Not Much This Week...

Well I was all excited to go out this weekend because of some Craigslist ads that had been hyping their sale ALL week. Oh my goodness is all I have to say! Yuck, nada, nilch, nothin' worth anything to me. I was so bummed! I mean really if you're going to advertise please be honest! Enough of my soap box! Ahem. Ok. Now back to business!

I did find a couple of unadvertised sales and they turned up a couple of little things I had been looking for on my list. The first real sale was a fundraiser for a missionary group in Africa. A bunch of older ladies were running it and boy were they EXCITED! They were so cute and just having a ball trying to sort out all of the stuff they had gathered for the sale. I found 2 shirts and 2 boxes of the Dryel laundry products for $5. If you use the Dryel stuff you know one box is about $10, so I snatched them up when I saw them for 2 bucks each. Not exciting, but definitely a savings for me. I had been putting off buying any, so my procrastination turned out to be for the best! The first shirt I found was a little sleeveless tunic, so cute! The second was a darling white t-shirt with a little cut-out button hole at the neckline. I had made a mental note to find a couple of white shirts to go with my skirts from last week. Check, mission accomplished!
I also found more Legos. The lady at that sale actually went and found more for me when she saw what I had picked up! Too funny!

The next sale I found was close to my house so I stopped by to have a look. I am glad I did! I found a cute, cute skirt and a second white button-up shirt for $1 each. The best find was a pair of black knee-high leather boots for $2. I had just been pricing some out for the fall and at $80 I decided to wait, I am so glad I did!

It wasn't a great week, but I still had fun! Now you can head over to Rhoda's at Southern Hospitality to see what everyone else scored this weekend!

Until next time,


  1. Well, you might not have seen anything that you thought was exciting, but at least you found some things that you could use! Great deal on the Dryel!

  6. Hi! Glad you found some stuff you could use. Those boots are a great find! I know what you mean - last year I was scouring eBay all the time for black boots. Everyone was wanting them, and the prices were too high for me.
