The bags made me do it

Today we had to go and look for a new fridge freezer.

Ahhhhh, the glamour.

I can think of a bajillionty things I’d rather do on a Saturday, but our old one has been on the blink for ages and is finally giving up the ghost and leaking like a sieve.

We’d already looked them up on line but I wanted to check it out “in person” before parting with The Husband’s hard earned cash, so we headed off to the local retail park. Thankfully it wasn’t too busy, and a decision on the fridge freezer was quickly made.

A few doors down from the electrical store is a TK Maxx. Β It’s a store that I normally avoid like the plague as it’s a bit too jumble sale-y for my taste, but we decided to pop in to see if we could get some cheap workout gear. They didn’t have any, but what they did have was these two beauties:



I couldn’t resist!

With 60% off the retail price it would have been rude not to.

So I didn’t.

    I really like the little red purse.

    I hope your new fridge lasts a really long time.

    • The little red one is perfect for throwing keys/phone/purse in for walking to and from school or just nipping errands when I need to keep my hands free. I’m thrilled with it!
      Fingers crossed on the fridge. I really begrudge spending good bag/shoe/fabric money on stuff like that! πŸ˜‰

  3. Well you only bought two;) I love bags (and shoes) so I totally understand how you couldn’t resist. Nice color choice!

    TK Maxx is always dangerous, you enter begrudgingly looking for one thing and come out with a great deal on something else you didn’t even know you needed! Luckily (or unfortunately) we don’t have the chain in Belgium, but I always seem to end up visiting when I am in the UK!
