Pound shop haul

My first time shopping on http://www.poundshop.com

There is a huge selection on this site, from washing up detergent to birthday cards.  I bought a few things and thought I’d share them with you.

This is the box I received. It was filled with packaging and everything was in perfect condition.

I have quite a few items and yes each one cost just £1. I have gone in to this very open minded and not thinking ” they are cheap, they’ll be crap”. Right then, let’s get stuck in.

They have quite a selection of makeup, it would have been rude not to get some, I will do a separate blog on this makeup in the future. A couple of things came as a two pack, hence why I have two of some products. Here I have, lip gloss, liquid eyeliner, contour crayons, liquid lipstick and eyebrow powders. The lipgloss is marked as £2.50, but they were £1.

Next up I got a selection of birthday cards, we are always having to rush out when we realise there’s a birthday coming up, to buy a card and thought as we have a lot of birthdays throughout the year it’d be a good idea to have a stock at home and to be honest they are really nice cards, pretty good quality and great designs. I’m very happy with these I have to say. For £4 (I accidentally ordered two of the same box)I’ve more than enough birthday cards.

This year I have been reorganising each room, so I’ve needed some storage baskets to help keep things neat and organised. These plastic baskets are brilliant, they hold quite a bit and they sit side by side perfectly in the cupboards, I use these ones for keeping the cupboard under the kitchen sink tidy, I’ve cleaning products and such like in them. They are good quality and do the job nicely.

More storage baskets and these come as a two pack. They are small and perfect for putting side by side in the kitchen cupboard, where I’m using them to store things like packets of rice and noodles. Again these are good quality.

Not a necessity but when I saw them, I had to have them. These are the cutest tealight candles I’ve ever seen. I got some for my friend too as I thought she’d like them. I do not think I can bring myself to burn them however, so they are displayed round my house and I think they look great.

Always handy to have a gift bag and with my friends birthday coming up soon, this will do nicely. It’s really lovely and again very good quality. I love how these gift bags can be reused, just remember not to write on the label.

The final item is a twin pack of makeup remover wipes. I have used these and they definitely get the job done. So I’m very happy with them.

Well that’s it for my little poundshop haul. I have to say I am very happy with every item and will definitely be making another order from them in the future.

Bye for now.
