Yankee Candle Haul - Bargains Galore

Although my original plan for this weekend was to finish my Christmas shopping, I seemed to buy myself about just as many goodies as I picked up for others. Whilst I'd usually be mad at myself for buying things I don't actually need, I can't be, because I found some great bargains! Lets be real, who doesn't love a bargain?

The first "section" of my main shopping haul that I'm going to reveal is this Yankee Candle selection. I picked up every single item you see here for £41.21. They would usually cost in excess of £70! 

The three large jars I purchased were Baby Powder, Summer Scoop and Waikiki Melon. Baby powder has always been one of my favourite scents, and summer scoop has lately become a favourite so they were in my shopping basket before I even realized what I had done. I took a sniff of Waikiki Melon and it put me instantly into a paradise world. I paid £10 for Baby Powder. Then I found summer scoop and Waikiki melon in the Debenhams sale for £12 each.

Next I picked up these wax melts. Again, these are in summer scoop scent. I know, why would one person need so many things that smell of summer scoop? Well I guess because it really is that good! These wax melts were down from £2 for £1.11. I don't really know why, all I can imagine is because it's more of a summer scent and they're making room for the Christmas collection. I only hope it's not being discontinued.

Moving on to the Home Sweet Home jar wax melts. Although they are crumbled and look a bit of a mess, these were only 50p so that's totally ok. I didn't even notice these until I heard a customer say "what good is that to anybody, it's ruined", so I went to have a look and wondered if she even realized what she had just said. The wax melts are exactly that. Wax that you melt... so it was never going to stay in a jar formation for long. 

My last Yankee Candle haul item is this little votive candle in a box. This wasn't on sale but I bought it for a little prank. My mother in law has been asking for Yankee Candles for Christmas, so I thought it would be quite funny to give her this little one before showing her the large ones I've actually got her. I'm evil, I know!
