January eh? The cold and windy weather, the ‘back to the routine’ of everyday life, the Sunday blues …not much to be excited about is there?
Or is there? What about the sales shopping? No, I’m not talking about the pushing and the shoving for the Next sale at crazy o’clock in the morning.
Instead, I prefer the comfort of my home surroundings, staying warm and clicking on a few buttons to do a bit of online shopping.
So what better way to exercise my finger on that mouse by browsing the virtual aisles of DotComGiftShop? I’m always swooning over their goods, so now I have a great excuse to get a little click happy.
And would you Adam and Eve it…with all the goods in my basket it came to a grand total of £40.72. I had managed to save an incredible £142.08! To put this into context that’s an amazing 77% on the items I chose!
So, er….anyone on a strict budget who wants me as their personal interior design shopper just whiz me over an email 😉
