My Favorite Thrifty Finds of the Week

This was an awesome week when it comes to thrifty finds! I was anxiously waiting for the stores to reduce their Valentine’s items so I could stock up on some things for Abigail’s birthday in April and Target did not disappoint. My other fabulous find this week, was at Goodwill during their 50% off the entire store on President’s day.

Daniel and I were able to go out and celebrate Valentine’s day on Monday, but because the roads were getting icy, we ate dinner at Ninety-Nine’s and then ran down the road to Goodwill just to see if they had anything left, before heading home. (I know, not the most romantic Valentine’s date, but we had a great time) Goodwill has always been hit or miss, (lately mostly a miss), but Monday totally changed that. Here’s what we found:


We found John 3 pairs of jeans, all name brand,(without holes!!) a pair of corduroy pants, a Gap shirt and a Tony Hawk shirt. Everything was $1.50! Jeans are so expensive once you have to buy anything bigger than a 5T and since he wears holes in all his jeans, I always try to find them either on clearance or at a consignment sale. So this deal made me very happy!


I actually found a few things for me too! A brand new Gap sweater, Under armor t-shirt, and Nike shorts.


We found Abigail a Carter’s tunic and Old Navy shirt, which I absolutely love. And this cute little pink bucket for her room to store some small toys in.

On Wednesday, I decided to pop into Target and see if they had marked their Valentine’s clearance down more than 50%, and was super excited to see it was down to 70% already! (Strangely, another Target store about 20 minutes away was still at only 30%) I was hoping to find some party decorations for Abigail’s birthday in April, as well as some small things for the goody bags to pass out to her friends.

Here’s what I found! (Almost all of these items were between .30 – .90 each)

P1000178 (2)

(Paper straws, small polka-dot bowls, 2 plastic table clothes and some pink heart goodie bags.)

P1000179 P1000181

I love all these little items that will be perfect for gift bags and I couldn’t pass up these adorable gift tags, bakers twine and Washi tape. None of these things actually said “Happy Valentine’s Day” on them, so they will be perfect to use for any occasion.




The Lego’s, princess book, princess wand and coloring pads will get put in our gift drawer for those times when we need an extra gift for a birthday party. I also love the Princess and Star Wars canvas tote bags. These make great gift bags for birthday gifts since they can be re-used….and at .30 each, they were cheaper than a gift bag from a store.

If you haven’t had a chance to score some Valentine’s clearance, it’s not too late! A lot of stores are just now going down to 70% so you might be able to find some great deals. Let me know what you find!
