I missed last month’s Five Under £5 with Rainbeaubelle, everyone had been ill at one point or another and we had barely left the house. I wanted to do better for May but I must admit it is a little last minute. I had a little wander round Asda doing my food shop this week and I did find a few extra things to bring a smile to my face.
The little fox and badger mugs I spotted in Asda for only £1 each! We don’t really need anymore mugs, as my husband pointed out, but they were so cute I couldn’t leave them behind. This is the danger of me looking in the home aisles when doing the food shop, I will inevitably come away with something I don’t need. I also bought these two mini Yankee Candle samplers. I tend to pick up a couple of these every time I go into Asda – they only cost £1 so I can afford to try a few out. These two are flowery scents but I mainly pick them for the spring colours. I know we are out of cosy night in season but I still enjoy having candles on in the house.
I popped into Paperchase a few weeks ago just to have a look at the sale and came away with yet more postcards and this cute little animal notebook. It was reduced to £1.75 and it is grid paper inside which I love! I’ve been hunting for grid paper notebooks for months as I’m dabbling with bullet journalling. I still haven’t committed to the whole thing yet but I’m doing the daily lists and adding other bits and bobs to keep track of things. This little notebook will be perfect for me to keep testing it out before I go for it properly and buy a proper journal.
Last, but probably my favourite, is the Forest Fruits tea from Aldi. I can’t remember how much it was but it’s definitely well under £5. It is in those fancy triangle tea bags and it smells so good when it’s brewing. I’m trying to cut down drinking real tea, I have way too many cups in the average day so I’m substituting a couple with this or green tea.
I know I’ve technically gone over the five here but I’m counting the candles and mugs as one. They still come under £5 together so I’m bending the rules a little!
