I am addicted to DI (the local thrift store). But I'm pretty sure that you already knew that. This is a huge one for us. I have been able to do so many things because I checked there before going to buy something full price.
I think those were $0.50 a each. And my girls were THRILLED to have them. It was like Christmas for no reason.
Remember this? See that adorable white shelf? It is exactly what I pictured right there. I went to Target first, because this time, I knew what I wanted. Target did not have what I wanted. I would have had to settle for the price of $40. I don't think so.
So, I headed over to DI. And there it was: the perfect shelf. It had been decorated, by what looked to be a two year old with a pen, but I just pulled out the handy magic eraser and voile! Perfect little shelf for my perfect little bathroom. Did I mention it cost $2?
this, yes? This would not have been possible without the DI.
the mirror that still doesn't have a home. $10. And can you see that little oval mirror at the bottom? Also DI. $0.75. I love them both. I will let you know when I finally decide where to put them.
And this isn't to mention the HUNDREDS of books that we have purchased from DI over the years. Yes, the library is cheaper, but I have this weird thing for owning my books. And when they are $0.75 each, well, I just can't help myself. (That's not to mention the fact that I am physically incapable of returning books on time and I am sure will soon be expelled from the Salt Lake County library system for the ridiculous amount of fines that have been sitting in my account for years now. Another reason not to go to the library. . .)
So, are you convinced? Next time you get a chance, swing by. You might be surprised what you can find.
