Thrifty Things Friday #106

Hi friends and fellow thrifters!


Tonight I will be attending the black tie event at a local Business and Lifestyle Expo. I hope to get plenty of pictures to share with you soon. Our company, DTL Herbs is a sponsor at the event. We worked with and helped create the live plant vignettes. Tonight will be filled with lots of fabulous food creations from local restaurants, a fashion show and other activities.  It should be lots of fun!

Okay, on to some thriftiness!

Last week I shared my shopping for Spring and Summer clothes. I scored big time! What I was most impressed with is I had a shopping goal and stuck to my agenda. After reading my post, one of my girlfriends said she had an extra coupon for the 50% off total purchase for Value World that she was not going to use and asked if I wanted it.

I was talking to her and told her that I really want to find new Summer bedding. I like to change out  the look of our bedding from cool months to warm months. But, could I go back to the store and JUST look for bedding and NOTHING else? This is really testing my willpower! I am Strong! I CAN do this!…..{{keeping my fingers crossed!}}

So, back to Value World with another coupon and another mission!

And……I walked out the door with ONE ITEM!!


I bought this pretty light weight quilt.



The ribbon details are so pretty!


With the exception of a couple of the little ribbon bows need to be retied, I found nothing wrong with this quilt. I laid it out so I could search for any stained or soiled areas and happily found none.


(I have washed it and it came out beautifully!)



And the price…..


$15.60 – 50% = $7.80. I think that was a pretty good price. Next I am going to look for some pillows to put on the bed and curtains. My hope is to do a “From Winter to Summer Changeover” for $25.00 or under! We’ll see!

Now, how about you? What do you have to share today?


  1. What a steal that quilt was for $7.80. It's gorgeous. Wish we had a Value World here.

  2. Wow! What an amazing find! Hopefully you'll find everything else you need to complete your look for summer.
    I know my post isn't anything thrifty...but I wanted women who hadn't seen the video to see it. I hope that's okay.

  3. Great quilt! Such a great buy! Thanks for hosting!

  4. Fantastic price for that beautiful quilt! I am sure with your skills you will find curtains, pillows and anything else you might need to complete your room, Diann.
