I have been desiring to go "Thrifting" for quite some time now. Don currently has Friday's off and when I got home last Friday he gave me the options of some things to do that night for our "date night". One of the options was to go to a few of the local Goodwills or Salvation Army stores and to see if we could find any treasure! I gladly accepted this offer and away we went. We only had time to visit two stores in the area before our bellies were calling for dinner, but it was so much fun rummaging through a few stores and got a few steals.
Don picked up a FM tuner for his IPOD for $5 and a cable to connect our laptop to the printer for $3. I found a cute book for $.75 that Don decided he would read to me when we got home (much funnier with his expressions). I also found a cute purse for $3. We are going to be having a Golf/Walk - A - Thon as a fundraiser for school this year and one of the things we're doing to get the kids excited is having a door decorating contest. We are currently still in the "planning" stage and I picked up an old golf club for $.90 (yeah, tax deductable!!) for a little more inspiration.
I love my husband and I am so thankful for a guy who is willing to put aside his desires so that I could have a little bit of fun. Although, he would admit that he had good time as well (especially getting an extra-long cheesy coney at Sonic afterwards!!). Thanks Sweetie! Your the Best!
P.S. Sarah - Not as great of deals as those super-cool chairs, but our Thrifting days aren't over yet!!
