Shopping Haul

The only time that I usually go shopping is on payday,  That’s once every other week.  I actually don’t like to go shopping.  The crowds drive me nuts, the traffic is always congested, and I’m usually in a hurry.  Beside, I don’t spend money when I stay home.  (ahem)  But this day, I needed a couple things, so off I went.

First stop, JoAnn Fabrics.  Oh, I have to be careful when I go there.  I could browse that store for hours.  I’ve been very careful not to go insane because of my love of fabrics, but I needed some for a special order.  And JoAnn fabrics has gotten in some NHL fabric! (and I couldn’t resist the NFL fabric either.  Pittsburgh does have its fans.

I also needed a shade of blue paint that I was out of.  I knew that JoAnn’s carried the brand I needed.  And I’m working on some copper projects, so the copper glitter fit the bill.

While I was walking around the store, I couldn’t believe that I found a curtain rod that I’ve been searching for!  It’s a plain curtain rod, but it has a 5″ return!  I know exactly what I’m going to do with this!  (can you tell how excited I am?)

The next stop was to the Dollar Tree.  I was almost out of their scrubbies.  I love these.  And the best part is that I cut them in half to fit the palm of my hand, so I have twice as many.

Then I found some miniature stickers.  They’re perfect for my planner.  And I think that 832 stickers will last me for awhile.

I also grabbed some notebook paper since I was out.  I really should have waited till Walmart got theirs in, because I would have saved 25 cents, but, like I said, I was in a hurry.

Then, while there, I did what I know I shouldn’t do.  I went into the dish aisle.  I fell in love with these plates.  By now, you know I have a ‘thing’ for black, grey & white.  I couldn’t resist these.  I don’t know if I’ll go back for the bowls & cups, since I have so much black, white & clear to go with them.  I just don’t know which way I like them better.

And for the final purchase at the Dollar Tree… Wise Cheese Doodles.  This is the only store that keeps them on hand, and they’re my sweetie’s favorites.  I always stock up on them when I’m there.

On the way home, I stopped by the Goodwill.  I really wasn’t expecting to find anything.  What I did find was a lovely set of white napkins.

A set of shell salt & pepper shakers for 99 cents.  They were so cute.

And on my way out, I saw this:

This is the same night light that my Aunt Millie had gotten for my son when he was first born.  Unfortunately, it had gotten broken when we moved.  I just had to have it!  And I can’t believe the price!

It was in perfect condition!
