One way we save money is to shop at our local charity shop. We live in quite an affluent community, so the stuff people donate to the store is incredible. Especially clothes. We buy a lot of clothes there. Last week, I scored a GAP hoodie, tags still on, for $2. So soft & warm, perfect during a blizzard!
A set of winter themes, all petit point. Love the small details, like gold & sparkly threads. For all three, we paid the amazing sum of $1.50.
Made in England, this piece of china could be a vase ... a place to put my pretty floral pens ... a candy cane holder at Christmas ... or the perfect spot for loose change! The price? A very reasonable $1.
Also from England, I loved this delicate plate & immediately imagined using it for cookies when we have tea on a cold winter's night. I'm planning to change out the ribbon as this one is no longer soft but quite stiff & frayed. And we paid just .50 cents for this gem. All these precious teasures for a grand total of $5. Our budget was $20, leaving us with $15 for another shopping day!
