Unexpected Thrift

So, I was planning on staying in today. I got out the case I keep my notes and the first four printouts of the zombie books. I had planned dot go through and refresh myself and take notes and decide on a title and get that done.  I also planned to go to the post office and mail my pen pal letters and come back by the grocery store and pick up a few things. As I was getting ready to dress to go out, my friend texted and asked if I wanted to do a bit of thrifting. We were to go to a few Goodwill stores we don't get to often and were going to eat at Dairy Queen, too. I said, why not so we went.  My favorite finds were a Starbucks tumbler, a very cool iHome radio/bluetooth speaker, and a small afghan.  I also found some other assorted things. One of them being a cartridge and some photo paper for my Canon Selphy. Yay Another great find was a cute little ring planner my Kikki k! It's blue and has cats. Very cute indeed.  I took a picture of the clock and the tumbler to share.

I love my finds.  The Starbucks tumbler is pretty cool. It was one that you purchased in December of 2013 and you could bring it in to a Starbucks every day in 2016 and get a free grande (the size of the cup) coffee! Cool find indeed.


Tuesday Thrift

My friend and I went on a small thrift trip. Just Reidsville. I didn't get anything in Goodwill, but I got a pair of new fuzzy slippers and a ladle at Salvation Army.  The slippers are brand new, very fuzzy, very comfy and they are sparkly. So cute.  We went to the Goodwill in our city when we got back I found a few other things there and my favorite find was a Starbucks water bottle. It's brand new and still had the original price sticker on it! :)

Very cool, yes? I was happy to add it to my collection. It's only 13 .oz so it won't hold a lot, but it's very cute so that is okay. :p By the way, the original price was $18.95. I paid .99¢. Score! 


Big thrift, no puzzle!

I didn't have a chance to pull out a puzzle today. My friend and I went on a long thrift trip. Reidsville, Walkertown, and Mayodan. I didn't get a lot of stuff, but I did get some goodies.  One of my finds was another Starbucks tumbler! It's cute. Sadly, when we were loading the car, my friend put the bag I and my tumbler fell out and hit the pavement. :( It cracked at the bottom, but it won't interfere with its use. I just wish that hadn't happened. My poor tumbler took a tumble! :( I found two cute composition books in one GW that have black shiny glitter covers. They are so cute! They were only.50¢ I should have bought more! I will if they have any left the next time I go.  I really don't need more notebooks (HAHA) but yeah. Anyway! :p

I didn't think I would get to write tonight as I'm extremely tired, but I did get almost 1600 words so I'm happy!  I am trying to write everyday.  I STILL have no idea what I'm doing for NaNoWriMo. I HAVE to decide on that SOON. Ah! Here are a few pretty rainbow pictures I took while we were out.

A bit hard to see and not as pretty as in person, but there you go!


Hello October

I'm starting off October with a post. I really need to get back into posting daily.  I don't have a lot to share, though. :p I did go to Starbucks on National coffee day two days ago and also today for my first of the month trip! :)  Both were free as I have stars left on my card. Good thing too, because I have no money on my card right now.  I hope to still do a post-beach trip update soon.  I want to share some of the goodies I got while thrifting. We have thrifted a few times since then and I have gotten a few things that I can share too.  I love sharing my thrifting finds. They are so fun!


Saturday Evening Post

Sorry about no afternoon post.  We went out for a bit.  We went to three Goodwill stores that we had already been to.  I got stuff in two of the three. :P My friend went to a pawn shop he'd visited already and come out with a camera. It was for ME! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It was too late for me to really have fun with it outside tonight, but I'll share some pictures tomorrow.  I have a couple from the parking lot but nothing spectacular.  :P

I do have a few random pictures I took on my phone while we were out.  Enjoy and I'll see you tomorrow!

Inside the Starbucks at Murrell's Inlet, I got a Flat white and a gorgeous water bottle. I"m hoping by buying a water bottle, it will encourage me to start working out / walking again!

