It is high time I shared some of my bargain finds.
Here is a door stop found in the charity shop. It cost £1.50
Continuing the animal theme, I bought this bell. I always find my children are dispersed widely at dinner time so here is a bell to summon them to the table.
This one cost just £1
Him Indoors does buy me flowers despite not being the most romantic soul on the planet. I never seem able to find a vase so I bought this one for £3.50 which I thought was a bit pricey but it does the job nicely and will encourage him to buy flowers more often.
Then there is my absolute bargain find which is this double bed acquired from the Netmums Nearly New Boards for just a tenner.
Yes, the bedspread also came via Netmums and was brand new.
I also picked up some Cosmopolitan brand bedding recently. Sheets, duvet covers, valances and pillow cases all for £11 and brand new. A lovely subtle print of purpley flowers on a cream background. The photograph did not do it justice so I am not going to print it until I do a better job with the camera.
On my shopping list currently for bargains are …
Chests of Drawers
Computer Desk and Chair
Kitchen and Bathroom storage solutions – if anyone has any ideas on storage for these rooms, let me know.
I am making a commitment not to buy as many toys in charity shops as the children lose interest in them so quickly these days. There will be a bigger focus on outdoor stuff now that the weather is better.
Linking up late but better late than never with the wonderful and inspirational Liz over on the Me and My Shadow blog. Get over there and see some other lovely bargains of the beautiful, quirky and wonderful type.
