Bargain Hunting with Miss Thrifty and Pampers Wonder Week

I've just been putting together this week's roundup of the best new UK freebies, hunting out free samples and fab money-saving discounts to share with you all to help save a few pennies. With perfect timing, I stumbled across an email from Pampers all about their Wonder Week of deals that launched this week. It proved so successful last year that they've decided to bring it back again, with lots more amazing savings and another whole week of wonderful deals. 

From 31st March – 6th April, Pampers will be working with selected retailers across the UK (Amazon, Asda, Boots, Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Superdrug, Tesco, Waitrose) to give you a week of amazing deals.

All you have to do is visit the Wonder Week website at, select your preferred retailer from the list available and your product deal then click through to their site to purchase. Not only will you get significant savings on buying the best quality products like Pampers in bulk, you can enjoy the convenience of having all your favourite nappies and wipes delivered directly to your door, freeing up as much time as possible for you and baby.

Wonder Week is all about buying in bulk to enjoy savings, which bargain-loving blogger Miss Thrifty (aka Karyn Fleeting) is passionate about as a simple way to save pounds. Karyn shares her tips on ways to save money and find discounts on her award-winning and hugely popular blog Miss Thrifty, which is in The Times Top 50 Websites to Save You Money.

Below, she shares her top tips to bulk buy successfully:

1. Always compare costs and check the price per unit.
In the UK, a product’s price label on the supermarket shelf will also specify the price per unit: if you are considering a bulk purchase of a product, then check this price-per-unit, compare it and make a judgement call as to whether you will be saving money in the long-term.

2. “Stack” coupons and offers for additional savings.
To “stack” is to put multiple coupons towards the purchase of a single item. You can collect coupons from magazines and websites. If the supermarket with the best bulk-buy offers isn’t your closest, remember that you can obtain the savings anyway, if you take advantage of price match schemes.

3. If you are buying baby products, think long-term.
Think ahead if you are bulk-buying baby items such as clothes and nappies. Babies grow so quickly, so it’s sensible to buy a size up, or mix and match your bulk buy products. Disposable baby wipes are something you’ll be buying for years, so your bulk buy will definitely get used!

4. Be wary of bulk-buying a product or brand you haven’t bought previously.
Fortunately, many of the baby brands are available to try at no cost or low cost. Pampers, for example, will send you free samples (

5. Remember to adjust your household budget.
For those new to bulk-buying, here is a neat idea from an American money-saving blog, which is applicable to UK shoppers: raise your grocery budget, temporarily, by 25% - “take advantage of big sales when you see them…eventually, you won’t need that extra 25%” (The Simple Dollar)

Whether it’s teething, wind, or just excitement that’s disrupting those 12 golden hours of sleep, every parent has their own tried and tested tricks to help encourage a restful slumber, but something that might get overlooked is a reliable, comfortable and absorbent nappy. Pampers Wonder Week will see amazing offers on the full Pampers range including New Baby, Premium Protection, Baby-Dry nappies Baby-Dry Pants and Pampers Sensitive Wipes, so your little one will have all they need to sleep through the night and wake up for a day of boundless play, every day!

I remember how many nappies and wipes we used to get through when the Madhouse kids were small, so buying in bulk for these products is definitely a great way of saving a few pounds (not to mention avoiding emergency supermarket dashes when you run out unexpectedly !).

  1. We found Costco was very good for babies nappies & wipes - great if you have one near you and can become a member. We were using baby wipes long after they were babies. Useful for everything!

    1. I still put a pack of babywipes in the bag for cleaning sticky fingers when we're out and about and my youngest is now 6 !! lol
