My favourite game, when I was a young girl, was Guess Who. We’re talking the 80’s here.
Because I try to relive my own childhood through my children 😉 I proudly presented my 7-year-old daughter with a new version of the game.
Disappointed! (imagine this said by Kevin Kline in a Fish called Wanda – I’m definitely an 80’s gal).
My motto…If it ain’t broke don’t fix it…. Oh, but they did…
So, a woman on a mission, I tasked my Mom (a regular charity-shop-shopper) with tracking down a retro version of my much-loved Guess Who.
Now this was a while back. So much so, I’d almost forgotten I’d made the request.
Then lookie here what turned up Tuesday…
Oh yes, I love such random occurrences.
Not quite the 80’s version I’d dreamed of, rather a turn of the millennium edition. But still a much better design and build-quality than the recent Guess Who I’d purchased.
This recent discovery has made me question whether I may need to rethink my purchasing habits.
Could it be that a list made up of non-urgent items be drawn up, and should I pass a charity shop I pop in? Or maybe my Mom, the well-versed chaser (pronounced ch-az-er), could do the hunting for me?
I certainly would not want to start making non-necessary purchases!
I’m wondering, where does everyone else sit on the charity shop/goodwill store debate? Am I missing a trick or just avoiding impulse purchases?
Any top tips to share on how to do it efficiently and effectively (for someone who hates shopping?)?
