The Thrift List 10

I've slowly been composing my "Thrift List 10". My partners in thrift Shanna, Birdie, and I are planning a fun city-wide thrift adventure, hopefully it will fulfill my thrift needs.

My only real plate set, I found this Horizon Otagiri hand crafted Japanese set at Goodwill for $15.00 one thrifty weekend last year.

1. Large glass bowls
2. Drinking glasses
3. Frames for new artwork (bringing tape measure to ensure a perfect fit!)
4. Good quality Tupperware
5. Queen size fitted sheets
6. Queen size sheets
7. Towels
8. Work clothes
9.  Good CDs/Records
10. Curtains/Curtain Rods

I went to my first Estate Sale and a couple of garage sales weekend and found nothing listed on the Thrift List 10. Does anyone else keep "thrift lists"? Now you might be wondering, "How can you possibly leave a garage sale empty-handed?"

Simple, I'm exercising some new found thrifting Will Power. I'm not allowed to bring home anything unnecessary until I my closets and boxes of clutter are organized! Unless, of course, an item pulls on my heart strings and my soul and demands to come home with me. Hopefully this won't happen often...

* Updates: I updated the About Thriftcore/Me page with a bit more information. I also added a few more links, more will be added shortly.

  1. I like your list! My unwritten list includes dinner plates, drinking glasses, crocheted or knitted afghans, and Pyrex-type cookware. We use all those things daily, and the breakables tend to - well, break - and need to be replaced.
