Money-savvy shoppers have spotted one of this year’s most popular garden accessories being sold at a discounted price at Home Bargains this week.
Have you seen the garden rugs trend taking off in recent months?
Kitting a patio, decking, or backyard area out with a decorative rug that’s usually seen inside a home may have seemed like a pretty bizarre thing to do a couple of years back – but it’s a design trend that’s been gaining a lot popularity recently. And it doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon.
As we’ve been treated to a few spells of dry weather, warm temperatures and sporadic sunshine here in Greater Manchester over the past couple of weeks, this obviously means we’ve been spending more time relaxing in our gardens.
Luckily, Home Bargains has slashed the price of its The Outdoor Living Collection: Outdoor Garden Rug – Grey just in time for the summer.
While the must-have garden accessory does appear to be out of stock on the retailer’s website at the moment, it has however appeared in the ‘Star Buys’ section in a Home Bargains store.
And it’ll only set you back £19.99.
A photo of the cut-price garden rug was shared on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook this week – going on to rack up thousands of interactions and comments.
Although the shopper did not share where she saw the bargain, it still seems like many are eager to head to their local Home Bargains branch in the hopes they’re lucky enough to find it anyway.
One shopper commented: “Love mine, it fits in perfectly [and it’s] so cheap.”
Another added: “I have purchased two of these and they are lovely”, with a third offering the tip that they’re “great for indoors too when you have pets” as they’re “easy to clean”.
He was banned, then apologised, and now all seems to be forgiven.
But the internet does not forgive so easily.
At the time of writing, England vs USA is drawn 0-0.
Here are some of the tweets that sum up why James Corden is trending tonight:
You can buy half Christmas trees so you don’t have to decorate the full thing
December is nearly ready for rolling around once again.
It’s time to reach out the decorations out and get into the festive spirit, but for those who’d consider themselves a bit lazy, there’s an invention that could be a life saver, and it’s quite honestly genius.
You can now buy ‘half Christmas trees’ – otherwise known as or ‘against the wall Christmas trees’.
Unless your tree’s going to placed in front of a street-facing window for rafts of passers-by to see on a daily basis, it can be really tempting to just not decorate the back of it at all, right? The faff off trying to evenly-distribute strings of lights, tinsel and baubles around a full tree is often a lot more trouble than it’s worth, especially when it’s not going to be properly seen anyway.
Some would probably say it’s pointless, and it’s this thought that has presumably prompted companies to start selling these ‘half Christmas trees’.
If you’re wondering what a ‘half Christmas tree’ is, it’s basically exactly as it sounds – half a tree.
Half Christmas trees – which are also a great option for those with slightly less space to dedicate to seasonal decorations – are available in various places, and for all manner of budgets, so it should be fairly easy to get your hands on one this festive season.
According to the product description on the Very website: “This may look like a regular Christmas tree, but it’s been cleverly designed so that one side is completely flat, so no matter how limited your space might be, you and your family can still enjoy the magic of having a tree in your home,”
“Standing an impressive 6ft tall and featuring 511 tips for a lush look, you can stand it flat against the wall to save on valuable floor space,
“It also means you don’t have to worry about any of your favourite decorations being out of sight at the back”.
If you’re looking for something a little cheaper though, then there’s plenty of different options available on eBay and Amazon too, and our pick for this would be the vidaXL Artificial Half Christmas Tree – which is currently being sold on eBay by a number of different sellers for prices starting at £24.
