I haven't written lately about the fun things I bought at my last visit to Goodwill. I stopped by there some time before going to California for my nieces wedding. I did take pictures right away so that I wouldn't forget share what I found.
Here it is all together
8 plates to add to the dishes I bought a Goodwill a couple of months ago, pictured here.
They cost $4.99
The remaining items had pink tags so all were half off,
Tablecloth, long oval, perfect for my table was $3.50 and napkins $1.50
Two fall colored place mats $1.00
Total cost for all the fun things I found, about $12.00
I just noticed that my new refrigerator is in this picture, I just love it!
Now I want to show you what my husband found on Craigslist. We had been looking for an island for our kitchen, something with more workspace and storage space than the tiny one we had. My husband found this perfect island after persistently searching Craigslist for less than 1/3rd of the cost of many we had been thinking about. We are very happy with it.
We will be doing some thinking about how we will transform it to match the rest of our kitchen but in the mean time we are making good use of it. I think we might wrap it in bead board and paint it.
Our cabinets are in need of paint also so we will have to do some planning. We have also talked about needing a new sink and faucet. It could go on and on.
I do want to let you know that we are very content with our kitchen as it is so we won't be rushing out to spend lots of money, actually we don't have lots of money so that won't be happening. It will be fun to keep plugging away and fix things up as we can. I am glad that my husband likes searching Craigslist, I will stick with Goodwill, and we'll work together to make our home special with thrifty finds.
