Thrifty Thursday

Thought I would join in with Leigh @ Tales of Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday. Nothing real exciting, but did get these 2 magazine holders for "free". I asked how much and she said just take them. She was more interested in getting rid of stuff, than making money - major clean out. I already have several, but mine are a frosted acrylic (?). I will probabley offer these to my daughter.
Found this wooden basket in the clearance section of HL a few weeks ago. Originally $4.99, and I paid $1. I originally planned to spray it satin black to go with the redos for my 1/2 bath, but decided against it as it is a different style.
This is my little contribution to "Thrifty Thursday". Lets go over to see what Leigh and the other participants have to share .
Short post today. To much going on right now that I have no control over and there is nothing I can do to make things better. Can't say that I have accomplished much today. Ok - I will take a deep breath - maybe tomorrow will be better.
Hope you are having a great week.

I am smitten with that basket! I don't think I have ever seen one so unique. Unfortunately, no HL near me. They don't have stores this far south. Can you imagine???

Jane said...

Good find on the magazine holders. The way I buy magazines, one can never have too many!

I hope things go better for you today. We're here for you.
Thanks for sharing!

I do have to say that HL is one of the few places I CAN shop retail because they have such DEEEP discount prices when they clear out that it is like a thrift store if not better...sometimes! Great finds. Thanks for visiting :-)

Cass @ That Old House said...

Adorable little basket, but I really like those magazine holders. I could use a full-time, paid magazine wrangler here -- I have WAY too many!

Wonderful finds. Glenda, it's okay not to accomplish something all the time, don't you think? Hope you have a happy and relaxing weekend, dear.

Sure can't beat "free"-that's what I call a bargain! That cute little basket was practically free too! I'd say you had a good weekend. laurie

Hi Glenda,
You always find the best HL bargains! I used to find wonderful things there ... need to put it back on my list of places to check often.

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Hi Glenda! Sorry I haven't been around lately! You always get such great buys! Do we ever have control?!? I've had to give over some things lately to the Lord and just keep praying! I hope things get better soon! God Bless! Lauralu :)
