Today's thrifty shopping

Linking up with Mimi's Five star frugal link up


I stopped at CVS this morning. I used ECBs from my last purchase, an email coupon from CVS and manufacturer coupons on everything,
I got 3 mascaras and 3 dental floss and spent $4.34 cash and got back $13 in ECBs for my next purchase.


I also stopped at my favorite thrift store.  I spent $5 for this mini doughnut pan and a handful of teaspoons. 

The doughnut pan is small. I will try baking some mini ones but if it is too much trouble, then I am sure the grands would be very happy to use it to make play dough doughnuts. 

I don't mind if the spoons don't match, I have a big assortment of silverware. When all our family is here, we might have 15 or so people here for meals.  We usually use disposable plates but everyone prefers real silverware.



I got these old magazines from the thrift store free pile.
The Burda sewing magazine has a big section of uncut patterns in the center, I am wondering what they are.  The date is 1989 so they may be very out of style, who knows.  


Have you found any good deals?

  1. I'm so proud of you at CVS. I understand a little how to do those deals but they overwhelm me. Have you written a post where you explain step by step how to do those kind of deals? Everything is going up.

  2. Hi Rhonda! Thanks so much for sharing this post at Five Star Frugal. I'm fascinated by your CVs. As an Aussie, I'm a bit lost...lol! Nonetheless, great bargain shopping, and I am envious of your Burda magazines...Mimi xxx

  3. I haven't gotten to go in awhile but I need a few things and hope to go soon. I'm trying to think to thrift for it before I buy it.
