I think we’re all feeling the pinch just that bit more this year and with specials being extended over the week or even month to avoid the crazy rush there seems to be less hype about BF this year. Let’s just say a crowd of people breaking down the entrance to a store has taken on a whole new meaning in a post July Riots South Africa. And don’t get me wrong I think it’s a good thing. Rampant consumerism is a horrible disease and initiatives like “Buy Nothing Day” help raise awareness and get us to think first before following our impulses.
That said, it can still be a good time to find some deals, especially if you’ve got something on your wishlist that you’ve been waiting to be discounted. So share the love and the deals. Tell us what you got or give us a heads-up on a sweet deal.
I am looking for a tablet for the kids and missus to keep them entertained. I almost got a Switch Lite but I feel the limited multiplayer is not worth it. Rather get the full one so we can share the fun.
I bought an XBOX Series S for the office… One of those bundle deals with an extra controller. I’ll be setting it up at home with Game Pass and buy and erect a little Christmas tree at the office over the weekend for some yuletide cheer on Monday morning.
Sadly my expenditure doesn’t really allow me to make purchases on such large amounts, despite really wanting some of these deal. I will have to wait until bonus time to make these purchases and what will likely be normal retail price. And I refuse to buy these things on credit.
We just bought a crapload of nappies using eBucks. Something like 10 boxes from the eBucks store. This is what my life has come to… instead of buying TVs, gaming consoles and nice-to-have electronics, I’m buying nappies with eBucks.
Almost bought a robot vacuum (I’ll need two for the new house), but then decided I first need to research the stuff a bit more and we’ll only be able to use it in about 7 months from now… so I passed on it for now.
Agreed. I’m SO glad we’re past that stage now. Our son started potty training quite late (around 2 years, 8 months), but once he started it was like a day and he only urinated in a toilet. Not even a training potty, a toilet. The number 2 took another 3 months, but one Sunday afternoon I convinced him to sit on his racing car potty and since then he was fully trained. He hasn’t even wet the bed once since getting off nappies.
That’s great. We’re getting a new au pair next week and hopefully she can assist with the potty training… however, we’ve got the new baby that has just moved to size 3 now so no nappies will go to waste
