How to: Get the best deals

Claw back the cash with these need-to-know tricks to squash over-spending and start saving

Master the sample sale

If you’ve never been to a sample sale before, you’re seriously missing out – think last season’s specials at slashed prices. To put it into context, our Editorial Assistant nabbed three pairs of jeans for £15 each at a House of Holland sample sale – jeans that can fetch up to £195 each. Note that products aren’t always quite so heavily discounted, but you’re bound to find a bargain if you browse a little. London often has the best selection of sample sales and they only pop up once every so often, so bookmark sites like stylebarista.com and samplesaleguide.co.uk. Good luck!

About Homestyle

Transforming your home on a budget? You’ve come to the right place. Begin your bargain hunt with a stop-off on page 6, where you’ll find the best décor buys the high street has to offer – starting from just £2. Next, get your fix of design inspiration with our four fabulous real homes; Rebecca Hadley’s stairs (p.16) and Janice Issit’s bathtub (p. 46) are feats of creative magic. Steph and Abbi on the HomeStyle team have completely demystified the dark arts of DIY on page 61, from tool box starter kits and tiling masterclasses to solving your worst decorating disasters. For those DIY-ing to add value to your home, flip to page 80, where we’ve brought a whole new meaning to packing on the pounds – you’ll be totally amazed by how easily (and cheaply) you can send your asking price through the roof. Elsewhere, cook up a storm with frozen produce (p. 72), read our ultimate guide to wooden flooring (p. 96) and explore the many different ways you can upcycle and embellish junk shop finds with Juliet and Amanda on page 83. And lastly, our super stylist Pippa is back with three fun room ideas with print and pattern (p. 90) to give our schemes a whole new spin. Enjoy.