 


Friday afternoon / early evening post

Hoo boy am I tired. I decided to walk to the Pavilion area today.  It's been a LONG time since I walked that much. I was hurting coming back, let me tell you! LOL I walked to the beginning of the boardwalk and walked it down to the Pavilion area. I went in the Gay Dolphin and bought a cute shirt and a few stickers/decals.  I then walked across the street to I love Sugar.  I wanted bulk nerds. Guess what they didn't have? WAH!!!!!!!! lol, I wanted my damn Nerds! I did get some of the little Cotton candy-flavored candies that I like a few random things to try. I love bulk candy. Goodness, gracious! :p

I went to the first Starbucks that I came to, the one in the Bay View Resort.  I got a caramel ribbon crunch frappuccino and it was delicious! I was able to pick up a few cards I didn't have, too.  I went to the Oceanfront Starbucks but I didn't get anything in there today.  I just wanted to visit. I saw a water bottle that I adored at the Bay View and was going to buy it at the Ocean Front one, but they didn't have it. Oh well, I'll get one or something else I love. :P

I walked back along the Boardwalk and then when I got to the end, I took off my shoes and gave my poor feets a break, and walked in the surf back to the hotel. That was nice and my feet were much happier with me! It was nice to walk in the daytime as so far, I've only been on the beach at night.  I still will go tonight, but you know how it is! :P I took a lot of pictures and I'll share some here. Maybe I'll do a complete Google photo album of the trip when I get home. For now, enjoy these pictures I took along the way.

Thrifting is fun!

I got some great things today! I found a Sak bag, a Fossil bag, two Starbucks mugs, and the cutest Starbucks ceramic tumbler EVER. It's so damn cute! It's from 2015 and you'll see it below.  I got various other things, too! One of the neat finds was a Ziploc bag of vintage iron-on patches still in the original packaging! Very, very cool! Here are some of my finds and a cute tree at one of the Goodwill stores:

 

You can click on any picture to see the entire thing.  I love my finds!


Thrifting post a day late.

I sat down to make this post last night and got distracted. I don't even know what distracted me, now.  We went to Reidsville and went to Salvation Army and Goodwill.  I was able to find a Coca-Cola crate at Salvation Army. I already have two, so I was happy to add another. I also got a stamper, a little tray, and some stickers. The tray was neat. It hs the Eiffel tower on it and it's got French writing on it. Very cute.

At Goodwill, I found a clear Starbucks cold cup and a tumbler.  I also found a little pack of four mini notebooks and a silicon tray with pumpkins. I'm guessing either for candy or ice cubes. I'm going to use it for pumpkin ice cubes. :) We got back to Danville and went to one of the Goodwill stores here.  I found a red and white Starbucks holiday mug and another small pack of stickers. Decent haul for all. Here are the Starbucks things:

Sigh, so much for staying home on my birthday!

I went over to Starbucks to get my birthday drink. As I'm leaving the drive-thru, my friend texts me.  I had been re-considering doing a thrifting trip today. I decided to go for it! We went to Reidsville, Walkertown, and Mayodan. I got a vintage General Electric tape recorder! :)  I also two two Starbucks tumblers. One a sparkly hot or cold tumbler and one a venti cold cup.  I was happy to find these as they were in wonderful condition.  I also found a Kate Spade handbag! @_@; I'm not sure it's genuine, but I think it is, I'll have to research tomorrow. It looks just like a real one I found via a search. It's not really my style bag, but it was a Kate Spade! :p

Other things I got were a bag of scrunchies, an 'art' kit, a container with some various markers, a glittery jack o lantern, 2 pairs of fuzzy socks and one pair of striped knee-high socks (all new), an adulting note pad, and a pack of inserts for a Happy Planner. Oh, also two sets with a pen and a pad of matching notes.  Not a bad haul.  Here are the cups:

Nice, yes?  Here is the Kate Spade bag:

No thrift for me. Phooey!

I thought my friend and I were going thrifting today.  We talked about it yesterday, but it didn't come to pass. Boo! I did run down to the grocery store to pick up a few things I needed. I wanted to get myself a little cake for my birthday tomorrow, but they were all out of birthday cakes! Phooey!  I got a six-pack of cupcakes instead.  Pink and yellow ones.  They are delicious as I had one early! :p  A funny thing happened when I was in the store. I went down the cereal aisle and there are several kinds of bagged granola there. I love granola and it hit me that I had bought two bags on my last trip. Then, I was going over in my mind, well, did I buy them? Did I get home with them? Where the heck are they! So when I got home, I looked and they were in the cabinet! lol I would have found them eventually, but it was funny because I had forgotten all about them!

