Just a couple of Dollar Tree finds!

Just wanted to share what I found at the Dollar Tree recently. It’ not much, just 2 different items….but they are just so cute that I wanted to share!

Now, technically I am not sure what you would call these…maybe candle holders? {I found them near the candles and such.} I thought that they were just so pretty and iridescent. Won’t they look really cute with a succulent planted inside? Also a cute way to store office or craft supplies. I just LOVE them! πŸ™‚ read more

Welcome Y’all{Hobby Lobby Find!}

Look at this super cute sign that I picked up at Hobby Lobby not too long ago. It was part of their clearance of the “Spring” line. This was 90% off! I paid only $2.99. Isn’t that crazy?I love clearance sales, don’t you!?

Now, if you walk into Hobby Lobby, there may be some great clearance finds left, but you will now mostly see Autumn and Christmas items on the shelves. Are you ready for that? My hobby Lobby started putting all of that out in June. A bit early for my taste…but hey, now it is the middle of August, so maybe it’s okay! πŸ˜‰

I picked up a large clear one, too {not shown.} I think I might use them in my garden in one way or another—but am not sure exactly what I’ll do it. So many possibilities! πŸ˜€

Super Awesome Bargain!

I have to share this really cute purse that I found on clearance at Kohl’s! It is a Vera Wang purse in a sort of ombre purplish color.

I picked it up because the color caught my eye. When I saw the price, I almost fainted..haha!

$4.36!!

Can you believe it!? I had to have it! It looked like it had been marked down previously, because I know that a Vera Wang purse isn’t that cheap.
I took it up to the register and it scanned the clearance price. Yay! I also had a 20% off coupon that I used. Seriously…is that not the best deal ever!? πŸ˜€

Just had to share. It really is worth it when shopping to always check out the clearance section. I wasn’t even going to on this day because honestly, I didn’t need another purse. So glad I did, though. πŸ˜‰

A cute dress from the thrift store {thrifty find!}

The other day my oldest daughter and I went to our most favorite local thrift store. I always like to look in the craft section and at books. Okay, I really look at almost everything!
We went over to the kids’ clothing and found LOTS of goodies. Here is one of them…

The minute she saw this dress, she wanted it. She tried it on and it looked so cute on her. Only $6.99!

It was in great condition, too! We founds lots–all for her! {Well, I did find me one top,} but she found herself lots of cute things. I’ll have to share those as soon as I take pics, for sure! πŸ˜‰

Do you have any great thrift stores in your area?

Random bargains I’ve found recently!

So I am really bad about posting these AS I find them. I know I have many other things that I wanted to share, but now have to go and dig them all up–haha! I remembered this one…a cute top…because I wore it the other day. πŸ˜‰

Who else gets excited when Kohl’s has an awesome clearance sale? ME! A lot of times you can find cute tops marked way down. Add a coupon on top of that and you can pay next to nothing at times! {Actually I should start a tab on my blog for all of the Kohl’s clearance finds, because I have found so many awesome things in that store alone! πŸ˜€ }

This top cost me $3.80. It is what you see in the picture. A layered look. A navy blue sheer top on top of a silky tank. πŸ™‚

It’s pretty comfortable. I just threw on some jeans and boom I was ready to go. A change from my regular yoga pants for sure–haha!

Also this! Fell in love with it!

Something for the table…to hold fruit or what not.

I absolutely LOVE thrift shopping. You can say that it is a “hobby” of mine. I love finding bargains! {But who doesn’t!?} πŸ˜€

I do have more things to share, and will post those soon!

{New} Thrift Store Finds!

I go thrift shopping weekly. Sometimes more often. I love being able to find a bargain. I am obsessed with it–haha!

Here are a few of my latest finds…..

Joy Mangano Travel Bag
This bag appears to be brand new. No marks, scuffs, anything. Perfect for travel or a weekend away! $6.99

Thrift Store find! :D

This basket…
I love it because it is divided. Great for many uses. Right now I am using it to hold craft supplies. In the summer, it will be used outside for napkins, utensils, etc…when eating outdoors. $2.99 πŸ˜‰

Basket

MOD Camera Strap
I am so excited to have found this. It was obviously brand new from Target. {Still in packaging} $6.99 is better than the $34.99 it costs at my Target store.

Large Leatherette Journal – $3 find @ Walmart

I came across these at Walmart while checking out the school supplies they had on clearance.

Journal

They were $3 each. Normally $5, I believe. Anyhow, you know I love my paper products so I wanted to give these a try. The colors really spoke to me. That is really what made me notice them at first. After thumbing through it, I saw that the pages were nice and thick. I was actually surprised! Boom! They went into my cart. πŸ˜‰

Journal

They have a nice hard cover as well. I’m not actually sure what I will use them for quite yet. Maybe a doodle journal? Trust me, they will be put to use. πŸ˜‰

My latest Dollar Tree finds!

