Shopping the Thrifty Way

"Flours"

Raesha had a fabulous idea that after we dropped our kiddos off at church for their activity, we should go hit some yard sales! Sunny and a potential high of 80 degrees provided yard salers everywhere with perfect yard saling weather. Which offered yard saling customers ample opportunity to spend money!!!

A couple weeks ago Reasha kind of chuckled at me when I told her I had a "list" of things I yard sale for...see she's more of a treasure finder and I'm more of a woman on a mission. But you know what happens to my list when I go saling with a treasure finder? :) I end up with loads of treassures I wasn't even looking for! :)

Raesha found a tiny velvet jacket and skirt set that I bought C-bug for only $2. She also found me this corner shelf($1!) which IS on my list:

corner shlef

That's C holding it up where it will go in her room...as soon as we find the drill charger.

Also found: lidless flour canister (above) that I will probably use for a flower pot because I love puns(25 ¢), a nice big stack of golden books($2), science kit ($1), vintage cloth diaper cover to use for a pattern (25 ¢), 2 canvas bags for grocery shopping ($1.50), 2 shadow boxes ($1 each), and 10 eyelet purple doc martens for c ($2). I think that was it LOL. Keep an eye on Raesha's blog, she scored too!

The shelf is fantastic! I just love the personality of it versus a boring corner shelf. :)

Wow, those are great finds. The shelf is sooo pretty. I hope yard sales will come to Europe soon, we just don't do them here, and that is to bad!
