Tips for Charity and Thrift Store Shopping - Fabulously Frugal 8 February

First off I want to thank everyone for making the relaunch of Fabulously Frugal do amazingly fabulous.  We appreciate every one of you that linked up and I have to say what a great bunch of posts, which are going to save me a ton of money,

What stood out for me, was the ways to shop at a charity/thrifty store.  I am always well jealous of people that get amazing charity shop finds.  I have been lucky a couple of times, but not I am confident that I will be much better and get a lot more things that I need.

Penny from Being Mrs C did a fab video on Charity Shopping with some great advice.

Where as Justine did a fab post teaching us all how to score at the thrift store.

So come and link up any posts you have that are Fabulously Frugal including money saving, money management, money making, crafts using recycled products or just of you making the most of what you have.

Please do visit my co hosts Mum in the Mad House who is sharing fabulous recycled art projects  and Diary of a Frugal Family.

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
