Good Saturday morning all,
I am drinking coffee and looking at the wonderful white stuff outside. :)
I thought I would post some "THIS and THAT" photos this morning.
THIS is a cute little doo-dad that I found online. Wouldn't it make a great Valentine's gift?
THAT is a pic of the weather and street conditions in our town on January 28, 2009. Actually this is mild compared to what it ended up looking like. (the courthouse steeple is in the middle of the background)
THIS is one of the items I picked up at the thrift store.
My question is, what can I do with it?
I also picked up 2 yards of an even weave linen for 99 cents and
a 3 piece ivory wool suit for $1.99.
The linen I am going to use for cross stitching on( with the help of a magnifying lamp, lol).
Now, I got to think of some ideas for the wool. :)
THAT is an image from the 1930's.
I hope we are never in dire straits like there was back then.
I look at people shopping at the thrift stores and the cheaper grocery stores in town. There are always nice cars in the lots right beside the older models( like mine). I think people are smartening up and tightening their belts. Thrift store shopping is not a bad thing like some think, nor does it have the stereotyping that it used to have. It doesn't mean you are poor or down & out, it means you are taking control of your money and being a savvy consumer.
I have shopped at thrift stores, yard sales and church sales all my life. I love it!
I love the thrill of finding a good bargain and saving money.
Before I am off to read other blogs, I thought I would post some sites in case anyone needs them or would like to take a "gander". :)
Best deals & freebies everyday

Purina is offering a $4.00 off coupon for cat food and they will donate $1.00 to a local shelter ( according to your zip code). Even if you don't have a cat, why not pick up a bag and DONATE IT to a shelter? It would cost you less than a dollar. Walmart has the food for $4.77 ( 3.5 lb. bag)
with coupon, your cost would be 77 cents!
