thrift tip: used hangers

thrift tip- buy used hangers. Lots of thrift stores sells bundles of hangers for $0.99 What a steal!

I had every intention to not thrift shop this week. I was going to wait until Monday, which is Memorial Day and a huge 50% off sale at Thrift Town.

But on my way to Isaac's doctor appt today, we happened to pass a store I had never seen before. So on the way home, I couldn't resist and we decided to just take a look.

An hour later, we came out with this:

Total spent: $25.03 including tax
Some of our fantastic finds include 2 bundles of hangers, Banana Republic shorts, Carter's onsies, lots of books, wooden baby toy, gold frame for my California love art, and fabric!

There were yards and yards of canvas and I just recenetly almost bought some at Joann's. I'm so glad I waited! These were $0.99 a bundle. The other two are old sheets that will soon become part of the quilt I'm making for our bed.

This has to be my most successful thrifting adventure to date in Texas. This place has the best thrift shops (compared to San Diego and Vegas). And it's been so easy to feed my addiction. My husband says I need to join "thrifters anonymous". Maybe he's right??

Have you been thrifting lately? Any good finds??
