Uni Hill Factory Outlet Shopping Overhaul!

Yesterday I set foot into a new factory outlet direct to public - Uni Hill Factory Outlet located in Bundoora.
I am still unsure whether it was a good thing I went to Uni Hill FO or not... purely because I know I will be back and will max out those accounts and especially since I'm on maternity leave still just waiting for my little bub to pop out, boredom does get to me at home and Uni Hill FO is only a 30-40 min drive down the fwy for me.
But seriously if you are looking for bargains and want to save a heap of retail prices - shop here! 
Uni Hill has a centre full of well known brands that will attract anyone from all different ages so it's really a one stop shop with the convenience of all the grocery shops across the road from Uni Hill in the town centre shops.
After my blogging event I was gifted with several different vouchers to use at selected stores within the centre and here is my shopping overhaul:

After doing taking park in a Kaiser Craft workshop earlier in the day from Uni Hill FO Blogger Event I had a $30 voucher to cash in. Being completely inspired doing a DIY crafts project, I purchased some little knick knacks for myself to decorate for bubs. 
I got the starting letter of her name and a 3 pack of butterflies to decorate (unfortunately not showing my letter craft project as name is not being told until bubs is here).
This morning I set my little work station up using the tools and adhesives we were given in our little packs from the workshop and put my designer touches on these beautiful butterflies for bubs room!
The smaller the wood cuts are the harder it is to cut out the paper to stick onto the cuts I found - that mini butterfly was a killer but in the end they were all worth it for bubs room!

Kaisercraft is an Australian owned craft and scrapbooking products manufacturer & wholesale supplier to craft retailers around the world.
The Kaisercraft University Hill Outlet is full of beautiful products that will help you get creative at great prices. They stock design papers, embellishments, wooden DIY projects and lots of heavily discounted craft products suitable for all ages and skill levels.

There was no voucher for Cotton On that was given but there was massive deals, bargains and savings that I could not walk past.
I purchased 3 t-shirts for Dan with a 3 for $10 which each t-shirt was originally either $14.95 or $19.95 deal and then with any purchase from Cotton On you can purchase a knitted scarf for only an extra $5 normally retailed at $19.95! Came at such good timing as I was in need of a new infinity scarf - I got mine in a gorgeous teal like colour. 

Total without discount applied if purchased at original price: $74.80
Total actually spent in Cotton On: $15.00
Total saved: $59.80

This store is for more the young adults and teenagers shop to me. For both women and men. 
I had a $40 voucher here (Two $20 vouchers as I did a swapsy with a Stafford Direct one with fellow blogger).

From here I had to put in a bit extra to get what I wanted. I picked up a SRH t-shirt for Dan for $29.95 which was originally $49.95 and then I got these adorably cute little DC shoes for when bubs is walking for $49.95 originally $59.95. 
I can't wait to put her in these!

Russell Athletic sell sports items and sports wear. I was given a $30 voucher but then also attached on the 2 pairs of socks we received in our goodie bag from the blogging event was $10 on each pair of socks. Giving me a total of $50 to spend in Russell Athletic.

At Russell Athletic I picked up 2 t-shirts for Dan, 1 t-shirt for me, a t-shirt for bubs and 2 mini Sherrin footballs that I got for my shopping buddies girls. (Socks pictured in photo were inside goodie bag)
Dans tops were picked up for $10-$15 with the original prices of $19.99-$29.99.
My top was picked up at $10 was originally $19.99.
Bubs top was picked up at $9.99 orginally $19.99.
Sherrin mini footballs were 2 for $5 (I am not 100% sure what they normally retail each so I will calculate in both ways the same $5 price.)

Total without discount/vouchers applied if purchased at original price: $94.96
Total actually spent in Russell Athletic: $0.00
Total saved: $94.96

3 Brands come under the Russell Athletic Banner, Russell Athletic, Sherrin and Spalding.

Londsdale London - I think everyone knows. Sporting/casual clothes for Men, Women, Youth and Kids. 
I was given a $30 voucher to spend and I picked bubs up a little set that would make perfect gifts for bubs out there. 

The pack set contained: A romper, beanie, bib and a little bow that could be used to put around bubs head that went around the box of this case. This I picked up for $29.95 was originally $39.95.

Total without discount/vouchers applied if purchased at original price: $39.95
Total actually spent in Lonsdale London: $0.00
Total saved: $39.95

Lonsdale London, first established itself as the quintessential boxing and sports brand in the early 1960’s on Beak St, Soho in London, however its roots and history go back even further. Today, Lonsdale London continues to stay true to its rich, historic British roots as an authentic boxing brand through producing quality lifestyle and active wear.

I do still have a voucher for Adidas & Glo Weave which I will be returning to the Uni Hill Factory Outlet in the next coming weeks before my vouchers run out to purchase items as I was very undecided on what to get from there. 

and to also give mention again to Stafford Direct which I did a swapsy with vouchers and to Killer Coffee which I had a free hot drink voucher and got a special little girl a hot chocolate my fellow shoppers eldest daughter.

With the day ending I carried home 7 bags of goodies with only having to spend $55 but really $35 when you take out our $20 petrol voucher.
