Last Saturday I tore through my stash. I weeded out fabric, notions, yarn, felt scraps, and project ideas that no longer inspired me. I also dug through my closet and got rid of any clothes that no longer fit or were too worn to save.
I feel like I am starting with a clean slate. I’m excited about what I have and know what I don’t need to buy on my thrift store excursions. I also know what I don’t have and can take advantage of super deals without wondering, “Do I really need this?”
I found some really great things on my last trip to Goodwill and have to share. First up, buttons! There were tons of these little grab bags and I had to dig around to find one that I really liked. All of these for $4. I love them! A lot of them are the perfect size for brightening up some of my existing shirts.
I’ve also been meaning to make some scrubbies, but couldn’t bring myself to spend $5 for a ball of nylon yarn just for scrubbies. I had been waiting for a 40% off coupon, but then I found these for $1 a ball. They had a ton and I exercised serious constraint buying only three.
And finally, I’ve been wanting to make Bella a little tutu. I was thinking of something like Zoe’s, but she really likes Abby Cadabby and I was thinking about using some purples and blues, too. How awesome was this find?
I don’t know what I’ll do with the extra. There are four yards of each! For $2, though, I couldn’t pass them up. The colors are perfect!
Goodwill is having its 99 cent sale on Easter Sunday. It’s awfully tempting. I might sneak out for a little stroll by myself, even if it is a holiday.
