Pamper your pets

If you’re got pets and you’re a regular at Maxi Zoo, you might be interested in this LivingSocial voucher which gives you €20 spending power for €12. Valid for one of their 18 locations around the country, you will have to use the entire value in one visit, though that shouldn’t be too difficult.

Bits for baby

Searching for a few bits for your new or impending arrival? This week Argos is running a sale on baby and toddler-related items. That includes a Clair de Lune quilt and bumper set for €10.79 (was €26.99), an activity walker for €26.99 (reduced from €48.99) and a portable swing reduced from €109.99 to €62.49.

Peace of mind

If you regularly drive around Dublin (or any other place in Ireland, really), you’re bound to see something stupid on the road, from drivers running through red lights and ignoring lane markings to excessive speed and complete ignorance of the purpose of indicators. Unfortunately, sometimes these incidents can lead to a crash, and if the driver at fault is obstinate, you might have a fight on your hands over who is to blame.

That’s why having a dashcam is a great idea – very popular with the Russians, it can easily show who is at fault in an accident. If you’re thinking about making the investment, Halfords is offering 10% off its range of dashcams, which starts from €52.

Pancakes at the ready

Pancake Tuesday is coming up next week, so get shopping for all your ingredients and toppings! SuperValu is offering a number of deals on pancake essentials, including price reductions on Odlums quick pancake mixes, lemon juice, maple and chocolate syrup, as well as a two for €5 deal on Nutella. Scrumptious!

Dealz has also got the essentials for lower prices, including jars of Nutella chocolate spread, honey, golden syrup and pancake mix for €1.50.
