What do you consider to be your best Christmas bargain this year.

Mine is definitely the dollhouse we got for DD. We have one very happy little girl here this morning.

It was a $70 dollhouse bought 2nd hand but never played with. It was bought off ebay and came with all the extras, dolls furniture etc etc

They lady who sold it to us thought she was having a baby girl and has ended up with 2 sons, so she decided to sell it on ebay (pick up only) and she happened to live no more then 15 minutes away.

So happy with this bargain.

That house is pretty good!
I got my 2yr old DD this one...

And all the furniture to go with it. Saved a TON by buying online, compared to instore. She doesn't like pink so it was very difficult getting a house without too much pink on it.

Her dinosaurs are living in it, not the Aldi dolls I got to go with it lol.

Dh returned a graphics card that was broken. He couldn't wait to get it replaced so bought another one. The other graphics card came a few weeks ago so we decided to give it to DS

DS is stoked !!! And we didn't have to buy much else as its worth a pretty penny. DS appreciates to value and was happy with few presents.

Bonus !

What a bargain!

Mine would be the cash register I got for dear niece for only $10, which had been reduced twice. Works well and she loves it.

My bargains I got were buying bonds clothes for my baby nephew in their half price facebook sale and shopping online to get the best price on everything.

My huge bargains though were at the craft store. I got in there the day they marked down all their Christmas stock. Got some awesome things to make gift tags this year and quite a few craft kits to put away for next year original.gif

Mine would be the Black Cat slippers I found for DD at Myer the other night.. orginal sale price $19.00 reduced to $12.00 then marked at 50% of lowest reduced price so $6.00 and I swear they have barely left her feet all day. The other was a mecahnical Robot grabbing arm that DS2 has seen and loved for ages at Big W..... It cost all of $1.00 and has been a huge hit

I always get some good bargains but the most recent one that I thought was good was a Lego Hero Factory Speeda Demon advertised online at Big W for $35 when the normal price is $48. It was for online only purchases but that would have included $8 postage and that wasn't much of a discount, so I went to my local Big W and got them to price match it for me. DS1 was so happy when he got that today because he had been nagging me for a Bionicle for a long time and I helped him put it together. Worked out really well.

I was in a local op shop and found a lot of Cure posters which had been donated. One was signed by the entire band and DD loved it. $15 for the lot.

My best bargain was a treat for myself.. Was shopping in Myer and found a Leona Edmiston dress on the clearance rack. I ended up getting it for $25, marked down from the original $150.
