Thrifty Thursday: Ikea Bounty

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI decided to make up for some slightly slack blogging behaviour with not one, but two Thrifty Thursday posts today. This selection of bits and pieces are from my most recent foray into the land of  Ikea. So, I have a great love of Ikea’s solar lanterns, and I finally found a bag that’s the perfect size to fit them all in comfortably. It’s the Spana bag and it’s £10. Great for picnics too, as I’ve discovered during this sunny week in London and you can just hose it clean. Fabulous. It also comes in:

I fell for these Vegetarisk hemp cloths (70p) which are naturally antibacterial and don’t retain odours. And lastly, a Blaska dust pan (£1) because I noticed that our tent is getting full of twigs and old leaves and needs a bit of a sweep up on its next outing. Not a bad haul.
