70. Get 5 decorative items for my home. (3/5)
I have been on this thrift store/garage sale kick for a while now and haven't really found anything worth buying. I have been to every thrift store between work and home several times. To me a lot of the items seem to be over priced. One store had a lamp for $25 and you can pick up a new one for about that same price. Well, I stopped by a store last night on my way home and I struck gold. I wasn't even planning on buying anything but they were having a 25% off everything, 50% clothes and 60% furniture. I've been looking for a smaller desk, a buffet table and a lamp but not luck. I did come across two new throw pillow for my couch, $2.44 each. A toss in the washing machine and they look brand new. Even my DD loves them, she still loves her pillow pet more so it's on top.
I also picked up a pair of shoes for DS, only $2. A toy bucket for the beach now they will each have one. Plus, a few other items for around the house that I plan on re-doing (stay tuned). I bought a total of 9 items for $14.82. I hate spending money and usually feel guilty when I do. I had that feeling this time as well but I know that it was all worth it.
