If I’ve missed anything good from any last threads onto the list please let me know.

Warning from Ialreadytoldyou - Loom bands and loom band charms from Asia have been tested and have been carrying a dangerous level of carcinogenics. It's quite worrying tbh, the report says it can get into the body through the skin when worn, especially if the wearer is sweating and also if anything is put in the mouth. Apparently you wouldn't know until the wearer has children and they have defects. article here

I’m feeling very festive now
Ainsburys has started to discount some of it's Christmas stuff (decorations, smelly things like candles, decorations in the household area as well as the seasonal aisle, etc)- seems to be around 25-50% off, some bits marked down twice.
Ainsburys? Where's autocorrect when you need it?
That would be Sainsburys obviously!
Right guys I'm stuck. Two of my most expensive items are just not presenting themselves as a bargain to me
I'm after a Go Pro camera (the £100 one) and some form of Star Wars lego (preferably AT-AT) but both are really expensive and I can't find any deals.
Very/Isme can't find my address for some reason, so won't let me open a credit account and use the £30 off code. Are there any deals at all that people know of for anywhere that might sell these items? Getting desperate now!
argh royal mail have lost a parcel went to pick it up and they couldn't find it, admitted they had lost it and took details to get in touch if they find it only thing is I'm not sure what it was! as I've got four things due so not sure what to do now
Anyone know what the next boots star gift will be?
Anyone seen any battery operated tea light things?
I am all done and dusted, hurray.
But now my DM wants to know what to buy my DDs. I have suggested scooters but am not sure.
1 - the mini micro scooters are quite expensive
2 - DD1 has special needs and although very interested in them would find it difficult to coordinate the action (but it would be really good for her if she could) and DD2 is 20months (but absolutely must have whatever DD1 has and is much better coordinated).
With one scooter there'd be a massive fight but not sure if DD1's would ever actually get used (she can't pedal a trike).
I saw battery operated tealights in Ikea auntie maggie
Lakeland also sell the tealights.
Excited by new thread.
From next Thursday Aldi will apparently have various Frozen, batman, Spider-man & Sofia Onesies for £6.99, Pyjamas for £4.99, Dressing Gowns for £6.99 and 3 X Socks for £2.49.
AuntMaggie Costco had battery operated tealights and also bigger candles - and not only were they battery operated but they were remote control too
which struck me as a very first world thing
Bet you could have lots of fun with them if people didn't know they were operated by a remote control... [evil festive grin]
If anyone's giving a cake pop maker of any sort, they've got cake pop sticks in Poundland at 50 for £1 which is the cheapest by a long way that I've found them on the high street.
They're part of a Jane Asher baking range that also includes everything from tins and paper cases, cake boards, palette knife, whisk, chocolate moulds, nice little gratin dishes, to cake mixes, frosting and cake decorations - all for a pound each obviously. But if anyone's making up a baking type hamper or wants some kids cooking stuff that looks reasonable quality whilst being cheap, it's definitely worth investigating!
wanders off to make 200 marshmallow olaf snowmen, on the aforementioned cake pop sticks, for the school christmas fayre tomorrow instead of sitting here doing more bargain hunting
Remember the body shop 40 percent off for card holders plus free gift bundle if you spend over £30 is on today and tomorrow.
Clinique is also doing daily offers on their website and so are loccitane.
Wilkinsons also have battery powered tea lights for 50p each. You can get either a blue/white light or amber.
Marking place because I can never find threads on the ipad!
Wilkos have the battery operated tea lights.
Hobby craft also have battery operated tea lights. I've got some on my windowsill with my jam jar Christmas scenes they look very festive.
Lakeland also have battery tea lights.
Norks Soap of Glory £29 RRP £60 apparently everyone goes wild for soap of glory
goes live 12th December
I got caught up in the Soap and Glory thing last year and bought one (with points). I was distinctly disappointed.
The cleanser hurt my eyes and didn't remove make-up and the thick body cream so was thick it wouldn't come out of the dispenser. Never used the scrub (does anyone ever use those?) and only just finished the shower cream, that was ok. The bag it came in was rubbish as it only held its shape with the cardboard box still inside it.
