Fab Finds for Five Dollars

Hello lovely ladies,

Well you can't get much for $5 anymore can you?  Maybe a cup of coffee?  In the past couple of weeks, I've stumbled across a few things that I think are pretty fab for less than $5.  

Wrought iron bird garden stake. $5 - Bunnings

Hanging chalkboard sign.  Reduced from $10 to $5 - Typo

Mini chalkboard hanging signs $1.95 - Wheel & Barrow

Clearly with all that chalkboard, you need chalk $2.95 - Typo

I love these glossy laminated white board lever arch files for sorting out the paperwork $2 each - Officeworks

and to make them stylish, these Martha Stewart adhesive bookplates, slightly over budget at $5.49 for 3 - Officeworks

Finally to get into the Christmas spirit, a DIY Christmas cracker set complete with bad jokes, less than $3 - Spotlight.

So there you go, you can still find some fab things for less than 5 dollars.  If you've found any bargains lately, please share them with us.  At this time of year I'm always looking out for stocking fillers and small gifts.

  8. Hi Kylie,
    I've been wondering where to get those book plates from.
    I didn't know they were called book plates!
    I have an Officeworks just around the corner from me so I'm going to blow the budget and spend $5.49 x 2.
