    It's that time of year again.....

    .... time to take full advantage of sales,price cuts,vouchers etc.!!

    3 hoodies bought for my triplet nephews today in Tesco,and Lego Car Chase bought for another nephew. When I say bought I really mean bought with a gift voucher.

    Also 2 packs of cards from Eason both with 50% off.

    So,that's 4 ticked off the list already......

    Yes, got candles in Meadows and Burns sale. And picked up (full price) items at the Donkey Sanctuary.

    We've got a box of crackers but they'll probably be used at Easter!

    Bought a couple of Christmas guest towels in Homestore for the guests we're definitely not going to have next year. :pac:

    September at the earliest... we tend to get the kids stuff sorted early so we can spread the christmas budget over 3 or 4 paydays (we're both paid monthly) & boy am I glad we do, when we looked back at our spend for 2017 it was well into 4 figures...

    I wouldn't have the will to start before then being honest.

    Got a bag to put the tree in and some gold leaf things to put in my garlands. Roll on December 2018!

    I'm heading to Boots tomorrow to see if there are any gift sets. I am already mulling over what to get people for next Christmas while the season is still up and running. :)

    I have my list started already, Posy! Every year, I start with a list of the people & a budget. Then as the year goes on and I think of presents, I add them to the list so I don't forget & also start buying them & marking off what I've bought! Takes the stress out!


  • Registered Users Posts: 654 ✭✭✭ Colibri


    Not yet but I might start soon.. would definitely be a huge money saver!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,792 Postgrad10


    So I have put the tree in the bag I bought and it's far too heavy for me to lift up :(
