#ReasonsToShop with RakutenPlay.com ~Giveaway

I have recently been replacing my kitchen gadgets after my toaster caught fire. I decided to go for a chrome look. Having replaced my bread bin, toaster, kettle, dish drainer all in chrome all that was left was to replace the cream dustbin that looked really out of place in my kitchen. I looked around many sites as I wanted a bin that was large enough to take trash for a family of four but also looked smart and elegant. Almost as if my prayers were answered I was offered the opportunity to take part in  RakutenPlay.com -#ReasonsToShop campaign.


The site is a haven for everything from books, toys, home and garden, electronics, cloths and much more.RakutenPlay.com run a loyalty scheme by awarding super points to people who shop on their site too.

 I eagerly browsed through the site and after making a wish list of 10 items,  I put my sensible hat on and selected the perfect bin to match the rest of my kitchen accessories. I chose the Meliconi Steel 60L Kitchen Waste Bin in Silver. It is a good family size bin and looks really stylish in my kitchen.  They have been also been very generous and they have kindly offered £30.00 credit  to one simply.food reader to spend on their site.

  7. Love your choice of bin, that sounds so odd but my dad has a similar one and it is amazing for keeping bad smells inside the bin and also keep any pets that enjoy a good bin rummage! :)
