Thrifty Things Friday # 143

Hi everyone!

TTF CoHost 1

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

Okay, here is a shocker for you. I like to hunt down and find pretty thrifty treasures! I know, you are stunned! Well, probably not! LOL However, I am really cutting back on the things I buy and purging out the things that I have.

Another thing I try to do is to use my pretty little things in ways they aren’t necessarily meant to be used. like I recently bought this small silver plated tiered server.


It has some damage to the silver plate but, it was .50 cents and I had the perfect purpose to use it.


I use it to hold my watches.


I use a couple of these type tiered servers for jewelry, Bracelets are in one and the other one has fun rings and pins. They look pretty, I can get to it easily when I want to actually use them as servers and they aren’t getting stored away.

How about you? Do you use different treasure finds for things rather than their intended purpose?

Remember, I feature different post linkups each day at The Thrifty Groove Facebook page. I only feature posts that have a direct link back to this party. So, please always include a link back.


Today is the last day to join last weeks Social Network party ~ Facebook. Click over to link up if you want and build some followers. Tomorrow will be SNP ~ Pinterest. So, if you would like more folks to follow your boards on Pinterest and to check out some fun new boards, come back tomorrow and link up!

Okay, let’s have some fun and show off your thriftiness!


  1. What a great find!!! It's silver and it's tiered! Perfect for so many things!

    Please pop over and share you post with Project Inspire{d} at
    Wishing you An Extraordinary Day!

  2. Hi lovely lady.
    Looks like you had a great find !! Thanks so much for hosting your linky party for us tonight. Hoping you and your family have a wonderful week.

  3. Love that you used this for your watches and jewelry. PERFECT!

  4. I use many things for something other than their intended purpose. Cut glass trays are great for pretty perfume/cologne bottles or jewelry, and small containers for soap dishes, rings. etc.
    Thanks for hosting.

  5. I also love using things in ways other then intended! I have a 3 sectioned pottery dish and I love it on my dresser for little 'things'!!

  6. Thank you so much Diann for the party...have a great weekend!!!
