Wallet Friendly Wednesday Stop At A Thrift Store

Wallet Friendly Wednesday idea for the week is Stop At A Thrift Store.

Are you a thrift store shopper? Whether shopping for pretty glass ware, books or even gently used clothing.. it can be found there.
We pop in the thrift store every week to see what is there to buy and sell on the Internet.
We have lived in California and there are lots of wonderful thrift stores, Texas has a fair number some better than others and here in Minnesota there are good ones and so that are not so good.

We stopped at the Goodwill yesterday to see if there were any good books. None to be found but walking in hubby spotted a shopping basket with spiral notebooks. 5 for $1.00. Great price so I picked up 5 of them.
1. Will use for my grocery price book.. will be sharing my ideas on the price book soon.
2. Will be used in the car as a mileage book for our Internet business. Will have starting mileage for the year. Then every time we go out for business will have date, mileage start, mileage end, how many miles we went and finally what did we buy and how much we paid. Of course we have our receipt to go along with this.
3. Rest will be used in my traveling genealogy notebook binder. These note books I found at the thrift store had tear out pages so just perfect to add to my binder.

These were a great buy for me and would be a great buy for the family with children and their school work.

There are great deals all around us .. we just need to look.
I am posting this at Wallet Friendly Wednesday

Thanks for stopping by.. hope that you stop back soon and please remember...

Never under estimate the value of a small amount of money... Grace
