I've recently had some really amazing purchases, collectively everything in this post cost £6.94 - not bad!

Recently I've had an afternoon tea for my friends hen party. The girls spotted these Mason Drinking Jars and picked up four from Home Bargains for just 69p each. I headed there and picked up my own soon after. They don't feel cheap either, which really impressed me. The glass is quite thick, with the only downside being the paper straw. Am I the only one who HATES paper straws? I just don't like how they feel in my mouth, so I picked up a pack of normal straws for pennies!

Next door to my local Home Bargains is Matalan, which had been transformed into a clearance store. Everything was in the sale and these sunglasses were £5, down to - 50p.! Yes, just 50p. Amazing. I picked up two other styles for 50p and it felt very strange going to the till for a basket totalling £1.50. 

A routine trip to Tesco was enlightened by finding that all of their stationery was on a back to school discount. This immediately made the shopping trip about a billion times longer than it should have been.  The diary was half price at £2.25! Since school I have been stuck on an academic year diary style and this one - at a day per page - was exactly what I was looking for. I also totally copied my work neighbour in buying this. Oops. Finally the pens - oh the pens! Down to just £3.50 there was no way I was leaving without them, they did stop me from buying the 28 sharpies reduced down to £7 haha. 

What bargains have you bought recently?
