Thrifty Thursday

Lil' Guy and I are enjoying our rediscovered freedom.
We made a spontaneous trip to
one of our favorite thrift stores this week.
He's on the hunt for electrical equipment
for one of his many projects.
His momma looks for practical items
that can be used everyday.

A few kitchen items were found for around $4.
The best part is that they are all
"Made in the USA".
I just couldn't turn down the Ball jars
and we needed a larger grater.
The Pyrex bowl was in perfect condition!

These sturdy magazine holders
were picked up for 50 cents each.
A project was in order to help them match
 the industrial look in Lil' Guy's room.

We use what we have.
This silver duct tape has been waiting for just such a project.

This magazine rack was purchased
a while back to use in Lil' Guy's room.
That didn't work so well,
as it is more designed for holding hardback books.
His Lego magazines can now be better
organized and maintained.

Thrifting is a wonderful way to find
American-made items.
The money you save is motivating enough,
but thinking about keeping things out of the landfill
by giving them a new home is the icing on the cake.
It might even bring back a few great memories.
Happy thrifting, y'all!
