Bargains in the Stain and Plant departments.


Paid a visit to Poundstretcher again yesterday, and had a few more bargains.
Bought some more Cuprinol furniture stain. It will come in handy later in the year, and ready for next year.
£2.99, and it covers well.

Then saw this £5.99….5 litres…..

… and then saw this £9.99….9 litres…

Then went to Lidls and had a few more bargains.
Begonia 99p instead of £1.99….

….pretty peach….

…and Lavendula (Butterfly Lavender). £1.99 instead of £3.99…..

…. then found the perfect addition and partner for my stain….£14.99… also in Lidls.

So all in all, I think I had a good shopping day…..

Lol. Grandmage. I love Lidls too, and there's one just down the road from me.
Granddaughter and myself went over there today.
OH dropped us off before he took his Mum get her eyes sorted.
Ended up buying more than planned (with Granddaughter helping to fill the trolley) and couldn't carry it home, so had to get Taxi. Only cost £1.90, so that'll tell you how close I live to the shop. You can see my house from outside the store.
Best part was, I only went to get a magnifying glass, as I make jewellery, and older I get, the worse the eyes get. Lol.

That is always the way Lin. pop out for one thing and come back loaded and then forget what you popped out for!! Lol. The joys of ageing!

I get to the shop, and find I've forgotten my list.
When I've come home, I've found it in my pocket. lol. :o)

What a lot of lovely bargains that lavender was sooo cheap!

Thankyou Libet. This is the 3rd Lavender I've bought there recently. They sell them cheaper if they have any left, to make room for new stock, and sometimes they only need a good watering. :o)

Thankyou TT. I am pleased with what I bought. :o)

Thankyou Sixpence. I've already stained most of the furniture, with the tins I bought a couple of weeks ago.
Got the Trellis and a bit of fencing to do.
Hope the weather stays dry, as I've been trying to finish the weeding today, and cut my Red currant bushes back. :o)

Thankyou Nana d. I love Lavender, and would have a garden full of it, if OH would let. He probably would, being as I do all the gardening. Lol. :o)

You have been busy then hope the weather stays fine for you so you can finish.

Thankyou Sixpence.
Couldn't garden today as rain stopped play.
Ended up indoors, nursing a bad head.
