Win a Fijit Friend with Argos and A Thrifty Mum

I have a fab giveaway for you on behalf of Argos.  Now as you may know I have two boys, so have no experience of a Fidgit Friend, but the lovely (Mostly) Yummy Mummy, who is a long time twitter friend actually reviewed one last year and has a great post all about them and what they do.

I find that blog competitions are a great way of getting toys for the boys for Christmas and birthdays and am hoping to find many ore ways to get toys frugally when I read through y comments after this competition.

A Fijit Friend is your new interactive best friend. Watch as she chats with you using over 150 phrases and dances to music with her hilariously fidgety body! Great for hours of entertainment and best friend fun!

This prize has been supplied courtesy of Argos. Argos stocks a huge range of nursery toys and baby equipment from cot beds and nursery furniture, to a wide range of pushchairs, including the three wheel baby jogger, and other many quality brands. …. If its great toys you’re looking for, make a start by entering our competition below!

  1. My money saving tip for toys is to look all year round and buy when offers are on and in the sales never buy near to Christmas.

  2. Buy toys second hand - children play with them for such a short time that they are as good as new when they get bored of them.

  3. Well I have learned the hard way! - I 'was' a shopaholic and i realised that it was me who was more interested in the toys than my daughter! I now always read reviews on the toys before I buy them and I try to use Tesco vouchers where possible and also check on eBay, amazon and google shopping x

  4. I look in the big shops for things I like then I check ebay and gumtree for them nearly new - we have an entire wardrobe of danish designer clothes, joules, hatley etc all for way under a tenner each! stylish and affordable! I also shop at Jack and Jill markets whenever there is one and stock up for birthday pressies!

  5. Always google for the best prices and sales

  6. My tip is to shop around. Find what you want and run a price comparison - you can almost always find it cheaper. If you buy on eBay and amazon you can earn nectar points too - a great way of saving for xmas

  7. I have a shop savvy app on my phone. I can see a toy, scan the barcode and the app tells me where its cheapest both locally and also on online.

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
