Just Between Friends Portland —> Budget for Shopping Success

It’s no secret … I’m a thrifty mama. Not much can bring me to pay full price. Even some “sales” are not sale-y enough for me. That’s the truth. Hence, I sing the praises of Just Between Friends, the most amazing consignment event known to the mothering universe. I’ve shared about my experience before, twice […]

Thrifty Love Gift Exchange

I recently participated in the Thrifty Love Gift Exchange with a bunch of fellow bloggers and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome! Not only did I get to swap some thrifty treasures, I made a new friend … Alysa of Inspired RD! Alysa is truly an inspirational mama, definitely take a peek at […]

Our Cozy Corner

Last month Dominic, Jemma, and I moved into my parent’s home. Since we’re in the midst of buying property to build, they so graciously offered up their spare room as our transition space. Initially, we thought we would be here for 3-4 months. But, thanks to the lovely county dragging out some details on the […]

When Clearance is Cheaper Than Thrifting

I almost hate writing this because thrifting is so freakin’ fabulous. But let me tell you, when Value Village tries to charge me $8.99 for a maternity shirt from 2003 I have to shake my head and wait around for 50% off holiday Monday. Feel me? I mean, if it is really super cool, I […]

H.O.T.T. Goodwill is My Friend

Linking up with the lovely Mandy for High on Thrifting Thursday! This week was a super thrifting success – I’m in love with my finds! Sweetest vintage patchwork quilt Nursery rocker – thinking of staining the arms and perhaps reupholstering Anthro “J” teacup for Miss Jem And … Jemma smiling and saying “geeees” (rhymes with […]

Galosh B’Gosh

Get it? Galosh B’Gosh … kind of like OshKosh B’Gosh. Ok … lame I know. But still, the point is … I’m pretty much 100% positive that I can see the future in shoe trends. I saw the moccasin thing coming.Then the boat shoes.  I’ll admit I missed Toms, but am fully on board now […]

High on Thrifting Thursday!

Heavens to Betsy! When I saw this high chair my heart started beating so fast – I had to have it! When I had walked in the store (a new one to me that I will definitely be back to) I saw a sign … “75% off all furniture”. Of course, this particular piece wasn’t […]

Thrifty Treasures

Buying something on sale is a very special feeling.  In fact, the less I pay for something, the more it is worth to me.  ~ Rita Rudner I hit the thrifty jackpot at Value Village the other week … Navy Saltwater sandals for Jem to grow into Legit pink Crocs, also to grow into Pampered […]

Thrifty Treasures

Consistency is not my strong point these days, but I do want to try out a new feature as I’ve really amped up my thrifting and garage sale-ing skills as of late. May I present, my awesome stack of fabric steals! About 15 yards of fabric for $12. I’m telling you – garage sales are […]

Tons of clothes, books, movies, furniture, supplies and all things baby! Dominic gets Father of the Year props for his 4-hour shopping trip. That’s right … 4 […]
