Hey I didn’t forget this time! Brb, patting myself on the back. Welcome to another fine installment of HOTT, my hot friends. I was able to get some nice and relaxing thrifting in on my birthday recently because H had preschool in the morning. First I hit up goodwill to search for a few pots, then headed to Home Depot to buy myself some plants! More succulents, a jade plant and a houseplant I hope to keep alive.
Pots at retail are pretty dang expensive so I was happy to find some cute ones for much less. I also couldn’t pass up this little oven for Harper. The price tag was too good to be true. I think this is from Ikea or something, I feel like I’ve seen it somewhere recently. Anyways, she LOVES it, and I’m going to put it in her room (someday we will have a playroom…someday). Many wooden brownies have already been baked and hoo-boy the tea parties.
There are people who don’t “get” thrifting and I can totally understand that. Here’s one reason why I will always thrift, and why I tell people to be patient with thrift shopping. For months I have been wanting this large basket from Target for our shoes. The basket is $40 and I’m sorry but I just cannot/will not. I have been patiently stalking it hoping it would go on clearance (even then though, totally more than I’d want to spend on a basket for crying in the river) with no luck. Then once day I find this gem at goodwill. No, it’s not my beloved Target basket, but it’s the same shape and in my budget for a vessel that will hold things that people wear on their feet.
