My Thrifted Winter Gear Came in Handy on this Outing!

Sunday, May 29, 2016

There are those times when you need to get away from it all. I love the idea of having a state park nearby , it is a thrifty way to go enjoy nature and leave the television and other electronic gadgets behind for a few hours. I am speaking of High Falls State Park.The entrance fee is a mere $5.00 and gives visitors access to the park grounds which are outfitted with picnic areas. Must I mention that the park has some great walking and hiking trails with an amazing view of the falls. I pulled out my jeans, boots and jacket ( all thrifted from Salvation Army of Central Georgia  )for my  trip a day trip to the falls in January. 

Oh My! Dollar Tree Has Relaxer Kits!

Thursday, May 26, 2016

To my surprise, today I spotted relaxer kits in Dollar Tree as I perused the haircare section. I saw relaxer kits and other haircare items that are sold at Chain stores for higher prices. The availability of these products offer a thrifty option for ladies who are low on funds and need to have a touch up or quick hair conditioning. Dollar Tree actually carries lots of  brand name items in each area of their stores.  Do you shop at Dollar Tree or other similar stores?

Thrifter Vikki Kirkling Burns Keeps Her Thrift Life Organized

Sunday, May 15, 2016

Anyone who is an avid thrifter knows there is a fine line between excess thrift finds and hoarding.
Our Thrift sister Vikki Burns’s philosophy is “great organization is a must in a thrifter’s life”. We purchase so much till it tends to take over every available space we have. Vikki purges and reorganizes her thrift finds often, she says she needs to see what all she has in order to fully appreciate it.
From the look of it(  see pics )  Vikki has a great system that keeps her thrift  inventory in check. This system can work well for non-thrifters as well.
 Check out other great tips and inspirational posts from Vikki who calls herself Ms. Southern Thrifter

I sported two great bags and great gifted accessories all in one day

Friday, May 13, 2016

I tried some new colors back in the the fall. I put my thrifted Dana Buchman blouse I scored from the Christian Women's ( Thrifty by Design Thrift Boutique ) in Griffin with  a thrifted Cha'os brand leather cross body from The Salvation Army Thrift store Broadway. Of course I had to complete the outfit with some great accessories. Look  in the second photo is a necklace that I made with a cute lil shoe and a kit from Hobby Lobby. My ring was also part of the same thrift score from the Thrifty By Design Boutique. I finalized it all with a gold toned bracelet gifted to me from my Uncle Matthew Davis. Uncle Matt as he is affectionately known, is always finding me some great jewelry. I had an event later in that day, so I switched up purses and pulled out my Brahmin bag I that scored from a private seller online.
What about you do you have a friend or family member who gifts you great stuff? 

My Donation to Jr. League- Helped Them Help Women

Donating to and supporting  good causes is my passion. Last fall my junior league asked us members to donate gently used items that women could use to update or increase their wardrobe. The items needed were clothing items that women could wear to job interviews. I am always needing to make space in my closet,so I looked though my closet and found some items to donate . The league donations went to help women who are finishing up training programs and need a great interview outfit. 
What about you ? Are you seeking ways to help others?

Enjoying the benefits of YETI at less than half the price!

Saturday, May 7, 2016

I was recently about to take the plunge and get myself one of the ever popular Yeti tumblers, when a coworker told me he knew of a cheaper alternative that offered the same benefits. It was then I was introduced to Rtic , well I decided it was worth taking a look at , heck even with taking a chance and purchasing one. I'm glad I decided to try Rtic . I love my 30 oz.  stainless steel tumbler. I have filled it full of ice  went out about my day, let it sit in my vehicle  in direct sunlight and yes the ice stayed intact! My next test was it to see how many hours it would hold ice, let me tell you after 2 days and a half my tumbler still had ice in it. I have convinced friends to try Rtic and they all love it and love the idea of getting two of them for the cost of a Yeti. I don't leave home for errands without mine. Best product referral I have gotten in a long time!

I Scored at a Recent Semi Annual Women's Consignment Sale

Monday, May 2, 2016

I am always excited to get the colorful postcard in the mail  announcing the She's Got the Look "Spring and Fall Women's Clothing Consignment Sale. Over the years I have scored some amazing clothing, jewelry etc.. at the sale. The organizers ( Dawn Burkhalter  & Julie Canady do such a good job setting up the selling space to give shoppers a good experience. All items are clearly tagged , neatly organized and best of all they are separated by size! They bring us a Spring & Fall Women's Clothing Sale. They recently added an additional  Fall housewares and decor sales event. I shopped last fall for some new Christmas decor.

One of  the the best things about the sale is there are big signs in addition to size markers on the racks. This type of organization makes consignment shopping favorable. An extra special added bonus is that dawn and Julie give Thrifting Central Ga. "Official tote bag holding members" access to the sale ) on the Preview  Night ,so we get to shop before the sale opens the general public. Our Face Book page hss details on where & how to get a tote bag .
Visit the She's Got the Look Face Book page  and sign up for upcoming sales. They are always looking for new consignors as well.
