Last Saturday I had a hair dresser appointment in Redcliffe and had about an hour up my sleeve after the appointment so I went for a bit of a stroll through Sutton St, which has 2 Op shops, that are worth a look. I hadn't been near any Op shops for ages and decided to go for a bit of a gander.
I can't resist looking at books, cook books in particular, and at one of the Op shops they had all their books marked at 50 cents. I found 2 fantastic books in really good condition, I was absolutely thrilled and walked away a very happy customer.
Over the years I have slowly made the transition from a shopper to a non shopper, the process of shopping just doesn't bring me joy, however finding a bargain at an Op shop is another kettle of fish. Again I try and limit the amount of stuff coming into the house and what ever I find must be useful, non cluttering and add value to my life. I have also noticed over the years how popular Op shops have become, and they have lifted their game by making the stores more attractive and user friendly.
So with frugal finds in mind - This week 5 Frugal things on a Friday are:
1. I made a batch of home made laundry liquid, this makes about 10 litres, costs about $1.80 and lasts me about 8 weeks
|Salted Caramel Parsnips|
|Caramelised Apples with Cinnamon|
4. Made a cake to take to a morning tea at work (all ingredients already in the pantry, so no outlay of money, only my time)
|Walnut and Almond Cake (recipe coming soon)|
So, tell me, have you been Op shopping lately, what have been your stellar finds?
Have a great day and thanks for reading.
