  • it's a bargin!

    bargin today..totally inadvertently too....needed new jeans to replace old Tesco Value jeans that were bought around 3-4 years ago, £3 each pair.

    Used for work, where I can get mucky, and sustain clothing damage...

    material just starting to get fragile..[posted about mooning to a class full of students some time ago]....bit bullet and went to seek more £3 Value jeans.....chose a pair [trouble getting right size, must be an awful lot of folk my size?]...then spotted a decent pair, at sale price...but no price tag...so chucked 'em in 't'trolley anyway...

    went through checkout.....young cashier delightedly informed me, they were £1.50!

    Now..if three quid jeans last 3 or 4 years, and these better quality jeans last longer, I am going to be in a pickle trying to beat that for value!


    As a civil servant, there is no ''dress code'' [if there is that is a figment of the popularist press's imagination].....however, many of my 'managers' are ex-military, and [size=5]they like to imagine there's a dress code...I disappoint them on a regular basis..

            Price of Cotton due to Rocket soon (as well as Rice, Pasta etc)

            (even though Kids clothes are excempt from VAT), The price of Cotton will shortly be increasing and these Cheap Danny Discount stores perhaps will be drying up as well as the (Primark, Sports World, George, Tesco, etc increasing their prices) as they wont get their goods cheap anymore to sell for next to nothing (May help those Unfortunate kids and the poor being used as cheap labour in the back Allies being paid 1p -10p a day- for making them). Then also they'll be out of jobs - A bit like putting £2.00 on a Euro Lottery No Win !!

            Hopes the Freezer doesn't pack in for you, but if its really cold (which this Winter will be), just stick it outside lol

            Getting me a 15 Tog Kingsize Duvet for the Winter £20.00 on Ebay/Dunelm (Laughs at the site of Debenhams selling Feather Kingsize Duvets for £130 50% £65 riduclous prices)

                Re: it's a bargin!

                I've bought clothes in the past from supermarkets, "cheap" clothes shops etc, and have always been disappointed at how they seem to shrink, fade or fall apart in the wash.

                Of course, I have bought primark stuff for my daughter, because they grow out of them soooo quickly, but tbh they are so poorly made, and once washed often look so rubbishy that she has had one wear out of them before they are binned - not great value!

                I am not a clothes snob at all; but if I can pick up a good quality item in the sale, I'd rather buy fewer good quality clothes, than have lots of rubbish.

                I've got some clothes I've had ten years, which I am still happy to wear; my hubbies Armani stretchy black jeans, which I bought before my daughter was born (and she's 10), and cost over £100 and seemed so expensive at the time, but they still look as good as new today, and are his favourite trousers, so get lots of wear - not bad value really when you consider how long they've lasted.
                If happy little bluebirds fly, beyond the rainbow, why, oh why can't I?
