Thrifty Things Friday #132

Hi everyone!

TTF CoHost 1

Well, it has been a busy week here at Casa Chaos! I foolishly thought once the Farmer Market season dwindled down, we would slow down a bit. Nope! We do have our final two Farmer’s Markets this week. Tomorrow will be a fun Scarecrow Festival at the market. And then Sunday will be the last summer farmers market for us. We have been in touch with several communities that are starting winter markets a couple of times a month so, we will be doing some markets here and there.

Although I have some new thrifty finds to share, I have not had a whole lot of time to do little photo shoots with them. I did however take a picture of this recent find because I used this past week for taco condiments.


A 4 section serving tray.


Cute summer time fruit designs. Someone got it this summer and now that summer is over, donated it. I actually use these types of sectional dishes at least once a week. They come in handy for different dinner meals.


It was priced at $2.00 but, it was purple sticker day so I paid $1.00 for it. I am happy with my purchase.

How about you? did you find a new thrifty treasure? Try a new thrifty recipe? Learn a new thrifty tip? Linda and I are looking forward to reading all about it!

And remember to drop by my new TTG FB page and give it a “like”. Yup, I am trying to build up that facebook page. It is where I post my daily features from this party.

On with the show!
