“Put on your fighting gear, it’s time to battle for those half price bargains.”
Once a year, Sainsbury’s put on a spectacle. The half price toy sale brings out the worst in mums across the country. Fighting tooth and nail to grab those bargains.
Unlike previous years though, this year it’s not a blanket sweep of all toys for half price, some toys are just a third or even a quarter off.
Still, it’s well worth heading down to you local store as early as possible on Wednesday 24th October 2012 to grab yourself a bargain.
There will also be limited items available online – Click Here (when it goes live)

UPDATE – It’s all over, sorry if you missed out.
“Stop getting bugged by your kids – Debenhams has cheap sets.”
In Debenhams’ current Blue Cross sale, pick yourself up a cheap Hex Bug Christmas present.
Hexbugs have been a bizarre phenomenon for a while now. Expensive plastic toys that seem to serve no purpose other than to get you kids obsessed. Fortunately, Debenhams have the answer for all the “I WANTS”, three Hexbug sets for a reasonable price (i.e. what you think they may be worth, rather than the original over priced RRP).
They’re actually good fun to watch vibrate their way around the sets and are much easier to maintain and clean out than a hamster. So, if you’ve got a little badger demanding one of these strange little toys, head over to Debenhams now by clicking one of the three cheap sets below:
“Claim your free Kellogg’s ‘Tip and Sip’ Bowl.”
Three codes from special boxes and this clever bowl is yours.
Kellogg’s have recently started “dishing out” these great new bowls. They’re a plastic bowl with a straw built into them, so the last of the milk can be slurped up without that risk of “chocolate flavoured milk down the freshly warn school jumper” issue.
The bowls come in four types, Frosties, Coco Pops, corn Flakes and Mini Max (has anyone tried these yet? Like little sugar coated Shredded Wheat? The kids love them, but they’re really expensive.)
At last, never again will I have to go to work with that dubious stain on my shirt and tie the kids need to change their tops before school
Two problems that Kellogg’s do need to address:
1. How to make Maxi-Minor_Furie eat cereal from the bowl that isn’t on the bowl (Frosties must go into the Frosties bowl, etc).
2. A filter at the bottom so that you don’t suck up that horrid cereal dust when you reach the end of a packet 😉
Get the free bowl codes from special packs and more details HERE. You’ve until September 2013 to do it!!!
Argos are doing the ‘early bird’ 3 for 2 offer on toys again, ending on Tuesday 2nd October. Until Sunday 30th September they are still running the voucher promotion where you get a £5 voucher for spending over £50 or a £10 voucher for spending over £100.
The offer doesn’t show in your online basket, but will show up when you go to collect your reservations, or at the till. Rumour has it that Kurio and innotab are included in the offer. I ‘ll be buying moshi monsters toys and hexbugs for christmas.
Unlike 3 for 2 offers in other stores the till doesn’t arrange them in order of price, it simply gives you the cheapest ones for free, so it’s sometimes worth doing each 3 in a separate transaction to get the best savings.
“Hurray for a new look site.”

Welcome to the new look Family_Furie site. I’ve redesigned the site and put it on a different platform to make it much , much easier to update.

The new themed area is set to open Easter, 2011 – so be prepared for more updates in the future.
