For the new arrivals I thought I would let you know about the Christmas Toy Sales that will start appearing in the stores in the next few week, ie Target, Kmart, Big W. A lot of the locals get their toys now and then put them on lay-by. For those that don't know what lay-by is, it's a little like having a catalogue in the UK, you put everything you want to buy in a trolley and then find the Lay-by counter, usually at the back of the store. I know for Target lay-by is available on anything over $20, it doesn't even have to be toys, they will ask you for a 10% deposit and then you pay the rest of as and when. If you are getting toys for Christmas they will hold them until Christmas Eve when you can go down and collect them, so if you have children who like to search the house for their presents this is a great way to go.
Hey all. I was in K-Mart earlier today (day off, yippee!) and purchased a new outfit given the warm weather we are expecting this weekend. A pretty summer top and a pair of shorts. The grand total of these purchases? A mere $25. This seems extremely cheap to me, and they weren't the least expensive items on sale. I suspect that my buying these threads are helping to feed an industry of exploitation, and that I am therefore supporting the horrific conditions in the sweat shops who [probably] made these items. What is too cheap? In this day and age, thrift is important to the majority of us, but when does buying cheaply made goods become immoral? Have I done the wrong thing by purchasing goods from this store? Or am I just being economic? I'd be interested to hear others views? Cheers Kat
