Bargains from the pound shop! #BargainOfTheWeek11:06
I'm such a bargain hunter, seriously! And If I can get something for 50p less elsewhere, I will. I try to budget as much as I possibly can because every 50p and every £1 really do add up! My change jar proved that. I also like having a look in the bargain and pound shops as I have picked up some really good bargains in those places. In one of my local towns, which is a bus ride away is a pound shop, it's not pound land or any named shop, it's just a local pound store and there are always lots of bargains to be had! It can be a bit of a hit and miss, sometimes I go in there and there's nothing much really that catches my eye, yet another time I can go in and find quite a few bargains!
Here are a couple of Christmas bits I picked up this week.
First of all the window stickers. They were 3 for £1. These will look lovely on either the back door, or the front door. The kids always enjoy putting these up.
Next I picked up a couple of books. The first being 'Anna's Book Of Secrets' This cost £1 and RRP price is £5.99 (so it says on the back of the book!) I'd say this was a pretty good bargain.
It has the story inside of Frozen and in the back of the book are pages to write down secrets and birthdays, memories and stick in photos and stickers.Along with some other activities. It's a beautiful little book which my daughter will love finding in her stocking!
Next up is the joke book I also got for £1. On the back of the book it says £5.99. Now my son will LOVE this. He loves telling jokes and this book will give him no end of laughs and everyone else, too!
I also picked up these Christmas cards which were 3 for £1. I got six. Six lovely Christmas cards for £2. Can not grumble at that!
I hope this has inspired you to check out your local bargain stores! As I said above they can be a bit of a hit and miss and sometimes I find that it might "only" be £1 but I can get two for that price elsewhere! At this time of year though, there are always lots of bargains to be had.
