There are a couple of blogs that I love to read that take an opportunity each month to showcase 5 things they have got recently for under £5. As I read them they really make me smile… I just love to see others too be excited for little bargains that crop up in life and then I realised how much this barganeous way of thinking was right up my street, so this week (and once a month here after) I will be joining them and showing off what lovely delights I have picked up for under a fiver each too!
So without further ado here are mine.
1. Some Daffodils – I am really fond of fresh flowers in the home, they brighten it and lifet my mood. I like especially if they carry the added bonus of being seasonal, so when in Morrisons the other day grabbing a few forgotten extras (you know how it is) I spotted a lonely bunch in a bucket for just £1…Fresh, spring, yellowy daffs for £1…and by the next morning they had all opened up to greet us. Happiness in a vase!
2. A pair of Nike trainers for Megsie – Megs is very active and also loves her weekly street dance class and so a pair of trainers are an essential in her wardrobe, however she grows so fast and now at 3.5 years old she is already in a size 10 and so was in need of a new pair. As soon as I saw these in the charity shop for £2.50 we had to have them and I couldn’t believe my luck!
3. Cops and Robbers book – This is one of my old time faves from primary school, I don’t know why, but I just love it. I snapped it up last month in a charity shop also for just 49p and it has quickly become popular with the kids at bedtime too…Happy days!
4. Mini Cacti for our room – I fell in love with these as soon as I saw them last week in Ikea and I had to have them both. The red one was £2 and the yellowy one £2.50. They really add a lot to our room sat on the fire place and I particularly love the heart shaped one… such a lovely little touch for £4.50.5. Fabric for a cushion – Again I picked this up in Ikea for just £3.60. I absolutely love the pattern and colours and it is what I imagined in our room when I thought of kitting it out in teal and red. Its so beautiful and will make the perfect cushion cover for our bed! I’m tempted to make a pair of curtains too…
So there are my choices for this month that sum up my bargainous lifestyle in pursuit to make my home and kids a little more lovely as we head into spring!
