Bargain hunting

I hope you had a lovely Christmas. We were up early this morning as usual (the puppy doesn't have any concept of the phrase 'lie-in') and I decided it was a good opportunity to hit the sales. No, I don't mean rushing to the High Street to trudge my way at a snail's pace along behind thousands of other shoppers (this is not my idea of fun). I mean online.

My absolute top tip for sale shopping – particularly in the current climate – is to only buy things you know to be useful, and hopefully believe to be beautiful. Some of the best sales are at M&S , Mothercare , John Lewis and Laura Ashley– they have up to 50% off -and Debenhams have up to 70% off. Plus you get money back for your kids if you shop through KidStart. To see a full list of the best sales and how much you could get back for your kids, click here.

Happy shopping!
