Fabulous Finds for Under Four Dollars!

pageI really hit the jackpot on this week’s thrifitng finds! Several of them were brand new and at a ridiculously low price, so you know I loved that! Plus, they were actually very useful, so that always helps since I am really trying to reel myself in a little! lol First, I found these wonderful Southern Living at Home casserole caddies at my Goodwill a week apart! Strangely enough, the smaller one was priced higher at $2.92 while the rectangular one was only $2.32! Woo hoo!


IMG_1847 They are in the now-retired Clairmont pattern and were originally around $30 or so each! My daughter bought the rectangular one at a Southern Living party a while back and now has me on the lookout for the square one! I think I am winning her over to GW hunting! lol


page1 I found this one while on the hunt with my friend Linda at Nina’s Nest…a brand new Bodum French coffee press…their Starbucks version! And do you see the tag…$39.95? I paid $3.53! As my grandson says Wow, zowee, wowee, zow! lol I have a smaller one that I found a while back, but it makes only one cup, so I will enjoy this one! After all, who drinks only one cup of coffee? Not me!


IMG_1841 I couldn’t pass up this blue and white pitcher because I had one like it that met with an unfortunate accident at the hands…er, paws…of our co-host Baby Kitty…which may explain why he is staying away from this post! lol I added it to the vignette on my hutch.


IMG_1853 Another find still in the wrapper is this recipe binder for $3.53! I was really excited to find this one…


IMG_1771…because, as you may have seen in a previous post, this is how many of my recipes look! I want to leave them in their present form because the little scraps of paper remind me of where I was and who I was with when I wrote them down. The binder has clear plastic sleeves where I can store them and still see them.


IMG_1860 Plus, I have recipes that I collected while I was in France that I want to leave as is. Notice that I had to convert the measurements to something I could understand. And figuring out the temperature on a French oven that only says 1, 2, 3 etc. on the dial is a whole different post! lol


IMG_1857 Hmmm…this is the metamorphosis part of my post, but I can see this is going to take waaay longer than I thought! So this will have to be a metamorphosis in the works!  I’ll do this while I watch The Bachelorette! (Oops! Did I say that out loud?)


IMG_1861 And here’s my favorite find…a teeny-weeny, but just-right sized rocking chair! I am going to leave this one as a little teaser for next week’s post when I will reveal its occupants!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please visit these wonderful ladies and their beautiful blogs to see what they are up to and to find a list of this week’s participants!

  2. Debbie you hit the jackpot plus!!! I love those So Living casserole holders. The recipe book is just what you needed and I love how you want to keep those bits & pieces you wrote recipes on! I love the bench and can't wait to see who gets to sit there!

  3. Wow! The coffee pot alone was a steal!

    Best laid plans - I was going to go yard saling yesterday but ended up reading a book instead. Oh well, it's a great book so far - only 300 pages to go!

  8. You are the GW Queen. There is no doubt about it. I went yesterday with a friend and we found nothing!! I guess we weren't in the mood. We did have a great lunch though!! Love the blue and white pitcher and the casserole holders are a great idea. My Mom converted me years ago I was just like your daughter, would not cross the door of a GW. Now it is like a playground!! Happy weekend, Kathysue

  9. jealous beyond jealous of your finds at GW! Love the rocker you didn't say how much? Love the recipe binder, I just spent a lot of time putting all my recipes on my computer in hopes to find on and print them off. Can't wait to move back to USA and have a GW to shop at. Have a wonderful Memorial day weekend.

  13. Hi Debbie, I'm going to invite myself over so we can have coffee from your new French press and I'll bring popovers that I made from my $1 fab find from a recent garage sale. I had been looking for a popover pan for some time and finally found one!

    Have a great Memorial weekend!

  18. Love those casserole caddies. I'll have to look for some when I'm out and about. I don't have high hopes, though -- I never see Southern Living stuff in Colorado. You had a very good week thrifting!! Sally

  21. Debbie, I find myself eager to see what new GW finds you'll show each week. You certainly came home with some great deals. Now I'll be waiting to see who will get to sit in that cute double rocker. You tease!
    Hope you have some special plans for tomorrow. Just a quiet time here with family over for hamburgers. ~ Sarah

  22. Debbie, love your finds! You always have good luck at Goodwill. I have a cookbook put together just like that too. Those clear pages are great. Now, to keep it updated, would be the trick.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow Debbie, you are finding some wonderful things. Don't you just love to go into GW and see what they have next. YOur casserole caddies are fabulous. I know you will really enjoy them. Love the coffee press too. I don't even want to think about trying to organize recipes, you look like you are on your way thought. The little bench rocker is just adorable. I can't wait to see what you do with it. Hope you are having a super weekend. Thanks for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  29. Your crown as the Queen of Good Will is still safe, I think! I have used photo albums over the years with the clear plastic sleeves to keep up with loose recipes. I have visions of someday scanning them all into the computer so I never lose one again! Am I funny or what?

  31. Yes, you found some great stuff. I'd love a coffee press. I just bought a recipe organizer at Marshalls a couple weeks ago for $9.95. Took me a week to organize!

    ReplyDelete

  37. Hi Debbie,

    My recipes (in a jumble) look a lot like yours - you'll have fun getting yours organized in their new holder and probably be inspired to whip something up in the kitchen! Fun finds!

  42. What great Thrifty finds! Most of all I love the prices! lol The SL casserole caddies, the coffee press just wonderful!I adore the blue pitcher! The bench is so darling! Is it going to be a kittens chair??? Can't wait to see what you do with it! Love the runner and drapes! I was making some similar but at a stand still. lol Next time I want to come to GW with you! You find the greatest Treasures!

  43. Bargains galore! I have that exact same French Press and while I did buy it on sale, it was nowhere near the deal you found.

    I'm with you on saving recipes in their original form. I love having those written down by relatives. I'm working on a family history book and have included recipes of many. If it's one that I don't own, I scan or take a photo to include. May not be the original, but it allows me to share with other family members. Great job, future generations will love it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love that rocker, Debbie- Hurry up and show what you're gonna do with it! Great finds on that French press, the pitcher, and those casserole holders- I need one of each. Did I say NEED? I WANT. Do I have a problem reeling it in? Nah.... I just choose not to control myself... LOL

  46. Very nice! I've been hunting for a large old enamel bowl and found one yesterday. It had two price tags on it (prior to it coming into the Goodwill) for $1.50. Goodwill marked it up to $11.94. Needless to say, I let Goodwill keep it. I actually found a LOT of awesome pieces yesterday, but they had them all ridiculously overpriced. They had 3 large milk cans (which I love) $50 each. Seriously? I can get them cheaper at an antique mall! 2 small silverplate cups $24.94 EACH! Someone in the back doing the pricing done lost their mind! At least one of us is finding some deals! (i won't even mention the almost $500 iron bed...oops I just did). I'll be positing pix of some of these goodies on my blog later this week.

  48. Debbie, I was glad to witness the purchase of the French coffee press....especially since I had just bought one full price! Love anything S.L., and I can't wait to see what you do with that rocker....I know it'll be fabulous! Linda

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow, Debbie,
    What great goodies you found. I also have old recipes written on scraps of paper or on the back of a receipt. They do bring back a lot of memories. I love seeing my Mom's or my Grandma's writing on these recipes. They aren't with us any longer and I definitely will save these for future generations.
