A'hunting I will go

Hunting for bargains that is!

Today I went to the local shopping centre and yes I found some bargains!

We have a lovely BHS Home shop and I was lucky enough to be emailed a 25% off voucher from them.  So I went there looking for bath sheets for us girls - I bought the boys new ones a couple of months ago but couldnt find "pretty" ones for us.  

I got these for my daughter, in her favourite colour
as they were a new range in they hadnt been reduced but I still got 25% off of the £15.  And these for me...........

These were reduced from £18 to £5.60 and then I got 25% off of that!!!! Bargain of the day!

And also some hand towels...........
Thought these would brighten up our downstairs toilet that is waiting to be decorated and even better as they were only £2.10 minus 25%.

This is for my bathroom and was a bit dearer at £5.60 to start with, but was also prettier
This little bag will be great for make-up bits in my bedroom and was down from £8 to £2.40
I got some reading material...............
a free Laura Ashley catalogue, via a postcard they sent to me

The latest Next catalogue for £2

And the much blogged about "Mollie makes" mag.  I have never bought it before, although I was tempted, as I could not justify paying the £4.99.  However, in the August free Asda magazine there is a voucher for £1 off of any magazine that is priced at £3 or over - so I treated myself!

 These tops were reduced to £3 in Peacocks and £2 in Matalan - ideal for lazing around in the sun

This was reduced from £18 to £7 from Matalan - my very first maxi dress - thought this would be nice with a little red cardi

And finally.............
I wanted 2 fold up camping type chairs to use when doing bootsales, when sitting on the stoney beach and for generally relaxing in the garden.  I found some on the B&Q website reduced to £5 but they only showed a plain dark colour. I reserved them and they phoned to ask what colours I wanted and of course, when flowers were mentioned I didn't even listen to the other options.  I was delighted when I actually saw them - very me..........sorry hubby!!! 

So after all that shopping I need to go to bed now...........goodnight!


  1. LOVE the 'hearts' towel! BHS,here I come! We have those chairs,but in boring old green.Yours is really pretty. :0)

  2. Lovely towels - the flower one is pretty and cheery. You did really well with the bargains! Thanks for your comment re Greenwich - I think the market is both days, but we ventured away on the Sunday so can't be too sure. Brilliant place though and so close but so far from the hub of London.


  3. Great bargins, love the towels and the clothes, so pretty :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  4. You did well, great day out xx
