#trashouttuesday / shopping update & the winner!

Last Tuesday I announced our plan to only shop second hand for the entire month of January.

It’s been almost a week and I have to say it’s been easier than I thought. I’ve made a couple of trips to Goodwill and interestingly enough, I haven’t bought much at all.

There was this amazingly cute yellow couch that I ALMOST brought home:

It was a steal at only $32 and I even tore the tag off to claim it as mine…then I made the mistake of texting a photo to Brian. Dang it. He talked me out of it. “It’s too wide for where you want to put it.” Sigh. Then I thought about how it would probably be too short.

So I bought a few skirts with elastic that make this pudgy belly happy and left to go home 🙂

Yay for saving money in the new year woooohooo!

I’ve only had one dilemma in my no retail shopping scenario come up. So, I’m giving away 2 dry erase photo frames from my #makeovermonday blog yesterday, and I need some Vis-a-Vis dry erase markers to send with the frames to the winners. What do I do, y’all???

Brian says I should go buy them since it isn’t something for our family.

I think I agree. Ha.

And I do have a gift card to Target. I could use that..right?? 🙂

I just don’t want to go against what I set out to do this month. Anyone have any dry erase markers you’re not using you want to sell me???? Bhahahahahah.

So, there you have it. Week 1 almost complete and I even went into Concord Mills Mall this morning to have coffee with a friend and I DIDN’T EVEN WALK INTO A SINGLE STORE!

That’s progress there, y’all.

Also – there was an entire parking lot full of….well – seagulls. Wait. WHAT??


Yep. Seagulls. Feathers. Poop. They were there when I drove up. They were there when I left. We don’t live near the coast. Strange.

Now for the WINNERS of yesterday’s blog for the 2 dry erase frames!! Thank you for all of the amazing comments of who you would share your frame with and why – such wonderful deserving people that you all spoke of.

GINA LEHMAN!! You are the random winner – yes, I scrolled through the comments and it landed on your entry – wooohooo! You and your friend will both receive the dry erase frames soon – well, as soon as I get some markers to go with them 🙂

Come back next Makeover Monday for another fun giveaway!

Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do. Save yourself like a gazelle escaping from a hunter, like a bird fleeing from a net. [Proverbs 6:4-5 NLT]
