Okay, we went through a few gates over the past few months, Robotgate, Muradgate... but all in all I've never had so much fun internet shopping and really have saved a fortune thanks to the bargain thread.

Thank you Reastie for keeping it going, it felt like a full time job keeping up with the thread at times. I don't know how you managed it.

Also thank you to everybody who participated in posting bargains and helping others find special requests.

Thanks for introducing me to claiming freebies from magazine subscriptions. These have saved me a fortune with the gifts I've had.
Elemis bath milk
Rihanna perfume x2
Oasis watch (which will find a good home through the local toy appeal)
Gift of Murad
Sanctuary goodies
Dove hair sets x2
Body Shop (not arrived yet, but never mind)

Thanks also to the mnetters who posted about the following...
Furby boom (£33)
Elemis body cream from house of fraiser
Make up sets from house of fraiser
The many stocking fillers from China on Amazon
Beer52
The Tesco toy bundles
And all the information about flash sales or codes for money off and free delivery.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.
See you all next year fgrin

Thank you reastie, you have saved me a fortune, and cost me a fortune all at the same time.

VoldemortsNipple Sun 22-Dec-13 19:38:30

Ahh..Hearmuffs, the one that got away. I kept stalling over them and then they went full price again. sad

A massive thank you from me. I have no idea how I would have afforded Christmas this year of it wasn't for the bargain threads.

Now who wants to start us off in the January sales this time? Then we can be done by the summer and feel even more smug than this year fgrin

I could see what work Reastie was putting in, so I too would like to acknowledge her hard work.

Well said Voldemort I have been staying away since I finished my shopping but I have saved an absolute FORTUNE thanks to the bargain threads. My budget stretched further than I ever imagined.

Huge HUGE thank you to everyone who posted, I really enjoyed them and almost regretted finishing my shopping so early and having to stay away! Looking forward to seeing you all again next year!

A very festive wine for all! fgrin
