I have a rather unhealthy obsession with bargains, so imagine my delight when my local Oxfam became the discount shop! I’ve blogged before about my love for their brand new range, and my shop gets all the fab bits and bobs the other shops are unable to sell. Prices are between 20% and 50% of (not off) the original RRP, which means massive bargains to be had. If you don’t have a store nearby you can order through the Oxfam Website.
Heres what I picked up on a recent visit…
Pack of ten notecards @ £1 instead of £5.99 – perfect for using as kids birthday cards
Monkey backpack @ £2 instead of £12.99
Mini skittles game @ £1 instead of £4.99
Headband/necklace making kit @ £1 instead of £4.99
I also picked up this stunning winter coat by the designer Jil Sander, which is in as new condition and would have cost hundreds, for the measly sum of £7.99. This is probably my best charity shop buy ever, and I’ve had some great coups before!
If I want to stretch my maternity leave out for a whole year, then I need to be as thrifty as I possibly can. Do you have any tips for me?
