Monthly Treats : The Confessions of a Financially Unstable Female #11

I posted a small Primark haul earlier on in the month, you can view that here. I've bought a few other things this month and figured it would be rude not to share my bargains with you guys! 


I picked up this dress in the Primark sale for a bargain £7, it also came with a thin brown belt that I am not wearing in this picture.


We bought two of these heart shaped bowls for our Wedding sweet table and I stupidly smashed one. I decided to buy another three to make a set of four which ended up working perfectly as they were on a 3 for 2 offer. They cost £4 each from Wilko's so with the current offer they will set you back £8 for three.


My hair towels are so thin and useless now as I've had them for years, they're just something that I never think of replacing. While shopping with my sister in Primark she bought one of these so I picked one up to, I haven't used it yet but if it holds well I will buy another couple. You can't go wrong for £1.50.

This cute little cupcake kit was in the Primark sale for £1, I love the little cake toppers. I wish I'd picked up a few more now.


A bra for £2.50! I knew Primark was cheap but I didn't realise they did bras for this price. I still haven't worn this yet, as with the towel if I like it I will buy a few more.

I saw this t-shirt on Katie's blog and had to get one myself. It comes from the Offset Warehouse and costs just £4.99 (or £9.99 with a £5 donation to charity, £14.99 with a £10 donation). All profits go to supporting garment workers world wide.


I have a tiny kitchen and struggle to fit everything in the cupboards. Things like this collapsible colander are perfect for me. I bought this from eBay £3.95 for one or £4.95 for two. I bought two with the plan of putting one with my car boot sale stuff, I ended up giving it to a friend.

What have you been buying this month? Have you found many bargains?
