I heard some shops(DJ's maybe?) opened at 5am. It's freaking CRAZY that people can't go without shops for 24 hours and need to get up so early(And expect shop assistants to be up even earlier) to get a 'bargain'.

If anyone likes Valleygirl clothing, I got two very cute dresses there for $15 each. There were also nice tops going for around $10 each as well, but I decided that I have too many clothes and probably wouldn't wear them before the colours went out of style.

I saw a great bargain in the Myer ad in the paper today.  I recently bought the Esteele cookset at 40% thinking I grabbed a bargain - now it's 50% off.  It's fabulous and I'm serioulsy in love with it.  So if you need cookware - grab it!

Bought a new skirt at Country Road last week, and today its more than 50% off. Win some, lose some I guess. At least I got to wear it for Christmas day.

DJs had some good prices on cookware...

My husband and I went to George St in sydney today and it was crazy busy but a lot of fun. We didn't bother with djs and myer. I bought some work clothes from Veronika Maine and David Lawrence. I also bought a couple of pairs of new work shoes. All at bargain prices.

Carousel in Cannington was crazy this morning. Full car park and people lining up outside stores before they opened. Individual staff were great though, can't praise Myer enough for the way they managed queues and the many staff they had available.

Few good bargains to be had. Happy to NEVER go to the shops for another 12 months though.

DH and I found my favourite chocolate treats marked down to half price in KMart.

I might have bought 5 bags as they are only available at Christmas and I can't have them due to gestational diabetes.

I packed one lot in my hospital bag  blush.gif
