Thrifty Love

All my cleaning efforts around the house birthed a hefty load of random that needed to move out of our lives. So, the other week we had a garage sale! Thanks to Dominic’s stellar signs and my appealing Craigslist ad we had lots of visitors and many swift goodbyes to all the crap we’ve carted […]

Just Between Friends Favorites + Finds

Deals kind of make my heart go pitter patter.  Target sales? Love ’em! Goodwill score? Bring it on! Twice (or sometimes thrice!) a year consignment sales? Ohmygoodnessgracious, YES!
