I love getting quality things for the boys that haven’t cost me an arm and a leg and so having been introduced to Casabu I have very quickly become a fan. Casabu regularly runs exclusive sales of a wide range of brands which include items for Mum, babies, children and more. I have regular email updates set up so that I may be alerted to new sales as with up to 50% off (and occasionally more) off these fantastic items I can’t afford not to.
The beauty of Casabu for me, other than the fact that it saves me a substantial amount of money is that they do all of the hard work for me. Regularly updated sales boast a range of gift ideas, home ideas and more for the family. Sales do run for a limited time however so it is worthwhile keeping an eye on the site or registering for emails.
This week for example there is a Krooom sale which offers a range of fabulous eco-friendly items which are perfect for imaginative play. As you can see below there are some great savings to be made.
We recently received a new play tent from Casabu which we were sent in exchange for an honest review regarding how we felt the site performed and how we as a family felt about the whole set up and the range of brands features. The play tent has been a huge hit with the boys, it came quickly and was brilliantly packaged. I hadn’t heard of the brand of tent before however was seriously impressed at the quality and the sale price of the item as it was approximately 50% cheaper than ones I had been looking at elsewhere.
Having experienced one item from Casabu I have since spent a good amount of time browsing and have already decided that this is a site which will enable me to save a fortune on birthday and Christmas presents, as well as the odd item for myself. Postage and packaging (I hate hefty p&p charges!) is only £1.99 per order and free for orders over £40 so no complaints here.
In conclusion Casabu is a fabulous way to enjoy budget-friendly shopping, find inspiration for gifts and treats and discover new brands. Despite my being introduced to Casabu as part of a blogging campaign I have been impressed enough by what I’ve seen and experienced myself to recommend it to others and have it bookmarked in my “favourite shops” file.

I frequently get asked when I’m having another baby now that Taylor is 2yrs old. Many insist almost that I should because “you don’t want to be surrounded by boys, you should have a girl to even out the balance”. My usual reply is that there is only room for one cow-bag in my house and that is me . This usually works for a while.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-baby and I do have my broody moments but I am being very careful to boil my water at the moment because there must be something in there given how many people I know locally who are pregnant! Amongst this vast number I’m thrilled to say is one of my sisters who is expecting her first boy or girl in early October. Cue full-on auntie mode!
This will be the first of my sisters to have a baby, although I have lots of fabulous nephews from my brothers and I am actually quite excited. I have a new-found enthusiasm for maternity clothes sites and baby gift shops and I have plans for spoiling this new arrival when he or she arrives.
Browsing once more I’m amazed at the range of gift ideas, both practical and just pretty that I seem to have glossed over when pregnant with my two. If this baby shares the love of shoes of his or her (Hurry up next scan so we can hopefully find out the gender) mother then these soft leather baby shoes will be a must! I’m not sure but I think buying for others could actually be more fun that buying for your own in a way because you don’t have a big to-get list and may enjoy getting things like these Merry Berries.
I received some gorgeous practical gifts when pregnant with my two and was ever so thankful for them at the time so should probably do the same myself for my sister however I’m having so much fun. A question for my readers who are parents….. What was the best gift you received and why? You might help me with other ideas for spoiling the new arrival!
