Are you taking advantage of the after the holiday sales? I’ll be honest, I really don’t need any more Christmas things and besides, I like to find the little treasure here and there throughout the year while thrifting.
However, there are certain things I look for that can be used through the year or at the next holiday.
One thing that I look for is those cute little girl’s gift sets (bubble baths, lip balms, jewelry etc.). The Princess’s birthday is January 8th, so these 50% off sets make nice birthday presents for her. This is also a good time to stock up on these kinds of things if you have little ones (or grandchildren) for Easter basket stuffers.
And then there are things like chargers. I picked up these green ones for St. Paddy’s day at Walmart for .49 cents each. They had red, silver and gold. These are basic colors to use all year. Keep in mind, you can spray paint or redesign these thrifted chargers! Check out my experimentation on painting chargers at this post!
So, think outside of the box when you see these clearanced holiday things. They can save you some money down the road.
Let’s look at some fun posts from last week!
Kim at Musings from Kim K. shared her (and her hubby) redo of this cute thrifted jelly cabinet.
Liz at Shortbread & Ginger shared some fun thrift finds.
And Pyrex lovers, did you see the Pyrex Ann at A Sentimental Life got at an auction?
Remember to link back this this party on your post! I never feature posts that don’t link back to The Thrifty Groove.
Don't forget, this Saturday (Jan.7) is the first monthly Thrifty Tablescape Linky Party of 2012! I would love to see you there!
