A few years ago if anyone said have you ever bought anything from a charity shop I would have laughed. I cant begin to imagine how much money I have wasted on "stuff" and overpriced stuff at that :(
Out of necessity and not choice I now have to make considered purchases. I have turned into a Super Scrimper, something a few years ago that would have seemed implausible. I went into my local Age UK charity shop (there's a clue here somewhere!) where I was staggered to find 2 tops for a whopping £1 each :)
I then trawled around Ebay to find 2 more tops (ex M&S) for under a tenner, more bargins! I now have the bug. I did treat myself to a glass jar filled to the brim with buttons for £1.50, there must have been 300 of them and I have a really nice jar :) This is not mine but it looks the same.
I always thought that scrimping meant you were "tight", of course it means you are savvy!
How attitudes change when hard times come knocking at your door!
Are you money savvy??
