I’ve been trying to stay away from thrift stores and my favorite ReStore lately. If you’ve been following along for my organizational challenge, you know I’m purging and organizing rather than collecting more. I will say however, that I have had a few moments of weakness and have purchased some little things.
My first and biggest purchase was actually made last fall so it doesn’t count against me.
I had been looking for a trunk for my boys room and when I saw this one it was on sale at my ReStore and I knew I wouldn’t be going home without it.
It stores a ton of stuff…their instruments, my youngest son’s golf bag (it is new to him and he can’t bear to put it in the garage yet!), and some bigger toys.
I used my old washboard in my laundry room makeover so I picked this little one up for $3 to have on hand for an unknown upcoming project!
The picture frame was only $.50 and I think they look so cute just sitting on a shelf empty. Not sure if I will paint this one or add some chicken wire or something…the possibilities are plentiful!
This glass vase came in a set of two for only $.50. I was so excited because I’ve seen so many ideas on pinterest for these and then a pillow fight broke out in my house and the set of two was down to one lonely vase…urggg!! Oh well, I better enjoy these moments with the crazy boys because I’m sure I’ll wish they were back when they’re gone!
My old Folger’s coffee can is my prize possession. It was holding drill bits at ReStore and I asked one of the volunteers if they would sell it to me. He threw a $.25 price sticker on it and it was mine!! I love it in my coffee corner…so fun!
Have you found any great deals lately?? It’s getting close to the end of the month and my local American Cancer Society Thrift store puts all their stuff 50% off the last few days of the month…I may just have to stop and browse. I’ll let you know if I find anything good!
