This week it was yet another town wide rummage.
My most amazing find of the day were these two crotchet blankets that are single bed size and just .50 cents each. The one above is in absolute pristine condition. I am going to give it a wash and then use it in my daughters room.
The green and tan blanket is in good shape, no holes or snags but it does have a large amount of dog hair on it. I am going to roll the whole thing down with my lint roller, then wash and dry and then roll the lint brush over it again. Hopefully that removes the dog hair. If not then it might become our dogs blanket (which would be a shame because its beautiful!)
The shorts are for my husband. The jacket is like new, and by Columbia, I don’t look all that great in the color yellow but I bought it strictly with winter running in mind. Yellow should make me seen by drivers.
My husband and I currently fight over the one glass pitcher we own. I want to make herbal tea, he wants to make his powdered sweet tea. Now we no longer have to fight.
My daughter is trying to make herself a fort entirely out of yard sale Duplo. I always wanted to do this as a child too, so I am vicariously living through her by being her supplier.
The Vera Bradley coin purse is new. I love these coin purses, I have a similar one holding all my store cards, and another that comes on bike rides with me. I put this one to work right away holding my camera.
My most expensive find of the day was this computer desk. I have had desks on my list this season. I want two one for the study room, and one for the boys room. This one is perfect for the study room.
Of course when you give a mom a desk, she has to……..
put move the old table that was being used as a desk out of the way. Which leads to decluttering….which leads to cleaning the floor….which leads to dusting…which then leads to reorganizing the whole room! (anyone else out there guilty of this)
Now my eldest has all his books within arms reach from his desk. The book shelf still needs to be organized for the up coming school year but I had to call it quits so as to get a few other more pressing priorities done yesterday.
Total spent this week: $32
Do you end up reorganizing the entire room when you get a new piece of furniture?
