Incredible Value for Money at The Works

Incredible Value for Money at The WorksFor those of you unfamiliar with The Works Stores, they are like stepping inside an Aladdin’s cave of bargains. Be it books, CDs, DVDs, toys, games, calendars, diaries, stationery or arts and crafts supplies, The Works is a one stop shop for gifts that won’t break the bank.

I pride myself on my thrift radar, and have picked up many a great value present from The Works in the past. Far from being pound shop junk, they always have a fab selection of unique items, as well as being well stocked with whatever the latest kids craze is.

For the (still) Frozen mad they have a vast array of Elsa & Anna themed bits and bobs. My eldest spied a chapter book of the film, and is very excited about reading it (wonder what will happen!) They also have tons of Minion goodies, which is fantastic news for our 5yo nephew who is crazy about the little yellow dudes. Whatever your kids are into, I can almost guarantee they will have something suitable for them. 

They currently have 2 for £10 on a huge range of children’s sets and games, and books starting from just £1. In one shopping trip I managed to cross six people off the Christmas pressie list, and added an extra token gift to another four. In addition to this I stocked up on our card making supplies, and bought a 500ml bottle of pva glue for the same price that a 150ml bottle cost last time.

    I’m always shocked with how far money is stretched in this place, and it’s really not just cheap tut either, lots of branded items that would cost double elsewhere!
