I always refer to myself a ‘weekend millionare’ as I’m that friend who on a night out tends to go a little cray cray with the ole bank card splashing out on drinks and treating my friends. However lately I’ve found this also applies to my shopping habits. Over the past 18 months I’ve really taken to online shopping and boy, it is dangerous! It is so easy to click add to basket, enter a couple of numbers and 5-7 days later, Mum comes home from work (this is where everything get delivered to when we’re all out at work) with yet ANOTHER package that sometimes I don’t remember buying- yup that has happened! My bad! So, in a bid to curb my shopping habits, (but not all together, that’s just silly!) I am trying to shop a little smarter and more importantly, cheaper. And thats where Ebay comes into the equation.
I know in the blogging world, Ebay is raved about and my friend Natalie is a complete convert, but its taken me a while to get on board. My latest addition to my ‘Need’ list is a lunch bag for work. Quite boring but as I take my breakfast and lunch to work, including cutlery, bowls, sandwich boxes ect, cramming everything into my bag is a struggle and a carrier bag just doesn’t look the coolest does it? I know what kind of lunch bag I want but finding one in supermarkets and cheap pound shops have failed me so far, so I turned to Ebay. Luckily the site came up trumps.
I love all of the bags above, shame I only need to pick one! Think Ebay could spell trouble!
