  1. Creative juices.

    by , 07-07-2013 at 06:00 PM
    I have always been creative when it comes to restyling my thrift shop finds. Something in me is compelled to change the item once it is in my possession. From clothes, accessories and furniture. I must put my stamp on it. Lately I have been redesigning some of my old pieces as well as my newly purchases items. My one missing weapon is a sewing machine. Once I purchase that, I will be unstoppable. This will broaden my designing skills even further. Here is my master plan to extend ...
  2. Night and Day

    I have always been a thrift shop/garage sale baby. Since moving to another state, the thrift shops in my area leave a little to the imagination. Now that I am visiting my family(I am staying with my son, who happens to live around the corner from a thrift shop, what joy, what rapture), the thrift shops here are like night and day. Where I live, I can get most of my jewelry, purses, shoes and jackets below $5.00. All the clothes are a set price not matter what the style and size. They don't ...

    I finally started a coupon club in my area. I was kinda of disappointed that only two people responded to my ad, but I will keep hope alive. The one person I met, we are on the same page. She is very frugal like me. We discussed a few things and she is going to bring her friends(who could not make the meeting) on board. Since I started back to work, I have talked about the club to some of my friends at work and they are interested. I think with a lot of planning, this thing could go ...
  5. It is so strange

    by , 07-08-2011 at 09:30 PM
    I wonder why people seem to think that because I am thrifty and frugal, there must e something wrong with me. I went shopping armed with my coupons and my friend looked at me strange. She wanted to know was it worth it to clip coupons, watch for sales, and all the other work you might have to do to save the almighty dollar. I just said , to each its own.
