This happens to me rarely, but i love it. It happened to me a few weeks ago when I decided to buy some of the new John Frieda hair range . . . and discovered at the checkout it was buy one get one free. And I already had two in my hand. Woohoo!
|Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Oh . . . wait . . . it's definitely a bird... necklace!|
And tonight it happened again. Wanting some retail therapy in a desperate sort of way, I found myself in Dorothy Perkins (or Dotty Ps, as I like to call it). I couldn't find any dresses I liked but I spotted some jewellery - a pretty bracelet and a bird necklace. Both were £8.50 but I decided, L'oreal style, that I was worth it (insert hair toss and smug smile here).
So up I headed to the counter, where the woman rang up the sale and informed me that the necklace was in fact only . . . wait for it . . . ONE POUND!!!
I thought perhaps I had misheard but no! It really was! To add to my unexpected good fortune, the bracelet was also three pounds cheaper than expected. What SHOULD have been a 17 pounds bill was in reality only £6.50!!!
Ah.... retail therapy! How I love you.
Still feel kinda shitty, but at least I can wear pretty things while I feel that way!
What's the last unexpected bargain (or ANY bargain!) you found?
