The most awaited day of the month is coming near (and nope, we're not talking about Christmas). It's almost the 12.12 sales and we're sure your carts are already brimming with items just waiting to be checked out.
While it's easy to get swayed with discounted price tags and markdowns, you might end up losing more money if you just mindlessly check out items you won't really be using any time soon. To help you decide which items to keep in your carts, here's a rundown on sulit purchases to make this 12.12:
Let's face it, gadgets and other tech-related things can get a bit pricey, which is why the sales are a good opportunity to finally snag them at a slightly lower price. Take advantage of the discounts on tech you've been eyeing for so long, but are too reluctant to buy because they're out of budget. Be wary of where you buy from, though. It's best to purchase from the official flagship stores to make sure you're paying for an authentic item.

Even though we're physically distancing during the holidays, sending gifts is still an option you can try to lighten up the mood. The 12.12 sale could be a great opportunity for you to buy thoughtful but budget-friendly gifts for your family, friends, and even yourself. You can even put together a care package from your puchases to add a more personal touch to your gifts.

Some might completely forego skincare because we're all at home anyway, but for those who want to focus on taking better care of your skin, look out for tipid sets or bundles during the sale to make the most out of the purchase.

When buying makeup, it's best to only buy those that you can use at the moment (Do note that beauty products have expiration dates, too!). If you need to head out and wear a mask and a face shield, maybe a lipstick isn't the best purchase right now. Why not opt for an eyebrow product instead? If you're attending online classes and need to turn the camera on, a simple lip tint might be a useful buy from the sale.
