Your Friendly Neighbourhood Pound Shop

I've never really been one for frequent pound shops. But I kept coming across bloggers who would get really good bargains from them.

The pound shops in my area never seemed to have such good bargains... until recently (and I'm talking specifically about Poundland here - although there are other pound shops out there).

One of the bloggers that first alerted me to the goodies to be found at the pound shop was Terri Lowe who actually blogged recently about one of the products I recently bought.

So here is what I got on my last couple of trips:

I got the Revlon Chroma Chameleon polishes in 'Aquamarine', 'Cobalt' and 'Topaz'. And the Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips in 'All-A-Flutter' and 'Checker Out'.

Now I had a couple of the Revlon polishes already and I've used the Sally Hansen strips before as seen in this post.

The Revlon polishes retail at £6.49 and the Sally Hansen strips should be £7.99.

So if I had bought these products at a regular cosmetic selling place it would have cost me £35.45 instead of £5.

I love a good bargain!

Worth doing. I have hardly ever been in a dollar store here, but I believe the bargains are fantastic. I didn't even know there were pound store, that makes everything about twice as expensive to me of course.
