Twice Owned Tuesday

It's no secret that I love 'twice owned' stuff, and resist paying retail when possible. When I saw House of Grace hosting a Twice Owned Tuesday Party, I thought 'YES! I do that all the time!! Yay!!' So, I'll include my finds as a 'Twice Owned Tuesday' post.  (note - if you really want to get jealous, check out the finds Bonnie made at House of Grace!)

Here are some recent finds:

Thrift Store Finds:

Like-new shoes $2 each (I'm usually picky about shoes and pay $80-$100 for decent shoes, but ... they fit, they look nice, they're comfortable. What else matters?)  ... plus it saved me $78 - $98 which makes me happy!

Camping Dishes $13 cups, bowls, pot, quilt, kitchen utensils, sieve, potholders, oven mitts, 2 bath towels, 2 hand towels and 2 face cloths. Sweet! 

Bag of Clothes $7 jeans, 2 pair dress pants, 3 tank tops, 1 summer hoody Hooray! Summer clothes!

Garage Sale Finds:

18 Snowman Candy Tree Ornaments - brand new, hand-crafted. Cute & unique. 
A great find for $0.25 each! I intended to give home-made gifts this Christmas.  (... well SOMEBODY made it!)

Stocking Stuffer Neon Pens $0.25 each (oops! Shhh! Don't tell anyone I played with them ...)

Car Booster Seat (with cup holder) $10  (Would be $40+retail. Nice.)

Bicycle Helmet $4 and $3 - one came with elbow and knee pads. The kids wore them all day. At lunch, supper, walking around in the house... they really like their new helmets. My daughter wanted to nap with it. Cute, but no.

I was quite pleased with the haul. So you know, these deals were found on 3 different trips. I would excessively employ exclamation marks and CAPS if I'd found them all in one day!!!!!!!

What were some of your finds? I'd love to hear about it. I might be slightly jealous, but would mostly love to hear about it ;)

  1. I LOVE garage sales (was garage saling the day I went in to have my son, ha ha). I love going with other people, as it's a lot of fun. And the finds... always awesome.
