It’s been a long time since I joined in with Five under £5, the monthly link up that the lovely Julia runs over at Rainbeaubelle. The idea is that you showcase 5 things you have bought, each item costing under £5. So here are my 5 things I have bought over the past few weeks.

5 things under £5

Coat and bag

These are my 2 charity shop bargains from the past few weeks. I spotted the bag in a shop window last week, and when I saw the price of £1.99 I couldn’t resist (you can never have too many bags can you). Even though it is more of a summer colour, I think it goes really well with the coat.

Now I might be cheating here as it’s technically 5 things UNDER £5, and this coat was £5 exactly. Yes I managed to pick up a brand new woollen winter coat for just a fiver. And I love it for just wearing with jeans, or popping on for work.

Bath and shower gel

As well as never having enough bags, the same also goes for shower gel. On our way back from Scotland last week, we stopped at the outlet shopping centre in Gretna Green. There was a gorgeous bath and body shop there, and I picked up this bath and shower gel for £3.

I spotted this plaque in a shop in Stockton Heath, near to where we live.  It’s filled with an array of gorgeous items for the home, and a total bargain at only £3.99. As is customary in our house, the plaque will probably sit on the floor for around 6 months, until it finds it’s way onto a wall.

Candle Holder

And from the same shop I got this gorgeous candle holder in copper. And another bargain at only £3.50

  4. You are definitely great at finding bargains, I love all your buys. I never go in charity shops except to donate but the hub drags me in them to shop & we’ve found some great stuff for the boat.

      Thank you Claire, I have been wearing my coat today as it’s so cold isn’t it. The candle holder makes the room look so cosy when it’s lit in the evenings x

  6. I am super impressed that you got a coat in this month!! It’s really nice too, and so is the bag. I’m always buying shower gels when I see them and have a big collection now, at least I’ll never run out, haha!! X

      You can never have too much shower gel can you. I remember my nan used to stock pile toiletries and I think I take after her. I am loving the coat, especially today when it’s keeping me nice and warm x

  7. I love the bag but I just couldn’t pull off the colour.

  8. Wow I can’t believe you picked up an entire coat for £5, that’s amazing. And that bag is so lovely too!

      Thanks Tas. It has certainly been keeping me warm this past week. I bet you wish you had stayed in sunnier climates. It has been freezing since you got back x
