I SALUTE YOU FOR READING THIS POST! Good Afternoon, my frugal-lovin’ Peeps!  It’s been awhile, I know.  My new job at an undisclosed computer company somewhere in Ramsey County, my ever-expanding costuming hobby, and my LIFE IN GENERAL has kept me… well, running amok these last few months.  But I’m back in the blogging saddle, […] [ Read More… ]

Which is better than “time to die.”***  I’m just saying… *** Quick!  Name that movie quote!  It’s from a favorite 80’s flick.   Best Time To Buy, 4th Quarter 2013 Just like there is a perfect time of year to sell things, there is a perfect time of year to buy things.  We are now […] [ Read More… ]

    Where I Thrift

    Everyone has their favorite thrift stores, right?  Okay, you do if you love thrifting as much as I do!  Here are the stores where I enjoy popping tags:

    Saver’s in Bloomington – close proximity to Prestigious West Bloomington and Edina equals excellent, higher end thrift scores.  Remember, if you donate?  You receive a 20% off coupon you can use right away!

    Saver’s in Columbia Heights – it’s the nearest thrift store to my house, and they have the NICEST staff of any Saver’s in the TC, in my humble opinion.

    ARC Value Village – For me, ARC is hit or miss.  I either score BIG, or leave empty-handed.  Either way, I always enjoy perusing this tidy, friendly shop.
