Life | Pound World Haul

A new Pound World store has recently opened up in the concrete jungle of Croydon, and having recently tried to make a conscious effort to become a little more thrifty, I just had to pop in to see what was on offer. As the name suggests, everything inside is £1. ONE POUND I kid you not. It's unbelievable and of course I spent time in there browsing around the aisles looking for some bargains.

I've been to the 99p store (they come in plenty round Croydon town - says a lot about Croydon eh?) and the Poundland is just a little bit more organised and brighter. Of course it helps that they have super bright lights inside and what feels like a lot more staff trawling the aisles and putting items back into their space, but it made shopping in what should be a tip of disorganisation nicer than I thought.
Anyhoo, I'm rambling on a bit, so let's get into it!

  • Daily Defense Argan Oil Moisturizing Conditioner: I have never seen this brand before, and at £1, I'm not exactly breaking the bank. I am running out of shampoo/conditioner and I know Aldi has released what is in effect a dupe of the Aussie hair care, but I like the smell of this and we all know the hype that surrounds argan oil for your hair. Into the basket it went!
  • Kinder Bueno: Who doesn't like good chocolate and for three at £1, this was a bargain! Currently, it retails for 60p per bar, so buy three for £1 means I've saved 80p
  • Vaseline Aloe Vera: Gone are the days where I used to be able to buy Vaseline at 99p and since it retails for around the £2 figure, I basically got this for half price - win! 
  • Myleene Klass Nails: Oooh - now these are exciting! I've not tried using nail wraps, and at £1, what have I got to lose? Plus I'm saving 75p (Amazon are selling it at £1.75 here)
  • Macadamia Oil Extract Foot Pack: Let's be honest, I just bought this because it sounded fun! Oh and they're selling on eBay for £2.50. Whatevs.
  • Tea Tree Oil: Not pictured as I had already given this to the OH - only picked it up as the boy is breaking out in spots so this would be useful for him. Currently retailing at £2.99 from Amazon here
  • Minnie Mouse Nail Files: Nail files/emery boards are one of those items that I buy and becomes forever lost in my room. These are super cute and you get 3 for £1.
  • Radox Muscle Soak: I normally take a shower but there just some days that demands for a bath where I break out the Lush bath bombs (Avobath and Yuzu and Cocoa are my absolute favourites), and pour in a generous serving of this. Normally found closer to the £2 mark, they sometimes can be found at £1 each at Boots when there's a promotion on, but now I don't need to wait around for a promotion to grab the bottles at £1 each. 
8 items = £8.
