Cheap frills

One of my favourite sale buys this year is this cream cotton frilled tote bag from Gap (above left). I'd admired it all winter long, clocked the Liberty-print version for Gap's Product (RED) range at £25, and then somehow missed out on buying one altogether... until one day, sifting through the remnants of the sale, I found one lonesome bag, clipped onto a hanger as though it were an item of clothing. And what a bargainous sale find - reduced from £10 to £2.99! It's served me well ever since, being the ideal size for carrying magazines and carting around the overload that I can't fit into my handbag (umbrella, make-up bag, lunch...).

It's so good I'm tempted to buy another and this season's jersey version is very enticing. It is slightly pricier at £12.50, but you do get more fabric for your money as this time round the tote is lined. Plus, with Gap's 30% discount voucher valid from now until 4th May, you can bag yourself one of these cute totes for £8.75 (find the voucher at - Martin Lewis is my bargainista guru!). Obviously, with my love for all things in grey jersey, the plain one is a winner, but the stripy tote does look so summery. I think I'm going to have to have both!
