The changing season presents the opportunity to go shopping! Department stores and High Street shops bring in their new clobber and wares, creating an exciting buzz around new styles and trends.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll be wishing you went on a strict diet months ago when the shorts and t-shirt weather arrives and you discover you’re a dress size up on last year!
So for now I’m settling for new décor – colourful shades that reflect the lovely weather – I’m buying up bunting, outdoor furniture and candles and lanterns – I just hope I’m not being too premature in wishing for sunshine!
So let’s have a look at what some bloggers and vloggers have been buying recently…
Shop my spring style…
Kicking off with the clobber, Katy from Katykicker bagged an £85 toddler clothing haul from George at Asda for her little girl.
Among the goodies she picked up were a few tracksuit bottoms, a slogan jumper, a rabbit hoodie for £9 and a three-piece dungaree set for £14.
Primark is always a great place to shop for kids (as they just grow so quickly), but Kerry (from Kerry Louise Norris) went one better and snapped up a Disney haul from Primark, no doubt saving herself a few extra quid on the branded merchandise.
Highlights of her purchase included a six-piece ‘Beauty and The Beast’ pin set for £3, a ‘Chip Bubbles’ mug for £5, a ‘Mickey’ t-shirt for £8 and an Aladdin pyjama set – £6 for the top and £8 for the bottoms.
Someone else who was being money savvy was Collette from Truly Madly Cuckoo, who went shopping at a charity shop.
Collette ended up buying brand new M&S boots for her daughter for just £5, a Boden top for £3, a faux fur gilet for £3, a girl’s party dress from NEXT for £5 and a NEXT unicorn top for £3.
Time to eat!
Moving on to food hauls, Katy from Katykicker spent £80 in total on an Aldi & Sainsbury’s grocery haul – but this time it was shopping with allergies in mind.
She bought plenty of fruit and veg and is making a real effort to reduce packaging waste. Her daughter, Daisy, is allergic to a few things including dairy, soya, gluten and coconut, so Katy managed to pick up the products she needed for her diet.
And when it comes to meal planning, Leah from Home Family Life has got it in the bag – and shows us what she bought at Asda for a family meal plan.
Also buying for the family was Georgina from Gee Gardner, who got an ASDA Grocery Haul for her family of four.
And Chantele was also thinking ahead when she bought a Tesco haul to prepare for two weeks of crockpot freezer meals.
