Once a year we set off for our nearest Asda because Lovely Hubby loves George!!
The 'George' clothes label that is, for anyone unfamiliar with Asda's own brand label in clothing. We always do it at this time of year while he is off and everyone else is out there grabbing sale bargains, although most of what we get is stuff not actually in the sales.
It never costs much to kit out my man, see last years post HERE, but this year it was even cheaper. The suit he bought last year has worn so well he didn't need to replace it this year, so the haul was merely undies, socks, t shirts and shirts and that's it his entire shopping done for the year for the princely sum of £96. He's already sorted through his wardrobes and drawers and got rid of all tatty stuff, now washed and dried it will go in the charity bin to make up rag weight, a couple of t shirts were good enough to pop in the car boot sale box ready for Spring, and now he's set for the year ahead.
I did splash out too and bought myself an A4 diary ready for the brand new year that is fast creeping up on us, and I will spend some of tomorrow filling in those pages that always need information adding, something I enjoy doing with a brand new Biro that will live with the diary. I treat a diary a bit like my Blog, with recipes written down, things stuck in, photos, tickets etc and anything that I need to remember or look forward to jotted down in plenty of time.
And that's it - our shopping done, there is nothing else either of us need, I wonder when we will be back at the shops again, maybe I should make a note in my diary or on here of every shop free day we manage.
How are your preparations and plans going for the New Year?
