Ron and I went thrifting this morning after dropping Freedom off at the groomers. We knew of one yard sale but when we got there didn’t find a thing. So after having breakfast at McDonald’s ( I love their pancakes!) we drove to our Goodwill As Is Store. That’s the store I told you sells everything by the pound. I found a few things there this morning.
I buy any big jars I can find for storing food. Last week I bought a fifteen pound bag of Basmati Rice and most of it will fit in this jar. I’m convinced we’re going to have hyper-inflation. I’ve already seen prices going up. Lately I’ve been trying to stockpile canned and dry foods in preparation. If gas prices rise to $5 a gallon as I’ve read, it will help to not have to buy as many groceries. I’ve already seen some of the grocery stores raising prices. I remember the old Boy Scout motto, be prepared. It won’t hurt.
I love this jar.
I found one of these Nativities last year. My daughter fell in love with it so I gave it to her. It looked so pretty on her hearth this year. I can’t believe I found another today and complete
with all the pieces. This one is mine.
Look at their little faces. Aren’t they sweet?
I also found a box of these tiles. I’m not sure what we’ll do with them, but know a project will come up and we’ll be glad we have them. I normally wouldn’t purchase something so heavy at the As Is store, but once you have fifty pounds, you get a great cut in the cost per pound. I think we only paid 59 cents per pound instead of $1.29. It pays to buy in bulk there.
I didn’t find the next at the store today. It was given to my by a friend of mine. I wanted to show you because it’s cute.
She was made to cover a toaster. I love the dress material. Isn’t she precious? We’re going to another yard sale tomorrow. Maybe I’ll have something else to show you. See you then.
