€10 Challenge: Primark

I have a problem, quite a serious problem which is the hole in my hand… This is why I have decided to try a new challenge the €10 challenge. Every month I will go to a different store to see how much €10 will get me. The only rule that I do have is that I can only buy things which might be useful. I could spend €10 on cotton swabs but that defeats the purpose. This week I start off with one of the stores that I have a love-hate relationship with: Primark. Last week the weather was really good meaning that I was practically melting so I decided to go to Primark to see whether they had some cute shorts. Also I wanted to check out their scented candles because I had heard good things about them.


As I walked through the store I found several cute shorts, sadly for me non of them fit right. I then decided to check-out the sleepwear section of the store. I found a cute pair of sleep shorts there the last time. I figured that if I could not find a normal pair of shorts I could try for a new pair of pj-pants. I found these black and white ones with cute pink ruffles. I could definitely wear them during the day as well.

Price: €3,-


Next I got some scented stick because mine have been gone for quite some time now. I smelled all the candles and finally decided to go with this one. The fragrance Raspberry & Vanilla was the one that I liked the most. The scent is quite sweet and at the moment I have put it in the kitchen since that area needs it more than my room. Especially at such a price I think the value is great.

Price: €1,50


I also decided to get two scented candles which I could use when I am not home for that long. I do not like the idea of wasting my Yankee Candle for such short periods of time. Besides the packaging is super cute! I went with Sea Salt & Lavender which is really nice and Madagascan Vanilla which is a sweeter and more subtle scent. I have only lit the No. 4 and I could not really tell it was on but I am battling a cold at the moment so at this point it is too early to pass a judgement.

Price: €1,- each


When I saw this gadget a little while ago I was really curious to try it out. At the time I did not have a lot of money so I figured I would come across it at some point. When I tried it it did not seem too work, it slid right off of the top. But maybe it would have helped if I would wrap the cord around the thing itself. I will try and see if that works.

Price: €2,50


Finally, I had been looking for a smaller wallet for quite some time now. Now when I go out I just dump the money straight into my purse but experience has show that this is quite inconvenient (expect for when I am broke, I will just go through my clubbing clutch and mysteriously find money, not always in the right currency though). So as I was walking through the Primark my eye fell on their sale section where they had these cute wallets. I figured it would be big enough for the things that I would need in there and while it was not the most appealing wallet it really did not cost too much. I have tried and tested it and I’m really happy with my tiny wallet.

Price: sale from €3,- to €1,-
