You know what I love about frugalling sometimes? It throws open the great mysteries of the Universe.Why (and how), for instance, was this mug (which is almost identical to one I bought at the Te Papa gift shop in Wellington New Zealand last Easter for $27) sitting in my local Vinnies? (for $1 - I just had to get it to put in the top cupboard as a spare)
In the same flying visit to Vinnies I stumbled across a cache of bamboo knitting needles, MIP for $1 a pair.Which I bought, of course! Not that it's cheating because they are a gift for my Mum who hasn't used bamboo needles before.
But while we're on the subject of cheating during Use What You Have Month - I hereby declare my April will be finishing one day early as I'll be in Sydney and Princess B of Libraria is taking me to Reverse Garbage on Sunday for my first visit.
