    Last thing you bought? 28th Mar 11 at 3:58 PM
    I swear there was a thread on this but I can't find it.

    Anyway, what was the last thing you bought? (it can be anything...no matter how small. ).

    I'm not feeling very well today so after my hospital appointment OH and I went into town and I bought a cropped denim jacket. I used to have one but I lost it in a GP surgery somewhere.

    So, how about you?

    The “list price” was over £19 so we were pleased with that

    I bought avocado, cucumber, cider and sparkling water at the shop. It's really warm out there.

    I might look online to buy another new dress as I liked the ASOS one I ordered this week.

    Just ordered some Clinique skin care from their own website.

    10% off, free postage and a good haul of free goodies !

    Some of the offers on the website are better than the usual in store 'bonus time' offers.

    Took my 3 year old granddaughter to a large toy shop today (Smyths) for a treat as she's been a good girl..she's never seen so many toys in one place and would've had the lot if she could..lol

    She settled on a new doll and a pair of binoculars..oh and a tub of green slime..

    Not much change from £50

    Oh, and did a Tesco shop too.

    Premium Bonds this morning. Got one of the prepaid cards from new broadband provider after switching to them and was pleasantly surprised that NS&I let me use the card. Fed up checking the balance on these prepaid things and would have frittered the money away otherwise, so decided a wee flutter every month is better than buying e.g. lottery tickets.
