Up For a Challenge?

Forget No Spend Month….it ends up being a challenge of “how much did I spend?” Month instead of a true No Spend. Truthfully, I love getting packages in the mail and to my dismay, I recently found Blitzy (don’t go there, or you’ll call me an enabler!)

I decided to shop at this awesome place called My Stash…it’s literally seconds from my desk…yep, it’s Use What Ya Got Month here at the Keep. I honestly have enough stickers, washi tape, stamps, and pens to supply at small nation (ok, a very small nation). Each day of August I will be posting a photo of a planner page or item I made using the items I already own. Caveat: I am still getting my Happie Scrappie & Cocoa Daisy items but they will not be included into my stash until September.

This is how you will know if I used what I own, it will have this convenient hashtag in the description #usewhatyougotaugust2015

ThRifTy DaZe

This past weeks declutter turned out pretty good. I only had less than 1 pound of trash to take out after I was done going through the shoe rack, closet and dresser. There are currently four bags of ¬†donations waiting to take to a local thrift shop! After my last bit of donations from the kitchen challenge, I decided to list out and give a value to the items I am giving away.¬† Also, I am learning to take my items to a store I don’t visit very often. It’s a hoot when I am visiting GW and see something I gave to the store!

I am using Salvation Army’s on line list of donated good values. My total value for donated items from this weekend is $114.84

There was a 50% off day at GW this past weekend. I didn’t go but instead started a project list of items that either need to be cleaned, painted or re-purposed. It is my goal to show you the things I do with all my thrifty finds. May end up as Thrifty Daze Thursday!

I also ended up re-purposing a vintage frame to store my earrings. I now have a place for my earrings and it adds a bit of charm to my dresser. I used left over shelf liner from the Kitchen ReDesign and taped down the sides to the glass. I inserted it back into the vintage frame and set it on the dresser.  I think it works very nicely with the rest of my decor.

I apologize in advanced for the poor quality of the photos. I am a noob to this!
