I took advantage of the MLK day sales and spent the whole day thrifting. In 6 hours I traveled 35 mile, visited 10 stores and spent $49.06.
So what did I purchase?
I bought 4- 99 cent sweaters at Goodwill. 2 of them were donated to the Union Gospel Mission along with socks, emergency ponchos and shaving cream. I recently saw a youtube video on upcycling sweaters into mittens. I used the green sweater to make 3 hats and 2pair of mittens. These also were donated to UGM.
Even though I don’t need any more polar fleece, I’m a sucker for a good deal. I picked up three pieces in colors that will compliment colors and patterns I already have. They were half price I HAD to get them.Arrow is 5 months old now and we have started Obedience School. One of the things we need for class is a Long Lead. I found a purse handle at St. Vincent de Paul for 50 cents that I sewed onto some webbing (from a previous thrifting excursion). They cost $35 retail, mine came to $1.50 and took an half hour at the most to make.She also got a toothbrush, tooth paste and a travel water dish.
At the pet store tooth paste is $8.99 and the bowl is $3.99.
I kept a navy blue sweater for myself I also found a pair of pants, NEW with tags originally marked $26.00. I paid $6.00.
In the near future I hope to make both pants and shorts from this bolt of light blue brushed denim $8.00, I COULDN’T pass it up. There’s probably enough fabric for a third project as well
As if it hadn’t already been a productive day I found 26 cents too. A quarter at Value Village and a penny at Goodwill.
Do you take advantage of SALE DAYS at the thrift stores?
