At home: Savvy hacks with The Reject Shop

Brought to you by Nuffnang and The Reject Shop.

Have you been to The Reject Shop lately? I pop in and out frequently as it’s right next door to my local supermarket. Every time I visit I always discover something new and different to buy. How can you not when it’s such a good price?!

Last week I was given a challenge to get creative and savvy with their products and use them for things other than what they may appear. I was totally up for that and I off I went shopping with my little basket in hand…

Here’s what I purchased. My mind was ticking over as I brought them home and popped them on my kitchen bench…
1

What I purchased:

  • Mason jar mounted to wood – $8
  • Bread board – $12
  • 2 x small light globe vases $5 each
  • Gift tags – $3
  • Paper straws – $2
  • Bathroom door hook – $3
  • LED party globes – $25

Here’s what I did with them!

1. Use a bread board in the bathroom

See, boring bathroom! I have used trays before and I never seem to like them – they’re either too big or too deep.

The bread board sits perfectly and looks great. What a bargain!

2. Party lights + bathroom wall hook for kids room

How cute are these lights? I love a good party globe. These clear ones were inexpensive and run via battery so I was even happier when I didn’t have to plug it in to power – this means I can hang them wherever I like.

On the back of the wall hook were some metal brackets which I took off very easily with a screw driver.

22 I just mounted the hook with some blu-tak as it was light and could be removed easily if needed.

Such a cute little addition to his bedroom – actually I am going to add a set of these to another room.

3. Light globe vase

How cool are these light globes? I collected a selection of them. I popped the fairy lights (from above) in one of them (the globes on the fairy lights just pop off as they are only plastic). I also gathered some flowers from my garden…

4. Mason jar in the bathroom

Here’s a cute mason jar I mounted to the bathroom wall and popped a few complimentary hotel products in them (who doesn’t love a good bathroom hotel goodie! Ha!). Here’s the perfect thing for them. I loved this once I got it up on the wall. You can use this wall mounted mason jar for any kind of makeup too.

    Id update and re-energise our recently turned 17 yr old sons bedroom. A pop of colour, a print for the wall to make the cave more of a modern retreat… He probably would never emerge but hey it would be a haven for him… ❤️

    I just bought my first home with my partner and would use $100 to make it beautiful and homey with all those extra little touches. I’m absolutely loving the bright pops of colour that The Reject Shop has in store – perfect for brightening up any room! Thankyou for all the wonderful ideas!

  • Karen Edwards

    We’re renovating our house at the moment $100 To spend at the Reject Shop would be perfect to decorate my 3 children’s bedrooms my son has his eye on a Superman Canvas at our local Reject Shop.

  • Sarah

    These are fantastic ideas! I’m moving into my new home soon and always looking for new (cheap) ideas to decorate. I also love the rejection shop, they have great products for such a good price.

    On a Saturday morning off to the Reject Shop!
    Leave the kiddies and hand hubby the mop.
    A leisurely browse and a shopping spree,
    A few things for the house and few things for me!

    The kids bedrooms need an overhaul,
    So that over their toys I do not fall.
    Some organisation baskets and trendy knick knacks,
    Pile up the books in a neat stack.

    The lounge room could use a new groove,
    Some photo frames and cushions to match the mood.

    And last but not least some crafty supplies,
    To create some peg dollies just my daughters and I.

    I would love to get crafty and revamp the kids bedrooms. I love the light globe effect and my son would love it. Letting the kids help with the changes would make for great weekend of reject shop fun 🙂

  • Jaye

    Thanks for some great ideas Katrina, I would love a voucher to ask a couple of friends to come along with me and we could set ourselves the same challenge as you did. Wander the shop and come up with our own DIY’s to share with each other. Great thing to do with some girlfriends on a weekend, What’s better than getting crafty over a bottle of wine inside this time of year!!!

  • Chris goodall

    Great ideas Katrina. I’d use the gift voucher to help restyle my 15 yr old sons room. Those fairy lights would look great against a dark wall with pops of colour from the Knicknacks I would get from The reject shop to decorate some bookshelves.

    I love the Reject shops bamboo bathroom range. When you’re renting it’s hard to do anything major for the home but id love to give the bathroom a spruce up and buy two of their bamboo bath matts to put in the bottom of the shower to cover the ugly shower floor, I did this recently for my mum and it looks fantastic and two fit perfectly in the base of the shower. I’dalso buy the awesome bamboo shower caddy. Loving their new prints they have so maybe one of those for the bathrooms well. A succulent would also look fantastic in tone of the bamboo toothbrush holders.

    I am a little bit ‘vignette’ obsessed at the moment so would definitely be on the hunt for treasures and the like to decorate. Im also on the hunt for good storage options for my laundry and the kids rooms so the voucher would go along way. That mason jar on the board is GENIUS!!
