Thrifty Things Friday #119

Welcome to week #119 of
Diann and I are always so happy when you join us!

As you know I'm not doing much thrift shopping since I'm 'downsizing'...but...
It's hard to stop looking and of course when I look I usually find a little something I need!
I just had to have this cute little Rooster! 
A nice bright spot in the new kitchen for $1 

I've been doing a lot of summer reading in the evenings and was in need a few new books, so of course I go to the thrift shops
I found five books and the total was $2 for all!!

So what thrifty thing have you shared this week?
Please go over to The Thrifty Groove and link up your posts!

Just love buying books that way, but my stack is taller than my reading time allows. Looks like yours is too Linda. Love your cute rooster. Thanks for co-hosting.

Your little rooster is very cheery, and that's a nice selection of books. Today I chose 2 books for free, from Amazon, in their Amazon Vine program, so that is thrifty too.

I need to go thrifting with you.

I went to a thrift shop yesterday looking for a piece for the entryway and they wanted $300 for a cheap old dresser.
