As much as I love the physical activity of shopping, I find that these days I do it less and less. There are many reasons for this. The first is that I work from home during the week, and find it a little bit naughty to just take off on a shopping trip when I’m meant to be working. The second reason is, come the weekend, we do a lot of family activities, and my little boy Joe is most definitely shopping-phobic, so we tend to avoid shopping centres in the main and any shop that isn’t a sports or toy shop in general.
Shopping in my past
So this means that I do tend to do a lot of my shopping online. And although this does mean I get to miss out on the general rush of physically walking around my favourite stores (because filling an online basket is not the same), it does mean I can use sites like VoucherBin to make the best possible savings, and find out about any new sales and promotions. (Click to find out more about their latest offers.)
My shopping is currently all focused on my upcoming summer holiday, which is now less that 2 months away. I am quite frugal when it comes to holiday shopping, tending to shop for certain items rather than a whole wardrobe. I get at least one new swimsuit (not a bikini girl I’m afraid), sandals for evening wear and flip flops for around the pool, a great beach bag, and a couple of dresses for sightseeing and evening wear. Everything else I find in my wardrobe.
For this holiday I have found some discount offers for one of my favourite stores, Wallis, with up to 60% off sales, free delivery on orders over £50 and also some pieces that are currently under £20.
Here are some of the picks that I hope will be winging their way into my holiday suitcase very soon.
