January Sales Haul


Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas.  Mine was spent at home with family, which is just how I like it.

After a few days of relaxing, and purposefully avoiding the first crazy days of the sales, I spent yesterday and today doing a bit of shopping.  Luckily the shops weren’t too busy, and though I didn’t go mad, I managed to get quite a few items that I’m really pleased with.  Here are most of them…

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7″ – Was £139.99, Paid £79.00

I bought a few other things in the sales which aren’t pictured, including a pair of gloves for £2.00, some Christmas decorations reduced from £3.00 to £1.00, a diary for £1.99 (down from £7.00) and a Vax hoover for £45.00, reduced from about £70.00.  I also bought a couple of non-sale items too, namely a top and a case for my new tablet.

In total, I made a huge saving of around £90.00 in the sales this year, made all the better by the fact that a few items were paid for using vouchers that I got for Christmas.

What did you get in the sales?

Thrifty Finds No.4: Car Boot


On Sunday I decided to indulge, yet again, in one of my favourite hobbies – thrifting – and got up bright and early to go to two car boot sales in Leicestershire.  In particular I was hoping to find some bargainous clothes to add to my spring/summer wardrobe, and though I came away from the first car boot with nothing (how disappointing!), the second was a veritable treasure trove of fashion!  For the grand total of just £4.50 I managed to get a waterfall cardigan, a thin knit jumper, a t-shirt, and my absolute favourite find of the day, a pair of wedge shoes.


Z Black and grey striped waterfall cardigan £1.50


Next Thin knit black jumper 50p


River Island Skeleton heart t-shirt 50p


Truffle Black velvet wedge shoes £2.00

Total: £4.50

I’m really pleased with this little thrifty haul, and I’m looking forward to styling each item in outfit posts in the near future.  Which is your favourite piece?

January Sales Haul


Since Christmas it has been January Sales galore, both on the high street and on the internet, and I (along with millions of other shoppers, I’m sure) couldn’t resist a browse.  My main aim was to hunt out a couple of pairs of shoes suitable for Spring/Summer, as well as a few items of clothing.  I prefer to relax with my family on Boxing Day, rather than go shopping, but on January 27th I braved it and went into town, but soon gave up as there were far, far too many people for my liking.  So, that evening I sat down with my laptop, a box of chocolates and a cup of tea and browsed the web to my heart’s content.  I must say, I wasn’t that impressed by the quality of the sales this year, but luckily I succeeded in my shoe and clothes buying mission!  I managed to resist binging on make up and perfume gift sets in the Superdrug and Boots sales, but I did get a couple of beauty accessories.


Donnay Purple Canvas Ballet Pumps – £3.50 (£3.49 saving) –


Skechers Sunset Pink and Black Canvas Shoes – £20.00 (£14.99 saving) –


Dr Martens Aldgate Floral Canvas Shoes – £30.00 (£15.00 saving) – Dr Martens


Purple Metallic Manicure Set – £0.99p (saving unknown) – Superdrug


Unwind Cherry Stone Relaxation Pillow – £0.99p (saving unknown) – Superdrug


Purple Heart Knit Dress – £10.00 (£4.99 saving) – Store Twenty One

Blue Paisley Print Top – £5.00 (£4.99 saving) – Store Twenty One

A rather humble haul I know, but I managed to get everything I wanted!  What did you get in the sales this year?
