V's 2017 lists :)


i went crazy at christmas last year and spent a ridiculous amount of money so i'm going to make lists this year and stick to them! ��

DD's birthday is a week after christmas so things on her list will be split between christmas and birthday, i don't know what will be for what yet though - i split it up once i've got the full pile. i don't think she's going to have any 'big' presents this year, just little bits and bobs. both me and her dad have big, close extended families with step-relatives, and she also gets presents from my OH's family so she ends up with so many gifts!

What's a magnetic atlas? Sounds like something my son would like. Great list!

it's like a wooden atlas that hangs on the wall! and the countries are magnets. I was planning to get one by janod but ended up getting a different one because it was more my DD's favourite colours (she's really girly )

I've bought quite a few things already!

I got 3 build-a-bear dresses with shoes and accessories for £10 off ebay so that saves quite a bit! I don't mind that they're second hand, because it's not like bear clothes get dirty or over used really

I cashed out £38 in amazon vouchers from quidco and with that I got the map, a roald dahl joke book, and harry potter and the philosophers stone illustrated edition

then I used a £50 off £100 spend very code and got glitter blo pens, a sling bookcase, yeti spaghetti, face paints, and a leap start

last year I kept buying more and more things because they were 'bargains' but I'm determined to stick my list this year and only buy things that have money off if they're on the list!

I've got a spreadsheet and so far I've spent £72 and got £300 worth of stuff (due to sales and vouchers)

I keep adding things to my list my DD has said she wants 'a doll that eats noodles and poos them out' (why are kids so gross ) which I have figured out thanks to google is a baby alive doll. she also says she wants lelli kelly shoes, so I am going to have to seek out where they are cheapest

need to speak to FOB though because we both do 'santa' and it's not fair for me to get every single thing she asks for and leave him nothing, or vice versa. he doesn't start buying until later though and last time I asked him he had no idea what he was going to get her, so it kinda ruins my plans if I have to wait for him

have deviated off my list again but I took a few things off to make up for it! in the last week I have got a beautiful silver unicorn bracelet for £12 and some stuff in the argos 3 for 2:

alphabet leapstart activity book
maths leapstart activity book
world atlas leapstart activity book
L.O.L doll
glimmies x 3
hair chalks
sticker maker

I used my nectar points and a £10 voucher which meant that I only had to pay £8 in real money

then I decided to get 3 enchantimals so I've ordered them from argos
