Sometimes the "new" stores have thrifty prices too...

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Besides going to a thrift store I would say my second favorite place to shop is Target! Today I went to target on my lunch break, and found some great deals! The things I found were about the same prices I would find at a thrift store. I had a great time!

I have had my eye on this binder for awhile, but it was originally priced at $7.69. That was to much for me, but when I saw it today in the clearance rack for $1.92 I had to have it!

The matching paper was a steal too at $1.21 originally priced $4.84

Target had a great line of black and white folders with splashes of color. I bought the other folders at different targets for $0.98/each. This was the last one that I needed, and I only paid a mere $0.24! Score!!! I love this folder. Its so cute! and fun, and weird! and me!

Colorful journel for $0.98 

A wonderfully cheerful yellow mug for $0.48

And Finally my favorite find...

Sparkly silver shoes!! I just fell in love with these flats. Plus they were in my size.

Oh the price you ask...

YEP $3.26!!! Happy dance! 

And if you need reminding all of these items were found at Target NOT at a thrift store.

And now some GREEN treasures around my house to wish you a Happy St Patty's day!

My super cute green dresser 

My favorite green lamp (I bought two of these lamps for $5.00 at a swap meet)

My lovely green and blue bedding

The green and white Pyrex dish I used to put the veggies in for tonights dinner. ( I suppose my green vase in the background counts too)

And finally these great green wooden ..... things.... not sure what to call them. But they were thrifted at  Goodwill for $2.99/each. They hang in my bathroom, and I just love them!

Enjoy your day thrifters! The weekend is almost here where hopefully some more treasures will be found!
