I love me a little shopping expedition to Poundworld and I'm not afraid to admit it. There's something utterly thrilling and decidedly satisfying about grabbing yourself a cheeky bargain! I often frequent aforementioned store for cheap and cheerful baking supplies such as piping bags and cupcake boxes and the large majority of my toiletries and household goods are also Poundworld purchases - branded goods I know I can get for less.
Since the recession hit we Brits have become increasingly cash-conscious and shopping savvy. Whereas before conversations may have revolved around how much we paid for our new car or which flash holiday destination we're jetting off to next we're now eager to talk about how much we have saved and we excitedly share our knowledge of special offers and discounted goods. And long may it continue - nobody is above saving a buck or two!
Poundworld's appeal has been proven to cross the socio-economic divides and is enjoyed by adults and children alike. Children like Bonnie and Jessica! These two gorgeous gals are the daughters of my neighbour, Heather -a.k.a. Hezza my Bezza - and knowing them both to be avid Poundworld fans I decided to issue them a fun, little shopping challenge: to see what they could pick up for £10 in 10 minutes!
The girls zealously rose to the challenge and happily scurried from aisle to aisle in search of the best buys. What did they end up with? You'll just have to watch the video to find out! And I defy you to not laugh out loud at Jessica's one liners - I have a feeling I may have discovered a future presenting star!
