Although Helen’s garden looks like she has splashed loads of cash, she explained that she managed to keep the costs low by getting her items from Aldi, Shein, Home Bargains and Tesco.
The savvy shopper explained that she used an online code to get 40% off of her Aldi furniture.
The set should have been £299 but thanks to the hefty discount on the Aldi website, Helen was lucky enough to nab it for £190, including delivery.
Unfortunately for those looking to nab the same deal, the OUTDOOR40 code that Helen used has now expired.
But make sure to keep your eyes peeled in case Aldi bring out another discount code.
