Thirft Diet? Tomorrow, I Binge

Originally published Sunday, Jan. 19; due to some bizarre edit mishap it republished on Wed?

Money is hella tight, so I'm supposed to stop spending it, I guess. One day, last week, I got out of work with a need for a thrift fix and like an addict I drove to the Savers in my city. When I got there, I saw the sign in the window which announced the 50% off sale for the upcoming holiday on Monday. Like a reformed junkie, I chose to look, but not buy. (By the way, while looking, I got the sale alert email for card members. Nice timing, jerks). Ok, I bought one thing. It was really cheap.

Oh, hello. I'm just trying on my 80s plaid blazer. I just brought it home and I already took in the left sleeve (I'll eventually do the right one, too). Old label in it says that it's a size 3/4. Really? I understand this isn't all that exciting. What else can I show you...

Raw materials! Nothing's more fun to look at than some pieces of wood! Ticket says $2, but I grabbed those at half off a little while ago. I put them down on that tarp like I was going to spray paint them, but I didn't! What will I do with them? Mod Podge? I don't know, but I bet I can make some sweet-ass wall art in a set of 4! Or just leave them in a pile, somewhere.
I don't believe I've shared these things.

Hey, check out my jugs. Apparently, I'll find a way to put a lame, naughty sounding pun in each post Also, help me out, Corey Hart; I take my thrift pictures at night, so that the quality is bad. It's not on purpose, it's just that I work during most of the day and it gets dark out so early. I just wanted a before picture for the blog, I'll retake when I want to put 'em on Etsy. See, that blue one looks like it was already painted by a previous owner and now it's banged up.
