I was challenged by Savers to spend $50 and see how much I could get…
I think I did pretty well, I roughly watched as I shopped and my grand total was = $51.84!
I actually ended up with over 35 items! Okay so technically 11, but the 24 mason jars have to count for something and who knows how many cards are in the postcard set (at least 30?). My mom and my aunt went with me and we set out to divide and conquer. We all came coming back to the basket with something else we wanted and literally had to fight the crowds, at the store opening.
- Two mini crockpots (that really work and will be great for fondue)
- A magazine rack (refinishing and DIY post coming soon…)
- My favorite… the Polka Dot Chicken Teapot (Because, why not?!)
- Music Stand (refinishing and DIY post coming soon…)
- DIY Color Postcards (donation to mom’s classroom)
- Tennis Balls, Football, Basketball (donation to mom’s classroom)
- 24 Mini Mason Jars (donation to mom’s classroom)
- Mouse Door Holder (he’s the cutest darn thing!)
Overall, I got so excited inside of Savers, because it was like a treasure hunt. There was a mixture of new, vintage and gently loved items that needed a home. They had furniture, electronics, housewares, knick knacks, art, sports equipment, shoes, clothing, and accessories. It was fun to get to sort through things, at such adorable prices. The DIY options were endless and I will definitely find myself going there, the next time I am in need of a project.
Have you been to your local Savers or thrift shop lately? It’s totally worth a second look!
