The Sales

 Love it or Loathe it?

I've always loved clothes and I have always loved a bargain..but clothes shopping in the January Sales just give me a headache.

We went shopping yesterday and thankfully it was empty...no crazy women hogging clothes racks!!

I had a quick look at the Jeans in River Island (something I'm always in need of) and was disgusted by the amount of pairs had HUGE rips in the legs. Some tops had stains and dust marks all over...not great right?!

In Zara clothes were all over the floor..in big mounds of mess and trampled upon..I took one look and walked out. Surely if it was all organised they'd have more sales.

Whsmith was great and my mum ended up buying a cookery book with lots of lovely things I hope to make this year : )

We later ended up at a garden centre where I managed to buy some pretty candle holders at a great price...that's more like it!

Have you done any January Sales Shopping? Do you love it or loathe it? Get any bargains?

  1. It would really depend on what mood I am in. I do generally like to shop but I find that I am getting less and less patient when it comes to mess and crowds! I hope you have a wonderful 2011 Gem, may all of your dreams come true. xx

  2. We took one look at John Lewis.....and went home!

  3. I don't like the sales after the holidays...I usually have a gift card or two to use and I think it might go farther if I use it now as opposed to later but I go in and just hate it! Everything is so picked over. Yucky, yuck, yuck. Happy new year girl!

  4. I usually love the sales, this year I just can't get into them. I haven't got the patience and really can't face fighting amongst the crowds and spending hours of my time standing in the queues.
    Your braver then I am. I'm glad you managed to get something nice for yourself. xxx

  5. I totally know what you mean! I went shopping on the 27th of December and is was crazy. I honestly left after about 40 minutes because it was too much effort. I think the sales stick around until the end of Jan so I guess I just have to wait. I hope you had a great New Year!
