Another Reason Why I love The Dump

(photo courtesy of google images)

Soo... I went to the dump with hubby today (he doesn't understand my obsession with the dump store).

I ran into the dump store and found a couple of good scores: (pictures to come later)

  • Black metal multi candle center piece

  • 2 books: How to survive after college without your parents money, and how to create and contract your own log cabin (looks brand new)

  • 4 packages of brand new stainless steal silverware still in the packaging from walmart
    I didn't love the silverware so i figured what the heck maybe Walmart will take it back...

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!

Coupon Clipper

So I am addicted to cutting coupons. I get a huge rise out of saving money on my food bill. I would love to have one of those days where I get $100.00 worth of groceries for $10.00. This woman is my new idol!

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while, i've been extremely sick!! There is this alwful cold going around at school and everyone has been on the down and out. Its one of those colds where it wont go away and it hits you hard.

Soo.. after a second trip to the doctors office and some antibotics Im starting to feel better.

I decided to rearrange my bookcase.

I think one of the reasons I love our house is for the built in bookcase in the living room. I've been reading alot of decorating magazines and they keep talking about redecorating bookcases.

Sorry I have no before to show you... but here is the after!

Some of the knick knacks are hard to see but the green fish was a yard sale find and I just fell in love with him. The cheese dome was a dump find. The dancing wooden people are from our honeymoon. I love that the bookshelf is made up of such trinkety things.

Freebies at Rite Aid

I got all of this stuff for FREE at Rite Aid
All I had to do was sign up for the single check rebates and Rite Aid is cutting me a check for $52.69
Considering I only paid 47.69 ( I used the $5 off $25.00 or more coupon) They are paying ME $5.00 for all of this stuff!! Yes folks this is bargain shopping at its finest. I will be set for any cold I may get this year. So keep an eye out for Rite Aid weekly flyers (you need to get their early in the week because I know these products run out!)

Neighborhood Wide Yard Sales Are Not Always What They Seem!

So on Saturday I dragged my behind out of bed very early with hubby for probably our last yard sales of the year.

I was soo excited a really nice section of our town was having a neighborhood wide yardsale.

Well needless to say I didn't find much there at all! A little dissapointed. But here are the few things I did manage to score:

Glass Pumpkin $1.00

Brand New Scrabble Game Still In Shrink Wrap $2.00

Glass Cake Dome $.50

Total: $3.50
