These tips were written specifically for the Mini Boden sales, but many of them are useful for other sales also!

1. Get there at least an hour early if you want a great selection. Bring a book, a snack and a water bottle. I arrive much earlier than that since I want to get in in the first wave of people. Your wait will be indoors, and you'll be able to sit down the entire time in the Hynes air conditioned hall, so don't worry about hot or cold weather.

2. Have someone drop you off or take public transport if you can. Or better yet, bring a friend along to split parking costs. The line seems to go faster if you're waiting with a friend! If you do drive DO NOT PARK at the Pru. You will be charged $38 if you come in before 9:30. Instead, park at Dalton Street garage across from the Sheraton, you'll pay $19 max.

3. Bring a HUGE, strong, reusable bag. No, bring two. They sell them at the sale in case you forget yours. The neon green ones are much better than the mesh bags. Don't buy the mesh ones!

4. Bring cash. They often have a much shorter cash-only line.

5. The best thing to wear is leggings and a tight tank top. Then you can try dresses and tops on over your clothing & save yourself a lot of time. And shoes that easily slip on and off - no laces! Wear a light coat or leave your coat in the car, you don't want to have to shlep it

6. Even if you don't come with a friend, people in line will gladly hold your place in line while you go and use the bathroom. FIRST, get your spot in line - THEN, after asking the people around you to hold your place, make a bathroom trip before you are let into the hall. This way you get as far up in the line as possible and you won't have to step out for a bathroom break during the actual sale. You really don't want to leave the sale hall because it's very competitive and you don't want to waste those precious shopping minutes.

7. Grab as much stuff as you can. Grab anything you love, and check the size later. Then try it on and discard later. Ideally try and find someone with sizes/genders similar to yours. If you're both discarding boy clothes, one or both of you may benefit by grabbing items the other doesn't want. Same goes with women's clothing, try to find someone approximately your size so you can share your discards. Sales staff constantly comes around and picks up the discards, sorts them, and puts them back where they belong.

8. Don't be afraid to offer someone next to you at the tables a trade! I got one of my favorite buys, a cute boys winter hat, when I traded it for a t-shirt with the woman shopping next to me.

9. Bring multiple printed copies of your $5 off coupon. They will now only let you use it once, but you can build good will with your fellow shoppers by offering them a coupon. It makes me happy to help other people save money!

10. This one is very important. I have been told by multiple people that there was overcharging going on at one sale. I attribute this to the hectic atmosphere and inexperienced, overwhelmed cashiers, and not to any dishonesty on Boden's partSo, before you leave the hall, check your printed receipt carefully - they will happily refund your money if you find an error BEFORE you leave the hall, but afterward you're out of luck.
