I went to Bluewater yesterday mooched for 2 hours and came home with socks for H and a jumpsuit pyjama thing - typical as I had mone to spend.
We are going to Ashford Outlet today for a wander before my no shopping resolution comes into play!

I've bought some xmas decs, a jumper for L, skirt & top for K which actually weren't in the sales and am going lake side today to hopefully get bag and shoes.

I#ve bought a top in Fat Face and some underwear and that's about it. I don't think much to the sales so far.

I've found them to be pretty poor. I got a top from Fat Face and new wellies for O but that was it.

I've bought a few Tshirts, Cardiagans, Wrap jumpers etc and a pair of Chino's in prep for LOs arrival - I am usually a dress kind of girl but thinking I may find trousers easier to BF at first.
I also got H some trainer/pump type things to wear with his Chinos. That's about it really, much much less than usual!

I've not been to any sales i don't usually bother as I have never found them any good and I can't stand having to trawl through everything. I do need to get some jeans for my 3 year old so might go to our local mall today.

H and I went to town yesterday and were really disappointed, the only sale things we bought were Christmas cards ahead of next year! I've had a few bits from Asda online and a bargain swimsuit that was £8 reduced from £22 on Mamas and Papas but that's been it.

I've not bought anything. But then I couldn't be bothered to go to Next on Boxing Day, which is where I normally get some bargains, and if you don't go on the first day it does tend to be rubbish. Although I got H some slippers from there and they had to be exchanged and the new ones were in the sale so I saved money there.
Lots of shops had reductions just before Christmas anyway so there wasn't always new sale stuff if that makes sense.

I got a Stokke xplory pushchair for half price (thanks Sofa Leopard) so I am chuffed to bits!

i got LOADS for the boys in the next sale, some underwear for me and some jumpers, an xmas tree (half price), xmas lights and wrapping paper
o and H has just this minute bought a SMEG fridge for £480 for our kitchen extension thats not built yet

I got some plain table mats for when we have visitors should have been £29 for each set but got 2 for £28 so a good bargain, and have just given in and ordered a tumble dryer which was £70 reduced at currys, but they were out of stock so got elsewhere for the same price, not much else.

I spent two hours and £90 in Next; I got two pairs of jeans, a pair of trousers for work, a swimming cossie, two bras, and four/maybe five tops.
£35 in a sports store on a new pair of trousers, sports bra, and two tops.
£20 in Lush as all their stuff was half price, it was a £20 gift card that I got for Christmas though or I wouldn't have.
£10 on a lovely cardigan thing I've wanted for ages, and also a bargainous pair of £6 leggings in new look.
I'm planning to head back to Boots as they had some great half price gifts, I might stock up for birthdays and stuff through the year.
So far I've been impressed!

I can't bear sale shopping so have avoided shops since Christmas! There's nothing we want or need and I'd rather shop when the new season stuff is out.

I've only really looked at Next online which I thought was awful, and I went in a few shops today - M&S also rubbish for anything for C (ended up swapping a Christmas gift that he found too itchy for stuff that wasn't in the sale), GAP was ok but nothing I wanted for C (another Christmas gift that had to return as too small), and Accessorize had the purse I wanted before Christmas at half price so pleased with that one!

I did really well in the sainsburys sale today. I bought lots of presents for the toy cupboard for parties throughout the year. I bought hello kitty things, owl and *** cat purses and owl and cat money boxes with 70% off.

I've got all of J's birthday presents put away for June :-) Scooter, helmet, duplo set and a Thomas the Tank play set - all at least half price
I had a jumper my 18 month old got from the MIL to return to Debenhams today and the clothes sale was crap so ended up with the Happyland airport set half price :-)
