I try to visit our Habitat ReStore every few months (wish I went more frequently actually) just to see what they have in the way of furniture, etc. and I always look at the books because our store has a great selection of books. The last time I was in there I saw this cookbook which I had on my wish list for awhile after seeing Pioneer Woman praise it. I was honestly surprised to see it in the ReStore and snatched it up in a hurry for less than $5. And not I cannot wait to have friends over for dinner and make something from this book.
During waaaay after Christmas shopping, like basically New Year's shopping with my mom I found this snowflake burlap table runner in HomeGoods on clearance that would be great for Christmas and/or the winter season. I could make something like this fairly easily but not for $4.
I have been wanting a polka dot sweater and I happened upon one on a recent trip to the outlet mall at Banana Republic Outlet. It was marked down to $55 but the whole store was 50% off, score!
I also found an orange long-sleeved top... my current one was starting to look sort of worn out. This isn't as Clemson orange as the photo/computer makes it look but it will work, especially for $12 and then 50% off.. yes that's right a $6 shirt!
I've been painting my nails more frequently now that I figured out how to make them last at least a week without chipping (I'll post about that at some point). I bought some nail polish recently at Marshall's and TJMaxx to expand my collection because they sell OPI and Essie and Sephora brands for $2.99-$4.99 instead of the $8-$9 (but selection is limited so I just make a habit of looking whenever I am there) these are in stores so you can get a nicer quality nail polish for the same cost of a cheaper brand.
Have any of you savvy shoppers found anything super thrifty lately?
