Saying you got a bargain from Poundland is stating the bleedin’ obvious, because everything is a pound, obvs!
The point of me calling these things bargains is that they would have cost more elsewhere, therefore they’re bargains in the true sense of the word, and not just in context of Poundland.
When I was a kid, going into somewhere like Poundland would have been the height of embarrassment, the stuff of “look around, hope none of your friends see you and run in quickly” nightmares. Strangely, when my brother and sister were younger (there’s a 20 year difference), Poundland had developed an almost cult following among kids, who’d often request to go in after school knowing full well they’d come out with something like a cheap toy or some chocolate. After all, who can say no to spending a pound?
These days I’m all about the bargain, although going in for one thing and coming out £16 lighter isn’t exactly economising, but still. I blame the owners for diversifying so much – they now do make up, jewellery and nail varnish so it’s easy to just pick up a few extra bits.
Anyway, I digress.
Here’s what I bought:
Peacock feather earrings – because, peacock feathers!
Leopard print crinkle scarf – because leopard print!
Enamel bangle – the stones are a pretty pale pink
Silver lurex skinny scarf – ideal for adding interest to an all black outfit (I’m thinking black cami, leather trousers and pointy heels)
