I spent £134 on DD (age 2) £66 on DH (33) & £7.49 on me !!! Still I did get a free pair of trousers which cost £14.99

It's all over the lounge floor & I'm about to decide what to keep

I ordered a metal four poster kingsized bed for uas for when we move, Misdee put it on her card and is going to store it for me till we move. It was 95 pounds instead of 200

£4.49, i just went into town telling myself that i wasn't going to go to next as a protest for their extremley dull autumn/winter clothes for boys, but still once i was there found myslef drawn towards it, but could only find a shirt for ds2 that i liked. i did pick up a load of clothes for me and ds1, but when i was stood in the massive queue i changed my mind and put most of it back apart from the shirt!

then went down the high street and spent £300 in monsoon and £80 in Dune!

£52.00 - 2 pairs of jeans for me and 2 tshirts each for the ds's. Went for about 10.00 ish and it was the quietest I've seen it - only a couple in front of me at the tills.

mandymoo Sat 23-Jul-05 21:22:58

nothing - is there a next sale on or something then? <mandymoo skulks off in a mood cos she knew nothing about it>

stacijc Sat 23-Jul-05 21:26:22

milward Sat 23-Jul-05 21:36:26

Nothing - only shop when I absolutely have to

tassis Sat 23-Jul-05 21:42:15


Bought for me, dh, ds and a few gifts.

For me I got 3 pairs of jeans, 3 pair of trousers, 3 tops and a skirt and only the skirt fits.

I'd say 90% os it is going back.

katymac Mon 25-Jul-05 22:20:56

I think you are all mad - my local Next made £550,000 on the first day of the sale....WHY???

It can't be that good...can it?

expatinscotland Mon 25-Jul-05 22:26:56

Not a jot! I went in there looking for the toilet, not realising a sale was on. NO WAY! Mob scenes are not for me.

serenity Mon 25-Jul-05 22:35:27

£65, which is what I spent last time as well!

I go to get DSs school coats, as I find the Next ones take the abuse they dole out more than cheaper ones do.

So, I spent £30 on school coats for DS1 and 2, £15 on a jumper for DH, I got DS1 a t-shirt and DS2 a pair of trousers and the rest went on jeans and a couple of long sleeved tops for DD. Nothing for me as they don't do flabby mum sizes......

kid Mon 25-Jul-05 22:41:05

I wonder if any MNers are going to offer their unwanted bargains on here to us that didn't get to the sale (because we are not mad enough to be queuing up at 5am)

80sMum Mon 25-Jul-05 22:49:43

I've done what I usually do; ordered about £300-worth of stuff so that I have some choice - and with a bit of luck one or two things might be OK. I always think that if you're paying £3.50 for delivery (and returns are free)you may as well order loads of stuff and get different sizes, colours etc. then send all the rejects back. I usually only keep about 10% or so of what I've ordered.

hunkermunker Mon 25-Jul-05 22:57:49

£33.41 Lots of things for DS in the next size up, a pair of trousers for me (wishful thinking - size 10, not maternity...but a bargain!).

hunkermunker Mon 25-Jul-05 22:58:11

Spent that today though - not at 5am on Saturday

sorrel Mon 25-Jul-05 23:22:42

which is success for me as i am broke!

Mojomummy Tue 26-Jul-05 10:53:20

kid I've got some stuff which will be going back - girls 1 1/2 - 2 years mainly. + 3/4 length denim trousers in size 8 & 10.

Let me know if you, or if anyone else is interested - can post photo's too.

Will be returning to next on Friday otherwise

Lizzylou Tue 26-Jul-05 10:55:50

Spent £45 online yesterday on maternity clothes for me as last time round I was so depressed looking like a beached whale!
Tried but failed to find anything for DS...nothing left! Will scoot on down to Next to Nothing soon for him......

Toothache Tue 26-Jul-05 11:00:09
