I know I know its early, but I know some of ye are just as on the ball as I am, so I htought i’d start a thread on bargains people might have seen, to make this year (what with the credit crunch blah blah) a bit easier on us all.
Ill start, Heatons yesterday, loadsa DVD’s (cars, chicken little, toy story 1 and 2, monster inc) €10 each.
Books (peter pan, monster inc, aladin) 4 for €5.
PS2 games for €6-€8 (old ones but if your kids are anything like my 7yo they wont care, a game is a game )
Choice has a new homeware store up there to, and there was fab spongebob toys, spidermen, girls dressing up stuff all for under €20.

Ha ha! Mad that this is starting so early!!
I have a few presents got already – need to be on the ball this year! Smyths have some good reductions at the moment too – I got a Diego Set for my nephew, €25 down to €15…
Yummy, thats great to know about the Heatons DVD’s, will definitely pick up a couple of them this week, E loves her films now!
Also, last weekend in Newry, the toystore was giving euro for pound – think it will be running for a while too..
Watch out for the Solomons warehouse sale – Yankee Candles down to €8!!July 31, 2008 at 1:44 pm #64445

i used them last year for my boys and the quality of their stuff is very good.July 31, 2008 at 2:49 pm #64447
Taylor, every so often the have a clear out sale – their warehouse is up by McCabes Garden Depot – they usually have an ad in the Leader when it is on.July 31, 2008 at 3:09 pm #64448AnonymousInactive
What are we like, but it takes the women to get everything organised. Last year for all of the nieces/nephews we agreed on a €15 Smyths Vouncher for all the kids. Went down really great, because all of my nieces for DS’s for Xmas.
My DH will kill me if i arrive home with any more Yankee, need to the thru the years supply i have first.
What to get the boys for xmas will be my biggest concern. They are big into football but i dont know if the are too young for the Football table thing. I know D would be happy with a footballer kit.
Get my holiday over with and school starting and then think about xmasJuly 31, 2008 at 6:31 pm #64450pinkbabeMember
