Thrifty Things Friday #87

Hi everyone!


I hope you all have had a wonderful week! It has been a busy one around here but, that isn’t any different from normal.

We have been so blessed in meeting and becoming friends with so many people through Farmer’s Markets. I showed you all the wonderful burlap we received from one of our FM friends. Well, today I am showing you a couple of other treasures that were given to us from another FM friend.


Wine crates! Don’t you love wine crates to decorate with or to use in organizing?


This one is going to be decked out for Christmas soon.


And this one is already full of different ribbons. I love using these to store items in. They stack so nicely and things don’t get crushed. And, well…they are FREE! I really love that!

I’m excited to see what fun thriftiness you have to share this week!

  8. I use wine crates in my living room to store DVD, my bedroom for VCR tapes and craft room for various things. I also took 4 and painted them, put casters on them and made a train toy box for my grandson when he was born. He is almost 10 and still uses it. I have some ideas on my pinterest account too for crates.
