Thrift Store Finds and Treasures

                                                               Thrifting is Wonderful


Today, I went thrifting with my sister. We visited the Salvation Army. The first thing I do is to check the 50% off color(s). Then start my adventure. Most of the time I have a list of necessary finds for the home or children. This trip was pure pleasure. So, I hit the areas that would peak my interest the best kitchen, knick knacks, and book section not forgetting electronics and furniture. I skipped the clothing area this time around. I had no kiddos and was feeling pretty good. The store had lots to look at and many idea's for home. What I ultimately found to my delight was 2 wood dollhouse miniature tables and 4 Alpha Omega Lifepac History & Geography books for grade 3 units 6-9. Although, I don't home school. I do give my children activities and lessons especially during the summer time.

I spent 1.99 for each dollhouse miniature wood table and .99 cents for each book for the summer. I am also adding a video where I found a few other goodies on another trip this week.

This is a friendly reminder to change those clocks. This is also a great time to think of what plants, vegetables, or fruit you would like to grow and start getting ready. As a beginner I am always educating myself with the best ways to grow food. This will be my first time doing this and Im excited to see what happens. I have talked to a few people, read, and watched videos. I feel confident that this will be a good experience and new adventure for me to say the least. Mind you I dont even have real house plants so this is a great undertaking for me and I will relish the experience.
Since I will be planting on my deck I will be using pots. Something similar to this photo above. As a renter I dont want to dig up their yard,lol. This looked reasonable and manageable to me. I look forward to sharing photos of my efforts.
