Thrift store haul

I need to do a lot of things: laundry, cleaning house, getting plumbing and electrical repair estimates and buying groceries. I did none of these, I went to the thrift store after work instead.

I went in looking for a full sized navy blue flat sheet. The navy and purple sheets I bought before turned out to be twin size so I’m still searching for a full flat sheet. I didn’t find one. The first rule of thrifting is “do not go in expecting to find a specific thing.” Go with an open mind, an open heart but keep your purse/money close. 

I admit to looking for a couple of OSU t-shirts, the logo ones, in black but preferably orange. I found OSU shirts but not the kinds I pictured. I didn’t go expecting to find a great Doctor Who shirt or Vera Bradley bag or the travel organizer. I’ve wanted a Vera travel organizer but even at the outlet store they are a tad pricey. I saw some at Target and Wal-Mart,  not as cushy but okay and cheaper. But since I don’t plan to travel again for a long time I put the idea aside. Then I saw this one, the price was right so I put it in my cart. 

Today’s total


It’s been six years but we were Big 12 champs and won’t forget it half ptice, 1.00

Back of shirt, unfortunately will be covered up by my hair

Before Bedlam I realized I needed more than 1 OSU t-shirt. My hair should clash wonderfully with the pink and orange. full price, 1.99

I had to show my Doctor Who sign, from the Hastings in Norman. Perfect. Half price, 1.00

This will be covered up by my hair too


Another Vera bag, I may put it up on ebay, I may keep it. Still debating. 3.99

Hanging travel organizer, I’ve been wanting one since I got back from Saigon. Full price, 1.99

Bonus accessories– 2 band-aids, bunch of Q-tips, facial wipes. No cash though.
