A huge massive thank you!

I've been lurking in the background for the last couple of weeks and I thought it might be nice for all of you who so kindly share your amazing deals to get some positive feedback. :)

You have made christmas possible for me and I can't thank you enough.

I've been a bit nervous about posting and I don't want to give anyone a sob story but I thought it would be cool for people on here to know what a difference they have made to some people's lifes so here goes;

I've worked all my adult life until I was told in 2007 that I had some endocrinological problems including a brain (pituitary) tumor. Since then I've struggled to work and keep afloat financially. Against all odds, in 2010, I managed to have a beautiful baby girl.

The last year has been pretty tough and I felt a little heartbroken that I wouldn't be able to give my baby daughter the christmas she deserved but I chanced upon this website and the grabbit forum. It has made my money (and believe me there wasn't much) go further than I could have ever imagined and my little girl and family have some really lovely presents. Even a couple of little treats for me! I've also used the other boards to make brilliant savings on my food shopping.

I feel like I can look forward to my future now without constantly worrying about making ends meet.

I'll be a moneysaver for life now!!! :T:heart2:

So a massive thank you from the bottom of my heart and I wish you all a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!!:xmassmile

    Nice one OP - have a lovely Christmas.
    Also - I want to say a massive thanks to all the posters who have posted deals on here! Sometimes I have forgotten to thank them - (It's sometimes when I'm on a different PC or my mobile and I can't remember my log-in password!). There's some amazing things that have been posted this year!

    Meeerry Xmas!

    I do love a happy ending. My thanks also go out to the fantastic bargain hunters of this site. I'm fairly thrifty when it comes to non-essentials, and you save so much time and money you all deserve a knighthood.
