|Short sleeve vests|
I'm not going to say how much I spent until the end of the post because I always think it's fun to guess. I went with the intention of buying winter clothes but I also found a few things in larger sizes for next spring/summer.
We got: 3 John Lewis long sleeve vests (similar RRP £10), 3 short sleeve vests, 3 ribbed tights, a cashmere babygrow (similar RRP £66), a Monsoon summer dress (similar RRP £30), a pair of Mothercare boots, one Mothercare pj top & trousers (two pack RRP £14), a Mothercare dress with nappy cover, Next dungarees & a Rock a Bye baby coat. I also got a Mothercare changing rucksack for when I have Evelyn in the sling & can't carry my normal changing bag comfortably.
As well as all the clothing items I got a Lindam door bouncer (RRP £19.99). My friend Hannah has the same one for her baby boy Olly so Evelyn's been in one before & I know that she loves it. It was the item that I spent the most on but it's also the item I'm most happy about finding.

For anyone who hasn't been to an NCT sale here's a few pointers:
- Get there early if you don't have membership. We arrived half an hour early & were still queuing behind more than 20 people.
- Bring cash for the entry fee. - I don't know if the cost is the same for every sale but ours cost £1.
- Make a list of what you're hoping to find. - You can get carried away other wise & if you know what you want the most you can look at those stands first & avoid missing out on the good items.
- Pick up everything that's a 'maybe' then sit in a corner, choose what you definitely want to buy & put back the rest.
How much did you guess that we spent?
