Heya Op Shoppers & Thrifters! Do you the thrifting roles reverse for you when faced with a move? Find yourself making trips to your favourite charity shop or 2nd hand store?
Surprisingly I haven’t made too many trips to the op shop this time around. We had a big clear out when we shifted to Chch last Oct.
Because I’ve been busy packing, I haven’t been into my favourite secondhand shops for a couple weeks now. The pillowcases are an awesome blue check & will go well in the toddlers new room. They come from the Christchurch City Mission Sydenham shop.
My little Op Shop Ninja picked out the banana from her favourite thrift shop on Stourbridge St. She quite likes popping into the “shops” on our way to pick up our weekly fruit and veggie order from the Christchurch South Fruit & Veggie Coop.
As for the thrifting & blogging siesta: in true Baron style, this shift is a bit unusual, but will be worth it in the end. The lease is up & the landlord is raising the rent to a level we aren’t prepared to pay. (Renting in Christchurch: not for the faint of heart)
We’ll be shifting about over the next couple weeks, & can’t guarantee I’ll get any time to post anything until after the 1st of the month.
The Best Part: Our housing project has stepped up a notch. We’re one step closer to having a 1920s cottage relocated onto our section in a much better suburb & school zone than the one we’re in now.
Do you have a big clear out when you shift house? Donate to the thrift shops, hold garage sales, or head online to make a bit of $$?
I’d love you to share your thrifting strategy or your own op shopping experiences in the comments below. I’m all about sharing the knowledge, but if you’re one of those Op Shopping Ninjas who thrives on a stealth mission, I get and respect that too!
