Making the most of voucher codes websites

April 1, 2015

Over the weekend I took Roo and Tigger into the city to see Milkshake Live! at the Theatre Royal. Whilst we were in the city I decided it was a great excuse to partake in a spot of window shopping – who doesn’t love a spot of window shopping?

As we made our way into familiar stores there wasn’t anything in particular that caught my eye, however as we walked down the main street heading to the mall we walked past River Island. A store I will admit to hardly ever going into, no particular reason really other than I guess I think of them as young and hip – both of which I am not. Anyway as we walked past I caught a glimpse of their shoe display (I’m a sucker for shoes).

Making our way into the store I decided to see if I could pick up a pair of summer sandals and found a couple of pairs that caught my eye before seeing that they had a selection of children’s shoes available too – I didn’t even realise that they did children’s shoes! I came across a couple of pairs that I liked for the children for summer however as it was a Saturday the store was busy and there was a bit of a wait for an assistant to help us with sizes so I decided to leave it and have a look when I got home.

Making the most of voucher codes websites

I’m not the only parent in the world who wants to treat their children to new things, however in order to do this I do like to make sure I’m getting a good deal. Shopping through voucher code websites like Fashion Beans whenever I am buying new clothes, shoes or accessories allows me to check for the latest offers and discounts for whichever store I am looking to purchase from.

Heading over to River Island to see if I could find the sandals that I’d liked in store I actually managed to find a different pair which I like much more. The peach leather-look bow trim sandals are a classic sandal and will hopefully look good with whatever I wear this summer, plus with my 20% saving I was a happy girl  – thank you Fashion Beans (so pleased I didn’t buy the other ones in store).

Since I’d managed to save some money on getting myself a pair of summer sandals I decided to treat Roo and Tigger to the pairs we had seen in store. Both the girls pink footbed sandals and the boys blue double strap sandals are limited edition so I was pleasantly pleased to find I could get them in the sizes I needed.

Now to head over to see what ASOS voucher codes they have as Mr Boo ahas seen a new backpack for work that he wants

Do you use voucher codes websites to make your money go further?

    Such a good idea, I wish this sort of thing existed in France.

  • Sharon Donnelly April 1, 2015 at 3:01 pm

    I always forget about voucher codes! I must remember them next time. I love those boys sandals with stars on – Noah had some shorts last year with that pattern from Next and I really want to get them again.

  • Hannah Staveley April 1, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    I use so many codes from the web and think they are so good.

  • Mari April 1, 2015 at 6:51 pm

    What a great idea, I really must bookmark the links so I can use them too, I need sandals for the girls and a backpack for husband too.

  • angela hamilton April 1, 2015 at 7:14 pm

    I love discounts and I have found myself looking at voucher sites more and more now

  • Louisa April 1, 2015 at 8:41 pm

    I’ve never used voucher codes for clothes before but will check them out, it’s expensive kitting out the kids!

  • lisa prince April 2, 2015 at 9:59 am

    i do try to use as many as i could but sometimes they aint as available as you would hope for until its too late

  • Michelle April 2, 2015 at 12:15 pm

    I don’t think I shop online without searching out a voucher code, cashback deal or discount first! Every penny helps after all 😀

  • VaiChin April 2, 2015 at 4:51 pm

    I am loving those sandals. Even better at 20% off.

  • Kara April 3, 2015 at 6:37 am

    I have to admit I get really frustrated by voucher code sites – never seem to have what I am looking for

  • Clare Nicholas April 3, 2015 at 6:46 am

    I love the boys sandals, Harry may have to have those.
    I took advantage of BOGOF on the la redoute website yesterday to get paul new jeans and jumpers for his birthday

  • Stephen - BeautykingUK April 3, 2015 at 5:19 pm

    I really should use voucher code sites more often, they can save a fortune. I’m off to check out River Island to see if there is anything I can pick up with the code. Stephen :o)

  • Rachel April 3, 2015 at 5:29 pm

    I am totally helpless at remember to use voucher code sites, even with email reminders most days x

  • Emma April 4, 2015 at 7:58 pm
