Charity Shop Haul

So it’s been a while! Life got busy and priorities changed. But I’m back. 

After school today we ventured up to the village and looked in a couple of charity shops. 

Here’s our little haul:

Usbourne See inside Your Body -£2  (we love these books, lift the flap with lots of information, we have a small collection of these ‘encyclopaedia’ type books for young children)

Mr Bounce – 25p (dudes favourite books at the moment are mr men)

Dear Greenpeace – 50p (written by a local author who visited dudes school recently)

Usbourne noisy Knights – £1 (beat loves noisy books but the ones we have he has ruined as they are paper pages, this is board so hopefully can’t be damaged!)

Cinderellas bum – 50p (funny story book by an it hor we like)

The Giants loo roll – 50p (same author)


We love books so this was a great little find. Highly recommend getting books from charity shops as they are a fraction of the price.

Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser and UK children’s medical research charity, Sparks, are working together to make a difference to children’s health both at home and abroad. We are asking you to help make a difference to young lives by donating your used baby blankets and ‘keep the memories, not the bacteria’. For every blanket collected, £1 will be donated to Sparks to help to improve children’s health in the UK.

High Res Dettol Blanket

Backed by Rachel Stevens: Rachel said “I’ve got all my mummy friends donating their blankets and I’m trying to get as many people involved as possible. It’s a brilliant campaign in itself but now I’m a mum I am even more aware of how much washing there is to do. With Dettol Anti-Bacterial Laundry Cleanser I get to do loads of quick washes at low temperatures and I know that things will be hygienically clean and germ free.”
