Last month, I visited the wonderful Sue Ryder in Didsbury to discuss their super vintage section - look out for that blog post coming this week! In addition to that, I've discovered some excellent bargains over the past four weeks or so which I'm hoping to share with you soon.
Last week, I had some friends come to stay for the night so took the opportunity to have a proper tidy up and rearrange my flat a bit. In doing so, I went through my whole wardrobe and put everything into piles of keep, eBay and charity shop. The reason I have so much surplus clothing is mainly down to being lazy when shopping and never trying anything on. I always think 'oh it's only a couple of quid, I'll just chance it' and when the item doesn't fit, it ends up sitting in my utility cupboard for months on end! Today I faced the problem head-on and took three bags, practically over-spilling, to Mustard Tree. I'd tried to make a promise with myself that I would just take the items in, hand them over and come out. As soon as I got inside, I started speaking to one of the shop's regular volunteers which was to be my downfall. Twenty minutes later I've been through the entire Fill a Bag for £2.50 section and I'm walking out of the door with these delights...
Minus three and plus one means I'm still two down - that's good progress, right?
