Do you have a weekly thrifting allowance? How do you set your Op Shop budgets?
Is it based on needs and wants?
Potential resale value?
Or is it a case of throwing caution to the wind and having a big spend up?
“Jasmine”, my favourite Guerrilla Gardener & This Mum Rocks reader was asking me about how much I spend at the shops.
This weeks trio of charity shop goodies cost a grand total of three dollars.
That’s with a one dollar tip because the lady was only going to charge me $2 for the lot.
My Thrifting Budget: I typically give myself a weekly allowance of $10. Sometimes it’s spent on household “needs”.
Sometimes it’s just for an Op Shopping splurge. (like this week).
Biggest Spend to date: $27, the day it snowed & I went Beachy
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 an Op Shopping Ninja who thrives on a stealth mission, I get and respect that too!
