Thrifty Thursday: Never underestimate the power of a woman


You know what I love about thrift stores? Well, a lot of things but for one, I can find slightly odd, rare gems like this t-shirt….

If you’re old like me, you recognize the iron on lettering from the 70s. Man, I loved those things. Someone else did,too. They liked them so much they added THSI on the back:

So, basically….the person who owned this was the ultimate geek girl, 70’s style. I love when I buy the past items of a long lost soul sister.

Related sidenote: The theme from Close Encounters is the only thing I can play on the piano.

Also last week, I scored these :

I’m stashing the top two away for my little guy’s birthday in May. The Eric Carle game is still sealed. They were 50Β’ each! Major score.

The full version of Labyrinth is one of our favorite family games but my 7 year old isn’t quite old enough yet ,so I thought we would try this one.

  1. I scored a TON of books at the thrift store a week or so before xmas. They sell them 5 for $.99, and they had just filled a HUGE bin with a TON of kids books. I spent who knows how long digging through that bin, and when all was said and done, I had bought 55 books. All for the low, LOW price of only $11. Some of them I gave as holiday gifts, and the rest are just going to be added to the boys’ collection. πŸ™‚
    That Eric Carle game is indeed a serious score. Nice one.
