Thrifty Thursday!

Okay, so I didn't get to go thrifting today like I wanted...nappy time was calling, calling and I was lulled by its siren song.

I did, however, make it out Saturday and had a glorious morning! Fueled by a Starbucks Rasberry Mocha Frappuccino (I know - but - it was Starbucks! And I only go there about every three months! And it was only a tall! And, and...I have no excuse. *bowing head in shame* ) Anyway, fueled by that lovely caffiene, I found some yummilicious stuff! Here's my take:

1. Hand Crank Radio/Flashlight - pretty much new in box. The headphones were still wrapped in plastic. Now, I'd priced one for PapaDew (hubby) for Christmas at $29 from LL Bean. My cost? $5.00

2. "I Spy" software - computer game for hyperkid - new in box for $3.00

3. Pirate pop-up/punch-out book for hyperkid - brand new - $2.00

4. 3 stacking storage bins (large, with hinged lids) for doggie treats and such - $1 for the set

5. Large vintage anatomy book with really neat pull-out poster of the different systems labeled and in color for homeschooling - 50 cents

6. Paperback, unabridged copy of Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution (the only way of eating on which I can lose any weight) - 25 cents

7. Paperback Star Wars Book for hyperkid - 25 cents

8. A stack of 12 Birds & Blooms magazine - most never taken out of the wrapper - $1!!! I love this mag but don't subscribe!

and last, but so not least:

9. A stack of 12 Good Old Days magazines - $1! I love this mag too!!!

So, all that for $14. Not bad, huh?!

What treasures have you found lately?

You gotta be kidding me! You and my sister make me sick. LOL I'm a terriable shopper ... treasure seeker. I'm convinced that I do not have this built in radar that you and my sister have searching for the latest deals and steals. Just not fair! LOL (Oh, I hope all who read this comment know I'm joking)

The best thing I found lately ... a new with tags navy dress (originally $98, marked down to $68)... just right for dressy occasions ... for $3.
