Thought I’d start a regular feature about the great things I find at thrift stores – starting with today’s treasures.
For $17.09, I got the following items at Goodwill:
1) Two, brand new-in-the-original-package round silver towel bars (to replace the old-fashioned square-ish ones on my bathroom wall) — $3.93 each ($3.93 x 2 = $7.86). I’m guessing the original price would be about $15 each ($30).
2) A new-in-the-original-package set of pink, 440 thread count king-sized pillowcases from Bed, Bath and Beyond (the original price was $16.99) — $5.95
3) One small basket (to stash all the printed info I collect about blogging!) — $1.99
4) One hardback book — “I’d Rather Be Writing” by Marcia Golub (to generate blog post ideas). The sale price tag from Barnes and Noble on it says $3.98 — $1.29
By my conservative calculations, the retail price for these items would’ve been about $59, resulting in a savings of approximately $42. Pretty good for a stop on the way home from work. 🙂
If you locate some thrift store bargains this week, share the joy! Write and let us know.
