Thrifting Finds #9!

Two dollars.

That is the sum total of money hubs and I spent in the thrifts this weekend.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we were unable to do our normal Sunday rounds; we only went to one Goodwill, and that's the one where we hardly ever get anything.  We did our usual two GWs and the Rescue Mission thrift on Saturday, and it was at one of those GWs that I found my one purchase.

So what'd I get?

1.  Tupperware!  This canister is enormous.  I wanted a piece of Tupperware to keep my flour in the freezer, but this sucker won't fit on the shelf!  I suppose I could put it in the bin down below, but it might take up more real estate than it's worth.  I could probably fit about 10 pounds of flour in this and there's no way I'll ever buy that much.  It'd be great for keeping powder detergent, but we usually buy liquid.  So now I have to come up with a good use for this, because there's no way I'm getting rid of it. $2.00

And that was the only thing I bought.  Even hubs didn't get anything.

While we were out, I did take a couple of pictures of things I didn't buy.

1.  Amish man!  Amish man disapproves of your shenanigans.  Also, is that a cold sore?

2.  Nun!  I totally cracked up when I saw this.  The expression on her face is priceless.  I call her Sister Agnes Meh.

That's all, I'm afraid.  Hopefully next week will be full of Pyrex and Tupperware and all sorts of cool stuff!

Linking up (rather ashamedly) with Sir Thrift A LotThe Nifty Thrifty, and The Remnant


  1. I think the Amish Man isn't impressed with the barn building skills of today's youth. What about oats for your canister?

    1. Clearly, today's youth knows nothing about plumb and level!
      I hardly ever have oats in the house (which is why I don't usually put them in my meatloaf), and this canister would hold a lifetime supply. If Honey still ate dry food, this would be perfect for keeping it.
      Keep the ideas coming!

  2. I am scared by both the Amish and nuns.
    Worst. Decor. Ever.

    1. Don't be scared--they're just like you and me. Only completely different.
      So am I right? Cold sore?

  3. There are so many things you could do with that amazing giant piece of Tupperware! I would use it as a cookie jar!


    1. I'd do that if I didn't already have a way cool Pixieware cookie jar that I love.
      I might end up using the Tupperware as a footstool!
