I do like my bargains, they are even better when they are educational as well.
We went to the car boot sale yesterday and got a couple of really good things. Firstly for Jess I bought a ‘make your own wind chime’ kit, the ‘jewels’ you stick on the side were missing but not a problem as I’ve got loads, everything else was there, that was 10p. On another stall we found a new copy of a DK Find Out magazine with a free min kite attached, she was sat reading the magazine yesterday for around an hour and is waiting for a windy day so she can try the kite. There was also a new sealed small purple (I love purple) notebook which I have claimed. We were charged 20p for both.
The next stall we went to was selling everything at 10p. Jess got a doll that’s half of the height of her. We found a Ravensburger 540 piece puzzleball. Not sure yet if all the pieces are there but the box is immaculate so hoping so, if they aren’t we haven’t lost much. There was also a part completed latch hook rug kit. None of us have done a rug before, although Abbie wants to do a rag rug at some time, so this might be fun. As it’s a dog design there may be a few arguments as too who gets this in their room.
Just as we were leaving I noticed 3 ring binders on a stall. Abbie asked how much and the lady said 10p, so she picked a purple one with stars on. She was then told she could take all 3 for the 10p so another bargain buy.
So for a total of 70p we got loads of things to keep the children occupied and (what Abbie hasn’t thought about) lots more storage for worksheets!
