Yes, there was a budget the other day and yes, the economic catastrophe is still rocking away, but it’s December and that means Christmas, presents and shopping.

Santa
Wonder could I get away with cancelling Christmas due to unforeseen circumstances?

Over the next fortnight (it’s that close), most OTR readers will be out on those mean streets looking for bargains and deals. This post is the place where you, the clued-in shopper, can tip off your fellow readers about where to go to get the best prices on box-sets, DVDs, books and other entertainment yokes and pieces of kit which will pop up on various lists.

We’re particularly keen to hear about good deals in local shops. While you’ll probably find most items cheaper online, if you do come across an Irish store flogging the new Bruce Springsteen or Orange Juice box-set at a decent price, let everyone else know. And the flipside also applies – feel free to point out any glaring price discrepancies which you might come across as well.

The bargains, the deals and the ones to avoid: the floor is yours.
