Bargain shopping! (22+6)


While I might have failed at sales shopping earlier in the week (bought lots of lovely things but all full price – oops) today I have redeemed myself.

Today my asos maternity coat arrived – just in time really, as I was really struggling to do up my smart coat and was wondering what I would wear to school next week. Having only ordered it on Thursday, I’m pretty impressed that it turned up today. Good work, Asos!

I am, however, pretty glad I went for the size 10 as it’s huge! I know I have a lot more growing to do, so I’m sure I’ll need it, but at the moment it feels like I have a LOT of room. Luckily though, I don’t think it looks like a tent, which lots of maternity coats seem to. So I’m really pleased!


The other bargain of the day is from the Babies R Us sale – these gro bags were reduced almost to half price. Everybody I have spoken to swears by them so I knew they were definitely on my list. Seeing them half price was a real stroke of luck. I was a little concerned earlier in the week when I saw them in T.K.Maxx – I thought they might be cheaper there but they weren’t! Good news. It’s worth remembering though – they were only a pound or so more there.


So today I am feeling rather smug about how much money I’ve saved. Which may soon go out the window as I have fallen in love with a different pram. And unfortunately this one is an icandy… More on that later!

  1. Lovin’ the coat and the bargains! Just to let you know the Angel care monitor (best reviewed one) is now £64 on Amazon…another bargain (should be £100) find if you are on monitor phase. Thought I would get back in contact as we have demo’d the uppababy vista and…..that’s the one. Much like a bride and a dress – I think we’ve found the one. I would recommend you go and do a demo just to rule it out if anything : ) Happy pregnancy again.

    • Thank you so much! I *think* I’m being given/buying an Angel care monitor from a friend, so hoping to not have to buy one new. Today I’ve been looking at breast pumps (!) as they’re half price in Babies R Us too. I feel like that is a step beyond where I am right now though! Good news about the Uppababy Vista. I’ll have a look, although I really like 3 wheel ones and I have a feeling that it might not fold down quite small enough for us. I’m currently watching reviews of it on youtube as I type!! Thanks for the advice x
