I can’t help but smile remembering myself and Edward few years ago and seeing us now. We were not interested in saving money whatsoever, used to spend a lot on clothes and other (mostly unnecessary) things, used to live from salary to salary and didn’t want to see it any other way!
After we done some shopping on the weekend for our children, I now can clearly see how much we changed! Going through the items that we bought and checking their price tags, I realised, that nearly all our weekend purchases were bought in sales. Coincidence? I don’t think so. We are just turning in to – so-called – bargain hunters!
See it yourself.
For Luka (12 years old) our aim was to get some summer clothes, as she (lucky for some) will be going to Tenerife with her dad (my ex-husband) soon for some holiday and to the wedding.
We bought her 2 vest tops – white and green, from Peacocks shop – £3 each. They also had pink in colour, but Luka had chosen those two.
One more t-shirt for Luka, also from Peacocks store was £5. It has a slightly longer back, looks pretty nice when on.
From TK Maxx we got Luka a lovely hoody for £9.99 (not on sale, but still a good price) and pink Legging Shorts, that were discounted from £7.99 to £4.00. What a bargain. 🙂
While shopping for our daughter Daniella (3 years old) I definitely feel like we did a good job! At Marks & Spencer, we got her set of 3 lovely long sleeve tops. From £12 discounted to £8 and set of 3 leggings, that had a price of £7 reduced from £11! Told you, we are nearly professional bargain hunters!
For our poor little Harry (8 months old) we only bought some bodysuits, that were not actually discounted. However, I love those bodysuits so much, that I always buy them same ones once he grows out! 🙂 They are not very pricey either – £11 for 7 bodysuits. And the quality is really worth every penny of it!
Our intentions were to buy some tracksuit bottoms for Harry and some shoes. He needs it desperately. But I couldn’t find anything that I would really love. I might just look for it online.
Told you, with the age, we are turning into bargain hunters. What’s next – looking for coins on the beach? 😀
