I don't know how much I'll be able to post today. I'm not feeling well, and I have stuff to share but need to wait an additional day or two before I reveal all.
If you have been keeping up since this blog's inception on Saturday, you know that I have made 'themes' for each day. The one for Thursday (today) is "Thrifty Thursday" and I will be sharing ideas on thrift shopping and being frugal (this is the frugal goodness I mentioned in my first post). I don't really have anything to share today since it's been a busy day - had to drive to p'cola to pick up LOML* from the airport - and I am tired (too much Halloween last night) and sick.
I do want to share a little bit about thrifting. I am awful good at thrift store shopping (Goodwill especially). I have a knack for finding good quality, name brand clothes among a long rack of other items. The trick? I look at the material. You can always tell a good quality material just by looking at it, like the thread count in good sheets. I hardly ever have to go through the clothes at a thrift store one at a time, unless I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I can usually stand back and look at a section of rack and locate the higher quality items just based on the material. Of course, if you are looking for something more quirky or with more character, this is not the method to use.
Alright, I'm tired and want to chill out for a bit. I'm sorry if this didn't make any sense and that I was not well prepared today. I will try to share more next week.
