Thrifty Thursday- The Birthday Present
It was my sister's birthday yesterday and here is the haul of gifts I gave her.
Black and pink rose strapless sundress £1.00, floral top 50p, pink flower platter £1.50, stripy top 25p, set of 3 red dotty boxes £1.49, 1950's products jigsaw 75p, small pyrex type bowl 25p, red plastic heart shaped ladle (new) £1.00, orange polo neck 20p, blue cardi 20p, blue rose patterned shirt 25p, scarf (new) 25p, red rose plate 10p, black and white bag £1.00, grey socks (new) 25p, black and white purse 25p, black cardi 50p.
I broke our rule twice because the boxes and the ladle came from dotcomgiftshop, but everything else came the way of jumbles, car boots or charity shops.
She said she loved it all. The purse was put into immediate use, she said the black cardi would be perfect to go over the dress she is wearing out for her work's Christmas meal, the black and white bag will be taken to the car boot on Sunday to hopefully be filled with her latest bargains, she wore the scarf as soon as it was unwrapped and after she has done the jigsaw she's going to lend it to me to do too. Result all round.
