Final Bit of Thrifting Before the Move
This weekend while taking my Mother-in-law to the greenhouse to buy flowers (and wishing I could buy pretty plants too but due to the move can only look) what should appear in front of me but a yard sale just a couple houses down from mine - and the kind that actually has good stuff for sale!
I would have bought a bunch of stuff had we not been moving - instead my only purchases were these two seagrass baskets for .25 cents each.
Even hubby likes them - even though officially we are not buying "stuff" right now. I count these as containers for stuff we already own and are moving (one can justify anything if you want it enough). I don't have a traditional jewellery box so maybe one for earrings and one for necklaces.
I found the final book in the Stieg Larsson trilogy for $4 in hardcover - my last book purchase of 2012 (unless for resale for .25 cents or less as I am planning on doing a flea market). Mom and I have read books one and two and have been looking for book 3 at thrift stores. When we are done we will likely sell it for the same price.
This book was a freebie - someone at work brought in a box of books free for the taking. I fished this one out for hubby but will likely read it myself.
Things are getting a bit crazy for hubby and I - some executive decisions to be made this week regarding our move that I will share with you as soon as things are finalized. Stay tuned!
