Thrifty Thursday: Thrift Store Finds
But, Tuesday, my daughter for her braces off (yay!!!) and better yet they did the X-rays to make sure her bite and everything was good and they said that her X-rays looked good, including that they couldn't see any cavities in her teeth (course we won't know 100% until next week at the kid's dental appointments). Since she was so good during her appointment, we figured we could spare a few dollars to go the used store and see if we could get her a reward.
And I did find her a stuffed princess doll for 1.00 (better yet I found out by my daughter dressing her up that she fits into 18" doll clothes, so that might make Christmas even easier yet :) but then I went and looked around wondering if I'd find anything cheap that was on my yard sale and thrift store list.
I seriously hit pay dirt! I've been looking for a new rice cooker as the bowl on my old one is just plain shot (non-stick coating is gone, aluminum is starting to pit, etc) and once I found that I couldn't get a replacement bowl for my old one, I figured I'd have to get a new one. Unfortunately, the cheapest I was able to find was one for 15.00 or over on clearance and I didn't have the money when I'd see them. So I was looking at having to pay 30.00 to 50.00 for a new one.
And then I found the one above. A brand new rice cooker. I looked inside. It's never been used, still has the original cord securing thingies in place and even has the original rice paddle to serve the rice. It's a lot bigger than my old one (8 cups vs. 4) and the best part? A 6.00 price tag!!!
So, yay! Bargain shopping went well for me this week :). How about you? Found anything cool at the used stores/yard sales lately?
