Poundland bargains

It’s not very often that I feel inspired to write about Poundland but sometimes you can have an incredible shopping sesh in there! I popped into the Truro branch yesterday and it turned out to be loads better than the one in Penzance.

I only went in for a photo frame as I had just picked up some amazing wrapping paper from Inhabit. It has teapots over it and I thought it would be a nice, colourful addition to the kitchen. Somehow I ended up spending £12! Here are the best bits – minus the boring brunch bars and tissues I could get from anywhere…

You never know when you might suddenly need another disposable BBQ

I nearly bought some ramekins in The Big Ass Tesco on Monday for like £8! So glad I refrained

This book looked pretty interesting

We needed a new grater and this pink one will jazz up the worktops a bit

Super cute and colourful ice cream bowls with spoons! Might not be big enough for one serving in our house though…

I don’t use pencils very often but a pack of five Zebra pencils for £1 was too good not to buy

Finally, some epic biscuits which go perfectly with a cup of tea.

And here’s the wrapping paper which started all of this! It wasn’t until I went to frame it that I realised it was double-sided. I loved both patterns so much that I made them my wallpaper and screensaver on my phone and now want to get another frame to display the reverse. It’s pretty, right?

And here it is framed. There aren’t any hooks on the back for hanging, so it’s above my fireplace for now.

  1. Hello there! :)
    You do have an eye for great things! :)

    I recently bought the Memo Board from Poundland and I don’t understand what those 4 black squares are for! My board keeps falling off after fixing it with the double tapes!
    Could please help me on this one?
    Thank you! :D

  2. I love this, I’ve recently been on a huge pound shop spree, but I’m obsessed with everything you got, especially the photo frame and the memo board! I might need to look again haha!
