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...
This actually my post from my blog.
Since I have started back to school, I have decided to update my wardrobe. I stopped by a local church and they were having a clothes give-away. I cleaned up(I also donate back to this church and several organization with the clothes, purse, shoes, that I do...
I did great! Found some things I was looking for and some I didn't know I was looking for. :P
I got a two-gallon jar I've wanted for $2. I have two already, one for AP flour and one for bread flour. Now I finally have one for wheat flour. All three are different, which I like, so I'll know...
How is it I can continue to have one of these every darn year when I don't buy anything anymore ~ UGH!
Oh well, nonetheless - it's time. Winter is flying by quickly and before we know it we will see springtime peeking her beautiful head out from behind the bushes in the backyard.
Chocolate (Christmas clearance)
Frozen finger foods
Carpeting and flooring
Toys (on clearance after the holidays)
I went To Wal-mart this AM for some groceries and toilet paper.
There were still so many black Friday deals to be had. The store was so full of stuff.
The middle aisle where still stocked up high. Special deal t shirts and pj's, kitchen appliances, DVD, and blue rays.
I even saw one couple...

Be sure and check your fliers!!!
Best local prices:

I took an afghan that I had crocheted to work to show to someone.
Another lady saw it and said "Those colors would look great in my house. Do you ever make and sell them?"
To be perfectly honest, I don't really need the one I made. (I only made it so I wouldn't feel so useless and guilty while...
Has anyone done these? What's involved? How can you tell what to sell and at what price? Any ideas for having a successful sale?
A friend and I are thinking about doing a craft sale this November. We're wondering what to expect. A 6' table costs $50 for this sale. We're splitting the cost...
Money saving mom blogged about the 50 cents Staples deals
Staples: Back-To-School Deals for the week of July 3-9, 2011 :: Money Saving Mom®

Maybe its just where I am at...but I have noticed over the last few weeks that our CVS stores have changed the days that they have their weekly sales. It used to be that the sales would run starting on Sunday and end on the following Saturday....now they are running Sunday - Friday....that is...

I checked the fliers so that I could do groceries this weekend and there was not one single item that was a good enough sale that it could tempt me to go shopping.
Looks like this week will be one for using the stockpile instead of adding to it!
Are there any here who shop in 2 different states/counties etc where the sales tax differs? I live right on the state line of LA and MS.
In Louisiana where I live, the sales tax on food is 4.75%, but on non food items, it's 8.75%.
In Mississippi (where I work - 3 miles from home) the sales...
