A couple of weeks ago I set myself the task of buying replacement bedframe, sewing machine and vacuum cleaner for a mere £100. A day into the challenge two items had been ticked off the list. My lovely 'new' Dyson DC03 was secured from Ebay for a mere snippet over a tenner. Then the question posed to my work colleagues 'Does anyone out there have a sewing machine that they don't want anymore' yielded this hardworking beauty. I beat up the asking price of a tenner to twenty pounds in fairness to the seller, a process that bargain hunting Louis finds totally inconceivable.
Now it would be very easy to buy a bed for less than the remaining £69.50. There's a lovely iron one in Plymouth on Ebay at the moment with an asking price of fifty quid. But I've been having a good, hard think and decided that with limited storage what I'd really like is an ottoman bed. Then I'll have a home for all my camping gear which is currently house in random places including the motorhome. As the proposed Lovelygrey home doesn't have a loft my need for clever hidey holes just won't go away spending the extra now might just be a good long term investment.
