When I first started my blog I often used to post about my car boot sale bargains that I would find early on Sunday mornings. I haven’t had a chance to do much boot sale bargain hunting lately, but a couple of weeks ago I did run my own stall at a local boot fair and made a tidy profit! I made over £160, simply by selling unwanted stuff and old clothes that I had collected over time. You may think…

June was another busy but enjoyable month for me! In my last update I mentioned that I had found a property that I wanted to buy and my offer was accepted, but I was just waiting for the mortgage to be approved. Well I’m thrilled to say that my mortgage is now all sorted, the solicitors have been appointed, and I’m pretty close to getting my completion date! So EXCITED! Hopefully next month I will have another update! Follow me on…

So here’s what I bought…  If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I have a tonne of cushions on my bed including another fox cushion as well as a family of owls.…

I mentioned in my last carboot sale post in June that I was waiting for my local one to be relocated to a better field. It was finally moved to the big field in June, and so I held a carboot sale stall of my own. I made a crazy amount of money, almost £200 from selling my old stuff. It was mostly shoes, clothes, and some make up, sold for 50p or £1 each. I sold a lot of stuff…
