    Sales bargains

    Who has been out bargain hunting in the sales over the last couple of days?

    I risked it today and encountered the usual bunch of desperate women with that crazed look in their eye as they battled to get to the clothes racks in Next, along with the Fathers who seem incapable of parking their childs pushchairs anywhere apart from in the middle of an aisle/doorway.

    One sniff of a bargain and folks go mental! However I managed to walk away with 2 pairs of jeans and a top for £55 so I came home happy, only I seem to be in the minority who are able to shop in the sales without elbowing everyone else out the way.

    Rant Over.

    we havw brought the following today in the sales:

    vacum
    iron
    wireless router
    Wall bracket for the flat screen.

    Done quite well with all being in the sales, not much off but enough as we needed them any how. We only went to a large retail park though and that was bad enough for idiots pushing you out of the way! Couldnt manage city centre just yet

    I risked it and went to Bluewater at lunchtime, bit chaos on the M25!!! Was really busy in there, hate it!!! Managed to get 3 pairs of jeans, some combats and belt for just shy of £90! Also got some boots and One Tree Hill first season boxset.

    Went into Apple and got really pissed off with getting elbows in my face whilst looking on the shelves, so barged my way out of there! Bloody hate this time of year, some people are so arrogant!!!

    I suppose getting up at that time is normality for you but you're still crackers!

    Jo was at Next at 6am - working on the priciple that all the 5 oclockers would have been gone and it was too early for later shoppers to start in Next. She spent £120 on bits for Ben throughout the year, some jewelry a watch and some trousers for me, plus some Christmas gifts for next year.

    Next is a traditional sale - 50% discounted items that were at full price a day or two agho - not like some shops that seem to have sale rails they trudge out every christmas of dross.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com
