Thrifty Tuesday

Since I needed to pick up some little treats for an upcoming family wedding, I visited the Dollar Store today. I haven't been in a while, which is probably a thrifty move on my part. While I do find some genuine gems on the shelves, I also feel the alluring temptation to buy stuff that I didn't know I needed until I saw it marked at the low price of only $1.00. The junky things whisper, "I'm only a dollar, only a dollar, only a dollar," and they congregate in my basket in enough numbers to put a serious dent in my weekly discretionary spending.

Having said that, I was pleased with my purchases today:

Bible CD's marked down to $.50. I picked up one that contains a section of the psalms and one that has the first half of Proverb to listen to in the car. I also bought the first 11 chapters of John for my daughter to listen to. Alas, they only have the KJV, but the reading is clear and well done, and it's a great way to sneak in a little Bible listening time.

Breathable garment and storage bags
tulle circles to wrap candles
Picture frames, of which I needed several for use at the dinner

I didn't buy any cards or gift bags today, though I find the Dollar Store to be a great resource for those things.

That is a beautiful picture you have included with this post. (Tulips are my favorite flower.) Where did you find it?

Hi Topaztook,

I can't remember where I found the photo. It is pretty; isn't it?
