PSA: Afterpay is about to throw us some major discount game so get ready to splurge, folks

Ready, set, take our wallets.

By Jess Pullar
In a world where our couches have never been more loved, our screens never been more watched, and our phones never been more scrolled, we're virtually under a constant commentary from the online world.
Of course, our ease and access to various forms of content means we can be very thrifty when it comes to online shopping.
Gone are the days where one had to actually get up and go to a shopping centre to find the perfect outfit, accessory or household addition.
And with online shopping has also come Afterpay, an additional little mechanism which acts essentially as a virtual laybuy.
The main difference being you can actually get your product straight away without paying for it in one big chunk.
It's an option that can, admittedly, be a little bit dangerous - and we definitely recommend proceeding with caution.
Looking at something for a fraction of the price is always going to be better than actually processing how much it'll cost down the track.
That said, if you've the means to go forward and justify a purchase that you can manageably pay back over time, we're all for it.
And what better way to make the splurge you've been thinking about than to do so when it's already discounted?
On Thursday, August 20 from 8am, you'd best get your shopping pants on and buckle up - the Afterpay Day Sales will kick off with a two-day shopping extravaganza.
There'll be up to 70 per cent off selected items from retailers across the country - and to prepare you in the best way we know how, we've rounded up some of the best sales, with some of our favourite picks that'll be on offer.
Happy shopping!
