charity shop bargins

We're all in this together, remember, so while the world is collapsing around our ears it might be nice to have a place to talk about new-found frugalities and old-fashioned eco-living. And mooncups.

It's sad that I have persuaded TheWriggler and my parents that a jaunt to the local village, with its better class of charity shops, is a good idea for tomorrow, right. That's not normal, is it?

I'm the same MP. I find my luck is better if I go to a non local charity shop or to one in an affluent area!

Wherever we go I'm in the charity shops. DH now just rolls his eyes as I get excited over a dog eared copy of a favourite childhood book!

X-posted with Rosie - not in my book it's not! I once spent a whole day going through the charity shops in Hexham!

I got this a couple of months ago but keep forgetting to post. Jo Jo Fleece snow suit, in the right size £3. Did us proud during the recent cold weather.

I just bagged a mega blocks castle playset complete with knight, horse, lady, wizard and dragon for £4.99!

Our charity shops are a wee bit more expensive it seems, but still. It's awesome and The Wee One loves it!

Nope, be pleased. I paid £15 for an almost perfect playmobil fire engine the other day in a charity shop. Ours are expensive!

On Friday we w're at a baby and toddlers grp and CM latched onto one if these.

I've never seen her enjoy playing with something so much and she got really upset when another child took it off her, so I resolved to buy her one at some point.

Today we stupidly drove miles looking for a cash machine so we could get done money to oaty a parking meter and just after I'd got the money I saw one in a charity shop. I needed to spend some money anyway to break the tenner for the machine so jumped on it. Bargainous £1.

Thought of this thread today! I was working off-site, and meandered into a charity shop on my lunch break. Hobbs dress: £4.

How weird, I thought of this thread yesterday too! Was dropping off baby clothes at Oxfam and spotted a Lego City racing car kit, unopened, £1.99! Have hidden it away while I decide when I should give it to him - it seems too nice to just hand over with no excuse.
