So the new Challenge has been picked and we will be off and running with the Yellow Sticker Challenge in a couple of days. In the meantime I am getting my eye in and looking everywhere I go for bargains, yellow sticker items and other reduced to clear goodies.
Yesterday for instance, while I was at Wyevale in Altrincham for a spot of lunch with Mum, I spied this little chappy all alone on a shelf. He's a doorstop ... but not in our house, nope we are never normal but I'm sure you have all sussed that out by now.
We already have one exactly the same guarding the spare-room door, not to keep it open but to protect the carpet on the outside of the room when the door is closed! Our lovely boy Ginger the cat, thinks that every closed door is a challenge that should be dug under, and he will spend minutes at a time frantically pulling the carpet up. He has also started doing that on our little landing area halfway up the stairs, and I'm finding myself more and more frequently having to push the fitted carpet back into place.
Our first doggy doorstop cost me £10 I think a few years ago, but this chap was reduced to 70% off ...
... which means he cost me the grand total of £3.90, and I think he will come in very handy.
Now I know he's not got a yellow sticker and he's not edible, but I think for the duration of the seven day Challenge if I see something like this I will break out of 'yellow sticker 'mode and add any multi coloured sticker bargains to my shopping basket as well.
It would have been rude to have left such a handsome and useful little chappy behind.
Edited to add ...

I'll be back tomorrow with my Yellow Sticker Challenge shopping rules.
