Regular readers will now that when I go bargain hunting I buy things that are a little quirky or that I find appealing to the eye.

This week’s bargains are of a more practical nature.

Again, I am celebrating the joys of the Netmums Nearly New Boards.  Anyone would think I was sponsored by Netmums but nope, I just love the variety of stuff you can find on their boards.

I always need more storage.  I think that is par for the course with people who like to collect things in a magpie like manner.

So this week’s find included a white chest of drawers for £20.  They were so solid and heavy that we chickened out of taking them upstairs so they know live in our larger lounge.

However, my major delight was finding loads of brand new carpet tiles in exactly the right colour for the boys’ bedroom. There is loads of furniture and stuff in there so carpet tiles will make things a lot easier altogether.

“Darling, can you collect 150 carpet tiles after work?”

There are times when just like the porridge in Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Him Indoors is “just right”.  His willingness to go to random places to collect all manner of items is one of the way he fits very nicely with me thank you,

I spy in my local charity shop lots of Jubilee stuff.  I am keeping out till the last minute or there will be a huge dent in the ol’ bank balance I am sure.

Now make your way to the Me and My Shadow blog where you will find lots of lovelies waving their flags about the joys of bargain-hunting.

If you happen to be charity-minded and let’s fact it charity shops are a wonderful place to find affordable stuff, I would love you to check out how you can help a charity of your choice every time you shop online at no extra cost to you.  http://www.give.as/kateonthinice
