Five Under £5 – February

I love the Five under £5 idea and thought I’d do a proper post as last month I linked up a random post that wasn’t actually meant for the linky – OOPS. I love the idea of sharing things that don’t cost an arm and a leg and it’s no secret that I adore a bargain!

February whilst not as crap as January, it’s still pretty rubbish. But what makes it more bearable is the tail end of all the Christmas sales and I managed to get some utter bargains that I totally didn’t need but did need – you know the things! I apologise for the photos – taking them on a day of torrential rain is never good!


Our front window sill is painfully empty and we have no photos in our lounge so I thought I’d change that. These photo frames were just £1.95 each and I just love the rustic look which hopefully will also mask grubby finger stains that they will no doubt pick up in no time by two little monkeys.


Who doesn’t need a pretty tray? This was just £1 and while will be used probably about 4 times ever, I love the prettiness of it. Blue tits are a necessity right?


These were ones I simply could not resist! Only £1 (I’m saying that a lot aren’t I?!) but these are cute mini magnets. I fell in love with them and they are doing a very import job such as holding up my Slimming World certificate. Very important job don’t you agree?!IMG_5691Again, I’m not quite sure where this is going to go but little bird coat hooks that were £4.95 will find themselves a home. They are such a gorgeous green colour with four very sweet little birds. I’m thinking possibly in the girls room, but I need to work out where their bookcase will (eventually) go.


This was probably my favourite of all five as the rustic look is so cute. Must find somewhere for them to live as soon as possible.

Finally, the crappy weather means that I’m desperately looking to spring so a nice cheap bunch of tulips to brighten up the kitchen were just what I needed to make me smile after a pants week.

    I love that blue tit tray, surely you will get more than four uses from it? And the bird coat hooks are super cute. Good luck with your slimming world success.

    The flowers are such a gorgeous colour, and they are needed at this time of year when it’s a bit dull. I am totally in love with the bird coat hooks, too nice to put coats on though! Sorry to hear you’ve had a rubbish week Beth, nearly the weekend *kind of* xxx

    Spring is the perfect time of year to treat yourself to some fresh flowers, whenever I go the shop I pick up a bunch of daffodils or tulips and they always cheer me up. The little bird hooks are really cute, I couldn’t have resisted either! #fiveunder5
