£2.50 Charity Shop Haul #5frugalthings

Charity Shop Haul

So this week I decided to take a break from my rather intense studying (just 7 weeks to go!!!) and have have a little wander round my local charity shops. I purposefully took just £5 out with me to see what I could find.

Well it was a delight.

I used to love scouring charity shops but I have been a little time short lately (a lot time short if I am honest) and within 10 minutes in just 1 shop I had my 5 frugal things!

Want to see what I got for my £2.50?

Well we are off on holiday soon so I had my eye out for a good book for the beach (£1)

Charity Shop Haul


A DVD for the kids, to take with us for the evenings (50p)



And  I  also got us some lovely crafty bits for half term (and Valentine cards) plus a perfect embroidery set that can slip in the present drawer –  (3 for £1!! )



What a great little haul!

Cheered me up no end.

    What a great charity shop haul, will be a great help at half term. My kids really enjoyed the Spiderwick Chronicles when we borrowed the DVD from the library.
