Free stuff and thrift stores are my downfall! I've run out of space in my home, too, so we share the same resolutions. I have lots of magnetic poetry words, and one of the notes to myself on my refrigerator is "First use what you have." I've got to quit dragging things home!
I went over to my friend's house to deliver a poinsettia the other day, and she had a big stack of clothes on the table that she was going to take to a non-profit thrift shop. I picked through them and found a really nice flannel shirt. Not that I'll use it for crafts, but it was fun picking. Guess I'll need to make an extra donation next time I go to the shop!
I felt like American Pickers today. A friend of mines husband cleans properties for estates and landlords. They had a home that needed cleaning and the bank didn't want to do an estate sale so they invited us over to pick through the stuff. Wow - lots of treasures.