My little Goontz hit 100,000 miles today! :( Poor fella!  I took pictures of the odometer at 99,999 and at 10o,000! I plan to stay in tomorrow except for running to Starbucks to get my free birthday drink. It's only available on the day of your birthday. I hope to run over and get that, but I might just skip leaving the house altogether and just spend a quiet day at home. My plan is to just relax and do whatever I want, so going out may not happen!

Thrift yesterday? :p

Yes, I totally forgot to post yesterday.  It's bad especially since I said I would try to post more.  So, what did I get?  A few good things. In the Salvation Army, I found a steal!  I have been wanting one of those receipt scanners for a while now. They are so expensive! I saw one in Salvation Army and opened the box to look. The scanner was still in the plastic!  I bought it and it was complete. The software, cord, and literature were there and it was brand new.  I was able to get the latest software online and install it. I plugged it and it was a go! It works. I'm very pleased with it. It's an older model but it works great and it's very small and portable. Here it is:

PXL_20210819_015325310~2

I love it! We went to Goodwill and I found a box of assorted pencils and crayons in a nice reusable box. I also picked up two mugs.  A Starbucks one and a Bee one. 

PXL_20210819_020916438

The angle is odd on this. The Starbucks cup looks tiny but it's not. It was a short trip, only two stores, but I am glad we went. That little scanner is so cute! I can save receipts (or anything for that matter) as a .png file or a .pdf file on my computer.  I'm going to add a notebook in Evernote for receipts. Another great use for Evernote. ^_^


Thrift again!

I didn't think we were going, but my friend texted and asked and I said okay!  We went to Reidsville, Walkertown, and Mayodan.  I got some goodies, but I am only going to share my favorite finds. These were both in Mayodan.  Two Starbucks cold cups! :)  I don't find a lot of cold cups, most of the ones I find are for hot beverages.  These two were near each other on the shelf. The brown one was $.99 and the clear one was $1.99. I fell in total love with the clear bumpy one.

Good grief, not again!

Guess what I did today? I went thrifting! LOL, I was not expecting to go at all. I will take pictures of some of my stuff tomorrow as it's late now and I have stuff to do before bed.  I found some good things. Three Starbucks things being just a few of the goodies. I'll do a better post tomorrow. As for now, I am going to get some things done and crash. I'm exhausted. We went to a LOT of Goodwill stores. 


Thursday thrift?!

Well, yes.  We usually go on the long trip on Friday, but my friend has some plans tomorrow.  He still wanted to thrift, so we did the whole trip today.  We hit Reidsville, Walkertown, and Mayodan!  At Reidsville, we went to the Salvation Army and neither of us found anything to buy. That is unusual! We went to the Goodwill and I found a few goodies. The best being a blue lamp just like the pink one I got some time back. It's so cute! Now I have a spare.

At Walkertown, I got a Starbucks tumbler that is so cute and an adorable Sak purse. Total price for both? $3.00. Whee!  Our last stop, Mayodan was pretty good, too.  I found a cute digital camera. It was $3.50 and it had a little case, and even a plug-in device to recharge rechargeable AAA batteries. It was worth it for the case and the charger alone. The camera does work, I tested it when I got home. :)

I found a few other little things in there and a light blue Caboodle! It's the same size as the pink one I found on another trip.  So weird to find two Caboodles in the same Goodwill on different trips.  I did take a few pictures of the best goodies to share.

I love these cute finds! The Starbucks tumbler is so pretty. I love the colors.  That is what caught my eye with the Sak bag too.  It was a great thrift trip. The lamp was a great find because I love the pink one so much. It's nice to have a backup! Now, I plan to relax and enjoy the rest of the week and the weekend! :p


Impromptu thrift!

My friend and I went to eat tonight at a local Italian place we love.  We decided to check out the two local Goodwills since it was late and we weren't going out of town.  I found a few things in each place.  Here are my favorite finds.

A Starbucks tumbler from 2011 and some coffee and donut socks! :D  So cute!
