My find of the day

As y'all know by now, I love finding me some good deals & saving money. I suppose that is what my Grandfather instilled in me ;) I get many questions as to how I find such good deals & let me tell you, Craigslist is one of my favorite sites! It is always a hit or miss, but if you are checking the site every week or every day you are bound to find a good deal or two. Yes, it can be scary which is why I ALWAYS make sure to have someone with me when I am picking up an item. The best parts about buying used are that first off, you save money! You can bargain & hassle your way most often to the price that you want. I always first search the oldest dates posted. Many of these items people have been trying to sell and now are at the point where they will take any amount of money to just have it GONE. Second, it is great for the environment. Buying 2nd hand items means getting the most use out of a product before it ends up sitting in a dump somewhere. And my third favorite reason, is that you get to take an old, use piece and make it your own, give it a new life & make it fit your lifestyle! You walk away with a one of a kind piece just for your home.


Today's find is one of my favorites yet! I am always looking for furniture that I can re-do myself, but every once in awhile you come across a perfect piece, already done just the way you like. And in this case it was ONLY $10. Yes, just $10!!! I couldn't believe it!

So keep bargain shopping readers! You may be surprised what YOU find . . .
