Here’s my frugal finds from last week. First up Value Village finds.
I found these games (I buy them to give as gifts as well as buy games for us when I find one we don’t have.)
The Scattergories game by itself was $1.81 and the Scattergories game that was bundled with another game was $2.42. Not sure if I will keep the other game or not.
I found a game at a yard sale that I really wanted to get but she wanted $6 and would only come down to $5. I am spoiled by Value Village prices and have a hard time paying over $2-2.50 for a game! What is your target price for games?
I was super inspired when I house crashed Molly by all her fun pillows on her bed, couches, chairs, everywhere! So I mentally added that to my list as something I really want to start looking intentionally. I always did look for pillows even just to find good pillow forms, but I am really wanting to look for pretty pillows too!
I found these 2 pillows at Value Village – one was 99¢ and the other one was $1.49. They were both in great shape. And the brown one goes very well in my living room. The blue one I think may be an outdoor pillow and I may end up using it on my front porch bench.
By the way, when I buy pillows, or any kind of linens especially, at thrift stores or yard sales, I bring them inside in the bag that I bought them in and go straight upstairs to the laundry room. I wash them immediately in hot water, and dry on high heat. No sitting around in my house at all. You don’t want to risk bed bugs!
Then I found these 2 containers at a yardsale for $1.00. The blue one is actually Tupperware brand and was $1.00. The other one is Rubbermaid brand but I find that I use these pourable type containers all the time for cereal and other things. You can see I had already put it to use after I washed it, before I could even get a picture of it!
Here’s a few highlights from the linkup from last week.
Blue Willow House found this pink depression measuring cup from the 1930’s at Goodwill! You won’t believe how much she paid – click over and see!
House of Hawthornes found this metal sap bucket and vintage metal lunch box – putting the dahlias in the bucket was an accident but I LOVE that look!
We Call It Junkin’ had someone give her this vintage pyrex.
Now it’s your turn! Link up your frugal find or how you transformed or decorated with a thrift store, yard sale, or frugal find.
