No freebies this week, although we are really enjoying our library books, and I finally got round to reading my bargain book from a week or two ago - Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, I read it in two sittings as I was completely hooked. Has anyone else read it? What did you think?
We did snap up a couple of useful items this week.
We have been on the lookout for a couple of bags to store or freeze bread as we don't want to use plastic bags. When he makes dough Dan usually makes at least two batches, if not three (we only have three big bowls so that's the limit in one go). I bought these bags from my shop for £1.49
They're the ideal size for storing pitta.
We went to Lancaster at the weekend as we needed some tea, which reminds me we've been keeping a note of how many cups we get for the money. A bag is £5 and we made 97 mugs. I think we could get to 100 without too much bother. So it's still dearer than it could be, but not too bad and we enjoy it so much.
Anyway, back to coffee
I spotted this coffee filter, brand new, still in all the original packaging, for £1.99. Ideal for taking to work, making a single cup at home, or for making coldbrew. I was really impressed when we got it home as both the filter and spoon are metal, I thought they'd be plastic. So really pleased with that. When we got home I had a peep to see if there were still for sale, they are and retail at £12.99!
The absolute best thing to have happened this week is that we have a new manager at the charity shop. After what seems like years but is in fact only four long months someone is in place and hopefully we can move forward.
