Garden thriftiness! #magpiemonday

The sun was shining brightly, and the carboots were heaving..so our Sunday morning started in style! We are slowly doing up our garden, and I have been desperate to find garden furniture but with a minimal budget I have a minimal choice. Being pregnant, the fabric and metal framed furniture has not appealed, as I fear I will land on the floor..(ok I may not have gained that much weight, but I feel as though I have!) and the sturdier furniture is more than my budget will stretch to at the moment! So it was with huge excitement I spotted this very ordinary plastic garden chair, and with great glee I handed over £4.50! The chair is sturdy and reclines, best bit…I saw a brand new cushion which will fit it perfectly at a charity shop on Friday so I’m hoping it might still be there later today! 

I went on to buy two of these for 50pence each..

They’re insulated coca-cola glasses, with a lid and slide top so you don’t have to worry about a) spillages or b) bugs in the glass! They were sealed and brand new, and while I’ve never been on the Royal Caribbean cruise ships I can recline on my new chair sipping an ice cold drink pretending to be sailing away somewhere exotic all from the comfort of my garden!

Linking up with the lovely Liz for Magpie Monday, do check it out if you love a thrifty bargain!
