We didn't have enough last year. I'm trying to budget hard this Xmas, but I NEED lights!! I used to have a lovely star light 'curtain' from ikea but it died last Xmas and can't see anything like it in their current range. I want them all over the place!!

Somewhere like b&m? Or the range? Both had lots in their Christmas ranges this week, although I'm not sure how they compare on price. You might find the price drops in December, often trees are reduced etc.

The range! Or Ikea although they aren't that cheap

The range for sure. Had to stop DH splurging on lights in there this weekend.

Wilkos have a few. The supermarkets too.

I remember last year there were no reductions until after boxing day. We have a B and m near me, I've never been in there! Is it cheap?

I came to say The Range. Really good leds and pretty cheap.

Oh my goodness, get yourself to b&m. More tat than you can shake a stick at and cheap as chips!

I was in B&M earlier, they have every shape and colour you could want and start from £2.99

I love lights4fun. I have to limit myself because I have a bit of an obsession with fairy lights.

Yep B&M or asda

Poundstrecher and b and m. Got some for £6 in b and m yesterday

We got a billion sets from the Range last year.
Getting more this year. Can't wait!

Oh no, I've just been on the Range and bought two projector lights.

I was really looking for some outside lights..I've been looking for bloody ages and lots of places tell you how many lights but not how bloody long they are...so frustrating

Poundstretcher. There were loads reduced (last year's stock I expect) in my local one yesterday. I bought 100 teal berry lights for £3.49! I bought loads after Christmas last year when they were cheap as chips - five packs of 380 multifunction microlights for £2.50 a pack. It's going to be a very sparkly Christmas fgrin
