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.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
