Bargain Tuesday

I had an overwhelmingly long weekend. I don’t think I did much beyond work, eat, sleep. Today was my day off (YIPEE!) So after sleeping in and spending some time with the Hubby I went off to the Thrift Store to find some deals, steals, and project materials. I had read this article yesterday, “Thrift Store Shopping Tips”, and it really helped me focus and get the most out of an hour and a half today. I went with a plan and a budget and came home happy and successful. Here is a look at what I got today:

Above are some amazing fabrics that I carried around the Thrift Store for a while. A sheet, curtain, and bundle of burlap. In the end they weren’t some thing I could use right away (my sewing machine can’t handle fabric that thick and the one I borrowed I have already returned) and they don’t fit in to any of the projects I was planning on doing this week. So in the end I said no, and I’m totally ok with that.

This is my treasure haul from the day. I spent a total of $17.17

Thrift Store:

Dress pants for work (2.42)

Curtain for the bedroom window (3.33)

Shirt for an upcycle project (1.91)

Floral tote bag (1.41)

Garden Ridge:

A reusable shopping bag for my trips to Aldi (0.14)

Canvas art for the bedroom (0.69)

Curtain rod (2.99)

Decor for the Dinning Room (2.99)

Garden Ridge was having 90% off of Clearance. I picked up this 3 piece wall decor set. It was good quality, nothing wrong with it.

Originally $29.99. I paid $2.99. Even the cashier was impressed.

Here is how it looks in our Dinning Room.

I installed the curtain in our bedroom. Galao helped.

The lighting isn’t the greatest, but here is the canvas art hung on the bedroom wall. I might end up painting over it in the future.

For now it matches the new curtain.

This bag was my second favorite find of the day. It is a canvas tote bag with 6 pockets, a plastic water resistant/washable inside, and “holes” in the bottom of each pocket. I think it will be great as a mini beach tote or a quick purse/baby bag. For those days when you don’t want to drag everything with you, but have easy access to anything. And its a cute design.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my deals and steals today. Get out there and let me know what YOU find!
