Thrift Tripping in Phoenix

Saturday, June 30, 2018

Back in May I had trip to Phoenix Arizona. Before you ask ! Yes  after class one evening I took UBER to the local Salvation Army Thrift store.
It reminded me of my hometown store, filled with lots of great furniture pieces  etc.
I scored a cute pair of shoes for $3.75 (the whole store was half off  that day  ).

I enjoy THRIFT- TRIPPIN when I am traveling.

How about you . Do you seek out thrift stores when you travel for work and play ?

Thrifty Living Tip **Grow Your Own Veggies

Friday, June 22, 2018

The savviest and safest way to enjoy good veggies is to GROWN YOUR OWN!!
This year I decided to do just that, I started with a few starter plants and some seeds.
A friend built me a raised bed and used existing planters to house some of the plants.
Now, I have tomatoes, kale, collards, banana peppers and jalapeno peppers thriving in my back yard.

I also tried my hand at growing my own herbs, I have mint, lavender on my back porch in cute planters I got from the dollar tree.

I scored $69.00 vionics for $4.00

Monday, June 18, 2018

I  scored these VIONIC sandals last Fall. They retail for $69.99 .my thrift prices was $4.00
I am a shoe lover ,so I go straight to the shoe section of the thrift store. I am rarely disappointed. I find and purchase a nice pair of shoes.
As soon as I get home I clean them with Lysol concentrate and awesome.
Go ahead  check out the shoe section on your next thrift outing. Your next pair of designer shoes may be there waiting on ya !!

I scored Tory Burch , Lilly Pulitzer and Kate Spade ALL In One Week.

OMG, I decided to hit thrift stores on my way home one Thursday evening.
Would you believe on my first stop I spotted a nice blue TORY BURCH purse which retails for around $180.00 mine was $5.99.

Next stop I was browsing through the basket of wallets and makeup bags stumbled right up on a LILLY PULITZER.
Since I had such a good thrift haul I  decided to do a quick run on Saturday morning , walked in a local; shop and immediately spotted a KATE SPADE little clutch bag which I also purchased.
A real thrifter knows thrifting is hit or miss, so this not a typical thrift outcome.

Need a home decor update?
Don't run out and purchase all new furniture? Repurpose your own , Yep just paint it. 
Drawn inspiration from the set ups you see in the big box furniture stores .

Bid Household Moisture Good Riddance for $1.00

I finally found a thrifty way to rid my closet of moisture.and it only cost me a $1.00.
I buy The Moisture Eliminator at Dollar Tree. It works very well  at trapping excess moisture and eliminating that old stale smell that can develop in closets over time.
 It absorbs twice its weight in water.
It works well in closets, basements bath and laundry rooms too.
A  similar product sells for up to $10.00 in other stores.
