Why I love Poundland, especially at this time of year

I am a huge lover of Poundland.  As a thrifty Mum how can I not be?  I used to love going in with my Mum and looking for bargains and know that it is the place to look before shopping at most of the other stores.

They recently gave me £20 in vouchers and asked me to go shopping for Christmas and I was delighted with what I got.

Horrid Henry Books x 2 - £1 each Perfect for the boys friends for Christmas
Find the Meerkat book - £1 for my Where's Wally loving Maxi
Fantastic Red felt table mats x 6 - £1 each
Red felt coasters x 4 - £1 for all  four
3 cadbury selection boxed - £2 (three for two), gifts for the boys little friends
A giant candy cane - £1 for Mini's stocking
Cupcake cases x 100 - £1 for a gift
Haribo pack - £1 - perfect stocking fillers
Batteries - £1 a pack.  Why go anywhere else and they last too.
Chocolate coins x 2 -  £1 a pack for the boys Christmas Eve Bag.
Lightening Wire - £1 for a certain christmas present.

I have been unwell and in hospital for the last week and have really missed out of getting bits and pieces for the boys stockings and all my wrapping from Poundland.  They have had some great Christmas stuff in this year. I wish I could have got a couple of Christmas Elves delivery bags in my local store.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
