There’s nothing like retail therapy, am I right friends?
I just had to show you my most recent thrifting haul from Deseret Industries. I hope to inspire you to check out a thrift store near you and see what homeschooling treasures you find!
I had this same version of outburst Junior when I was a kid. The travel outburst is going in the RV. I’ve never heard of the “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” board game, but how could I resist a game based on a book that we recently read? The coat of many colors game was a “must buy” because Bible games are not super easy to find, and it was brand new!
These books we’re all from my “wish list“, except the 2 books about Pocahontas and the Clementine book. I got the books about Pocahontas because I really like Pocahontas! I’m still trying to decide if I like a Clementine books or not… if you have ever read them please let me know what you thought of them in the comments at the end of this post.
This set of three floating shelves is going to go in my youngest son‘s bedroom to house Lego creations and knickknacks. Hopefully, it can help keep a few more things off the floor…
“Saturdays are Special” because we celebrate our Sabbath on Saturdays. “Yellowstone and Grand Teton Coloring Book” because we have RV reservations at Yellowstone in May and Tetons in June. “Anna’s Garden Songs” because I’m always on the lookout for new poetry books. “Pirates 12 Days of Christmas” because pirates + Christmas, obviously. “Frog Friends” because the 3D plastic frogs made a clicking sound. I know my three kids are too old for this book but we sometimes have littles over to visit and it is just absolutely adorable! “The Birds of Bethlehem” was on my wishlist, and anything by Tomei dePaola goes into my cart. I feel like I’ve seen “Miss Maple’s Seeds” on several booklists before. Anything Babar goes into the cart and same goes for Curious George.
I’ve been having fun using a circular knitting loom and you can’t beat the price of yarn at the thrift store.
My mom had this exact same piece of art in her home. I think she probably bought it in about 1992, the same year that my parents finished building my childhood home. I can still see it hanging on the wall between my sister’s room and the bathroom that we shared. It’s a nostalgic and sentimental piece for me. I actually bought this on the previous thrifting trip but I didn’t make a post for that one. It’s extra rewarding when you find something you once had and lost.
I’m always in the market for cool bookends. These were originally a silver finish and I spray-painted them a copper color. The Science Comics in between are from Amazon and we’ve been collecting them for the past several years. I highly recommend them. All three of my kids love reading them.
This was a big haul with books, games, crafts, storage, and decor! I’m ready for ya spring semester. Let’s do this!
