First post

After many people have encouraged me to blog about my garage sale treasures I've decided to start my own blog with help from my daughter. It'll be a joint venture as we tackle the world of wastefulness together one entry at a time. We are hopeful that by informing others about the wonderful world of living a thrifty lifestyle we'll beable to really show them that saving money is a very cool thing.

We may introduce a thing we've coined 'Thrifty Thursday' where every Thursday we'll show you a recent thrift store find (or two). Since taking great care of our husbands is one of our top priorities, we may be interjecting some posts about housecleaning, ironing, cooking and more.

Stay tuned...

Welcome to the world of blogging! I just started myself a little over a month ago and LOVE it! Take a look at the parties I usually link to each day and link your blog to them too! You'll see an increase in views and followers in no time and meet some new friends (like me!) along the way. One of the most helpful tips I have found is to remove Captcha. When people come to leave comments, if they see this they will turn away and not comment. Shoot me an email if you need help in turning it off. Again welcome and have fun!

Oh how exciting. Welcome to Blogland. Thank you so much for the gracious comment. I am definitely honored. I love to go thrifting. I live in an area that doesn't have much except goodwill and a thrift store. However, I find some real treasures that enable me to make my home prettier and nicer than it would be if I had to pay full price for all the beautiful things. I also really love the hunt. So much fun and I always get so thrilled when I find a new treasure. I look forward to reading your posts. Hugs, Marty

Ohhh...this is fantastic. I had no idea anyone had a meme like this. I garage sale every single Saturday and love sharing what I find. I simply have a terrible time going to any sort of store anymore..no matter how inexpensive they say they are. Anything over a quarter to a dollar is BIG MONEY to me. :)
I have, of course spent more..but..only for very large or VERY expensive items. All my silver collection on just one shelf did cost any more than $8.00!

Once, last year, I bought an entire set of Sterling silver for TEN dollars..brought it home and looked it up and found it was worth..$4,200. AND that was without the four large serving spoons. I was delighted.
Of course that does not happen but once in a blue moon..as they say!
I also have bought many of my clothes there...except for shoes and blue jeans.
I DO splurge on handbags though... :)
See you again soon! Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Good morning! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment. I am wondering what Captcha is? I tried to write to Kathe to find out and for some reason could not.
I hope things are going well for you. Personally, I think your going to be BIG in blogland! :)
I'm still learning and I have been blogging for a couple of years now.

PS. If you don'tknow what Captcha is, it's the word verification that has to be typed in before a comment is left, extra step most don't like to fool with.
