Thrifted Thursday

Oh, boy – we made out good this week, and I just had to share!

Found: at the Bed, Bath, and Beyond Clearance store – At last! After 2 1/2 years of marriage, we have full set of dishes! Originally $60, we got the whole box for $13, ’cause the serving bowl was broken. That’s less than $0.25 a piece – better than thrift store prices! They look so good on my blue tile table. :)


Found: At the Salvation Army – the last piece of baby equipment to add to our collection -$22. We borrowed a bassinet for Jesse, but now we have our own for the baby. Yes, I know it’s blue. It doesn’t matter. If we have a girl, I will put a pink ribbon on it, OK?


Most Fun Find: a Ravensburger block puzzle – $2. I had one of these when I was little – a treasured gift from my Aunt Beverly. So, I couldn’t resist getting this for my boy so he could have the same hours of fun.
