As a leisure and lifestyle writer, I felt I would be doing a disservice to WeekendNotes readers if I had failed to write about my latest discovery. On my lunchbreak, whilst looking for make up primer, I found myself downstairs at Myer's on Bourke Street Mall in the Christmas trim section.
Normally when there are leftover goods either at Christmas or Easter, immediately thereafter the goods are normally on sale at 50% off the marked price; yet I was stunned to find some amazing hampers at a whopping 90% off, and this ain't no typo on my end.
That's right I only paid $10 for those two lovely hampers in the picture above, and yet you would be hard pressed to buy all of these gourmet food items individually at a supermarket for $10, and yes even on a good day. We are talking quality.
Think Santa Vittoria to name. Even the staff member who served me left the counter to grab a couple of hampers for herself and shoved them under the register to buy before she went home for the day; the value was that exceptional.
I even got a discount on my primer at 15% off the marked price; so come to think of it, the entire purchase of the primer and these two gorgeous hampers added up to less than what I would normally spend on this particular primer alone. Furthermore, if you are a Myer One member, you will even earn shopping credits towards that next gift card reward.
