Thrifty Thursday

Comical Coupon Cents is hosting Thrifty Thursday, where she asks fellow bloggers to share anything thrifty. We must be thinking alike this morning because she has almost the exact same post as I have!

My grandbaby visits about once a week and I needed some toys for him to play with at my house. I found him all these toys for $2.00 at a local thrift store.

I also bought him this bag of brand new handmade wooden building blocks for $1.00. They are for building a castle. I researched similar wooden blocks online and they are pretty expensive to buy new. This set of blocks is something the baby might want to keep to give to his own children some day, so I feel they were a great thrift store find!

When I go to a thrift shop I try to keep an open mind. Some trips yield nothing. On other trips I'll find treasures like the wooden block set.

Great finds! I love the bag the blocks came in.

I need to find some more toys to keep at my house too! :)

Hi Debbie,
He is getting to be such a big boy. Maybe someday he'll be the perfect husband for one of my granddaughters. LOL.
I love saving money too.

My dad made a set of blocks for my son when he was little. He cut up little odd and end pieces and I decorated a laundry bag to store them in. Those blocks were probably played with more than any other toy he had. All the neighborhood children loved them and there were many wonderful creations built from them! The thrift store toys you bought look brand new!

My mother-in-law does the same thing. She has an entire play room furnish with thrift store finds. Great finds!
