Man, I thought I was busy during the summer months, so why does it feel like I am 5 times more busy now? I just don’t get it! I talked to a girlfriend of mine the other day and she was talking about being bored because her boyfriend was out of town. Bored? Really? I sat there trying to remember the last time I was bored in my life. Next time I see a falling star I am going to wish for a little boredom in my life! LOL
Okay, enough whining.
I have cut way back on thrifting these days. Reasons?
- I am trying to get rid of some of the stuff I already have and don’t want to add to it.
- Too busy looking for things for craft shows for our business
- Money is tight
- I just haven’t had much time.
However, the other day I went to a grand opening of a new Salvation Army store in our area. I was looking for a Detroit Tigers t-shirt for the princess to wear on “Tiger Day” at her school. I found one for .69 cents! Good deal.
It was blue sticker day so, of course, I tried to look at things that were blue stickers only. I am pretty good at doing that. Yup, I have trained myself well! LOL
I spotted this heavy silver plated candlestick. I thought it would be pretty in my small bathroom (which is lavender, white and silver). I haven’t bought anything new for this room in a couple of years. So, with it being a blue sticker, the price of $2.00 came out to $1.00, I thought it was worth purchasing.
As I walked further down the aisle I came to the candles. I spotted this large white pillar candle with little rhinestones in it and thought it would be perfect for the silver candlestick. I turned it over waiting to see what ridiculous price they were asking for. At least the first thing I saw was the blue sticker!
Yup, only .50 cents for this in perfect condition candle! Wow! And then half off that!. A whopping quarter? I was definitely happy!
So that was my un-needed frivolous $1.25 purchase for the week!
