This lot cost me £20 and all of it was previously destined for the dustbin. It’s all been bought for a family member who’s been flat sharing and had their kitchenalia depleted by people less careful than they are. The pan was scrubbed with wire wool and the rest went through the dishwasher. I also picked up some bath towels in the Salvation Army shop and they’ve had a hot wash and they’re drying. House sharing is so much the norm now and having second hand stuff that’s replaceable and certainly not precious is a great idea.
We’ve got a great local charity shop that doesn’t charge much and gets really great donations as people with no money at all can get household items for nothing if their need is such. Sadly, that’s the case for so many families in these difficult times. They are also happy to take cash. It’s where I send anything we no longer want.
I’m all for recycling, whether it’s taking the bottle, tins, cardboard and plastic to the recycling bins in the car park or buying household items in the charity shop. I’m a tightwad too so I love paying less for what ever we need.
I’m now going to have a dig round and clear out and return the favour.
