Friday Frugal Finds: Games + Valentine decor

Excited to share some more frugal finds this week with you!  I even yard sale shopped in January.

I went by a local thrift store (Repairers of Breach) and picked up 2 games and a Scattergories refill pack  – paid $1.00 for each of them.

I was excited to find the Scattergories refill pack as it was filled with extra score sheets and category sheets that were brand new!  Scattergories is a popular game that I find a lot so I am glad to have a box full of category sheets that I can fill up the used games to make them like brand new!

I buy these games when I can find them at prices like this ($2.50 and under) and save them for wedding gifts or just gifts in general.

I also stopped by my parking lot yard sale.  There were not as many booths as normal but still plenty to shop even in January!

I picked up 2 more games for $2.00 each.

Imaginiff board game

See that price tag on the Imaginiff game?  $18.68 – at that price I could only afford to give 1 maybe 2 games as a gift.  But at my $1 and $2 price, I can give a stack of 6-8 games and still be saving myself tons of money!

And I was excited to find this pillow.  The pillow cover zipped up in the back and definitely need some stain remover.  It  took 2 washes to get it clean but I will love using this to decorate for Valentines’s.  Even if the pillow cover didn’t come clean – the pillow form (which I could have used for a placemat pillow) was worth the $1.00 to me.

LOVE yard sale pillow

Any fun finds for you this week?  Did you shop a yardsale in January?  My Value Village 1/2 price day is next Wednesday so I am looking forward to what I will find then.

    Speaking of placemat pillows – thanks for the idea!

    I got a set of 4 at Home Goods for $9.99. I made pillows out of two of them. The other two, I wrapped around a piece of foam core board and lined the back of the tv cabinet to cover the wires!
