I had an urge for some retail therapy this morning and not wanting to waste too much money, I decided to take a trip to the charity shops. Gorgeous wakes up early like me and is the only one that will tolerate going anywhere near a charity shop, even the babies moan at me if I go into one, so I took him along with me.
I managed to find everyone something without wasting too much money.
The bag of little girl’s toys and the bag of balls cost 99p each, prompting Gorgeous to sing "Balls! Balls! Balls! Balls!" until I asked him to stop. The acrylic paints were for Little Lady and cost £2, when I checked the Wilko website, I realised they cost that much anyway.
The two little dishes are to use for soap trays. Both I and Little Lady have been using Shea Moisture Black Soap and the bars of soap are quite big and can get a little messy. Normal soap trays are too small, so these will contain larger bars of soap. Both together cost £2.
The two toiletry bags were £2 for both, the large one is a really good size to store stationary or make-up, but in the end I put small toys in it for the girls to play with when we go to my mum’s house
The little kid’s books were 2 for 99p, with the Hungry Caterpillar for Baby. The little green notebook was 50p and has dots inside. It's perfect for a dots and boxes game I like to play with the boys, otherwise I will use it for taking rough notes.
I was looking for some engrossing fiction to get lost in, but the shelves full of chick-lit and supermarket thrillers didn't really appeal. In the end, I picked three books which cost £5 altogether. I really, really like the look of all three alhamdulillah.
