What can I buy from Argos for £4ish to win a bet?

Shocksandboooos · 23/10/2018 10:40

I have £4 worth of Argos vouchers that run out on Friday.
Dh tried to throw them in the bin this morning, saying that I wouldn’t be able to get anything worth having with them without adding a lot on.
I need to win this bet as I lost the last one and haven’t lived it down.

I thought I’d cracked it when I found a pair of slippers but you have to pay online for TU clothes and the vouchers can’t be used online.
We have a 2 year old so stocking filers are a possibility. Please hit me with your best suggestions so that I can wipe the smug look off dh’s face. Grin

I have one of those! She's called Merlina and I bought her from Sainsies last year. She lives on my mantlepiece.

I am so sad that I am late to the party and that there are no more ravens in my area!

I laughed at PBeaker from Hull question too. I reserved the last raven in Hull for £1.20. I am collecting tomorrow. Will I know instinctively on sight what to name him/her?!

Beryl is a fab name!!! I quite like Bridgette for mine. My mum is collecting her for me tomorrow and I will officially meet Bridgette on Friday.

I think Bridget needs a tutu and a tiara.

I don’t know where Minerva is!! I haven’t found her and dh is keeping quiet. I am sure that she will be somewhere very obvious but I haven’t spotted her yet.
If they had had them in stock in my area at £1.20 I would have bought a load and really got my own back on dh.
So, if you were my husband, where would you hide a raven?

There's no ravens within 50 miles of me... My life is incomplete.

In the airing cupboard? In the hoover bag? Staring at you when you open the loft hatch? In the rabbit's hutch? In the freezer?

In the back of your cupboard/wardrobe/shed?

Raven Haven? Boot of the car. In the outside bin. Is there a household task that only you do - that would be my first choice.

Work bag? Gym bag? Anywhere only you would use but not DH? Outside somewhere?

Ravens are famous for guarding towers. Do you have a tower OP?

I am so late reading this thread 🦅.

So last week I took my DS to the Tower of London for the first time. It was really good but the thing we kept talking about was THE RAVEN that sat next to us and stared into our eyes just centimetres away. These birds have no fear and are the size of small dogs I swear.

www.hrp.org.uk/tower-of-london/explore/the-ravens/#gs.IBZrvYo

So I come on here and feel far too excited to read that I can buy one. Okay, not a real one but good enough. But as I’ve seen that mumsnetters have cleaned Argos out of them and so gutted there’s none at any of my local stores. BUT then I check the store nearest my Dad (75 miles away) and they have two left in stock. I’ve bought them both. I’ve already named them Charles & Anne.

Do I drive the 150 mile round trip today to collect my £2.40 purchase? Not sure if I can wait til next month to see my Dad who could collect them for me today.
