Wedding stuff: My wedding dress was 60% off ($78), so that’s my favorite so far. And my flats for the reception were 70% off. My freshwater pearl and silver earrings were $3–and they’re one-of-a-kind (because I made them!), and my bracelet was homemade from repurposed beads by my mom, too.

Though I am buying pretty much everything new for my wedding, in the rest of my life I am basically only a thrift/discount store shopper despite working in a very professional environment, and I sort of feel funny getting complimented on my $3 Goodwill dresses/tops by people who make half a million a year. But funny in a good way! As another example, I regularly carry a $10 designer purse around.

I thrift allllll the time. Our entire living room is decorated with things I’ve “flipped”. I just turned an old dresser into an awesome home bar (it wasn’t really that hard, I just removed the drawers, redid all the wood and added a wine glass rack). I’m just excited that we have this awsome piece for under $20. 

 

Our biggest recent steal was our dinning room set. It was regularly about $400 for the table and four chairs. I got it on clearence at 50% off, with my SO’s member discount (an additional 30%) and then I put it on my instore credit card which was an additional 40% (and had the cash for, so i paid it off like ten seconds after I put it on there haha) The chairs were buy one get one free, so we got four for the price of two, and I got the least popular color of table, which was even cheaper. So in total, I got the entire set for $50.00.

@OldMrsMcDonald:  Lol! Pretty much clothes from the last two years or so. Lots of capris, so I still need some new blouses.
