    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!


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 27,551 Mod ✭✭✭✭Posy


    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!

    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 :(
