A savvy shopper managed to bag £150 worth of items from Boots for just £16.82.
The 51-year-old, who who works in a retail store on the tills, said: “I managed to pick up gift sets, tea selections, shampoo and body scrub bars, and more. As the sale was 90% off I only paid £16 for a haul which was worth just over £150.”
Debbie’s first stop was the gift set aisle. “I got two Julien Macdonald Beauty Post Party kits, which were originally £20 each and got reduced to £2 each, saving me £36 in total.
“Each kit includes a luxe shimmer bath foam, a reviving sheet mask, a shower cap and eye mask.
“The next bargains were cosmetics, as I picked up two Kikki K gift sets featuring a hand cream and lip balm. These were originally £10 each and reduced to £1 each, so I saved £18 overall.
“While I was there I also noticed an eco-friendly cosmetics bag with a panda motif so I picked that up for just £1.40. It was originally £14 so I saved £12.60.”
Debbie didn’t stop there.
“As I kept looking I saw two Paxton & Pepper calm and reflective sleep gift sets. These were originally £12.50 each but I paid just £1.25 for each one, which means I saved £22.50.
“These include a sleep mask, an eye cream, a muscle soak bath salt and a pillow spray.”
The next bargains were also ideal for evening baths.
“I picked up some reduced BBC Earth products. I got two shampoo bars for just 80p each. Their original price was £8 each so I was lucky enough to save £14.40 on these.
“I also got some BBC Earth body scrub bars for under £1 – I paid just 60p each for two and as they were originally £6 each I saved £10.80.”
After all that bargain hunting Debbie no doubt wanted to go home to a cup of tea. Fortunately she picked up some Twinings tea sets on her way out.
“I got two boxes for just £1 each and they were originally £10 per item. In other words I saved £18 overall on these.”
Debbie revealed she’s no stranger to bargains.
“I’ve received a lot of discounts by getting email alerts for sales on Amazon and Shein, and also checking LatestDeals.co.uk for their daily messages. Their Facebook page also has some really good offers.
“In the past I have picked up a hairdryer for under £10 and an Amazon glitch meant I picked up 54 rolls of toilet paper for just £5.50.
“Being on a budget, I enjoy getting bargains that I can give to friends and family, or use myself as gifts or treats. I’m thrilled with this Boots haul and will be using the products as gifts for Christmas, birthdays and Easter, as well as for myself.
“With Boots, I tend to keep watching the sales as they start at 50% off and after a while it’s 70% off then finally 90%, which is when I go in to get a bargain haul.”
Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, said: “Keeping an eye out for sales will always pay off, as Debbie has proven. She paid just 11% of the original price for this haul – what an amazing set of bargains.
“Being savvy with your shopping and stocking up on discount items means you never run out of ideas for special occasions such as birthdays and Christmas.”
