    Amazon Bargains Thread - please post finds here 15th Nov 14 at 8:55 AM
    I've just been looking around the forums for an Amazon thread and I could only find one for Toys and Games so I thought it would be nice to have one for everything else here.

    @Ms_Bertha, can I ask you a couple of questions, being as you have the boots? Firstly, can the insoles of these be removed? Secondly, are they a snug fit or is there plenty of room inside the foot area (only asking as I have low arches on my feet and have to wear specially-made orthotic insoles which won't fit in normal everyday shoes as the sides aren't deep enough - I usually have to wear trainers)

    TIA

I went for a size up so that I can wear big thick socks but this was more for length as the boots are fairly roomy and can just be laced as tight as required. They feel bouncy like trainers. Amazon are offering free returns, so worth a try to see if they are suitable?

    Thanks for posting. Mine have just arrived, I'm a size 5 but ordered a 6, mainly for room, although the free postage was a bonus. I've found the sizing isn't that big, once I've got socks on they'll fit just right. They're very nice boots and will be ideal for winter dog walks.

    Fingertip Pulse Oximeter £11
    Heads-up. I bought a similar oximeter about a year ago but our puppy found it yesterday morning oO They usually go around £20.
    I was looking for the same one but found this one is with a good price. As a parent of an asthmatic child I found it as a real helper because my son doesn't display a classic wheezy, the oximeter gives me a better idea as to when he is deteriorating and needs medical intervention. For the money the peace of mind it provides is well worth it.

    To get the oximeter for the £12 you have to click on the Promotion Message saying "get 20% off".
    To get the postage to £1.99 opt for the "One-Day Amazon Locker Pickup get it tomorrow".

    Bulk buy toiletries from Amazon.
    This works well when you've earned Amazon vouchers, (IE with the survey sites, etc...) I just recently started doing this and have noticed a massive decrease in my weekly/monthly shopping bill. This has more than likely saved me a few quid here and there considering how much the mainstream supermarkets have priced up the products.

    Some of these 'MIGHT' not be the best money savers, but most definitely better than buying from the shops.

    So here we go;

    Regina Wish Kitchen Towels, 12 rolls in total (2 x 6 packs) - £12
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B073ZDGXRS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    We spend £1.60 on one big roll from Asda (each week).

    Average saving is £7.20 for us.

    Kleenex Balsam Tissues (12 boxes) - £12
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06XSXR6GN/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Spent £3.50 per week

    Average saving of £30 per month if we were to buy individually.

    Freedom Inspirations White 3Ply Quilted Toilet Tissue Pack of 45 rolls.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00SNAXMDG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    This is the BEST buy I can truly find! We were buying 9 rolls for £5 every 2 weeks. (maybe 1.5 weeks!)

    For £13.99 for 45 ROLLS! (0.31p/roll) I cannot find anything cheaper than this, it's good quality too, you don't put your fingers through it when you wipe either.



    Ariel 3-in-1 Pods Original Washing Capsules - Pack of 3 (114 Washes)

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B074FQHKQJ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1

    £18.

    We save on a lot here, considering she buys only 78 washes for £14. for an extra £4, she is getting almost double.

    Considering we buy 38 washes at Asda for £7 every 3 months. We will have a lot more spare, and won't have to buy any for around 6 months.

    I used to spend around £80 a month on just these products a month - getting consistently annoyed that it racks up my shopping bill. These might not be the BEST deals out there but most definitely have saved me a ton of money, my wife get's a bit annoyed with me having our spare room as our 'bulk buy room' But who cares! It's money saving at it's fullest potential!
    1/12/16 - £152,599.00
    11/11/17 - £145,990.00
    Two Credit agreements to pay off - £13653! (inc interest).
    Sofa (DFS) (0%)£923/£923 - Paid off 7th November!
    Barclays Boiler (18.9%!)£400/£3021.36
    Barclays Car (5.99%)£0/£8,832.37
