as I am on a spending frenzy :laughing:

Have recently redecorated the playroom and bought new units and a tv. Have bought several bits for the garden, including the stuff for DH to build a big sandpit.

Been out today and bought these



a load of paints as well from elc.

Then went into poundland and the works and stocked up on a ton of stuff for easter crafts :thumbsup:

am just about to order this for my fireman sam obsessed mindee


and also have my eye on these bits



anyone else spending up before self assessment day and what are you buying? (Im so nosey :laughing: )

I went out and bought a new cooker and a toy supermarket last weekend. Im yet to work out food for the year and then taking into account utilities and wear and tear. Will hopefully get that done just before the end of the month and then if i need to ill go shopping again! :clapping:
Love toy shopping!!! lol

I buy bits and pieces throughout the year and now only spend when I need to. If I spend £100.00 i use it all whereas if I make £100 I only potentially pay £25 to the tax man, leaving £75 in my pocket

I have just finished my huge spend up, artificial grass, posh pushchair from NZ and laptop as my home computer is crashing with the weight of my cm stuff and i can't get on it when i want! My main reason is not to avoid the tax man (see post above about only paying a bit of earning) but I need to get our family income to the level where we don't forfeit other benefit so thought that as i needed all of above may as well do it this tax year rather than wait few weeks, my income through losing one family who paid a lot is going to make next year lower anyway!!

never been so frivolous with money but am really pleased with purchases!!

I'm always spending :blush:

I love the fire station, the tepee's lovely too (I got one from Home Bargains for £4.99 but it's not as nice as that)

I would like an extension as a play room, can i put any of that against my tax? :idea:

I love the fire station and the tepee and the sand pit they have on their site is lovely. I do need to refresh some bits and pieces and now is the time to do it.

I also agree with Debbie I keep as much as I can even if it means paying the tax man a bit more. :clapping:

I love this time of year, I always get lots of website orders from schools. It continues in April when their new budgets begin too.

I find I just spend whatever time of the year it is:laughing:

Me too! If I see something and I think I can afford it/justify the cost then I buy it :laughing:. Need to get some play sand now and have ordered lots of new stuff from Nes Arnold in the sale. Need somewhere to put it all though:D

I know it's the end of the tax year because I am having courses & workshops thrown at me. One last week, 2 this week, 2 next week:D . I think that others are trying to use up their monies too.
