I haven’t done one of these for a while, but I am bringing them back. I’m trying to focus on doing more things that I enjoy, and one of those things is shopping! Combine that with my love of a bargain, and five under £5 makes me very happy.

Basically it is exactly what it says on the tin. Five things I have purchased that have cost £5 or under.

First up is this plant pot and plant from Matalan. I am all about the artificial plants. I simply cannot keep real ones alive, so after many years I am playing to my strengths and making sure all nature in my house is fake! The plant pot and stand was £5, and there were loads of different colours and designs to choose from. They had bigger ones too. and the artificial ‘green thing’ was £4.

I bought this sign for the very simple reason that it was 25p. How could I walk away from something reduced in Poundland to 25p. So now it lives in my bathroom and makes me think “TWENTYFIVE P!!!” every time I go in there. I’ll stop saying 25p now.

I love Paperchase, but I do find it on the pricey side. So I always love it when I find a bargain or something that’s really good value in there. These cute little notecards came in a box of 10 for £4

And finally, because I love a bit of stationery, I picked up these pencils in Wilko’s because I liked the colours, but liked them even more when I saw the little inspirational messages printed on them. Things like “Give yourself time” and “you can.” The pack of 6 pencils was £1 and they are from the Sentiments range. Although I think one of my biggest bug bears in life is buying pencils that you then have to sharpen yourself!

  1. Geez you got some amazing bargains Claire. Especially the sign for 25p – what a steal!! I too love a good bargain, especially when you aren’t looking for it!

  2. I miss my bargain shops. I used to work in town so often picked bits up on my lunch breaks. I am loving the plant pot and those pencils, I do love a bit of pretty stationary.
