I start a 'no buy' Jan tomorrow though, so was sucked in to a few books at 49p each !
So, much as I would like to be joining you in 2022 to share my finds - it will only be if it is a need with any luck.
- Nadiya Bakes by Naiya Hussain
- Penguin Orange Spine - 10 rules of life by Jordan B Peterson
- Penguin Orange Spine - How much is enough? by Robert Skidelsky & Edward Skidelsky
Treasurequeen, the beeswax pellets were a bargain!
So much to read, so little time.
SO that went to the charity shop a couple of days ago and rumaging afterwards I found a gorgeous satin type Coast pencil dress in blue and black fade for just £2, can't find an original new price estimate but there's an identical one on Ebay for £25.

I popped into another on the way home and pucked up 3 crime novels for £1- new authors to me but all recent releases
I've a lot of books in the garage but I'm vaguely reluctant to let them go to a charity shop as I think I might get something on ebay. They're mostly old miniatures that I used to buy when I was at uni so aren't the usual items but I could be corrected on that.
There are a number of tops/shirts I bought a few years back that I don't like. The fit or colour is not right. I learned too late that some shops sold things that fit me fine but would shrink up an inch when washed and left me exposing too much tum for a person of my age and size.
I still haven't tidied away some of the summer things and rather than wait until it's warm enough to wear them again I really do think I should swap out the winter things and add to the charity pile while I'm at it.
And there's the scarves of course (no, you may NOT have the new gucci!)
Ultimately I would like the tiddly back bedroom (big enough for a single bed and side table and little else but in practice is just a clothes closet.) to be tiddly but tidy. And ultimately that means getting proper clothes rails in there. Still a bit baffled after how many decades at the Brit way of building bedrooms without any cupboards for storage but that's a whole other foreign thread.
And once all of that is done I can start shopping again.

@C_J - almond is a nice colour and fantastic that you've already got another bit of kit in the same colour.
I'm having a bit of a think about kitchen kit, clutter and generally having too much stuff and not enough space at the moment. I'll let you know the upshot in a few days.
Scallops. A host of legends surround this, one of the loveliest of seafoods, except when overcooked. My favourite true story concerns the young lady scallop preparation worker, interviewed by the 'New Yorker' Magazine. When asked for her honest opinion of the shellfish she said "They don't have much personality".
