Thrifty Thursday #30

     Good morning!

     A friend once told me about a tip that she read stating that when you get something new, you should get rid of something you have. This keeps you from having too much. For the last month, I have been putting stuff to get rid of in a box - little things that are just sitting around that we no longer need. I took this box to the thrift store while I was out and about. Then I went in the thrift store to see what they had. And I picked up a few things. . . since I had just gotten rid of a box of stuff!:)

I found this pack of planks- I believe it was a shelf board that somebody cut up. These will make perfect canvases for a project I've been wanting to do. The edges are nice and straight and don't even need to be sanded. I got 5 of them for a quarter.

I was browsing and found this old muffin tin in the middle of a pile of plates. Only 50 cents. Isn't it a beauty?

There was something about the print on this container that called out to me. I was reluctant to claim it because I didn't want to spend $4 on it, but when I asked, the thrift store lady gave me a discount and let me get it for $3. It looks like it's covered in a bunch of foreign labels, but it's fabric. I'll use it to hold supplies in my craft room.

     I've started another box so as I'm cleaning and sorting, I can get rid of some more stuff. Isn't the saying, if you haven't used an item in a year (or  5 years) you don't need it anymore?

    Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this,
not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother's way.

I'm afraid I can't follow that rule all the time but it always feels good to get rid of a box, doesn't it? Today I took a big basket-ful to the consignment shop. I love that I can make a little money/store credit on some things I was going to get rid of anyway! :)
