THRIFTY FINDS FOR TUESDAY!


I wanted to share some of my fabulous finds from last week.  I am showing you sale/clearance items that I found!  I love a bargain and when things are marked down in a major way...I'm on it!!


I stopped at Dollar General to check out their fall decorations
I found some leftover summer items at 70% off! 
I found these two dark red planters for $2.40 each
They are large and will hold some beautiful Mums


You must know by now I love birds!
This little red guy was $1.80

Along with this cute blue bird

Another place I like to check for clearance is
Garden Ridge
So what's in the bag?  
Lots of faux flowers! They had the Spring flowers marked down to 90% off
I don't prefer faux but sometimes when tablescaping and to stay in my budget faux is what I use and I got some awesome stems! 
All this was less then $5

I'm linking up to 
With Linda at Coastal Charm

Don't for get my giveaway going on

Always,
Linda

Linda,
Thanks for sharing your discounted items...I was in a Dollar General last week and looked at the summer stuff...didn't see any of those cute birds...guess I need to check another location!

Blessings,
Linda

I also have a passion for birdies. Actually, my daughter just brought home 2 from the Animal shelter. I think I like them better being fake! Oh well.

This is a great time to shop for summer stuff....trouble is I'm so ready for fall I'm bypassing the summer bargains!

We used to have a Garden Ridge here -- it's been gone for about 6 years or so -- I still miss them. (but I used to get in trouble!!!!!)

Great fines, Linda. Loved the little birdies. You know, by now, I love birds, too. (Birds of a feather flock together, right?) Good deal on the faux flowers, too, and the pots. Wowsers. Susan

That planter is gorgeous!

A Hopeful Heart said...

You got a fabulous deal on all the faux flowers. 90% off, wow!!! Even if one doesn't overly love faux flowers, that is a deal too good to pass up, because you KNOW you will use them sometime.

Have a lovely day,
Patti
