Bargain Hunter: Put a spring into your cleaning
Saturday 19 February 2011
Spring is in the air, and the crocuses are out. What better way to celebrate the turning seasons than with a few fair-weather bargains? Spring cleaning doesn't have to cost the earth – especially when Sainsbury's has slashed the price of washing-up liquid, bleach and soap. Save 25 per cent on Fairy liquid, and get two bottles of home-brand toilet cleaner for £1.10. Bottles of Carex Nature Protect Manuka Handwash, meanwhile, are better than half price at 71p.
No one does cute homeware like Bouf. And with their sale about to end, now is a good time to stock up. A particular favourite is the Fields of Blue cutlery set – now down to just £29.95. And if that doesn't tickle your fancy, take a look at the bags. White Feather bags are now available with 30 per cent off. For the full range visit www.bouf.com
A host of cut-price perennials
If you fancy getting into the garden and making the most of the rising temperatures, you may be considering planting some new flowerbeds. The Let's Go Gardening website is offering a host of deals, including – our favourite – a bumper pack of perennials for just £14.99. That's down from £34.99.
Let Clarks foot the difference
Time to clear out that cupboard? You could do worse than revamping your shoe collection with Clarks. The British favourite is currently offering 10 per cent off all styles bought online. Simply enter "BEFASHION" when prompted at the payment stage of your purchase, and the price will be promptly reduced.
Luxury meals up for grabs
Finally, if all that pre-spring cleaning has left you feeling peckish, why not enter this competition for the chance to win a luxurious meal at London's prestigious Cinnamon Club? To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the restaurant that reinvented Indian fine dining will host a spectacular 10-course dinner on 21 March. All places are allocated by lottery; all you need to do is register at www.cinnamonclub.com to be in with a chance of winning one of 50 pairs of tickets.
