Sunday Savings #3
This top was $6.25, which is pretty pricey for an op shop, but it was too pretty to pass up. I couldn't find it online ANYWHERE, but the clothes that I found from the same brand (L'America) were quite pricey, so I think I got a good deal.
The next thing I got was this pretty n' pink magazine file for $2.99. Upon inspection I discovered it's actually from IKEA in a pack of two for $12.99, which would make them which would make them roughly $6.45 each, so I got it for less than half price, which is pretty good.
The second pretty n' pink item I certainly did NOT save on. I paid $3.99, and found it for sale on the American website Ali Baba for US 20 cents. Even with the conversion rate, that would only bring it up to AUD 27 cents, which means I paid $3.72 more than I needed to, so I'll deduct that from the total savings.
Total spent: $6.98
Total saved: $0. Even with the save from the first item, I still ended up "losing" 26 cents. At least my office will be pretty!
This is probably my favourite thing that I bought today. There are so many things I want to do with it, I can't make up my mind! I found hundreds of similar items online, but couldn't manage to find the exact item. It has no label or words anywhere on it, which makes me wonder whether it would possibly be a homemade item. The backboard is a little loose, but nothing that I (*ahem* Daniel) won't be able to fix.
Etsy has a bunch of similar boxes ranging from $30-$100, but I'll compare it to one of the $30 ones just to be reasonable. I still saved quite a bit considering I only paid $5.99.
Total spent: $5.99
Total saved: $24.01

There probably won't be a Sunday Savings post next week as it's my "birthday weekend" and I've got a lot planned. However, there will be a Sunday Spendings post, as I bought a bunch of new things this week that weren't secondhand that I want to share, plus I'm going shopping again next weekend - and, if that's not enough, I might even post some of my birthday presents, since I know what most of them are and I'm very excited.
There's just something about birthdays that makes me feel like a little kid again - and, considering most of the things I'm getting are Pokemon-themed, one might say I still am a kid!
Until next time,
