As many of you know I like to make things from scratch rather than buying them pre-bought and in order to do this sometimes you have to purchase useful equipment, moulds, cake tins etc to enable you to do this. However I am a tad tight and I do not believe in paying through the nose for things. One of the ways I do this is that I check out the pound shops on the off chance that they may actually have something useful and today I struck lucky. I popped into two pound shops today. In the first one I spent precisely £10.
I came away with:
Two Silicone Christmas Tree mould for chocolate, ice cubes or cookie mix. The mould can be used in the fridge/freezer or in the cooker. £2.
Two Packs of Silicone moulds one a snowman the other a christmas tree one in each pack and by buying two packs I have two of each. Again can be used in the fridge/freezer or the oven £2.
Two Packs of metal cookie cutters one pack consisting of 5 cutters including an Angel, star. bell, Christmas Tree, and Boot. £1
The second one consisting of four cutters including a gingerbread man, Christmas Tree. poinsettia flower and candy cane. £1
Two packs of cake sprinkles £1 each £2
A pack of 6 Christmas Reindeer Decorations in a red glitter £1
And finally a pack of plastic teaspoons which I intend to dip in chocolate and then serve with fresh brewed chocolate or coffee. They cost a fortune to buy but they are relatively easy to prepare yourself. £1
So you can do things cheaply with a little careful window shopping and planning and it will give me some playing time to let the inner child free.
