$2.00 Tuesday

Good morning .. Remember me!!  ?  Hi everyone! I know it’s been a while but, your girl had to take a hiatus from typing, blogging and thinking.. etc..   It’s so funny because I looked at my horoscope and it read: “You may find yourself in a dreary mood, Libra, with little ambition for getting things done. This may be your spirit’s way of letting you know that you need to slow down, take it easy, and take some time for yourself. You need to heed this feeling, because once you allow yourself some personal time and space you will begin to heal from this recent bout with melancholy. Yes, things are about to get better, and you need to recognize that even the most difficult times can get better.”  And truthfully speaking, that’s been my feeling for the past couple weeks.. Just feeling kind of dauncy.. a bit of ho-hum-ness.  but that’s ok.. I think we’re all entitled to that feeling.  I did make great use of my time by clearing emails, reading so many wonderful blogs (which I’ll be introducing them to you) and getting re-inspired – which is always a good thing!  So, thank you for bearing with me and following along.

I did muster up some desire to stop in Goodwill.  I needed to find a blanket for Ms. KoKo.. (I dare not buy one brand new – I always hit up Goodwill for her blankets and stuffed animals.. they’re only $0.25- $1.00.  I came across two cool items for my $2.00 Tuesday post..

A cute vintage mail holder for $0.75

and a basket planter for $1.25  – Two items.. total $2.00

The metal mail holder had a few rust spots, so I gave it a quick touch up with metallic gold paint



It’s a perfect organizer for the mail…

Not bad for 0.75 cents right?

And a planter always comes in handy.. actually I was needing one for my tropical plant.. (I’ve just been pussy-footing around going to get one… so this was perfect timing..)

Since I was painting, I decided to give it a quick new look..  I only had white and gold paints so I used them.. who knows, maybe I’ll change it later.. but not bad for $1.75

Remember… It’s not how much it costs, but its how you style it.. These items were definitely worth $2.00. Have you found anything you’d like to share..?  Don’t forget to hashtag #Urthriftygirlfinds so I can peep you out.  Until next time darlings!  ? Happy hunting..

  1. Love! Love! Love your home. It cannot be duplicated. I’m seeing lots of goodies I’d be glad to take off your hands and the $2 buck steals are two of them. I tagged you with my recent find on IG not as good as your deal but you have all the luck. Happy thrifting.

I enjoy reading your comments
