It was a Williams-Sonoma Thrift day for me!
My mom and I did a girls shopping/lunch day a couple days ago. We started by hitting up the two local Border Stores that are going out of business. Since my mom and I are huge readers and we read the same books, we loaded up with some bargains and just split the costs. After that we checked out the new discount store that replaced A J Wright. The store is called C W Price. Same basic type of store as A J Wright (which was owned by the TJMaxx. Marshalls and Home Goods Company). I bought a couple of Christmas presents there (I am about 50% done with my Christmas shopping! Woohoo!) and a couple of tops for me.
After lunch, we headed to Big Lots. Do you check out B. L. discount book section? I generally will find one or two nice large hardcover decorating or cook books there. This time I was so excited to find this gorgeous Williams-Sonoma “Thanksgiving Entertaining” book for $3.00!!
I have only glanced a little inside the book. I am saving it for when Troy is at the market and the princess is with Grandma and I am all alone! A nice pot of tea, and special little goodie and total quiet is called for to enjoy this kind of book! Do you save these kinds of books for a time when you know you will be alone and can really enjoy it?
Next stop was Value World with our 50% off total purchase coupon! I found several bargains that will be shared in the future but, these ones I just had to share today.
This is exactly the way I bought it. It was priced at $2.50. So, I paid $1.25 for this 4 plate set. I have not opened it yet so, we are doing that together today!
Well, as I continued to browse, guess what else I found? Another Williams-Sonoma set of plates! Also brand new and I paid another $1.25 for these 4 plates!
I think I had a very lucky thrifty day finding all these beautiful new Williams-Sonoma treasures! ! Total spent: $5.50!
It is good to be thrifty!
