Can Not Resist A Bargain & My Biggest Bargain

Can Not Resist A Bargain & My Biggest Bargain Ever. Hello friends, happy Friday. Thank Crunchie it’s Friday, eh!?

I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it. I’m about to lose control and I think I like it. Remember that song? Remember that Friday Feeling advert from the 90’s? (Well I’m not this excited, but you get my drift!?).

I am happy as it is my weekend off work after my evening shift tonight, so I do have that Friday Feeling!! I hope we can get lots of jobs done over the weekend and go out somewhere nice too.

Can Not Resist A Bargain

Can’t resist a bargain! Can you?

Mixed shopping trip yesterday with some second-hand clothes and new pyjamas.

You know I’m drawn to polka dots and got 2 polka dot dresses, 1 polka dot shirt, a lovely tartan skirt, and silky blouse.

So many bargains 💕💕

I mentioned yesterday that I was going on a fun shopping trip with my daughter and mum. You can read yesterday’s post here: Pink Animal Print Dress & A Black Polo Neck Jumper. Thrifty Thursday.

In my quest for buying more sustainable clothes that will stand the test of time, I have been finding some bargains in charity shops.

I did buy some beautiful Disney Lady and the Tramp pyjamas from Primark though as Lady is so adorable and I miss my Mollie so much.

Coffee threw in and a lovely surprise catch up with cousins 💕 lots of laughter was had by all.

You can catch my Instagram reel here and have a sneak peep of what I brought! Charity Shop Haul.

Also, I have a top tip of the day, if someone phones you when you are out shopping, pick up the phone. You never know there might be around the corner 😂😂 🥰🥰

It would not have crossed my mind not to answer!! Ha!!

My Biggest Bargain Ever:

Well, this has to be my biggest ever bargain that has stood the test of time.

I honestly can not remember when I brought it but before I moved house I think so it must be over 14 years old.

When Asda had a refit and sold everything off cheap. So, I picked this dress up for £1.00 and have my pounds worth over and over again.

Also, it still washes up beautifully and no ironing is needed as it is the crinkled-up effect.

I even wore this on my 40th birthday ( over 8 years ago!) and it is still going strong. You can read that post here Birthday Treats And Turning The Big 4 0 !! So turning 40 is not really that bad. Even though I feel a lot old than I did in my 30’s. Birthday Treats And Turning The Big 4 0.

Now if that is not sustainable, nothing is. Go me!! Ha, what do you think?

What I Wore: Royal Blue Dress: Asda years ago!! Thanks so much for stopping by here today. Also follow along on Instagram for more daily style.

    Oh my word can’t believe that for a bargain! My best one ever was a beautiful pink dress from a ‘swap’ party that cost me absolutely nothing!! It’s such a brilliant idea.

    I bought a dress from Asda for £1 a few years ago. It also washes beautifully, doesn’t need ironing and I get such joy from wearing it because of the price!!! You look lovely in your blue dress.