Who doesn’t love Dollar Tree? I try to hit it up at least once a month just to see if I am missing out on anything. Sometimes more if I am at the Hobby Lobby right next door to it. πŸ˜‰

So this last time I went to Dollar Tree was about 4 or 5 days ago. I usually check out the office supply section to see if there are any good ink pens in stock. Believe it or not, I have come across some good ones. {I am a pen hoarder, so I am always looking for a good pen.} πŸ˜€ Nothing this time, but I did come across a few items that I was excited to find in other parts of the store. Check it out!

Milani Eyeshadow and Maybelline eyeliner {sorry about the lighting!}

Dollar Tree finds

I love makeup, which is funny because I don’t wear it everyday. Still love it, though! Finding decent makeup at Dollar Tree CAN happen. Not always, but sometimes. πŸ˜‰

Kool-Aid Jammers

Kool-Aid Jammers

My kids love these! I can’t believe the whole ten pack was at the Dollar Tree {for $1!} Yes, I checked. Not expired, nothing wrong with them at all. It is a “Scary Blackberry” which came out around Halloween, but so what? Blackberry is yummy–and they were still good. I picked up 7! πŸ˜€

I picked up a few other random items while at Dollar Tree, but nothing super exciting. I’ll probably be going back again sometime next week–just to see if there is anything new.

Oh, I did find Valentine Washi Tape there! THAT–to me is a good find. I am a pen and paper, washi taping girl! πŸ˜‰
Check them out!

Valentine Washi Tape

Cute, right?

Maybe next post I’ll list all of the fun things you can actually do with washi tape. It’s super fun stuff!

Anyway, that would be it for now. I realize that I am very behind on my “Thrifty Shopping” posts, and will remind myself to keep them up! You can remind me, too if you like! Too-Da-Loo!

Why was this not a hit?

I can’t for the life of me figure out why my hubby didn’t like this awesome sweater blanket hoodie shirt! I was perusing Goodwill and came across it. I though it would be FABULOUS to wear at Christmas time, so I texted a picture of it to him. LoL! πŸ˜€

Untitled

In all honesty, I really didn’t think it was THAT bad. It has a nice wintery vibe to it. I however knew that he would not go for it, though. πŸ™‚

What do you think? πŸ˜‰

Craft Tape from Target–but not really from Target!

I was super excited to find this cute set of craft tape a.k.a. faux washi from a local thrift store. {This set was originally from Target.} I just love when I can find new items for super cheap! I mean, who wouldn’t?! πŸ™‚

Craft tape!

Perfect for my planner–since you know I love my precious, uh, I mean my planner! πŸ˜€

Oh, and these were $2.00 for all!

Planner Goodies-thrifty finds!

You know I am a huge lover of thrift stores. It’s a place that I feel I need to go to on a weekly basis (or more!) πŸ˜‰
Here are a couple of my latest finds. For those of you who are planner nuts (like me), you’ll be able to appreciate this! These items were an extra 20% off the price marked. Crazy, right?

These calendar pages can be converted to fit my Arc planner (when needed.) The great thing is, I can save them to use later, because they are undated.

I might need to go grab more of those stickers (for swaps and such.)

Just sharing my finds with you. You never know what you’ll run across in a thrift store. πŸ˜‰

Super Cute (NEW) Sandals {A thrifty find!}

Thrifty Find{NEW!}

Are these not the cutest sandals? The best part is that they are NEW {Target sandals), and I got them at a local thrift store for $3! I am usually a flip-flop wearer, but I saw these and thought that they would be cute with several things in my closet. πŸ˜‰

I just love finding bargains! Don’t you? Just thought I would share! Go check out your thrift stores and see what goodies you can find, too! πŸ™‚

A Thrifty Find {Kids books!}

I always, without fail visit the book section every time I visit any thrift store. These are my recent finds. πŸ˜‰

Charlotte’s Web. This is a large read along edition. It’s a hardcover with a jacket, and only $2! I love Charlotte’s web, and my girls do too! πŸ˜€

Books about Unicorns are always a winner. These were only .50 each!

And of course, even though my girls already have Bibles and Bible story books, I really liked this one for only .75. I couldn’t resist; I just like older books, and you all know how I love to collect old Bibles and Bible story books. πŸ˜‰ The graphics in this are nice, too.

If I keep collecting books, I’ll have no place to put them, haha! At thrift store prices, you can’t resist, right? Check out your local thrift stores to see what gems you can find. πŸ˜‰
