Treasure Hunting

I hit a few thrift stores last week. I usually don't buy anything for us, unless it's "to die for". I'm trying to get rid of my "junk" not accumulate more. Haha. This last week was a rare week for me. Here's what I found:

First stop Goodwill. Two china plates, $.59 each. I originally bought these to sell on eBay. Once I got home I started to really look at them, then my husband looked at them, then I made the mistake of holding them up on the wall in my kitchen, where.......they looked perfect!! I looked them up for fun on Replacements.Com, they came from a set of 4, and are going for $18 each plate. Sometimes profit has to take a back burner to cuteness. Now I'm on the hunt for the other 2 plates...just as cheap!

Later in the week, I hit a store that has everything priced for $1.97 or less. It's a fun place to treasure hunt. My mom usually finds books at this stop. Anyway, I found these 2 super fun chairs and this Ralph Lauren Polo t-shirt for my son. All priced at......$.97 each!! My kids have been dragging the chairs in and out for the past 2 days. They love them!!

Last thrift stop for the week. My favorite stop!!!!!!! Okay, so I found these super cute Gap "long and lean" jeans in my size. I have recently lost some weight and have NO jeans. There was no fitting room. So at $3, I told myself I'd sell them for a profit "worst case scenario". I get home......they were made just for me. I love them!!!!! I also found a new, never opened, Strawberry Shortcake puzzle (my daughter's birthday is in 2 weeks) for $.50, a, new in package, Fiskars For Kids scissors $.50, and a cute cobalt blue bottle for my kitchen $1.00.

Total spent for the week (on "myself") $9.09.
