Oh this is lovely. A less hectic Monday makes me able to join in with Magpie Monday, the linky where we celebrate our bargain finds. As I love seeking out the quirky and the beautiful to me, this is one of my favourite memes and when I don’t do it, life just doesn’t seem quite the same.
Netmums have a nearly new board in every locality. I find it a really good source of bargains.
Here are my children enjoying a recent find.
Him Indoors had a go too despite his advancing years. I did take a photo but I think he destroyed the evidence.
My eldest son is a real car fanatic so imagine his delight when I picked up all this again via Netmums for just a fiver.
It made him so happy he even shared with his siblings.
Partly because I buy too many bargains, I am always on the lookout for storage. A wicker chest was advertised on Netmums but it came with lots of toys in it. The strategy was to not let the children see the toys and to donate them to a charity shop but to save the chest.
What can I say? It didn’t work. The children sussed it so I now have about 40 more toys to tidy up around.
Ah well, they are happy and I have more storage for bedding. Result.
Linking up with the very lovely Liz on the Me and My Shadow blog.
