thrifty thursday :: black friday deals


Okay, so I was not a very good Black Friday shopper this year- Goodwill was the only place I really shopped! They had a very rare coupon {$5 off $30} and lots of new Target surplus items out for sale, so I got everything in this picture for $28! :D

The 5-piece suitcase set was brand new and only $19.99! I was thrilled to find it, since our set was falling apart at the seams. The big canvas lampshade from Target was $4, the folder was .49, the basket was $2, and the platter was $2. The Christmas items only added to a couple of dollars, and with the $5 coupon it all came to less than $30.


Very exciting, and I only had to stand in line for 20 minutes! My mom and I did venture to a couple of other stores later, but I only found one clearance shirt, and that was enough shopping for me. ;)

So did you score any great deals last week? Or Cyber Monday ones? 

I just love hearing about great deals, don’t you?! It’s kind of like how men talk about sports- they all love to hear about that awesome score! :D

  1. i had coffee with a friend today who wanted to stop in at Loft for shoes. i went just to accompany since I am almost wholly a thrifter when it comes to clothes these days, but lo and behold they had a big sale and i scored a wool/acrylic dress for $11! Originally $79 - I couldn't believe the deal, and I just so happened to have recently found some great brown boots and a brown belt at our local thrift store that totally finished the outfit. :) $24 outfit altogether.
