As previously, if you shot a link in the OP links isn’t working/no longer in date, please let me know by posting in bold so I can easily see to update thanks

Ahem, I can’t actually remember if I updated the links from 2 threads ago. I think I have, but I’m not sure. If you spot any links that don’t work and you’ve already told me please tell me again in bold thanks and sorry.

Zulily is worth a look and has new stock every day. use this link to earn me some credit for referrals thanks My tip if you’re buying something big with hefty delivery fee is so buy something cheap and small from their site first then you get free delivery for the rest of the day so then go back and buy bulky order.

I’m feeling very festive now grin

I'm thinking of doing 24 mini advent presents for dh and 2 year old ds. Must be cheap, things like choccie bars, stickers, maybe super noodles etc for dh grin . I'd like to only spend a tenner on each of them really. Any ideas or links at all? Will start buying bargains now, and put them aside...

H&M have a 25% off of one item code on their website, if you search there is usually a free delivery code floating around as well.

Is anyone else panicking slightly that it is nearly September?! wink

the designer denim set was back in stock at my local argos for £2.99 from £10.

Keepcalmanddrinkwine Mon 25-Aug-14 18:45:06

ISME are doing the Chill Factor Slushy Cups, Ice Cream Makers, Frozen Yoghurt Makers and Jelly Makers at £10.40 each. I got the Slushy Cups last year for the DDs and they are such a hit I've just ordered a load to go with the named Coke bottles for the cousins.

If anyone wants to open an account and pms me their email you get £20 off your first order if you open a credit account. You can pay off the balance and close it once you've got your stuff but I keep mine ticking over for the bargain codes they send me every so often. I do get a discount code too for everyone I recommend.

My girls still use theirs loads, even though I thought they were rubbish when I first got them. Apparently I was doing it wrong.
