So, I was in Poundland yesterday afternoon… I was TOTALLY on my way to DIOR (I wasn’t), I just got kinda bundled through the door (I didn’t)…. swept in on an errant wave of pedestrians if you will… (nuh uh).
Anyway… aside from the HIDEOUS Christmas musak that they were blaring at 140db and the one sales assistant that I couldn’t look at because she had a bogey on her cheek… I was kinda impressed!
I’ve decided to economise on some of the essentials in order to free up the cash for some guilt-free luxury purchases.
I need a list. Come on ladies, you’re savvy (if not always frugal), what are the things I can stop hammering my Boots Advantage card with? I know I love collecting the points (I’m at £70 this year *whoop!*)…. but, it’s not really the most economical way to shop is it? I’ve probably overspsent triple that in order to collect those points.
I’m not prepared to compromise on quality, because afterall… we’re talking the essentials here.
I don’t wanna swap my bath smellies for cheapies, ‘cos they’re exactly the kind of things I wanna luxe out on. Same goes for shampoos until I’ve pinned down exactly what irritates my scalp.
But what are the things I could pick up for pennies and not really notice any differences other than to my purse?
Edit: Just to clarify for my one ‘reader’ who got her rocks off on a bit of comment spite this afternoon… I don’t think I’m ‘above’ shopping in Poundaland… I am the pikey queen of discount Maryland cookies. So shut up and get a sense of humour. You’re in luck ‘cos they’re on 2 for 1 next to the Toffifee.
