Next sale what?

My Christmas always includes the Next Sale, this year it was Boxing Day, would rather day after but hey can’t complain as the workers have to be there too. I done a VIP slot sale but with it being one of the last slots there wasn’t much left in any sizes i wanted. If i can i do the shop sale, i actually prefer the shop sale rather than the VIP, but the one thing that is better about VIP is that you get better more wanted items on there, like pjs, coats etc. Me and the mother were ready in the queue at 5:15am waiting 45mins for the doors to open. Most think it is truely insane, but once you are in the queue i find the time goes quick. It’s when i get home all i want is bed (which may i add never happens until the night time, once kids have gone to bed).

It wasn’t too bad of a shop, i didn’t think there was as much as usual in it, but still managed to have 4 big bag full plus a new kettle and toaster wahoo!


So the Next sale is over, what’s next on my list after Christmas? Toy sale shopping… Once pay day is here (tomorrow, Yehh!) I then have the task of finding things for Jess’ birthday (15th Jan) and Thomas’ (24th Jan). I bought a few items in the offers for Xmas presents, but not enough to not need to have to buy more for birthday. Jess is nearly done thankfully. Thomas has a big Lego set and may buy another biggish Lego set, to then complete more or less his presents, which also include moshi monsters things (do not understand these in the slightest but he asked for them) some pjs and pants (So exciting hey lol). It’s so hard having all the kids birthdays near Christmas (Amy Oct) because you come to summer time and they have nothing. So we then need to go out and buy toys for garden. This year a few family members bought the kids gift cards for Toys R Us. So the kids had a good shop in there yesterday and still have £19 left which will be kept until summer towards something for the garden.

I am hoping there are still some good bargains to be had tomorrow to finish the birthday present buying. Then that’s it for another 9months before the madness of present buying starts again.


Next Sale

Today is the day the slots have started to come out for the Next sale. I LOVE Next clothes for the kids, and will be up bright and early on Boxing Day to head to the shop sale. I always find the Christmas one the best one. I’m also hoping i get a VIP slot with later batches, can’t make the first slots anyway this year (Saturday) as at wedding, so hopefully i’ll be invited and can get a Sunday one.

I know i’m not the only bonkers one to get up super early on Boxing day for it, I don’t feel how tired i am because i am shopping!! I love shopping for kids clothes! All kids need the next size up so will hopefully do well on trying to get new wardrobes for the 3 of them!

I was actually bonkers enough to do the Christmas sale in 2010 37weeks pregnant lol. It was a bit hard, the bump got some strokes, some shocked faces at how close i was and at the sale, and some saying just bashing me into railings (poor bump). I got some great outfits the bump (now known as Jessica) was well worth it all!
