RRR! Reuse Recycle Repurpose

I went out thrifting yesterday with my two favorite Thrifters In Crime: my daughter and my cousin! We went to Savers, which I’ve heard so much about. Wasn’t impressed. Will not be returning, either. Their prices were way too high! 😁 So of course, we went to our local fave. And they were having 50% off all furniture!!! The price tag said $29.99, but at 50% off, it was $12.50!! I plan to paint it black. Pottery Barn style. I’ll have an update in a few days!

$15 Thrifty Find

I can’t say it enough: Yes, I do! Here’s my latest treasure find! And the lucky recipient of said treasure find, my 16 month old grandson, Ke’Mari. I think he likes it. Did I tell ya it was only $15?! And that included the new mattress! Believe me, this toddler bed is in excellent condition. Since he loves Mickey, my wheels (and my Pinterest board) is already in motion. I’m gonna go for a Mickey theme. Black, red, yellow. And of course, Mickey art on the headboard.

PS don’t worry, the hubby has already removed it from the living room, lol

I have sooo many projects patiently waiting in my garage. Waiting to be sanded, primed, painted, glued, sewed, sawed, etc. ☺

Frugal Find Friday!

Look what I found at my local Dollar Tree (Bay Area, California)!!! Solar Table Lamps!!! the best part is the on/off switch! This is waaaay cheaper if I tried to DIY them! Sometimes it’s cheaper to buy than DIY.

I ❤ the Dollar Tree! What have you found lately at your local Dollar Tree?
