Thrifters Anonymous

Yesterday was my first pay day with my new big girl job.
When you work for the government, you must wait a whole month before you receive your first paycheck because of their processes and such. Well, it has been a very long month {financially}. See my anxiety story here.

Well, because we are recovering financially and rebuilding our savings account we must live “cut-back” lifestyle for a few weeks. Well, I have not been shopping for myself in a while. I mean I bought myself a plain t shirt from target the other day, but that doesn’t really count.

I had this crazy desire to just go shop and buy a few things. So… my solution?
Thrift Store!
I allowed myself $20, and I got cash out and only took in that $20 bill. No debit card. That would have been disasterous. I discovered several great finds. I found some clothes & shoes for my self {no belts. sadness.}. I also looked for fabrics to start making these nifty new rosette necklaces that I have discovered! Check out my first one I made!

I made this rosette necklace out of rolls of fabric from the thrift store.
I paid $1.25 for the white satin and $2.00 for the tan with pretty flowers. These rolls will probably make about 10 – 15 necklaces!! Yay! I may sell them… Hmm. There’s a thought.

I also purchased these shoes. I know that they aren’t super trendy or even all that “cute,” but they are VERY comfortable and fit the professional dress code I am under. Guess what? $3.00! STEAL!  The pants you see in the picture? Very nice, proffessional, tan dress pants. My size. STEAL
This weeks awkward moment def came when my dog pooped while i was briefly walking her on MAIN STREET during rush hour. I mean what do you do while your dog is pooping? Wave at the passers-by. I was def obligated to not watch her; I mean she needs privacy, too. 

This weeks awesome moment Wednesday. Payday. Need I say more?

I will be linking up to the following parties:
