Marks and Spencer Sale

January 31, 2012

A 50% Marks and Spencer Sale started today. 

I popped in to have a look, only a few rails reduced but most items were reduced by 50%. I wouln’t make a special journey to it but it’s worth a look if you’re passing by

I strongly believe in helping others but i get tired constantly shelling money out to people. Here are some ways you can help make the world a better place and it won’t cost you a penny.

  • Sweep outside your house
  • Collect vouchers from Supermarkets – even if you don’t intend using them – and drop them into your local charity shop.
  • Drop any unwanted clothes or toiletries into your local women’s refuge.
  • Donate unwanted duvets to your local Dogs Trust
  • Donate rags to Liberties Recycling
  • Buy upcycled furniture from the non-profit community scheme Busy Bee Furniture in Crumlin.

Making Do

January 26, 2012

Saw a great tip on Superscrimpers programme on Channel 4 the other night. Apparantly the nets you get onions in are great for scrubbing off stains!

Also starting reading a blog by a woman who has vowed not to buy any unessential items in 2012 and to make do with what she has. I admire her ambition. Don’t think i have the willpower to do without retail therapy.

Argos have kids costumes at good reductions currently. Outfits that were €22 are now €15. Search kids costumes on their website to see selection.

Cheaper Kids Haircuts

January 23, 2012

I’m on a mission to find a cheap way to get my haircuts. My son can get his hair done at the local barber for €10 but i need somewhere to get my daughter’s hair done.

Kiddie Kuts are dear enough at €20 but if you go to their website you can get a €3 euro voucher off here.

Good value napkins in Tesco

January 23, 2012

These really cute napkins are only 50cent in Tesco at the moment. Ideal for kids parties.

Supervalu are selling Pampers Baby-Dry Jumbo Pack Range, Active Fit Maxi Plus and Junior Plus Jumbo Packs for €10 per box. I got a box of 62 size 6 for €10, which is 16 cent per nappy.

This is dearer than the the current offer on in Tesco, which is 38 size 6 Huggies superdry nappies for €5.69 but Pampers size 6 are bigger than Huggies.

Supervalu also have 400g of pork mince for €3 and 550g of round steak mince for €2.50.
