money saving 5 C

When you stumble across a reduction goldmine, it’s difficult to not get excited by all the bargains. But just remember the golden rule, do I really need it?

This is what I had to ask myself while in Asda yesterday. I had my eye on some shoes, which were reduced from £12 to £6. Whilst I was admiring them I overheard 2 staff members with hand scanners say “we’ll start with these make them all £2, and them move over to the other side and do the same”. I nearly couldn’t contain my excitement, I went and found my mum and told her what I had heard and we went off to do a bit of investigating. Whilst I was looking, the staff member (who was very nice) said “if there’s any you like, I’m reducing them now.” So I grabbed the pair I had my eye on and saved even more money. Here they are originally priced at £12 and I bagged them for just £2.

It may be the start of the next round of reduction for the George department of Asda, so it may be worth checking out your local store and seeing what bargains you can pick up.

Charity shops have been hit or miss for me this week. I found a few good items, but it’s been a while since I’ve hit the jackpot. I’m yet to top my 99p haul, but I’m always on the lookout for the next great bargain.

I always rave about charity shops, but what you should factor in is the price of items and remembering they are second hand. When you have shops such as Primark, who are consistently cheap and have good sales, sometimes is better to go new. But if you are doing charity shops, be selective and don’t get carried away.
