I started out with good intentions, not to go mad, to resist and be good. Nah, that soon went by the by when I saw these comfy little trainer alternative shoes in my local Cancer Research shop. Brand new Kangeroos, they had only just been put out on the shelf. So I bought them. For £6.50, crikey, that's more than I spent for the whole of September!
Worth it though.
Again I managed to resist random purchases for a fortnight, even leaving two vintage capes on the rail in one reasonably priced shop. They were £5.99 each if you were wondering!
Until mid month. I happened to mention to him indoors that I'd seen a certain national team's rugby top in his size in a local shop for just £3. He insisted I go back and get it for him. So I did, and I found these for me!
The pretty fitted shirt with 3/4 sleeve cuff detail is M&S. It looks unworn and was just a pound. The denim pinafore was £2.49 and, unbelievably, is from Primark. I was shocked. I have a golden rule when charity shopping, steer clear of cheap brands. This is a cheap brand but really well made. It will look great with a jumper underneath and some woolly tights and long boots.
On a buying roll now, I picked up this t shirt at the shop I help out in, I always buy t shirts as I wear them under everything. It was going in the 50p basket out the front and had a nasty blue mark across one shoulder. I'm not a huge fan of pink but for 50p I wasn't going to pass up a good t shirt. Never heard of the brand but a quick google showed me these retail at £24.50. A quick wash soon sorted the blue mark out and now it's as good as new.
I then went on to find another M&S shirt on a pound rail. This pound rail has recently appeared in one of my local shops, and I am thrilled!
Last week I managed to find a huge cat carrier basket for a fiver, ideal for transporting the chickens when we move, and just the other day I scored two long sleeved tops for him indoors, just a pound each!
As we are off out for the day tomorrow (to somewhere spooky!) I will not be making any further charity shop purchases this month. Total charity shop spend for October is £21.50, oops!
