Why I like op shops!

Coz they sell cheap stuff!!

Recently my son has been putting a dvd on for himself. Usually I dont mind so much because he asks first. He does it all himself. Great!

Except.....
I think he has been pushing the dvd drawer closed instead of pushing the button for it to close.
Now its stuck. It wont open. So...

That means we can only watch videos... Do you remember those? They are those big old things with TAPE inside!

Anyhoo... we dont have many videos. We have a few from back before we bought a dvd player. Shrek, Chicken Run, Monsters Inc and wait for it..... THE WIGGLES!! And well frankly, I am sick of them!

Yesterday I was scouring the local op shop (second hand store) whilst killing time waiting for Chestnut Cheeks to finish Kindy and I found something special... something cheap..... something to keep me sane!! You would ONLY find it in an op shop....


Sweet!! $2 people!! A measly $2!!!!!!


I am officially doin' the happy dance!!

I love those $2 op shop videos and they're excellent for chuckerouters and reformed hoarders alike in that they create their own redundancy. They'll only hang around as long as the machine lasts. We'll never have to hear, "You gave away 'Teletubbies in the Snow'! I loved that DVD when I was little. How could you?".

Teletubbies freak me out. Yay for videos - there are no "extras", so a 90 minute movie doesn't turn into 3 hours of kids fighting over the remote to watch the "outtakes"... over and over again...
