Thrift Share

I'm trying really hard not to thrift so much until I'm more organized or have fewer items stockpiled, but it's not working so great. I'm a thrift addict for sure. I just need to list, list, list. And organize. But instead, I thrift some more :)

And my buy only one book restriction went out the window worse than ever when I stopped in for a quick peek at the church thrift store my mom and I discovered right before she left me for the beaches of Florida :( A paper bag full of books for $5 sale. How could I not? Plus, I used to bag groceries in high school, so I knew it would be an efficiently packed bag. And it was. Old books, cook books, quilting/needlework books...I will sell a few of them haha.

I have also tried to make my thrift outings harder by looking for more expensive items but I really don't know what to look for yet. I found a Beatles sheet music book I thought might go for a little more, we'll see. And for whatever reason, I decided to buy a few dishes - I usually don't buy breakables because of my lack of desire to package them but I was drawn to them, so I had to haha. I bought two square bubble frames, which I've never seen before. Again, breakables - boo. I might keep them though, so that will solve the packaging problem.

I really am going to concentrate on listing more this week as I'm going on a beach vacation next week! I currently have 49 items listed on Ebay and my goal is to have 50 more by the end of the week. It's also the last week of school, so I'll have to try really hard and work in the early morning more this week as it's semi-hectic with end-of-school events for 3 chillens.

The 3 boys went to Big Bend this weekend, so the girl and I had a quiet one for a change. Floated The Blanco River in Wimberley Saturday with some friends (and then ate at Herberts yay!), cleaned house and watched 3 movies Sunday (what???? Mamma Mia, Anger Management, Alice and Wonderland), and just hung out today. Ended it all with dinner at Pei Wei. Great weekend. Now for some serious listing this week on Ebay...

As always, this is a link-up with Apron Thrift Girl, one of the best thrifting blogs out there.
