Which is why I'm thrilled to be involved with HomeSense, they also operate on a unique "off-price" concept which offers quality and branded homeware at a fraction of the cost.
HomeSense launched in the UK in April 2008 and now has 26 stores in the UK. I've two stores within close proximity to me - Watford and Lakeside Thurrock. In a few weeks I will be visiting the Watford store to have a nosey around, take some pictures and while there I will be using my Shopping Sense to pick out some new homeware pieces for my home.
So, who is on the Sensology Panel?
Well it is a small group of 6 lovely ladies - Marianne (Maris World), Emma (Me the Man and the Baby), Laura (Tired Mummy of Two), Danielle (Two Point Four Children), Fritha (Tigerlilly Quinn) and myself.
What is it all about?
HomeSense have launched a new Facebook App where it asks you a few questions about you and your shopping habits, and then tells you about the sense you use most when you are shopping!
Well, after taking the quiz the panel will take a store visit bearing in mind their Shopping Sense, and we will shop focusing on that sense. We will let you know how accurate the quiz is and will talk you through our shopping experience using that given sense.
I can't wait to see if it is right for me.
You can take the quiz your self by clicking here.
