But done on a Wednesday. Yesterday I stopped at the thrift store after I took my daughter to school. There hasn't been to much there lately. The one fella that volunteers there says all the good stuff goes out the back door. I don't know it that happens in other places but these people that volunteer make sure they get picks and then put out what they don't want. To me it's like stealing because they only pay what they want to give for the items and even though the p rices are good there, it's still not right. These ladies consider themselves as church going abiders that help the less fortunate. Well then don't take what you want and donate what you want when you can put the item out on the floor and get more for it is what I say. It really p****s me off. Ok, sorry about that, It really makes me mad though.
Back to the thrifty finds...
The candlestick , $.50,I will paint black, and the recipe card stand $.50,I'm not sure what I will do with it. The pic frames, $.50/piece, I will leave be and the jar, $1.99, I will put a label and some homespun on the lid. The curtains that are on the door I got for $1.99.
I can't wait for it to get warm and all the sales to start up again. I know I will have a lot of stuff to get rid of. MUST SIMPLIFY!!!! I am a true pack rat and this home is not able to keep everything that I want so I will have a sale for sure. Lots of material and stuff that I pick up and then don't know what to do with.
I have a very small hallway that leads to my basement and I thought about building a small closet in there to store my mop, broom and sweeper instead of it just sitting out there in the way. I am going to attempt this myself, lol. A few two by fours and some nails and I should have a nice closet to put them in. Cross my fingers on that one...I can do it though.
Well, that's all for now...maybe some more later. Must get my assignments done.
Everyone have a good day!
