  1. Night and Day

    by , 06-21-2012 at 06:07 PM
    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 ...
  2. It is about to pick up

    Things have not been going right. Started garage selling last month. I was able to pick up two racks, some jewelry, three purses, two pairs of shoes, books and some miscellaneous items, This while going late(after 11 am). Lately I have not had the chance to do a lot of thrift, garage hopping and couponing. Espically with the coupons. It seems like they are again going through some transformation. One week, I did not buy any papers. I seem to giving away more coupons than I am using. My ...
  3. Happy and Frugal

    In my quest for frugal new, I also have been concentrating on my personal accessories. This has inspired me to use my talents to buy beauty products for the outside as well as the inside. Most of my coupons have been used to buy groceries.

    For the month of March, my discounts have not been deep. It seems like I find most of the deals toward the end of the month, rather than the beginning.

    I started out buying vitamins. For the past several months, Kmart, Walgreen’s ...
  4. The endofthe month

    I have doubled my efforts to save more and spend less this year. A new saving pattern for myself and my household. So far, our furnance needed repair. We need some major car repairs which we have already estimated to be about $650.00. I had some extra insurance taken out of my check, so I do not have as much money to pay with. I cleaned out my closet, drawers and even my craft area. I dontaed everything(I might be a secret hoarder. I hope not). Despite some of the setbacks, we are still ...
  5. After the Rush

    by , 12-26-2011 at 10:23 PM
    Today, I was able to buy five gift sets of perfume from Hedi Klum and Beyonce for 20.00. Walgreens had a 50% off sale. I brought two sets at 10.00 down from 19.99 and three sets at 7.49 down from 14.99. The origninal price came to 45.00. I had 5, five dollar coupons off for each of the sets. My total was 20.00. I found two more coupons an I plan to go to another Walgreens for other sets. Not bad, not bad at all. I will report back with my other findings. Stay tune.
