It’s that time of the month again where I link up with Julia and her Five Under £5 series sharing five things I’ve bought in the last month that have cost no more than £5.
It’s always so hard for me to think of what to include as I buy quite a lot of things each month – things for the house, things we need, gifts and things that I think might be of use one day… Most of the things I buy are also under five pounds as I do love a bargain.
This month’s assortment starts with a Garden Trading jar of pegs. I love Garden Trading and I love things that look nice but are useful too. I’m also starting to collect things for when our extension is done and I thought this jar would look lovely on the side in our utility room. It was also reduced to £3 in the Homesense clearance – so a bargain too!
We are off on our first family holiday abroad in less than five months and I am starting to prepare for it where I can. I spotted these Cargo Shorts in the Next clearance section and had to buy them for Little Man – they were again reduced to just £3 and will be perfect for our holiday – and the summer in general.
One of my favourite places to shop for homeware and toys is Sainsburys and we often go to our local store just to have a wander. Last week we went there to look for a costume for World Book Day for LP and instead of a costume I ended up with a bag of toys – for LP and Little Man’s Birthdays and also our present box. The best bargains were these two Frozen dolls, reduced to just £4 each! LP will love them when her Birthday comes around.
Lastly, after finishing the Harry Potter series a few days ago I needed something else to read and after hearing so many positive reviews of it I bought Disclaimer. I have a constant book wish list on Amazon and like to treat myself to a couple of books every now and again and this one was around £4.
So there you have my favourite five things under £5 for the month. I’ll be back in April sharing some more!
