Free Stuff!!!
www.fabulousyarn.com

Free knitting patterns and almost all of them are for chunky/bulky weight yarn so are guaranteed to be a quick knit! It sends you to a checkout to download the patterns, but they're all free. You can then download the patterns via the website or they send you the download links via email, but you have to download them within 72 hours or they WILL EXPIRE. All in pdf format so make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

As you may know, I'm 13 weeks pregnant with my second child. Last week, I came across a cot mobile in a charity shop for £1! Put some batteries in it when I got home and it works perfectly. Then i discovered that the bits that hang off it detach and can be used as the baby gets older as teethers and rattles! Bonus!

I'll get the ball rolling again!
My fiance was in a bad money place a few weeks ago so he dug out a load of stuff and took it to a local boot sale with his friend and his girlfriend. Just as they were packing away, the friends girlfriend, Marie, heard the seller on the stall next to them declare that they were selling everything for 10p! She picked up just one item, a box containing LOADS of knitting needles and crochet hooks of varying sizes. She brought them back to my house and we sorted them into pairs and discovered there were 40 pairs of needles, plus 5 sets of dpn's and another 15 crochet hooks! Yes, she got the WHOLE LOT for 10p! She works in an elderly residential care home and a lot of the ladies knit there so after we'd taken our pick of the lot, she took the rest to them and I'm sure they thoroughly enjoyed them!

It's been a while... [MOD POST!]
Ok, ok, I'll admit, I've been slacking. But I do have excuses! Kinda!

Well a quick update [from a personal point], my main PC suddenly stopped working. It was hooked up to the TV and just decided to refuse to load past a certain point, but my dear fiance bought me the laptop I've been pining for for goodness knows how long so internet access resumed. Also within my busy schedule came some baby news, we're expecting our second child in December so we said HEY! Let's get married! So we booked our wedding which is in 3 weeks time!

So yeah, as you can see, busy busy busy all round really! BUT, I shall try to be keeping on top of things a little more from now on and will definitely be back with sending new member invites out so we can expand a little more - but don't expect too much until at least the middle of June once the wedding's out of the way!

Hope everyone else is doing ok, invite your friends as usual and hope to see some new entries again soon!

Bye for now!

Suit season
It's men's suit season at Primark...Newcastle Primark has a large selection of men's suit jackets ranging from £15-£25 and matching trousers from £6 -£10 including some nice cord jackets that are perfect for this year's suit jacket, light jumper and jeans look. I picked up 4 coordinating shirts, a tie and a very nice light jumper for my husband for £25 today. We will definately be going back on the weekend so he can try on jackets.

M&S has men's chinos for £9.50 in their men's wear sale too.

Apparently this is the time of year to kit out our fellows. ;-)

Oh and updated on yesterdays post from me, I found out I could have got a stand to go with the guitar for half price, so I asked them today if I could still get it and they said it was fine as long as I still had my receipt. Dug it out from the bottom of my bag and got a stand for £6!

I love Argos ^_^

I tried to learnt o play the guitar 3 years ago and my lovely fiance bought me an electro-acoustic guitar for my 20th birthday. Unfortunately, about a week later, I found out I was pregnant with my daughter so my guitar dreams were put on hold. With a growing child around, learning to play was difficult and I soon realised that a full-sized guitar was far too big for me to play!

Fast forward a few years and I'm wandering around town yesterday and what do I see?? A 3/4 sized ELECTRIC GUITAR OUTFIT with all accessories and amp included! Look at the price of that baby!!

I'm back on track now and moving on from the simple first few lines of Nothing Else Matters. Working on the main riff for smells like teen spirit now!

Hi. My name is Rachael and I'm a shopping addict. :)
This community is such a great idea...I very rarely pay full price for anything! I'm a total sucker for bargains and I especially love random sale rails!

2 x gold tone long pendant necklaces and two pairs of earrings from the Dorothy Perkins sale all £1 each

An amazing black real leather bomber jacket from the New Look sale for £25 (was £50)

Real leather black knee/thigh high slouch style boots from the Office sale for £19 (were £110!!!!)

Real leather Grey knee/thigh high slouch style boots from the Office sale for £19 (were £110!!!!)

Yay for sales! x

Introductory post
My name is Bunny and I love to shop. ;-)

I’m ‘older’, married, childless (by chance), housebound (which means I am online a lot) and a Geordie-American (according to my father in law.)

I do most of my shopping online and some of my LJ friends refer to me as the naughty shopping fairy since I frequently recommend things they might like to buy for whatever reason. Hmm…what else? I have managed to get out of doing these before now so I don’t have a clue.

This is a good place to get links to shopping sites of all sorts:

http://www.shopsafe.co.uk/

and the next bargain I am going for?
The 5 KILO (yep I said KILO!!!) yarn assortment from Yeoman Yarns for £20-£25
http://www.yeoman-yarns.co.uk/shop/customer/home.php?cat=10

I'll keep you posted on how that goes once the weather gets nice and dry since apparently moisture in the air can make yarn weigh more and if I am going to get a bargain I might as well make the most of it.

MOD POST!
Yay! Right, I have put a small blurb in the userinfo and would like to thank all who have joined so far. At some point, I shall be assigning one or two co-maintainers, but I shall let you all know when that happens or how to apply.

Basically, if you go shopping [like I know you like to do ;-)], here is the place where you can tell us all about your bargains!

For example, I was in a Cancer Research Charity shop yesterday and picked up a Dickes shoulder bag in almost brand new condition for £2!

Hope to see you all around soon!

Nadia
