Mothercare Giraffe Chime Toy
I don't know how I'm managing but I seem to be continuing on a Jungle Theme with clothes and toys even though the baby's nursery is Farm Yard Themed!! I'm obviously drawn to the jungle in some way, maybe in a past life... Anyway I managed to snag a cute little giraffe jingly rattle toy thing from Mothercare for half price so £4.99 down to £2.48. Not a massive bargain but a lovely toy and it makes a nice sort of chime noise when batted about. Hopefully it'll be a hit with baby.
Mothercare 3 Pack of Bibs
Continuing on the jungle theme I managed to nab some cute unisex jungle bibs from Mothercare also. It's a 3 pack of bibs which were £6 reduced to £2.50 so I was quite pleased with that purchase. Can never go wrong with too many bibs.
Blooming Marvellous Nightdresses
My other half spotted this bargain for me (also in Mothercare), I knew he was good for something. Glad I kept him around hehe. So managed to snap up a two pack of lovely nightdresses which can be used during pregnancy and for nursing (which I'll be using them for) for the princely sum of £10! These were reduced from £28 and the label said £12 which I thought was a good deal but when I got to the till they came up at £10, major bargain.
Xmas Top from Next
I was very surprised when I walked into Next to find they still had quite a rack of sales items in their children's department. There wasn't that much exciting stuff but I spotted a lovely Christmas top which was half price so purchased it for Logan for this year (2015). Nothing like being prepared! It was £9.00 reduced to £4.50.
As well as the Christmas top I also spotted this cute little baby panda outfit in Next which was half price in size 3-6 months. I couldn't resist and at £7.00 reduced from £14.00 I had to have it.
Whilst browsing the Next children's sale section I found a 3 pack of hats buried in amongst the clothes. They were marked down from £5.00 to £2.50 which was perfect as it's the last thing I really needed for the baby's arrival this week. When I took them to the till however the lady serving said they weren't actually in the sale and had been marked down by mistake, I could have cried. Luckily I asked because it was shop error and they had been clearly marked for sale could I have them for £2.50 anyway. After discussing with her manager they agreed, happy days, so another little bargain there.
Selection of Books
We do love a good book in our house and that reminds me I'll need to do another book feature soon on the blog! Anyway when I popped into Sainsbury's yesterday to grab a few food items I noticed a lot of the children's books on one of their shelves were quite decently priced. I did my usual and got my phone out to scan the books and compare online and was surprised to discover most were half price or less, even when compared with Amazon. I managed to restrain myself and only bought 4 books, some I'll give as presents as they're lovely, but here's what I got:
1. Usborne Lift-theFlap General Knowledge Book - £4.99 (£7.99 on Amazon)
2. Usborne First Sticker Book SPACE - £2.49 (£4.49 on Amazon)
3. Rabbit's Nap (15th Anniversary Edition) a lift-the-flap book - £2.99 (£5.99 on Amazon)
4. Postman Bear (15th Anniversary Edition) a lift-the-flap-book - £2.99 (£5.99 on Amazon)
Melissa & Doug Bead Set
With all the birthday parties happening at the moment (Logan's in the young class) I like to have a stock of presents to hand in case we get any invites, it just makes life a bit easier than running around spending money on a gift that is rushed. Logan has quite a lot of little girls in his class, who far out number the boys, so it's always handy to have some girls presents ready and if they're not used then I usually give to charities at Christmas so it's never wasted. Anyway Amazon currently have a lovely deal on the Melissa & Doug Gleeful Garden Wooden Bead Set reduced from £9.99 to £4.78. It's a gorgeous set and would make such a lovely present. I do like the Melissa & Doug toys and we have quite a few ourselves.
Well that's it for another week. Not sure I'll manage to buy anything much next week as I'll be concentrating on baby but please feel free to share any bargains you've recently purchased.
