Thrifty Things Friday # 99

Hi Friends!


I like to help the Easter Bunny save money whenever I can. He has been kind to me in the past so, it’s the least I can do!

So, when I stopped at a local Goodwill and saw a few dollar store Easter items I know will be used by Mr. Bunny at a reduced price, although they were still brand new, I bought a few.




Brand new Easter grass for a quarter a bag. I got 4 different colors for the price of one bag at the dollar store.



I bought two bags of two different size plastic Easter eggs for .50 cents each. So, that ended up being a “Two-fer” instead of $1.00 each at the dollar store.



I picked up this cute little Easter basket. it was marked $1.00 but, all red stickers were half off so, I paid .50 cents for it.

That was my big shopping trip to Goodwill. I spent $2.50 for 7 items. Not bad!

There were several blogs that linked up last week that I was not able to leave a comment on. For whatever reason, your blog would not allow me to leave a comment. I did visit everyone who linked up last week so, if there is no comment, I am sorry but, I was there! Smile

Now, let me see your thriftiness for the week!


  1. I love Goodwill :-) What great prices yours has Diann! Ours up the price on seasonal items :-( My eyes are getting old, I don't see the linky tool? I'll check back later!

  2. I LOVE Goodwill too. We had a new one open up in the next town over. No Easter stuff though.

  3. I was at GW yesterday & ours had a nice selection of those same Easter items. Nice to find seasonal NEW items there.
