Floggin' Frugal Friday Post

No photos, sorry, I'm battling a broked computer and have snaffled Aspie teen's laptop, so bear with me.
Now, Frugal Friday!
I bought these the other day and saved them just for this post - some op shop finds to lessen my carbon footprint.
For Aspie teen there were 3 brand new books in the Santa Paws series - Santa Paws, Santa Paws Saves The Day and The Return of Santa Paws.
Just to balance out the feel-good warm fuzzies he found a video copy of The Nightmare Before Christmas which had him chortling with glee.
For the rest of us we found some fabulous BRAND new, never been opened Chrissy decorations (silver and purple tree decorations) still sealed in their packets and 3 sets of battery operated lights, also brand new.
Each cost us $2 each, while the video was 99 cents.
The last few Xmas' we've found some wonderful old vintage decorations, some collectables, for a pittance at the op shops.
Instead of buying up each year, go have a gander at your local second hand shop and consider shrinking your carbon footprint at a time of the year when most people go nuts with too many of everything.

The Rules.







Follow my blog, the Random Ramblings of a SAHM. I never seem to get to reading all the links here. But believe me, I try. Not that any of this is my idea anyway- FYBF is MummyTime's brainbaby. I stole it.


Grab the bubbly button and post it on your sidebar.


Link your First Name and/or Blog Name and URL of your post or blog.


Add a short description (max of 125 chars). It could be a description of yourself, your blog or a teaser to your latest post. .


Follow at least 1 linkyer/blogger (Be nice and spread the love).


The list will be open for linkyers on Fridays (and for the foreigners Friday as well).


A new and fresh link list will open every Friday. And you will have to link up AGAIN. The previous link list does not carry over to the following week.


And lastly, have lotsa fun. I mean it. If I detect anyone not totally loving the awesomeness, I will bump you off the linky list. (Joking) (Kinda).

I only just discovered op shopping this year....I know! Where have I been? It is definitely one part of reducing our footprints that I love!

Oh, there's way too many links there for me to start following. I'm a slow reader and can just barely keep up with my regulars.
I've never thought of op-shopping for decorations. I really don't need any, but I might pop in next time I'm near an op-shop.

Rather interesting place you've got here. Thanx for it. I like such topics and everything connected to them. I would like to read more on that blog soon.
