Magpie Monday - Lovely Pair of Jugs

Bit of a mixture this week for Magpie Monday. I got myself a nice pair of jugs (of the glass variety). The large one is great for keeping juice nice & cold in the fridge. It holds about a litre of juice and cost me £1.

The second jug is a smaller one, great for milk or maple syrup. I love it as its so retro looking. It was also £1.

I did some shopping on amazon for second hand books for my 12 year olds homeschooling. I was thrilled to get a good stash of books for £20 inc delivery.

Every now and then we get a power cut and I keep saying that I must get one of those candle holders that you can walk around with. I picked one up for £1, inc a pretty pink candle for 50p.

Did you get any bargains this week? Pop over to Lizzie's place and check out who did.

  1. That candle holder is just the prettiest thing ever.

    Have to say it though - nice jugs!

  2. I love the holder and candle great find x

  3. Nice jugs ;) Amazon is good for selling books too, my OH has been flogging his old college books on there.

  4. Great jugs! I have a load of books I keep meaning to 'trade in' on Amazon, just need to find a big enough box and be bothered to haul them to the post office!

  5. What great finds! The candle and stick are just right for a wandering the dark. And I echo the comments about nice jugs!!!!

  6. I love the candle holder, i always pick them up when i see them being sold cheaply, i have a collection on my landing windowsill for power cut emergencies (although i must admit i sometimes light the candles and turn off the lights just to pretend - so cosy!!)

    (i participated in the magpie monday linky too)

  7. No more jug jokes, though they are a great shape :)
    I'm just about to pop over to Amazon to have a look for some secondhand maths books for my son, so thanks very much for the reminder x
