I’ve previously written about using cashback sites and sales throughout the year to get organised for peoples birthdays and Christmas. It not only makes it far less stressful in November and December but also saves me money. I’ve been looking at the January Sale at The Works for some gifts. I’ve found some fab bargains and discovered they have their own loyalty card where you get 5 points for every £1 spent as well as 50 points just for joining.

The works floor puzzle

Farmyard floor puzzle, £3, helps to develop hand-eye coordination and encourages children to understand the basic elements of problem solving. Perfect for a stocking filler for Lucas next Christmas.

Salter NutriTwist, £20, blend delicious smoothies, soups and sauces with this and it can be used both as a stick blender and personal blender. Love this for my brothers house warming present.

Lucas really enjoys painting and crafty activities at nursery so I really want to do more of these activities at home with him. This big bag of Christmas crafts, £3 could be used throughout the year on various projects. It contains 1 bag of assorted pom-poms, 6x A4 sheets of corrugated card, 50x assorted pipe cleaners, 1 bag of EVA shapes, 4x cards, 4x envelopes, 4x A5 EVA sheets, 4x glitter glues, 1 bag of googly eyes, 1 bag of sequins, 6x A4 assorted papers, 10x tissue papers, crepe papers, 3x strings, 48x lolly sticks and 1 glue.

D and I want to start meal planning and we tend to stick to the same meals so this cooking on a budget book, £1.50, would be good for us to find new meals. The book includes 100-plus recipes for delicious, healthy, cheap meals, as well as suggestions for setting your budget, planning your shop and essential store-cupboard ingredients.

I never pay full price for wrapping paper, it is so easy to storethat you may as well buy it in the sales each year. I love this premium gold Christmas wrap set, £1.50 for the adults presents.

    This is great! I love The Works and buy a lot of our craft items from there and we did an advent book calendar for Sophie using their fab Xmas books! Will be looking into getting a loyalty card 🙂

    Some fab things you can pick up in the January sales at this stage and a brilliant time of year to get some Christmas stock ready for 2017!

    I do love a good bargain. But find January a bit of a tight month, with after Christmas bills to pay and the first birthday of the year just around the corner. So finding an extra good bargain is always something to make me smile.

    Cashback sites especially can really help you save. I like the toys idea as that’ll be perfect for my niece 🙂
