Mr B recently gave me a patriotic ‘every man must do his duty’ style speech, along the lines of: if you ever want to move house, you must cut back on how much you buy. I’m trying. So when I went into town today to post my mum’s card and buy milk, I deliberately avoided all the charity shops I usually peruse along the high street…
Until I saw that Oxfam were having a sale. Yes, Oxfam, where the average price of a piece of clothing is £4. I walked past once, I walked past twice, and then I couldn’t resist anymore. Two lovely ladies handed me this green bag and explained the deal: I could fill it up with clothes, and only pay £3 for the whole lot. On April Fool’s Day? Hmmm.
Can I show you what I got?
- one mustard jumper
- one grey jumper (it’s so soft!)
- two men’s shirts (but still for me!)
- one black pleated skirt
- one brown wool-type skirt (size 20, lots of fabric)
- and a tie
I left feeling like I’d robbed the place. £3 for all that stuff? I felt much better when I remembered this bag of things I need to get rid of, like a big fabric swap.
Everything needs a complete overhaul except the black skirt: so lots and lots of restyling coming up! Oh the possibilities…
Have a great weekend everyone x
