Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping. – Bo Derek
So how’s the hunt going for that outfit for the kids for the summer wedding/party/family dinner out? I know, it’s a nightmare isn’t it?
If you’re like me, the kids get one ‘good’ outfit; it sees them through anything that requires more than their usual daily diet of shorts and tees at this time of year. The daughter gets one swishy fancy frock, and the boys get a decent summer shirt and smart trousers.
But I still resent paying as much for a smart kids outfit as I do for a full grown-ups version; so keeping an eye out for a sales bargain is definitely the way to go. We had our silver wedding anniversary last year, and though we hired dinner jackets for the boys I needed something really nice and ‘evening-y’ for my daughter. But an hour or so’s web-searching, and hooray; a beautiful £70 John Rocha dress was snapped up for £18.
But recently, I don’t spend hours on the searching. Oh no. I was told about LoveTheSales. Have you seen them yet?
Take Ted Baker for instance – my style-conscious teen boys are always happy with a Ted Baker item, but at £89 a shirt they can usually dream on!
However, when an £85 shirt is reduced to £22? I’m in.
(you can find this particular Ted Baker bargain pink shirt here)
Or maybe you rather like this fabulous pale pink tulle skirt? Not for my daughter at the full £32 price tag, but at £16 I’ll take it, thanks!
The best thing is you don’t need to do the hunting through your favourite stores, nor do you need to plod through google to find the places you don’t yet know about. Oh no. Tell LoveTheSale what you want, and it’ll show you the bargains. Search on there for ‘Ted Baker‘ for example and over 400 retailers have been scanned for bargains for you. Even my dedicated bargain-hunting fingers gives up after about 20 shops! Then you just break it down to mens/womens/kids, or maybe grooming or electricals.
