Aldi Bonfire Night Special Buys

Just a quick post today to share some info the lovelies at Aldi sent over about their Bonfire Night special buys. If you are looking to host a display of your own this year then keep your eyes on Aldi as between the 15th and 18th October these fireworks  will be on offer, including the very thoughtful pet-friendly ones which are all colour and no bang.

As much as I love autumn and winter (I really do!) I’m the first to admit that with a whole host of seasonal events going on that it can be one of the more expensive times and so I’m happy to share anything that might help you all save a few pennies or even pounds here and there!

Upcycling a Lego Play Table

upcycling, repurposed

This weekend’s first to do item on my list was to crack on with turning a Lego play table into a stationery table / craft storage table and work space.

I picked the Lego table up at an NCT nearly new sale a year or so ago for £5 and for a short while the kids used it. Neither boy uses it anymore, Kieran having more technical Lego and Taylor not being that fussed at the moment (and when he is he’ll inherit boxes of the stuff plus accessories galore).

Recently it’s been used as a 4yr old’s bedside table (dump area) and so I decided to upcycle it for myself. I hate waste and this is a much more thrifty / frugal way of storing my stationery etc than buying a specially made caddy or similar  that is marketed for this same purpose yet costs a small fortune.

A quick wipe down and sort out  and voila, we have a repurposed Lego table turned stationery storage and crafting station.

What do you think?
