Yes I said it and I know it’s only September but I really need to get my bum in gear and start organising more.

I have a few gifts stashed away that I started picking up in the January Sales but with birthdays and holidays coming up I need to start planning and budgeting better for the festivities.

So expect a few lists and organinsing posts ovet the next couple of months.

A few things I need to check out:
– Smyths 20% weekend 16-19th September

– Argos 3 for 2 on toys Sept/Oct

-Sainsburys Toy Sale October
