Not impressed at all with prices at the second hand shops, especially the Salvation Army shops.
Considering most things are donated and a pretty hot water bottle cover is $6!
I can buy a new hot water bottle and cover for $7.
Not impressed at all.
How do people set up a house cheaply if limited to just getting things from second hand shops.
The kitchenware prices are about the same as new items......
I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.
We saw some friendly ghosts and even some costumed pooches this year! We'd love for you to spread the joy further than your backyard by sharing a snap from your Halloween festivities below 🎃
