Cheaper than Chips - Frugal Plant Holder

I thought these little baskets from Wilko's would solve the problem of not being able to afford window boxes at the moment.   They are from the bathroom section and I guess they are for holding shampoos and stuff like that.   They are only £3.00!  I only got one in case it didn't work, but I think I'll go and get some more.

Great Second Hand Furniture Place, Tottenham

I am singing the praises of Kith & Kids (formerly Mencap) in Tottenham (next to Sainsbury's) because for years they have been supplying me with excellent second hand furniture.  If you enjoy stripping pieces down or just enjoying them in all their ageing glory, this is a great place.  Their stuff changes all the time so one day you might go and be disappointed and the place may look a bit bleak, the next day you may find just what you are looking for and there's stacks of things.  You…
