The month, you might be surprised at the restraint I showed.
Remember when I mentioned I can pass up anything that is Tiffany Blue? The same can be said of globes. For $3.99, this globe needed to do little else to convince me to put it into my shopping cart and take it home.
One reason I showed some restraint this month was due to being preoccupied with Grace's preschool Fall Party. Since I had goodie bags for her classmates, I thought I should also give something to her teachers. If you ever need baskets, go to Goodwill. I scored these 2 baskets for $3 and filled them with my father in-laws gourds. Not a bad teacher's gift for a $3 investment, right?
For $3.99, I bought this monkey costume...
And turned it into a pig costume.
I found this made in Italy chalkboard for .99 cents. I think I might use it for a prop in pictures.
Did I mention if you need baskets to check out Goodwill? I wanted a basket to store my blankets in and for $2.99, this was perfect.
I've been fairly reasonable so far, right?
Well, this is where you may need to step in.
For .99 cents, I bought this brand new sweet 6 month old outfit. Of course, Grace will never be able to squeeze into it but it was too cute to pass up and did I mention, it was only a dollar?
I promise, for the rest of this post, my senses returned and I continued to make reasonable purchases.
I added a few glass jars to my collection. This jar was .99 cents. For now, I put my extra lavender from my DIY lavender sachets inside.
The glass jar with the lid below was also .99 cents. I filled it with a succulent and added it to my greenhouse window.
I guess, the key, for me, in showing thrift shopping restraint is to plan more preschool parties and make more pig costumes.
Until next month, happy thrifting.
