' $2 shop ' Haul !
I always try and shop at independent cheap shops instead of the huge chains like Kmart, Daiso etc.
( Support independent business ! )
It's great if you have an area with a couple nearby because a lot of the products can range hugely between stores so you can compare their ranges and prices.
Total : $ 19.50
My two favourite incense scents : $ 1.50 each
Organising products :
Carabiner for my keys : $ 1.50
Clear container : $ 2.95
Perfect for some of my sewing supplies, I liked how it has slightly bigger compartments instead of just all tiny ones.
Door hook rack : $ 7.50
I love this thing ! I put it on my bedroom door and hang my backpack and keys on it when I get home. The perfect way to store extra bags especially is you have a lot of backpacks like me.
Going to pick up another for the bathroom door as well.
Socks : $ 2
Ring : $ 2.50
Both adorable ! The ring is super oversized as well which is great.

I discovered the Darebin Resource Recovery Centre a few weeks ago and it instantly became my few favourite place to shop.
It's a tip shop.
Basically tip shops are just piles of junk with hidden gems hidden inside awaiting you to find them. It's like a adult treasure hunt.
But not only do you get to find unusual amazing items,
it reduces the amount of items that end up in land fill.
My finds today !
ALL of their clothing excluding jackets are $1. ONE DOLLAR MY FRIEND.
This is actually a childs turtleneck, thankfully it fits !
The sleeves are a little short but that can be worked around.
Oversized shirt - front + back
I love Australiana (the tackier the better), so this oversize polo is perfect.
I've kinda gotten addicted to layering.
I was never really big on earth tones but I find myself buying them more and more.
A (probably fake) Ralph Lauren polo.
And then these two jackets for $3 each.
They don't just have clothes, but also every other household item you can imagine.
Picked up some books for $2 each.
I love the old style nature illustrations in encyclopedias. Had to have these two!
Six gothic tales - that cover got me.
White top - Op Shop
Singlet - Secondhand off eBay
Shorts - Vintage
Boots - Vintage Dr Martens
My new favourite top, those earth tone stripes are just a dream.
