Toddler boots: £1.50 size 6 so might be a while until she fits them but nevermind Sparkly shoes 🙂 I was really happy to find these. £4 seem nearly new from Next. (If you are size three and like gold heels they had three pairs at Sue Ryder which were 👌🏻) £2 Nutmeg, current size … Continue reading York Charity Shopping
If you are an avid subscriber and have very little to fill your memory space you may remember I bought this cheap wooden walker which seemed really sturdy and heavy but started tipping and scared me. So I found this on Facebook marketplace for £5 which is much better. One of my friends did actually … Continue reading 29th May: Treat yo’self
I am now really far behind and can remember zero interesting facts about last week. Emily's dad came to visit and then his mother and grandmother did the next day. Such exciting news. But I did find these super cute pinafore at Jo Jo Maman Bebe online and at £11 each they are cheaper than … Continue reading 27th and 28th May: yawn but look at these pinafores
Thursdays are for Gingerbread meet ups in York but I like to make use of being there so have a little trip somewhere and either buy loads of charity stuff or take a million photos. Someone suggested I have a look around Acomb as there are a few charity shops, someone else suggested I take … Continue reading 23rd May: A disappointment of a cream tea
Bit of a strange background for these photos. Baby is asleep on the sling so in an attempt to get the most out of the nap I'm sitting on a massive swing and photographing my charity shop bits. I look a bit weird hanging out on my own photographing a giant snake and there is … Continue reading Acomb shopping trip (and a bit of Garforth and Sherburn)
Do you enjoy how Europeans say Eee-kay-ah? I do. "the wonderful everyday" I know it's British to say Marmite is the ultimate love it or hate it thing but I'm fairly moderate in my like of the spread. IKEA on the other hand is a true divider of people. We furnished our first home pretty … Continue reading 17th May: IKEA YA YA YA
So I'm stuck in the car outside the shops with a sleeping baby again which means the backdrop is not quite Instagram ready, it's just my steering wheel...but I might as well make use of my time! Shoes for me (obvs) £3 from Primark but I think they are unwornBoden t-shirt for me £3.75Jo Jo … Continue reading Wetherby Charity Shop Finds
I'm currently sat in the car, in the rain...again. Sleeping Beauty is in the back and we are outside the house. We left in a big rush because my little friend wanted a lie in but I wanted to go to my single mums Gingerbread meet up in York. I was trying to be efficient … Continue reading 9th May: Banana, gingerbread, bargains, brownies, poo, baths, more banana and some giggles
So I'm in mixed minds about all this charity shopping. Part of me thinks that stocking up on cheap clothes before I need them saves me lots of money as if I wait until I NEED something I'll probably not find it and have to pay more on the high street. But even if it's … Continue reading A Haxby Haul
We ventured out in the miserable weather to go to Garforth. I don't find loads of things for me in Garforth but I've had good luck with clothes for Emily. Today's lot came to £17.25 This is the priciest of today's finds at £4, however it is Ralph Lauren and we are going to my … Continue reading Garforth Charity Shop Haul
This Wednesday has primarily been spent sat in a car in the rain while the baby sleeps. It's absolutely pouring down but Emily was getting tired and grouchy mid morning and I didn't know how to get her to sleep without massive effort bouncing around the house with the sling so we went to Garforth. … Continue reading 8th May: Wet Wednesday
It feels quite appropriate to have rain on a Bank Holiday Monday. Very British. We had no buddies today and didn't want to be bored at home all day so set off for Fairburn Ings. It is an RSPB reserve but I'm a cheapo and didn't want to pay for parking when we weren't staying … Continue reading 6th May: Rainy Monday
I won't feel too bad about getting nothing for the baby yesterday as we went crazy on baby stuff today. Everything is pictured below and came to just £19 in total. I'm feeling rather proud. The little pirates above were only £1, they are supposed to be skittles but I thought when she has little … Continue reading A particularly good baby charity shop haul (Selby and Howden)
Once again nothing for Emily. Bad mum. A few bits for me though. I couldn't try the jumper (above) on in the shop as I was both babywearing, breastfeeding and browsing all at once. However I did manage to try on four skirts whilst doing all those things so I felt like a brilliant multitasker. … Continue reading York Charity Shop Haul
These charity shop posts are just pure showing off as I feel like a professional bargain hunter. Anyway here are today's finds from Knaresborough (above and below) I was so pleased with myself when I found the Boden ex sample stuff in Selby. Turns out they are in lots of Scope stores. Still exciting though. … Continue reading Knaresborough & Selby Charity Shop Haul
My thoughts and experiences on what to save, splurge or not bother buying. Click that image!!
I think I got a year's worth of good luck today and I'm showing off about it. Click the photo for more excitement and photographic evidence.
Ah Pontefract, the land of licorice, Haribo, drunken lunchtime singing, beauty queens and little old ladies. Click on the title for my brief adventures in this little Yorkshire gem.
Sophie Elizabeth Wright (almost Davey) International Blogging Sensation (see map for evidence). This is just today's figures so I'm pretty surprised how many countries were on the list. I'll completely ignore the fact most countries only had one view and as a Geography graduate I'll just enjoy that I got a map involved. This isn't … Continue reading 7th April: a very sleepy Sunday
My name is Sophie and I have a charity shopping problem. But I find so many good BARGAINS I'm going to try and show them off before I put them away so here is my selection from Selby (plus a couple of bits from Harrogate) Top row: Boden dress left (midi) £20 and above the … Continue reading Charity Shop Addict
I think Frank has a love hate relationship with Emily where he thinks she is interesting and loves the offcasts from weaning but also resents her space on the sofa and attention she takes. I often find myself squashed on both sides from them. My husband will soon be taking Frank to live with him, … Continue reading 1st April: A standard Monday
