Next…Sale shopping

Next, Sale shopping, yes its 6am on Boxing Day and I will be up in the dark getting ready, usually quietly ready to leave for the shops. Ok, so the rest of my extended family think I am nuts, and they may well be right! But I do like a bargain.

I have been shopping at this time of the morning for the last 7 years, only twice a year but it has now become as much part of Christmas as the turkey itself. I have complete wardrobes of clothes for the boy, and am now buying a few age 12y. I have been caught out as his tastes change and angry birds are very much out, star wars is still in though!

Its time to treat myself, pick up the odd Christmas gift for 2014, and most importantly curtains! I had no idea how curtains could affect my sleep so much. There is something comforting when you can shut the world out with a thin piece of material. Being back in my bedroom is great after so long in the dining room. Curtains are at the top of my list, so watch out NEXT as here I come…

    1. didn’t get much this time, no home wares left, and very little boys stuff. Will have to try earlier next time!

    1. Wasn’t too good this time went at 7am and all kids stuff had gone, always find pants and socks, and a lampshade for £3! so not all bad…

  1. Better luck to you in the next time in the, NEXT sale. I also like the next sale, but it’s just far to busy for me so I always go later in the day when I can move, didn’t find anything I wanted though this year.

  2. I think you are mad too! For me Boxing Day should still be a family day, but each to their own! I know given the choice my OH would be up at 5am ready to grab the bargains too! Next sales drive me mad, so many crazy people!
