Singles day, now the world’s biggest online shopping momentum of the year, was once just a simple anti-Valentine’s celebration for singles in China, starting somewhere in the 1990's by a group of students at Nanjing University. It has always taken place on the 11th of November (11/11) because of the one-one-one-one visual representing single people. Lucky for us, this Bachelor’s Day celebration is now a worldwide sales day with multiple stores opting in and offering discounts like you couldn’t believe it. With up to 50% off designer clothes, shoe brands and accessories collections, preparing for this huge sale moment is crucial. Not sure how to set up your strategy for the singles day sales? With this little guide you’ll be an expert in no time!

Singles day sales are an awesome opportunity to find great finds at lower, affordable price points without having to deal with other customers in person. Hallelujah for online shopping, am I right? Besides, I love these kinds of sale momentum as shops tend to put out discounts on labels I haven’t heard of before, and so I can shop for less AND discover new brands to love.
Being single isn’t so bad on singles day!
