I tried to buy less!

Super Shocker - when you volunteer (or work at) a thrift store you end up bringing too much stuff home. I've curbed the candle holder compulsions but:


We were cleaning out old board games and I ended up with a bagged puzzle and Outburst Junior for free. I'm glad it was free because Outburst Jr. is missing pieces!


This was a dime and I wanted to hang it in out kitchen window but the chain is too short.


We trashed an ancient Monopoly set so I kept the houses and tokens. How ancient, you ask? Look at that dice and tell me.


The puzzle is actually three puzzles sorted by the shapes on the back. I spent more time separating them into three piles than assembling them:


All the pieces were surprisingly there but I don't know what I am going to do with another puzzle. My first grade niece used to love playing with them but now she is all about board games.

I am thriftily sharing: http://www.heywhatsfordinnermom.com/2015/01/thrifter-share_25.html

I would be in a lot of trouble if I worked at a thrift store! I already drag too much home!

Hope things are going well for you.

Hugs,
