It's said that December is 'engagement month'. So you may be sporting some new bling or have a diamond-shaped dent in your wallet.
With engagements come weddings (spoiler alert: they don't come cheap) - see our 50 Cheap Wedding Tips guide. We've spotted some heavily reduced dresses suitable for bridesmaids which will hopefully help you save some cash on the big day or at least get you an extra Margarita or two on your honeymoon. These dresses would also be good if you have a fancy do to go to.
Our top pick 'bridesmaid' dresses from £20
There's a huge selection of reduced dresses* (it's best to search by size). The sale ends Sun 26 Jan, but stock's going fast and we reckon they'll be gone by then.
Below are some of the bargains before using the code:
Delivery's £3.99 or you can collect in-store for free.
To hone in on the best bargains, use the Regatta outlet tool. Tell it what you want, the price and the discount, and it'll find it for you. To see a selection of the winter coats above, use the search word 'jacket'.
Each point's worth 1p when redeemed on virtually any Boots-branded product in-store at Boots, so this is effectively a 10% discount on Boots branded items. Don't assume Boots is always cheapest though, if you can buy items 10%+ cheaper elsewhere, go there instead. See full Boost Loyalty Points guide for more Boots tips.
Our new Local eBay Deals Mapper lets you find bargains if you're prepared to pick them up. eBay sellers often specify items must be collected in person which means fewer bids. But you can't normally search 'collection only' so put your postcode in and how far you're prepared to schlep and watch the gems pop up.
Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!
