Here are just some of the bargains that I have picked up for the refurb I mentioned a while back.
The front door is tiny, so the only way to get sofas in is through a window or build them in the house. We took the second option so turned to second hand Nabru sofas. Nabru is a cool brand of sofas that can fit into any space. The sofas new would have cost me close to £700 and we even managed to pick the green one up in our car! You can pick up sofas much, much cheaper especially on Facebook, but size and getting into the space is a problem for me. These sofas can be disassembled easily, you can reassemble them super quickly and you can buy new covers for them from £70.…

I wanted to try out a few different online grocery shopping experiences and now it’s Asda’s turn. I have booked my £2.50 delivery at Sunday lunchtime for 2 – 4 pm on Monday.
Asda states that it has over 1,000 discounted items so I was keen to get my bargain grocery shopping underway. I ordered over £133 worth of shopping across 82 items. I managed to buy about £33 on offers, the rest of my shop was full price.

3. Fantastic delivery slot availability.
1. Alphabetically arranged items when I shoppped on my mobile, not sure if that works, as I saw Chinese, then chocolate biscuits. …
