Boxing Day Madness: Continued!

When we arrived at Asda on Boxing Day, it was rather empty – although the staff car park was almost full. Kelly was so tired that she ended up going in to Finlay’s and purchasing some Monster energy drink – that certainly did the trick, poor girl!

Finally it was 9am and the shutters were slowly, but surely, lifting up. Kelly and I made tracks to the George department, where yet again we grabbed more bargain clothes! It’s funny actually, because I used to be a size 10-12, but then kinda realised that I ‘love’ food – so it’s pretty difficult finding those designer threads I once owned in ‘plus sizes’. Anyways, George have some fantastic ranges of clothes. The jeans are cheap and always fit my curves nicely. Also, we bought more pyjamas, which funnily enough were only left in mine n Kelly’s sizes. We decided to get two new dressing gowns, as we had disposed of ours last month. And again, more socks! We had such a laugh waltzing the aisles. Again, nothing in the home ware department caught our eye unfortunately. We did however, decide to stock up on the women’s Lynx gift set – OMG, it smells gorgeous!

When we finally returned home, the cats were at the door to greet us. We unloaded our purchases and chilled out for the remainder of the day. Out of everything we purchased, the only thing needing to be returned is a casual sweater which is too big for Kelly, so she pinched mine instead! All in all, we had a fantastic time shopping in the sales. It was such a shame that the Asda home-ware department was just not striking enough for us, but never mind.

What did you guys do on Boxing Day? We’re you daft enough to be up the same time as us?! Such fun 🙂

Boxing Day Madness!

Sale shopping is tiring, and you can guarantee your never first in the queue. Which is why Kelly and I had a very early night on Xmas Day! We had already booked our taxi, in advance, for 5am on Boxing Day. We were heading off to the Next sale.

We arrived at the Next 6am Boxing Day sale at 5.05am, the queue was already three shops long. Hordes of people were gathering and before long the queue was passed Queen Street Arcade! Kelly and I were unlucky to be stood in front of some chain smoking individual – beurgh, the smell chokes me every time! And you do know that ‘Smoking Kills’ right? Anyways, before long we had been handed our sale bags from the stewards. Kelly and I were within the first set of people allowed in to rampage the store of its bargains. We did well, and only spent a total of £160.00. Unfortunately there was no Next tea towels or anything for our home, which was a real shame.

On a plus side though, Kelly and I kitted ourselves out with jeans, cardigans, perfumes, socks, underwear and tops, oh and some more pyjamas. We did very well indeed. Next stop was McDonalds for a breakfast meal, followed by home for a bath and try on of our clothes, before heading to the Asda sale for 9am.
