OK. Don’t panic. Don’t panic. I’ve got five minutes fifty two seconds before my basket expires.
That’s loads of
time! All I have to do is quickly find one more item to
bump up my total to £75 so I’ll get free delivery.
Come on, Becky. You can find something.
I’m scrolling down the BargainFamily site on my
computer screen, feeling like a NASA operative keeping
cool under unspeakable pressure. The onscreen timer is
in my peripheral vision, ticking down steadily beneath a
heading that reads, Your Basket Will Expire Soon! But
you can’t give in to timer fear when you’re shopping on
discount sites. You have to be strong. Like tungsten.
Shopping has really changed for me over the years. Or
maybe I’ve changed. The days when I was a single girl,
living in Fulham with Suze and going round the shops
every day, seem ages ago now. Yes, I used to spend too
much. I’ll freely admit it. I’ve made mistakes. Like Frank
Sinatra, I did it my way.
(Except “my way” involved stuffing Visa bills under
the bed, which I bet Frank never did.)
But I’ve learned some important lessons, which have
genuinely changed the way I go about things. Like, for
1. I don’t use carrier bags anymore. They used to be
my biggest joy in life. Oh my God, the feel of a new
carrier bag…the rope handles…the rustle of tissue
paper…(I still sometimes go and swoon over my
old collection at the back of the wardrobe.) But
now I use a bag for life instead. Because of the
planet and everything.
2. I’m totally into ethical shopping. It’s like a winwin! You get cool stuff and you’re being virtuous.
3. I don’t even spend money anymore. I save money.
OK. So obviously that’s not exactly, actually, literally
true. But the point is, I’m always looking for a good deal.
I see it as my responsibility as a parent to procure all the
items that my family needs, at the most cost-effective
prices possible. Which is why BargainFamily is the
perfect place for me to shop. It’s all reduced! Designer
labels and everything!
The only thing is, you have to be a fast shopper, or else
your basket expires and you have to start again. I’m at
£62.97 already, so all I need is another item around 12
quid. Come on, quick, there must be something I need. I
click on an orange cardigan, £13.99, RRP £45, but when
I zoom in, I see a horrible lacy border.
No, I bought a white shirt last week (100 percent
linen, £29.99, RRP £99.99. I must remember to wear
I click on my basket to double-check on what I’ve
already got, and a pop-up window bursts forth,
announcing, You’ve Saved £284 Today, Becky!
