Thrifty Things Friday #73

Hi everyone!


Oh, I have been loving this cooler weather. Even if it is hot during the day, the evenings are cooling down beautifully.

Since this summer has been so backwards with our usual August heat showing up in June and now cooler weather, it really has gotten me in the mood for Fall. I think a lot of us are feeling the same way.

Last week I stopped at a thrift store and found some fun Fall things. Two items were flower arrangements for Fall. Whoever donated these really stored them nicely because there is no dust or other undesirable additions to the arrangement which is so hard to find. I know all of you realize how expensive it is to put together arrangements. Faux flowers are so outrageous sometimes. Even if you go to the dollar stores and buy all of it there, to do a large arrangement still is going to add up pretty quickly.

So, when I spotted these pretty Fall baskets already made up and then checked out the price, I had to get them!





$2.49 and then take 25% off (Every Monday it is the managers special) = $1.86. I can’t even buy the basket for that price!





$1.99 minus the 25% = $1.49. Yup, I love these kinds of finds!

Let’s check out some fun thriftiness from last week!
