Never too early for a bargain

Hello all on yet another rainy day!

So, this week I started my Christmas and birthday shopping for the year! I realise the mention of the ‘C word’ is very painful for some people prior to November but I do like to be organised. I’m a firm believer in buying something when you see it, rather than panic buying closer to the time, when you end up buying something over-priced and with little thought gone into it. I also have quite a big family, so the thought of saving it till 2 pay days before Christmas brings me out in a bit of a cold sweat!

My bargains this week were all birthday ones and for the little guys and gals in the family, who are always fun to buy for.

First up this adorable Disney Princess dress up gown with matching tiara from Tesco. Full price this was £12.50, reduced to £4.00 in the sale. I was browsing the clothing sale rail for something for my little boy when I spied this. Really chuffed with it and hopefully the little girl in question will love it too.

Next up was this Animgaic Rescue Hospital horse recovery play set, also from Tesco. I would have adored this as a little girl, as I was horse obsessed. Who am I kidding – I still am! This currently retails on Amazon at £8.90, so was a great little buy for £2.00.


I’ve noticed that you don’t tend to find these sorts of deals on the Tesco Direct website but, instead, in store, so I would say it’s always worth keeping your eyes peeled throughout the year to pic up those end of line bargains.

Finally for the little Disney Cars obsessed man in my life, a Disney Cars Mack Truck Transporter. Sam loves Mack from the film and this has the benefit of the truck folding out to become a play set. This usually retails at £22.99, which I think is fairly shocking for a piece of plastic! I picked this up for £11.99 in the sale from Argos, which is much more acceptable and a good deal, as the cheapest I could find it anywhere was £15.99. It’s been stashed away for the wee one’s 3rd birthday and I am sure he will be thrilled.

I’ll be updating my bargains throughout the year. I would to hear some of yours!
