It’s new to me

For months I have restrained myself as I have passed op shops with change knocking about in the zipped sleeve of my wallet. We’re in a recession – haven’t you heard?

I relish the chance to hastily slide hangers across rails in stores where there’s only one of each thing. I love knowing, if I’m lucky, I can spend the same coins to buy a jacket I’ll wear for 6 years that I would have spent on a cake of chocolate I’d eat in 20 minutes only to feel sick.

Today was the day that our tax rebates appeared in our bank account.

Here are the four celebratory purchases I found in the North East Valley Sallies for less than a fine meal.

I heart rebates.
