I’m a big fan of online shopping, but every now and then I love to venture to the shops to sneak in a cheeky item of clothing while grocery shopping – don’t tell Ben though. He still hasn’t managed to see through my “Oh, I’ve had that top for years” game and I’m rather proud that he thinks I’m the most reasonable women ever because I’m only ever coming home with clothes for him and Amy.
Okay, I do feel a little guilty from time to time, but to be honest, I don’t really have to, because the summer clothes from Tesco that I got over the last couple of weeks really didn’t break the bank. I picked up a couple of lovely outfits for Amy and some cargo pants and flip flops for Ben for the price that I’d usually pay for one or two items in a department store. You might say, “I bet you have to compromise on quality when you buy clothes in a supermarket”, but you will be surprised when I tell you that most of the items, that I got when I first moved to the UK about four years ago, are still going strong. I still remember how I went to my local Tesco for the first time back then. German supermarkets are usually all about groceries and the odd DIY item, so when I was finished with my grocery shop at Tesco’s and came to an area that displayed a whole range of clothes I thought “Hallelujah, I like shopping in England”.
I still do four years on and Tesco is still one of my firm favourites for sneaky little additions to my wardrobe. I can always find a number of different styles for all the family and the best thing is that everything is reasonably priced, even more so when you collect Clubcard points like I do and double them during the big Clubcard Exchange. The Summer Clubcard Exchange is on for another 21 days (ends 29/08/2012), so double your points and get shopping – the weather gods will have to change their mind at some point and if they don’t, there’s always a lovely Autumn and Winter range to look at.
