome. 

Sidenote: ThatSaleSite has just launched a Facebook competition offering one lucky winner the chance to win £50 of ASOS vouchers. Click here to enter!
