It's that time of month where I show off my thrifted finds from the past month.
I've done a lot of shopping this month BUT wait until you see the deals I got.
One of my favorite sections to check out, when shopping Goodwill, is the children's clothes. Occasionally, I'll stumble across a nearly new sparkly dress for Grace. For $3.99, there was no passing up this beauty.
Again this month, Goodwill offered a promotion that if you brought in a bag of donations they'd give you a 30% off coupon. I happily donated a bag and took advantage of the additional 30% off. *If you haven't already, sign up for emails from Goodwill so you don't miss promotions like this.
I recently began a hunt for mismatched vintage plates. Image a stack of beautiful mismatched vintage plates laid out for a party. They'd add charm to any event and I suspect make the food taste better too. The plates were .49 cents each. With my additional 30% discount, each plate cost me .32 cents.
I found 5 stencil brushes. The brushes were .49 cents each. These were purchased with my additional 30% off coupon so these brushes cost a grand total of $1.62.
The woodaholic is using the dark handled brushes to paint his barn wood bunnies and the other brushes found their way into Grace's craft station.
Though I have no immediate need for this vintage beaded trim, I couldn't put it back on the shelf.
This summer, we are attempting to get our girlie girl exposed to some sports. She'll start soccer in April. I'm hoping she enjoys it but would hate to invest in new equipment if it turns out she doesn't. I found an extra small pair of shin guards for $1.99. I also found a catcher's mitt for .99 cents...though, I realize she won't need this for soccer, at least I don't think :)
I've enticed the mister to join me in my Goodwill shopping. He came across an English made police whistle for $2.99. With the 30% off coupon it ended up being $1.98.
Again, this past month, I found some great books for Grace. Not only does she enjoy being read chapter books but she is also getting really good at reading books on her own. All the books below were .59 cents each, with the exception of the brand new Jingle and Bell's Christmas book which was .99 cents.
After Goodwill, I headed to Hallmark, where all the Christmas stock was marked down to 75% off. There, I found a brand new Bell for $8! Bell is one of those interactive story buddies. She'll be tucked away, along with the .99 Jingle and Bell book, until Christmas when she'll be wrapped for Grace.
Over Christmas, I had bought a few gifts from The Gap and in return, I was given $25 Gap cash. Like any good thrifter, I waited until I could combine my Gap cash with an additional discount. The day that I went, there was an additional 30% off all sale items.
I bought a package of undies (7 pairs) and some new socks for Grace along with the following...
Sometimes shopping in conventional stores is even better than shopping at thrift stores.
