Nikki put the credit/debit card down & slowly step way from the computer

Same as above, not bought a thing. Not seen an item that I have been interested at all.

I hope the true January sales are better.

Mostly been perfume and toys today, so if you are not interested in these then suppose it would be bit pants

Quite a few blu rays that I'm going to pick up, but other than that, very disappointed on this year's sales!

Must be my lucky day then, seems I am the only one spending!

Disappointed with the high street sales today, their was stuff reduced but nothing decent and would end up buying stuff for the sake of it and only purchased a few things but think the online sales have been better as long as you get the stuff as some things flying out quickly

Levi 511 slim jeans £42 from £85
Battlefield 2 ps3 game £9.99

Probably go back into town another day for a look and see if can get anything else. Think the sales were well better last year and was hoping with the vat increase due then some good sales but doesn't seem the case so far on the high street

Picked up a couple of perfumes for the OH and 4 of the TravelloAtomisers on sale, for £3 BARGAIN.
As i enjoy light travelling, ive got 2 for me and 1 for the OH one for a gift.

other than that, dissapointed so far. maybe the new year sales willf are better.

sales have been non existent so far

had two deals for oh from amazon today.

I am hoping for more bargains on the high street. Will venture out tomorrow and see.
Amazon has been tempting me all day!

I hate shopping with a passion, but went into town this afternoon.
It wasn't busy at all, and only spent £50. Bonus.

I haven't puchased anything yet because I have been to a party.

you and most of the rest of the country lol

I was out early yesterday and saw Next was really quiet - went in and they had reduced all the bedding and curtains regardless of size to £3. Its a Next clearance store. I picked up a few packs as that sort of stuff will get used. Also pillowcases reduced to 50p for pack of two.

Other than that havent had time to look yet but dont need anything so am going to try steer clear!

I used to think it was crazy to own a lovely dinner service and rarely use it............until last year someone gave us a Villeroy & Boch set - the New Wave design for a wedding gift and I have only used it three times! Even on Christmas Day my beady eyes were watching everyone "just in case"! The tea spoons for that set are around £10 each!! Its all wrapped back up and away in a safe place and my blood pressure is back to normal lol
