Good Monday to you all!

I told you yesterday that last week had been busy......too beat to blog but I did take pictures so here's what I was up to while I wasn't in front of my fact this was from over a week ago when I went to the Garden Club sale........this is a very interesting set of books for the grandchildren to have when they're here.  It's from the 1970's and it is called The Bookshelf For Boys and Girls.  There are 9 volumes and each one is different.  There's Stories and Songs, Nature and Science, Things to Make  and much more.  I thought it was from the 50's from the illustrations.  It's in excellent condition and I think I got each book for .50 or maybe .75
 Actually, there were 2 phenomenal "bargains of the day" t.v. in my kitchen had died awhile back and I have only one t.v. now that I cart back and forth between the living room and my bedroom.  I really wanted a little t.v. in the kitchen again but couldn't see spending the money.  Lo and behold guess what I got for $5.00 at the sale?  An exact duplicate of my kitchen t.v. except this one is black and my old one was white!  Do you believe it?  It works perfectly for only $5.00!  I was overjoyed!
The second bargain of the day was a bed frame for my guest bed.  I had sold the bedroom set but didn't realize that the headboard and frame were all one piece.  So my mattress and box springs have been sitting on the floor for quite awhile now.  I priced frames at Walmart but they wanted $70.00 and I just couldn't part with $70.00 at the time.  I got a frame with wheels for $5.00 (an older much sturdier one than the one at Wal-Mart)!  I know!!!!  Amazing right?
Even though it was a couple weeks ago I still get excited about the deals I got for things I needed.
I am one lucky gal.....the thrift store angels were definitely with me that day!
I also got this basket for .25 I think.......
and these 2 golf books for my son-in-law for his birthday.
That day will stick in my memory for a long time!  There's nothing like a great bargain for something you've actually been shopping for and need.....what a feeling!  I hope you enjoyed my "thrifty" adventure.  TTYL!


  1. Bargains! I love the garage sale season! I am collecting "stuff" for a that is fun! Happy Mothers Day a day late!! :)
