These plates are for my son. He loves them! they're nice snack sized plates, which I needed a couple more of, and the fact that they are a lion and a truck? Yeah, pretty much perfect for my little man. And the best part? They were 50¢ each!
This adorable purse was just $1!!! I've been looking for a purse something like this. Most of the time I leave the house I need a diaper bag or a tote, but every now and then I'd like something smaller. Since I lost my absolutely amazing little purse back in Dec, I've been on the look out for one. I want something big enough for my wallet, cell phone, keys, lip chap, and perhaps a couple other small things, but still small, with a strap big enough to go on and off my shoulder easily. This meets all those requirements! I don't know if this one will meet the standard of my "go-to" little purse like my other one did, but for a whole dollar, I figured I really couldn't loose.
I love these straps!
Those were all from the best place in the universe, hence the crazy awesome prices!
This pillow I found at the Salvation Army. It was $4. And I love it! I'm pretty sure that we're going to be buying a cheap-y futon in the next little bit, and I want to put this pillow on it! When I found it in a big bin of pillows I almost let it go, because in a couple weeks the store is going to have a 50% off sale, but I decided that I loved it so much I was willing to pony up the $4. The only thing was that it seemed a tad... understuffed. No problem! There's a zipper! I can open it up and add more stuffing (which I knew I had a bag of at home)!
Small problem there too, the zipper only opened this far. Once again I contemplated leaving it there in the bin and hoping it would still be there come sale time. But I know a few tricks when it comes to sticky zippers, and changed my mind back again, and scooped it up. Once I got home I realized that it was actually bits of the stuffing caught in the zipper that was making it stuck. So I pulled them out and it opened up beautifully. I'm going to wash the case (by hand, there's no tag with wash instructions, and I don't want to ruin my new pillow!), then put the stuffing back in, and add some more! I can't wait!
So there you have it folks, about half of the awesome stuff I got today! With any luck ll have a few spare minutes soon to show you the rest!
