I had a nightmare a few weeks ago where someone kept whispering “Money-Squander” every time I went into a charity shop. It was very real and quite off-putting. I even had a couple of weekends away from the charity shops. The power of dreams.
The problem is that Magpie Monday is one of my very favourite blog hops so a girl must shop till she drops and revel in her money-squandering.
Here are my most recent finds.
I was delighted to find that my local charity shop were selling beakers in their new product section. I quake as my children move around with drinks in glasses or cups so these beakers area godsend. I like the bright colours too and have actually gone back to buy more. You can never have enough beakers. In the same range, they are selling picnic bags, plates and picnic blankets. I am resisting so far ….
For some time, I have looked for some containers for tea, coffee and sugar. My current ones came in a job lot of bargains from Netmums last year and I don’t really like them. It is my experience that you rarely get the full set in charity shops so I picked these up with delight.
I live with my elderly dad and he is always coming into my kitchen to borrow a knife. I was not sure knife but picked up this hoping it was what he is missing in his kitchen in our annexe. Of course, this was a terrible excuce as I actually was after the fork. My late Mum always had one and it is such a good way of testing that your roast is cooked through. Anyway, it turns out my Dad actually borrows my vegetable knife and has his own meat knife. That was bad enough but then I saw the huge “FREE” label having paid £2.50. Still the product was free only if you bought joints so I suppose I got what I was looking for at a reasonable price really.
So this week’s haul was very practical compared with my usual fancies.
