  • This is why I shouldn't have a credit card!

    I know Christmas was only a few days ago ..... BUT it is my birthday coming soon and I couldn't resist buying this for myself.

    Well, there is 70% off !!

    I shall just have to hide the bank statement ! Do you think he'll believe me if I tell him I got it in a charity shop???!!!!

        God no JBJB tell him the truth but obviously start with how much it originally was...that's an amazing bargain you've got there, word it carefully and he'll start believing you've actually saved him ninety quid rather than spent thirty-odd.

          Such a Bargain....

          ...it would have been so wrong NOT to buy it...I think you did well there, and Mr JB should be pleased you only spent £37...and, of course, you do need to look smart when calling at posh shops to meet their buyers! It's a work expense really.

          My SiL went to TKMaxx and bought a £650 blouse for £15....I've not seen this miracle buy but apparently it's very 'Victoria Beckham' whatever that means...so you can guarantee it's not my thing!

          Well done you!

              Great bargain and lovely coat!!

              I'm at that age where I could not get away with wearing something like that, but it is beautiful!! You are going to have to show us a picture with you wearing it please!!!!

                Ooooooohh!!! Gorgeous coat and I love Boden. I haven't looked at any of the sale things because Mr Swirl is taking me away somewhere for my 30th at the end of January and apparently there will be some shopping involved!!!!! There is apparently a large vintage area with lots of shops (that's just up my street!) but I have no idea where we are going cos it's a secret!! He's going to tell me on my birthday which is the day before we fly but I've made him look up charity/thrift shops where we are going!
                I've also avoided looking at the Cath Kidston catalogue that came through this morning!

                  JBJB,

                  Fantastic coat. Fantastic bargain. The shopping gods were looking down on you with this one (No guilty feelings with that saving)

                  Now what was that site again ????

                  Cheers Janice

                      I'm going here on Tuesday to see what buttons and fabric stuff they've got. I've been meaning to go for ages, but it's been too frantic until now. Can't wait to see what sort of stuff they've got

                        I think that coat is perfect for you ! And after all you have to have some reward for all that hard work pre-christmas
