I am a bargain hunter. I search high and low for the best deals and the biggest bargains around. Christmas is no change either.
It can be such an expensive time with presents to buy, decorations, sweets, biscuits, place settings and everything else to think about, the price can fly up. This year is different though as I was invited into the blogger #poundlandsanta! challenge by Poundland to see how much and the variety I could get from Poundland with £20.
Well I couldn't wait to get there and get shopping. Choosing some lovely decorations, sweets for the boys and all those little extras to make it extra special.
We had changed the whole colour way of our tree and so needed a new topper. I couldn't believe that I could pick this gorgeous white one up in Poundland. I then chose some baubles to compliment our tree.
A pack of 2 red and white stripy ones and a pack of 2 fluffy ones that are beautiful and stand out loads on the tree.
Also, we purchased 4 garlands for the ceiling but don't currently have them up as I ran out of pins and 2 stockings which play musical tunes too.
Christmas crackers for on the table and to pull during our dinner which have a cute red and white design on them. A pack of chocolate Christmas lollies for the boys and a tin of Danish biscuits for the grown ups so at least we all get something then. The biscuits were so nice that we have already eaten the full tin and have since popped back in for more.
With the rest of the money, I bought sweets and treats for the boys and for Thomas' school too as they always have a party for Christmas and we had been picked to buy sweets. Different lolly pops and sweets to hand out and a Toblerone bar for my husband who loves them.
Last up I bought an angel brooch for myself. It is clipped onto my coat and looks so pretty. On the back it has a button which allows it to flash different colours to make it extra festive.
I was s happy with all the goodies and Christmas items that I was able to purchase for just £20. If you want to see what else they sell then pop over to their website to see the Poundland Christmas range and every other bargains that they sell.
