261/365 Today I…found a bargain

Today I…have been shopping early for Christmas !
My workmate and I thought we might decorate the office with a Christmas tree (in December), but we don’t have a budget for such things.
I noticed some Xmas decs at the local recycling centre at the weekend so popped along there at lunchtime for a look. I was really pleased to find a 5ft artificial tree for a fiver- in really good condition with a box. I also picked up some lights ( pat tested for safety) some brand new baubles still in the original packaging – colour coordinated of course – and some tinsel all for £5.
So for just £10 our office will be festive for the Christmas period, ( potentially for future years too), we will also be recycling items that still have lots of life in them and would have gone to landfill.
Saving money and the planet! Result!
