    I couldn't bring myself to leave the house on Boxing Day for sales :p:

    Got some boots in the online Topshop sale and might go for a mooch there in a few days. Also on the list are Miss Selfridge, French Connection and maybe All Saints. There's nothing I need, I just like to look and have eyegasms over pretty things.

    Might also go to the garden centre. DON'T HATE, got two wicker baskets for like £1 each down from £15 each this summer

    Got around £440 in total Christmas money, not sure what to buy with it just yet. May use it to clear some of my overdraft, however I have the next 3 years to do that. So may use it to treat myself.

    You have to be quick- VAT will increase to 20 per cent on 4 January 2011, so don't expect to make many savings.
    Oh no, its going up by 2.5%? HOLY COW I WILL HAVE ZERO MONEY!

    Have you actually done the maths to work out in reality how much more expensive this will make things than when VAT was at 17.5%?

    Barely anything unless you're spending thousands which I'm pretty certain you aren't, and definitely not enough to prevent a teenager from buying a hoody

    Yes - cheers:-

    "I know lets go to uni and make an acedemia out of life which is essentially survival, getting by and aquiring what you want..

    Oh ****, there's a platitude of people doing that already, and I have no experience in real life"

    This I dub, the student falacy.
    that comment would gain a lot more support and attention if this wasn't a student forum

    That's a coincidence, because I don't like you.

    I'm sorry guys just a quick question. Does everything go on sale on Boxing Day? And do these sales go online too? Thing is I'm back home for holidays (abroad) and want to order stuff online to be delivered to my cousin in manchester. Will I miss the best sales cuz they dont go online?

    All the websites I see have the same sales from like a couple weeks ago, nothing new today?
