Last week, I made a run to Goodwill and came out with a few goodies…although it’s questionable how thrifty they all were.
My husband is a “paper hoarder.” He tends to hang on to miscellaneous papers and receipts too long and they often pile up on top of his dresser. However, if I have some type of storage box nearby, he is pretty good about putting the papers into it, thus eliminating some of the clutter on his dresser.
When I saw this wicker picnic basket I thought it would work perfectly to hold his papers. And since I’m in the process of redecorating our bedroom, it fits right in with the new beachy look I’m going for.
Cost: $4.00 Not a bad price.
I also found this divided wicker tray and thought it would be great to keep on hubby’s dresser to corral the things he empties out of his pockets at the end of the day…his keys, wallet, work and personal cell phones etc.
It was $3.00, which I thought was a little high. I recently read where more people are shopping the thrift stores in this economy so it would appear the thrift stores are asking more money for their merchandise
…and getting it.
