*Check out my older post of my redone dump chair
Everything was 50% off what a great deal!
A close up of the santa cake stand I think he is soo cute, I had my eye on him before the holidays and was so glad he went on sale.
I think I convinced hubby that next year we should exchange our gifts after the holidays.
I've been thinking a lot about these conversations this weekend, but I would like to know what do you think?
Side Note: Hubby and I are extremely lucky to have such wonderful friends who are able to discuss diverse points of view on so many topics.
In my mail I found these free items:
*Many of these deals were found on Frugal Focus.com
WELL... not only did they take it back they gave me $4.00 in cash for it.
So I explained to hubby I got paid $4.00 to shop at the dump today!
Glass Pumpkin $1.00

Glass Cake Dome $.50
My Favorite Part: IT WAS ALL FREE

I found the wrapping paper in Walgreens on clearance for 1.00. I loved the print so much Im going to paint some frames (I found at the dump) white and and frame pieces of it for cheap artwork.

Reason # 2
Found these at the dump store a week later
Yep that's right, glasses that had never been used with Tiffany & Co. stickers on each of them. Im not sure if they're really Tiffany & Co. But the stickers looked authentic and they were super cute glasses. I sold them on ebay for $35.00
Reason # 3
If you aren't convinced by now the dump is a wonderful place to go. Here is the third one. I found this bamboo chair in wonderful condition. (Yes I did climb half way up the wood pile to retrieve it but it was in great condition.) If I had had a truck I would have taken the beautiful vanity I found too but it wouldn't fit in my car. I spray painted the chair and found these cushions at a thrift store. Total price for chair $8.00. It looks so great in my spare bedroom
So are you convienced that the dump is really not that bad of a place??
