My grand daughter is going to a father daughters dance dinner at her school later this month. We found her the prettiest dress at the thrift shop for 5.00. Brand new, even still had the tags on it from Walmart. Went to a second thrift store and found a pair of shoes t match for 3.00 and a 3rd thrift shop and bought my son a silk red tie(to match her dress) for 99 cents! Cant wait for the dance and get pictures!

Good for you, Skin. Is Gumtree similar to Craigs List here in the States?

Geez, Vicki. You scored big. That is a real thrill.

No thrills for me this month due to I'm not shopping for anything. Coconut's vet bill put me over my monthly credit card challenge.

I hear you Sissy! I've been shopping very little. My next purchases will be for the business and garden.

Great bargains Vicki.

Sissy I guess it's similar to Craigs List, it's free to advertise and no selling fees.

I needed to finish off my one glass totem with some kind of glass finial. I found one at the Goodwill Store marked $1.00. It was "orange day" and my item was marked with an orange price tag. Total price with tax 54 cents.

DH got 40 cents off a gallon of gas at our grocery store.
