They have sent me an email entitled "Offers on back to schoolwear"!!!
That is simply shocking. I hope you let them know why they're out of favour!
WHAT?!!? That is taking the mick! It gets earlier every year. What's next, buy now for Christmas?
Its crazy...Matalan has a huge sign by our place and BHS flyers went out with tonights news letter. CRAZY x
Simply wrong! Where do I sign to join the boycott?
More of a problem is that age 4-5 is sold out by the start of July.
...and the children will have grown out of them by October. I get fed up with seeing builder's backsides sticking out of too small trousers.
Guilty confession time:I bought my daughter's uniform for September last weekend! M&S had really lovely pinafores and I knew they would be sold out if I waited until the end of the holidays.
I always buy early too. If I wait there's always *** all left.
But on a brighter note it must be nearly time for the barclaycard advert!
The shoe shop advised me not to come any later than mid-August to get any choice in school shoes. She had outgrown them by October half-term (working out at £5/week).
This year, her feet hadn't grown since October, so she went back in Doodles (canvas summer shoes) - I wasn't going to have that happen again.
