Muddy Puddles #bargainoftheweek!

If you read the blog often you will know that we are a family that love the outdoors! My husband is a Scout leader, we regularly go on family camping trips and enjoy days out in the countryside! We are National Trust Members and Forestry Commission Ambassadors.

All these adventures mean that the whole family needs to be kitted out in suitable outdoor clothing and that can get expensive! Last week a friend told me about the sale at  and I am so pleased she did! With up to 70% off children's outdoor wear I couldn't resist filling up my basket and I was thrilled to find when getting to check out that 2 x Fleeces, 2 x fleece lined waterproof pants, a funky skort, a fleece hat AND four pairs of socks came to just £40.50!! Delivery was £3.95, as you will know I usually HATE to pay delivery charges, however as this was my first order I signed up to their newsletter and was sent a code for £5 off which more that covered the delivery charge! So for less than £40 I had kitted both my children out for outdoor adventures! 

One thing to mention is that I'd read on social media about the sizing being a bit small so I bought a size up from what I would usually in both the fleeces and the trousers!

So my bargain buys included:

Cosy Cranberry Fleece £6
Cosy Star Fleece £6
Reversible Trousers Navy £8
Reversible Trousers Pink £8
Reversible Fleece hat £3.50
Girls spotty Cotton Skort £6.00
Cozy Socks (2 pack) Aqua £1.50
Cozy Socks (2 pack) Red £1.50

Delivery £3.95

First order discount £5

Total £39.45!!

The order arrived in just under a week and of course we had to go and try it out! So off we went to Delamere forest to try out our muddy puddles bargains by jumping in lots of Muddy Puddles!

Here's an action clip...

Even after all that mud the clothes have washed well and are ready for our next adventure!

If you fancy grabbing some bargains to kits out your kids in funky outdoor style you'll be pleased to know the sale is still on and until Monday there is FREE delivery if you spend over £40! Don't forget to sign up to the newsletter to get £5 off your first order too!

    That's fantastic bargains. Way to go you!!! Love love the pictures of outdoor family fun. I am hoping the weather bucks up soon so I can take my two outdoors again. Unfortunately mine are too tiny to bare this bad freeze state we are in. The clothes look great too.
