Bargain hunter #aldilove

Oh I do love a bargain and gain a great sense of achievement when I find a working discount code! I do have very expensive taste and ever since I was little would always much rather save up for one special item, than have ten of something else. Having said that when the thing you’ve got your eye on is just out of your price range, who wouldn’t want to hunt for a similar look at a fraction of the price? 
Aldi special buys:

I have got so much love for Aldi! Not just for it’s yummy antipasti and stone baked pizzas but also for its one off special buys. Jo Malone is an absolute favourite of mine and I’m very lucky to have built up quite a collection, but my candles are so special I find myself not wanting to actually burn them! They sit there looking pretty (right next to the lovely fluffy display towels that are not to be used haha!) BUT worry no more as all of my favourite Jo Malone fragrances have been copied by Aldi and made into candles and diffusers for just £3.99! So I can now fill my home with lime basil and mandarin and not break the bank!

This week I have found the perfect toy bag for Beau’s monochrome themed playroom. These road map bags are soooo similar to those by Playandgo, which are featured on all of my favourite Scandi style websites but the Aldi bag is less than half the price at £12.99. They come in three different designs too so get them before they disappear!

The Aldi version fits perfectly in Beau’s monochrome playroom!

They also have so many beautiful wooden play kitchen bits in store at the moment giving Great Little Trading Company a bit of competition!

Aldi is definitely a place to go with an open shopping mind as you never know what treasures you will stumble upon. Last year I found this great lamp which is not dissimilar to those in Oliver Bonas (I actually prefer the Aldi version with the marble base.)

Beau and his retro ride.

On the subject of shopping for bargain versions. This retro car would make a great Christmas present. Beau loves scooting around the kitchen on it or pretending to fix the wheels with his little tool box! Halfords sell this for £50 at the moment, which is half the price of others I have seen and apart from the number, it is almost identical.

Style bargains…..two of my favourite words! 

Happy shopping!
