Cat Protection Society- op shop review

One of the other teachers is expecting his first child in June, so I went on a hunt for garments to cut up. I decided to stop by the Cat Protection Society shop in Newtown, and I'm so glad I did. It's a small shop, about 10 meters by 8 meters, and their garment section isn't terribly organized, but that doesn't matter. The main attraction was the baskets of clothing that were $5 for a bagful. I ended up with 26 pieces for $10, and I also bought 2 patterns for a dollar each. Apparently the bins are temporary, but  they've been there for a few weeks so far.

Anglicare - op shop review

I went to the Anglicare warehouse recently- unfortunately, they've since moved. It was a good experience, though. They had huge bins of clothing, so I bought a carrier bag full. It was less than a kilo, so I got 6 things for $8. I'd definitely recommend it if you're near their new location.

Smith Family Shop- op shop review

I finally found an American-style op shop in the inner west. It looks like they rotate the oldest things to be half price, and there's a $2 rack. Things still aren't by size (WTF Australia?) but at least there's a fat girl rack so I don't have to scavenge through a million size sixes.

I ended up getting 4 men's t-shirts for $9.50, so there will be new underpants in my future.
