I just love finding a good deal! Last week I had to reorganize some kitchen cabinets, and after reviewing my recent purchases I know why. A lot of my good deals lately have been kitchen items.
This decorative tea pot was from a local thrift store for around a dollar. It’s not an antique or anything fancy, but it adds some pretty color to my kitchen counter.
While we’re looking at this area, may I just share my brilliant idea? See the three switches above the teapot?
Because of my mushy somewhat oldish brain, I was always turning on the disposal when I meant to turn on the light. So this is what I did…
I know, lame but it really helps. It’s the simple things…
I love picking up frames super cheap at yard sales. I paid around a dollar for this one which is more than I usually pay, but I liked it.
This vase would be perfect for pens and pencils, but at the moment I’m using it as a decoration on my bedroom shelf. I purchased it at a thrift store for about a dollar also.
Lately I’ve been loving ceramic and glass casserole dishes. These were a couple of dollars at our local Restore. It’s so ridiculous how much they are at department stores.
This truffle dish was 2$ at a local church yard sale. I can’t wait to make something delicious and pretty to put in it!
I don’t remember how much I paid for this gorgeous oven proof stoneware piece, but I’m sure it wasn’t much. It’s divided in the middle which makes it extra functional.
I don’t know about you, but I am using my large skillet all the time! I bought this stainless steel beauty at a yard sale for $4.00. I have seen them at department stores for upwards of $60.00, so I was tickled to find this one in excellent condition.
So those are my recent bargains, and I hope you are having fun finding some good deals of your own!
lOVE the truffle dish! So many ways to use it (other than a yummy dessert of course).
Gotta love a label maker!! 🙂
I love all your finds! And labeling the light switch is a good idea. Enjoy your day!
Great finds, I really need to do more thift shopping.
