Charity Shop List

I love a good list and at any given point I have several floating around the house. I write out daily lists, grocery lists, long term goal lists, travel and holiday lists; pretty much anything that comes to mind I transfer to paper.

This is my actual charity shop list.  It isn’t fancy and at any given visit to my site it’s bound to be different. It is a copy of the list that I keep with me on my phone and one of my 5 things you need for a successful charity shop visit.  If you don’t have a charity shop list yet I highly recommend putting one together for yourself.

If you are wondering why you should have one and how to start one for yourself, check back later this week for an upcoming blog post giving some guidance and tips on starting a list for yourself.  Happy treasure hunting everyone!
