Thrifting

So, I went to the grocery store today, and right next to the store is Good Will - and it's 50% off day. Lately I have been totally addicted to thrifting. I can hardly drive past a thrift store without pulling in "just for a minute" turns into a half hour, usually. Anyway, so I went in and here is my prize find: I've been wanting a jewelry box for a while. My stuff is piling up on my dresser and it's sloppy. Usually the ones I find are either too expensive (my standards of "expensive" are pretty frugal - anything over $5, no thanks). BUT, you can imagine anything UNDER $5 is usually pretty junky. Anyway, I found THIS - notice the price sticker in the corner? $5! And it was 50% off day!Go Me! It's weird, I feel like I've beaten "the Man" when I get a deal like this. Like "HA HA, you can't make me." Anyway, just wanted to show off.


And showing off again, Alyssa did Sage's hair so cute today, so I made her pose for a picture. She looks like a mini pre-teen.
