girlwiththeyellowhats do we have any news yet? <impatient>

Fifth thread already, how did that happen?! I’ve booked our panto tickets now so am feeling very festive grin . Tips I learnt from the last thread number 24837 - wrap a huge cardboard box in christmas gift wrap to put all the rubbish on christmas day in rather than a bin bag so you don’t get a black plastic sack in all of the photos

Please forgive the fact that so many sale and amazon products aren’t individually linked or are linked but price may since change by the time you click on it - so many of them are out of stock and amazon seem to change prices on an almost hourly basis (it feels like) on a number of items that were previously linked to. As usual please tell me if any of these links/codes don’t work or if there’s anything particularly you want to be in the next OP (assuming there is another wink ) how would I do any shopping without you now

thanks for all your help in helping my christmas shopping in 2013 be once again bargainous grin

I put this on the Xmas hamper thread but if you google the Christmas emporium it's a all year Xmas shop that sells baubles and can personalise them. We bought 1 for our ds last year from the shop.

RhondaJean Mon 02-Sep-13 21:13:06

WOOO I'm here...

Nothing to offer right now though sorry.

hippoherostandinghere Mon 02-Sep-13 21:14:41

FrantasticO Mon 02-Sep-13 21:20:56

Thank you for lovely new thread!
2 more pay days til Xmas as I try to use no embers for food, and days out.

On mse water and sand table for £7.50 or reported to be £3.50 in store, worth a look if in tesco.

Still looking for tablet bargains, they may not exist!

NeverKnowinglyUnderstood Mon 02-Sep-13 21:21:40

marking place

FrantasticO Mon 02-Sep-13 21:22:45

No embers in food is always good, however should have been November.grin

GirlWithTheYellowHat Mon 02-Sep-13 21:28:50

Just thought I'd close out the last thread!

No news, hope I don't see another thread filled up whilst still brewing this baby

Slainte Mon 02-Sep-13 21:28:56

We're flying through these threads. How many do you think we'll get to by Christmas?!

Thanks again Reastie smile

Slainte Mon 02-Sep-13 21:30:40

Oh girlwith you've still got a bit to go so you never know!! The countdown must be hard, I never got there as was induced early.

WaitMonkey Mon 02-Sep-13 21:32:34

grin at the title.

I picked up a Lego friends pet parlour set in Tesco this morning. Only £7.50, still marked up on the shelf as £30. so probably a miss price. £22.20 on Amazon. Worth checking out if your going to Tesco.

Neeko Mon 02-Sep-13 21:33:03

Wow Reastie. Another epic post. You ladies are so good at these bargains though I'm struggling to keep up with you all. Have just ordered some of those lovely mugs for myself and my coffee switching colleagues.
Don't have anything to add for bargains though I'm keeping my eyes peeled.
Thanks again all.

Leilandri Mon 02-Sep-13 21:38:03

flowers Reastie Thread 5 already! grin

WaitMonkey Mon 02-Sep-13 21:40:41

Girl when are you due ? Is it your first ? A Christmas bargain thread baby. So exciting.

ilove have you heard from Vetbaudet again yet ?

Oreocrumbs Mon 02-Sep-13 21:43:08

Many thanks and much cake again Reastie!

I know on the last thread I linked to the princess nighties in Argos and Poppy posted about the Thomas set, but I've had another look and there are quite a few more bargains on there.

Several sets of slippers for £1.99, there is a peppa pig version of the £10 Thomas set, some peppa pig slipper boots for £5 that I've reserved for DD, and other reduced nightwear. Worth a little look.


Bluetinkerbell Mon 02-Sep-13 21:50:24

Thanks Reastie

paperclipsarebetterthanstaples Mon 02-Sep-13 21:50:59

Thanks for all the work you've put in again Reastie cake

Vertbaudet sent me a wooden pull along train to replace the bag (i emailed before I received the bag but tbh didn't think it was that bad for a freebie). The train is fab!
