Thrifty Things Friday #125

Hi everyone and welcome the TTF Linky party!

TTF CoHost 1

My Co-Host Linda is having a blast I am sure in Paris right now! Woohoo! I can’t wait to see pictures and hear all about her adventures when she returns!

My mom and I went to Value World a couple of weeks ago armed with our “50% off entire purchase” coupons. I’ll tell ya what, these coupons have really been testing my strength and willpower! But, I managed to edit my purchases and keep it down to a decent amount of newly found treasures!



I bought this set of 9 heavy black wicker chargers. I really only wanted four of them but, they wouldn’t break them up. I did not have any black chargers so I was happy to find these. I have an idea what to do with the remaining 5. I share that in a different post (if it works out! LOL).

The set of 9 were priced at $8.98 so, I paid $4.49 for all of them.



I bought this large dark brown platter for $1.24. I actually need platters and thought this would be a nice one to use this Fall.


Right now I am using it on the dining room table with a floral arrangement.



And I just couldn’t walk by this cute little Thanksgiving Day trivet for .30 cents.

I purchased a couple of other things that I will share in the next TTF party.

Okay, let’s see what thriftiness you have to share this week!


  1. Diann,
    What fantastic finds!! Thanks so much for hosting!!

  9. Great job, Diann. Nice purchases for sure! Susan p.s. Thanks for hosting. And yes, by now, Linda is having a blast!

  10. I love your thrifty finds! The Thanksgiving trivet for sixty cents??? Wow! The hunt is fun, but I get a big charge out of seeing what others found too. My husband says my middle name is Sanford. (not many will get that!)

  11. Hi Diann. LOVE your new header for autumn. So pretty. Also love your finds, that platter is lovely. I had trouble deciding which of my posts to link up this week, so went with Easing Into The Autumn Groove since it includes making a wreath that was very low cost. Trying to stick to your theme, of course. :) Have a great weekend, I know Linda is having a blast! -Dawn @ We Call It Junkin
