I'm super thrifty so hit the charity shop for Christmas presents – everything was under £6 too | The Sun

WITH Christmas just 16 days away, most of us are still trying to find the perfect gift for our loved ones. 

Luckily one savvy mum has shown why people should head to their local charity shop after she got a load of gifts for just £5.40. 

Francesca, known online as @francescacharityshop, regularly shares her bargain hauls with her 46,000 followers. 

In a recent video, the pro thrifter shares what she managed to get in her local charity shop, including Christmas presents for her daughter, son, niece and sister.

“I spent £5.40 at the charity shop and I got all these presents. Let me show you what I got. 

“First thing I got was for my daughter – it’s this singing microphone and that was £1. 


I’m so thrifty I bought all my Christmas presents at the charity shop

I’m a savvy mum and here’s what I bought for my three-year-old’s £15 stocking

“This I-FLY robot for my niece, and again that was £1. It’s brand new and it’s still packaged. 

“I got this for my son as well. He loves this store, Smiggle. 

I went into it the other day and saw something very similar and they were a lot more expensive than £2. 

“My daughter absolutely loves craft things, so I got her both of these. They’re brand new and they’re both sealed, 50p each.
