A good day for bargains

We headed off into town this afternoon to buy school shoes. I always leave it as long as possible in the holidays to get the new shoes to avoid any last minute growth spurts. I already knew which shoes we wanted, a pair of Clark's brogues at £54.99. More expensive than the school shoe range but a better heal and sole that could be redone when they are worn down , so I didn't mind the extra expense. Feet measured and shoes collected , the sales assistant told me they had 20% off. The shoes cost me £43.99 which I was very happy with.

Then off to Boots to pick up some bits. The children's toys had a half price sale on selected items plus a 3for 2 offer. I managed to get three things that are a Christmas present and two birthday presents for next year;

Play Mobil Boat £7.50 from £15
Play Mobil Cafe £8.50 from £17
Richard Hammond's Blast Lab science kit £7.50 from £15... Total spend for 3 gifts £16

My last bargain was school blazer , £33 in one shop . I managed to find it in another shop for £26.

So bloggers I am quite chuffed with my bargains today !
