I am thankful for thrifting, for so many reasons. So today’s 10 things of thankful is all about the things that make me Thankful for Thrifting! (that’s a lot of Th’s!!)
Mostly because #1. it’s FUN.
#2. It’s also cheap.
#3. I find things that I’d never find otherwise.
#4. Also, buying jeans for prices like $1.50, 3.00, and 5.oo makes me feel justified in buying a pair of Miss Me Jeans which I have coveted for so long! As long as almost all of my wardrobe is SUPER cheap, I don’t feel guilty about splurging on these awesome jeans.
On Thursday’s visit to our favorite thrift shop, I bought:
#5. Two pair of denim capri pants. One for me, one for Shelbie.
#6. One pair of jeans.
#7. One navy blue shirt.
#8. We also got a t-shirt, a pair of yoga pants, and a pair of cargo shorts for hubby.
The grand total for everything was $11.40.
#9. I also got crafty with some thrift store finds. I love to buy pretty plates and bowls. Sometimes you can find sets, but sometimes I find just ONE beautiful piece and I just have to have it, even though I don’t have anything to do with it. I can only hang so many plates on the wall.
But I saw this idea on Facebook, and thought it was the perfect way to use my mismatched dishes.
I MADE THIS! =O
I found several of these glass dishes with the letter “B” etched on them. Our last name is Bush.
So I got several of them, not sure what exactly I’ll use them for.
And last but not least…#10!
The kick-butt Miss Me Jeans that I definitely did NOT find at a thrift store (oh, I wish!!).
Cost: Under $5.00!!**
(I don’t know what brand the boots are, the name was on the inside sole and has rubbed off.)
I heart thrifting!!
