A little help from the "experts"

I am in no way a "BIG TIME BLOGGER" at this moment in time.
But there are very many out there that I "look up to", I guess you can say.

A few days ago Bethany and I were talking about my future moving and refurnishing plans.
When the husband and I moved out of our last place with his dad, 
we decided to give away most of our kitchen contents.
Meaning, dishes, most cups, silverware, pots and pans.
We did this because we were anticipating buy all over again.

MEANING: I get to thrift EVERYTHING!!!

This is where I look to my "BLOG EXPERTS"

Enter Amanda from Here's Looking at me Kid...and her apartment therapy article!!

My favorite tips: 
  • Be picky! This is your dream collection. Don't just buy something because it's on clearance or because it's a steal at the thrift store. Think to yourself, "Tomorrow, will I regret not having purchased this?" If the answer is an honest "yes", then I would say, go for it!
  • Become a regular thrifter. I've found most of my new collection at local thrift stores. After I cleaned them vigorously, they made quite the charming addition to my quirky family of dishes. Also, if I find something new that I can't live without, it's not difficult to relinquish the inexpensive older items to make room for the new ones.

Wish me luck!!

'Till next time...
