One of my recent prize finds at a yard sale was this water jug. H and I had been wanting a large glass container to store our drinking water, but at Sur La Table this was $70! Never. gonna. happen. So, with a 19 liter water jug on my mind, the Lord brought me right to it for only $5. Perfect condition. The exact one we wanted. Only 12 times less!
Lastly, I found a much needed platter in our every day dish pattern (Mikasa Italian Countryside) for only 50 cents. It's currently on sale at Macy's for $69.99. For all you statistics junkies, that's 1/140 of the new price! Just in time for the holidays.
It's fairly simple to be thrifty, especially with God on your side. "...And He shall give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
