The Spring Sale has started in a push to reduce our stuff further
So far I have;
Recycled two old phones = £30
Returned 3 items of clothing = £40
Returned a pair of boots = £120 less £12.50 the cost of having my old ones re-heeled and re-soled = £107.50
Participated in a car-boot sale =£45
So £222.50 in the black
Now the Hubby isn’t convinced I should add in the returns. He is incredibly pragmatic, and believes that I could therefore go out and spend £1000 and take it all back to the shop – stating we would be £1k in credit. I get his logic, but in my defense, the 3 items I purchased I could easily have kept and worn as my wardrobe now really is down to the bare basics. The boots are a pair I have loved for almost a year, and have not purchased until last week doing the school run I realised my right foot was soaking wet from standing in a puddle. My 2-year old black knee-high boots (which may I add I purchased second-hand off eBay for £35) had a stinking huge hole in the sole! However upon receiving the new boots realised I did not love them enough and that actually my old faithfuls may be salvageable – and they were…
So I claim the returns also – we are £222.50 better off than we were! and we’ve reduced our stuff – Win Win!
eBay next on the list – give me strength to complete this task – purlease! It’s not my favourite pastime listing items for sale. But it needs doing…
