It’s Friday – time to share some frugal finds with you!
I stopped last Friday at a quick yard sale on my way to town.
I spent a whopping three quarters! 25¢ for the frame and 50¢ for the container.
I loved the mason jar type canister (especially for 50¢). We had just been talking on facebook earlier that day about a large Ball jar I had seen at Hobby Lobby that would make a good canister. So I was excited to pick this one up for 50¢. Now to decide what to store in it!
I had missed the last 2 Saturdays at my parking lot yard sale due to rain so I was looking forward to shopping again. And it didn’t disappoint.
I stopped at the space that sells things for charity. They sell most things for 25¢. I immediately spotted this white vintage suitcase! I asked what they wanted for it and they said they were having a “pack a bag for a $1.00” sale, so I could pack a suitcase for a $1.00. SOLD! I found a few other small things to stash inside. A old book of Psalms beautifully illustrated, a glasses case, and 2 mason spice/salt/pepper jars. So I paid about 20¢ each – great deal!
And I managed to find a few books at another space. Lots of Bible story books for my nieces – 25¢ each. $2.75 for all of these.
So there was my big spending of the week! I spent $4.50 and came home with a bunch of small treasures. Yes, I love yard sale shopping!
I am planning another yard sale/thrift shopping day for anyone that wants to come in September. So stay tuned for that announcement!
Did you find anything fun this week? I love to see what others find too so share it in the comments!
