Shopping the sales

This January I (like to) think I've been quite restrained when it's come to sales shopping. I've bought some necessary things and some luxury- not everything as in the sale My best buy definitely has to by my Ohmylove black Sarah dress which has only just come back in stock and with £20 off!!
1) Xen-tan, Look fantastic, £16   2) Sarah dress, Ohmylove, £25   3) Ecote armour tee, U.O., £10   4) Hipflask, U.O., £12  
5) Rucksack, River Island, £15,   6) Patent Ballerina, Zara, £9.99
I got 2 other things; a body con midi striped midi skirt and a basic black jewelled dress from Urban outfitter- but they're not on the website. I bought a few things from Topshop too, things I ordered on Boxing day and received 15 days after (and after I'd actually cancelled the order, they still delivered it so now I have to pay for postage for items I no longer want) Very pissed off at the terrible customer service from Topshop sent them numerous emails now, but they keep fobbing me off- and can't even spell my name correctly!... *rant over*
One thing I didn't buy was skincare and body products as I received so much for Christmas it will probably last me till  2015!
What have you all been buying the sales? or are you on spending bans or just more restrained than me?
Or have you had any terrible customer care from any shops over the holidays?
