Thrifty Treasures

Ahh Goodwill how I love you so! Garage sales may waste my time but you never fail me. You always have something waiting for me when I stop by!
I paid 3.99 for this bad boy and…..

I was sooo happy when I found these. They are the exact colors I use in my Christmas décor ok and my home décor as well! They still had the price tag on the bottom. I paid .50 each but the original tag says these little ladies are from the Container Store and used to be $5.00 a pop. I’m not going to want to part with them when Christmas rolls around. Maybe I’ll wrap some of Kent’s gifts in them so we can keep them in the fam. I know, I’m bad!


Ahh, I could not pass up these beauties! The tall jar was $2.19 and the small canister was $1.00. The book was $2.00, more than I was planning on paying for an old book but it’s the 1st one I’ve found that I love so I snatched it up.
I’ve been on the hunt for old books for some time now. I’m being a little picky. I want some that are colorful and have fun prints or fonts on the cover. This one fits all my categories.

All glass items were .59! I thought the glass bowls would be great for dips or sauces when we have company. It’s hard to tell from the picture but parts of the stems are silver plated. The Christmas tags were .50. I already have some like them that I bought a Target last year. I think I paid $2.00 so .50 for a new box is a steal!
Oh and just an F.Y.I all Christmas items are 25% off at Goodwill

$1.00 at Goodwill. Sorry it’s a bad picture. I just cleaned it and looks like my dish towel left some fuzzies behind. I love the shape of this dish!

.59 cents! This one will be tucked away in my closet until I come up with a master plan for it.

Today I’m linking up with Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures!

  2. I know how you feel about garage sales. I'm setting a limit for myself now on how many I'll go to because I usually find nothing at them and waste 1/2 a tank of gas driving back and forth! The thrift store has been my saving grace lately :).

    Everything you got is so cute! I especially love the little glass bowls and that book is to die for - how cute, and what a steal on those Christmas bags!
