Went shopping with my Mum yesterday, popped into wilkos, and they have all of their Christmas stuff stupidly cut price. I got all the men I know, a Gillette set, for £1 each, 12m rolls of paper for 50p, Christmas books for J, and my niece, 10p each, lots of Christmas craft stuff, for 10p each (rubber stamps, blank cards, cross stitch sets) Selection boxes for 25p/50p each, and some girly make up/toiletry stuff for my SD for her birthday, all 50p each.
Not in the sale, but still dirt cheap, I got my SD a Hello kitty backpack from good old Home Bargains, for £3.49, which I am filling with the sale stuff from wilkos, along with loads of other HK stuff they had in HB.
SD now has all her birthday presents, ready for June. Whoop!!!

I managed to get a few presents in the disney store sale, but not at bargain prices like yours, Well done.

Great bargains AK! I picked up a few girls glitter toiletry sets in Boots for half price (will be useful for parties this year, Joshua's class is very girl heavy) and got a half price turkey in Sainsburys this morning which I'm going to cook and freeze the meat in portions for meals.

My Mum spent close to £100 in the boots sale. I know what i'm getting for this Christmas now... smellies.

I had forgotten I managed to get presents for my mum, my niece and a friend in the boots sale and a good present for my nephew in the Debenhams sale. They all have their birthdays in januray tho, so I do this every year.

I managed to get a couple of birthday presents in the sales, but tbh, that's about it. I don't really have the free cash to go spending, and yet there's loads of stuff I've seen that I want.

Chids, I save cash in Nov/Dec purely to go sales shopping after Christmas.

I think the sales have been poor this year.

They haven't been the best Belle.
We got J a couple of duvet cover sets from Asda for £2.50 each, which we were chuffed with, and H bought me some hair clippers in Sainsburys for £12, down from £30, to save me from keep borrowing my Dads, but that is about it really, apart from the stuff from wilkos

I hate reading these threads AK> The sales here are crap (unless you have got enough money to buy an apartment with cash, they'll throw in a Ferrari during January... )
