Charity Starts at Home

As my regular readers will know, Hay and I buy the vast majority of our clothes from charity shops – specifically those in support of St Peter’s Hospice in Bristol - which sell extremely high quality goods (invariably new) and are decked out more like up-market clothes shops than charity shops. It does start to worry me though when I start complaining that a brand new pair of Wranger jeans is rather expensive at £4.50.

No. 1 son is at the opposite end of the spectrum and is showing signs of becoming an Alan Sugar clone; he’s taken to buying sweets, crisps and fizzy drinks and selling them at school at over 50% margin (100% mark-up). He maintains he only sells them to fat kids.

  1. Not exactly public spirited on the health front, your son...but he's probably destined to become a millionaire...
