Didn't bother with clothes, and only bought 4 packs of Christmas cards at some charity shops. However, we're about to order a new kitchen from Wickes - though when do they NOT have a sale!

We had a new extension built during the summer which gave us a bigger dinning room, so in-between Christmas and New Year we went looking in the furniture shops for a sideboard and display cupboard, lots of sales on, got the sideboards I was looking for and a display cupboard and because we spent over a certain amount of money we also were given a £300 mirror for free. there coming on Monday can't wait :-D :-D

We have a major shopping mall close by which had some good offers if you were the right clothes size, not that OH would let me look.

Instead we stuck to The List and got half priced Crackers and wrapping paper, half priced shower rail, and some 'special purchase' bed linen :-D

Sales in my area?

hahahaha that's funny.

We've got a supermarket & about 10 small shops. Maybe the pizza shop is having a sale? :-(


maggiewinchester Report 2 Jan 2013 00:23

I've not bothered looking - though I should have, I threw out a lot of xmas lights (stopped working) and decorations today.

As for clothes, I just look at the sizes on the hangars. Never much for a size 12 dress size or size 4 feet!

Happy New Year to you too :-D

Didn't even bother to go and look, can't manage crowds without a ben hur style wheelchair, even my most lethal crutch is useless.

To be honest I have far too many clothes and shoes anyway. Lots of clothes are a little snug, well can't get them on TBH. But once I'm mobile I will :-D
