I have been loving the summer sales.  I have actually started Christmas shopping!  This is not a bid to be super organised but a bid to save money come December.

These are some of the things I have picked up for under £5 this month in my Five Under £5

The Cath Kidston pencils were £2 and quite frankly who doesn’t love a bit of Kidston.
Next up was a visit to Paper Chase. There’s not much in life that makes me happier than a visit to Paper Chase, but a visit to Paper Chase when they have a sale?  I was like a kid in a sweet shop!  I picked up  these cute note cards reduced from £6 to £3

I also picked up this cute space themed stationery set which was reduced to half price at £3.50 and contained a cute little pen set.  I might keep this as a stocking filler for the big one, if it doesn’t turn into one of those emergency birthday party presents before then.

These candles were from Matalan.  I loved the colours and they were reduced to £1 each.  If you haven’t hit the Matalan home section in sale season, you’re missing out.  I got so much stuff!
And finally this cute little bird cage tea light holder was a find from Poundland.

What bargains have you picked up this month?

Five Under £5 was started by Julie at Rainbeaubelle.  You can read all about it and get inspired by lots of other posts on her website.
