Welcome to the #142 TTF party! Linda and I are so glad you joined us. There were some awesome linkups last week! If you are unaware, I sneak in a featured post everyday on my TTG FB page. so stop by and see if you were featured!
I know a lot of you out there are like me and love, love, love to find decorating/styling/crafting etc. type books at rock bottom bargain prices! I recently bought a bag of books at one of our local libraries and a couple of them were decorating books.
The whole bag of books (about 16) was $1.00! Can’t beat that with a stick!!
This is one of them that I picked up.
Now, I have to admit, this designer’s style so not my style.
He is very ornate. I like a little ornate here and there.
His picture, the designer, so does not fit with his design. LOL
But, it was fun to look through and get little ideas or some inspiration.
Now that I have scanned the things that I wanted to keep for future ideas, I am re-thrifting this book for someone else to enjoy it.
Do you scan specific pages from books like this or magazines and keep them in an “inspiration” folder on your computer? I started doing this about a year ago when I decided it was time to let go of my “getting out of control” stack of hard cover decorating books.
When you get these types of books or magazines and there are only a few different things in them that you want for reference, scan them, save to a folder and then donate the book or magazine so someone else can enjoy it! It helps keep down clutter, frees up space and keeps you better organized. And that my friends helps you find a better balance in your life!
And don’t forget to stop by tomorrow and join the Social Network party! You can click the picture below to see what it is all about!
Okay everyone, show us your thriftiness!
