Thrifty Finds

Today, Jeff and I went to a marriage enrichment event at a local church. The guest speaker was Christian music artist, Clay Crosse and his wife Renee. They have been putting on these events across the country and I very much enjoyed it.

Afterward, we went to Savers. I have to admit... the first time I ever went to Savers it was to look at some furniture. A friend at work had told me about these amazing deals she saw there the week before. I had no idea that it was a second hand store... until I got there. The furniture wasn't attractive in anyway and some of it was in very poor condition. I was put off and planned to never enter that place again...

And then I learned about the great deals you can find at thrift stores on yarn and craft stuff. So I asked Jeff if we could stop by. I think I scored big time with 3 skiens of Red Heart Baby yarn and three skeins of some random worsted weight acrylic... my favorite purchase was my head! I saw it and told Jeff to grab it... I can use it to photograph my hats (way better looking than me!). I got all this for $11.00!!
