Bloom and Harris Teeter SCORE!

It's been a long time since I have posted! I'm trying to get back into the game again and I think today's shopping trip gave me the boost I needed. I was able to purchase all of this for just $68.05!!

This does not include the 2 packs of Gatorade in the garage. I saved a TON of money by taking advantage of the triple coupon deal at Bloom and the double coupon deal at HT.

Why I Love Thrift Stores

Today, I made a quick stop at the local thrift shop in my town. I love this place - they have SO much to choose from, it's well organized, and the prices are right.
My little one found a cash register complete with paper money and change for $2.90. I found this:

It's a large ceramic pumpkin with a large 4 wick candle inside. I didn't even realize that it once held a candle - I just thought it would be cute for fall decor. I took my find home and washed it. When I turned it over I couldn't believe my eyes - $75.00!!! Who in their right mind would pay $75 for a candle??
It was also signed on one side so I decided to do a little research. Turns out it was a candle that was carried by Bath and Body Works last year and was extremely popular (I still can't believe anyone can pay that kind of money for a candle...)

My price? $6.90. Yeah, baby.
