Mothercare Sale Haul

My boys desperately need a wardrobe overhaul! With spring finally here, we needed a bit of colour in our lives. The Mothercare sale started today and so I thought I’d show you what I got.

Blue Joggers – £3.50

Red vegetable top – £3

Yellow caterpillar top – £2

Pants – £1 a packet

There was a lot more I could have bought but the sizes available were hit or miss! Happy shopping!

Boden, John Lewis and Zara haul

Today I had my first experience of a boden clearance event! It wasn’t pleasant! There was about 200 people in the queue in front of me. So 25 minutes after the doors opened I finally got in to find the children’s section empty. Why? Well the people at the fro t of the queue had literally poured the contents of the clothing into their baskets and huddled to the side deciding what they wanted to keep. Anything they discarded on the floor was quickly whipped up by passing greed! No doubt it will all be on eBay soon as I overheard someone was there to simply resell on at higher prices!

So I didn’t get too much. It was badly organised and I don’t think I’ll go again.

I did get a couple of bargains though and afterwards wandered into town to John Lewis and Zara.

Charity Shop Haul

So it’s been a while! Life got busy and priorities changed. But I’m back. 

After school today we ventured up to the village and looked in a couple of charity shops. 

Here’s our little haul:

Usbourne See inside Your Body -£2  (we love these books, lift the flap with lots of information, we have a small collection of these ‘encyclopaedia’ type books for young children)

Mr Bounce – 25p (dudes favourite books at the moment are mr men)

Dear Greenpeace – 50p (written by a local author who visited dudes school recently)

Usbourne noisy Knights – £1 (beat loves noisy books but the ones we have he has ruined as they are paper pages, this is board so hopefully can’t be damaged!)

Cinderellas bum – 50p (funny story book by an it hor we like)

The Giants loo roll – 50p (same author)


We love books so this was a great little find. Highly recommend getting books from charity shops as they are a fraction of the price.

Theres lots of sales on at the moment so I had a little spending spree..oops! Dont tell the hubby! Heres what  bought in Argos, Lidl, Mothercare and Primark.
