Thrifty Things Friday #122

Hi everyone!

TTF CoHost 1

Linda and I are so happy you could join us for the party today!


This past weekend I headed to Kohl’s to use the $10.00 off $10.00 coupon that I received in the mail.


I really have fun seeing how close I can get to the $10.00 and not pay much out of pocket. Well, I think I did okay. I did end up spending $2.52.

Want to see what I bought?


I bought three things.


This French memo board with “House Rules”.


Originally $24.99, clearanced 90% off so it was $2.49.


A Candle Jar by Jennifer Lopez.


Originally $24.99 but clearance 70% to $7.49


And a pair of Candies Silver hoop earrings originally $12.00 but clearanced 80% for $2.40.


Making my grand total out of pocket $2.52.

On a side note:

As most of you know, summer is our serious crazy time around here because of our herb business. And Troy and I figured out that vacations during the summer were just not going to happen for us.


We have our travel trailer parked in the woods at our family cabin in Northern Michigan. We haven’t even had a chance to get up there to “de-winterize” this year yet. So, I am heading up there today with my brother for a mini getaway just for the weekend.

I am so looking forward to going up north! My parents are up there and my nephews will be there as well for the weekend. And this weekend is  the County Fair. Do you go to local county fairs? I just love them! They are so much fun and so “down home”.

I’ll be home Sunday night. So, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Now, let’s see what kind of thriftiness do you have to share with us today?


  1. I hope you have a fun weekend! I bet the nights will be cool! Love your thrifty buys! I'm linked! Hugs!

  2. Thank you for hosting this cool party and for having me.
    Big hugs,

  3. DiAnn,
    Thanks so much for hosting!! I have a $10 off card for Kohl's... I have to get over there...


  4. Love your bargains, especially the bulletin neat. I hope you have a wonderful weekend with family and at the county fair. I love county fairs, real county fairs. The one we have here is just a midway of rides. A few counties over they have a nice county fair. I do love them so.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Enjoy your week-end break and thanks for hosting Diann. Wow, you cleaned up at Kohl's!

  6. How wonderful to get so much for so little!

  7. Wow! You sure did well at Kohl's! Have a fun weekend and thanks for hosting!

  8. Wow you got some great deals. 90% off??? Goodness! I like your camper, too. Makes me miss mine...

  9. You done good thrifting. I had a $10 coupon and got a blouse for $9, but I think you got more bang for your buck! Going camping this weekend and I live in Wisconsin. Have my winter jacket along.

  10. Talk about a bargain shopping trip! Wow! Diane, you spent your $2.52 very well. Love the memo board. What a deal that was! Glad you are getting away for a little bit. Have a wonderful time. laurie

  11. Looks like a little slice of heaven ... & your camper & ours look a lot alike. We love camping & did so 5-10 times per season until a couple yrs ago. We still have our trailer but just haven't been. We've done more vacations/cruise but still miss camping. Btw, good bargains!

  12. You always find the best bargains! I wish we had a Kohl's here! Thanks for the party!
