The local thrift stores -- we have several -- are our go-to places to shop. Taking a quick look around the house:
Two living room chairs adapted from swiveling RV seats
Three dining room chairs -- the fourth one was broken
A four-drawer file cabinet that needed minor repairs and repainting
My desk chair
A double-sized captain's bed
Our coffee pot
Assorted kitchen gadgets, cat and dog food bowls, flatware
About half my clothes and most of Hubby's
Assorted crafts materials, yarn, knitting needles
Most of my books -- you can't beat a five cent book
Half a dozen exercise videos -- from the "free" basket outside
Our bathroom sink and countertop
Of course we also donate back what we're finished with or can't use. Our latest donation went to Paws and Stripes, which matches up veterans dealing with PTSD and shelter dogs, both causes dear to our hearts.
Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.
Housework done imperfectly still blesses my home.
Build like a lord -- live like a slave! Build like a slave -- live like a lord! Sumerian proverb
“The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.”
