I have a random assortment of finds to share with you guys today.  First, I realized that I never did share what my remaining fun purchases were from my Ikea trip.

For starters, I got these two frames for $9.99 a piece.  They are discontinuing this style so they were marked way down.  I think this will be perfect for my collection of family photos that I am working on for the hallway.

Next, I have been in love with the storage boxes that Ikea has for awhile - and I stocked up!  I got these magazine boxes for $2.99 for a 2-pack.

And I got these taller boxes - love for $7.99 for a 2-pack.  They can be used for hanging file boxes.

And I picked up four of these DVD boxes.  $4.99 for a two pack.  And I love how everything Ikea has is flat packed.  Those two little boxes came in that one little package! 

Next, for this weekend I think we have reached that point in summer when it is almost TOO hot to go to yard sales.  Almost - I did stop at a couple this weekend but the offerings were slim so instead - I hit up a place with great deals and AC.  The Goodwill.

I was looking for something specific - which is normally not a great way to go into Goodwill.  I needed a 16x20 frame.  And I wasn't sure if I would find what I needed.  But low and behold - for $4.99 - I found this frame with glass and two mats inside!  Now that is a deal!  Wanna see what I used it for? Check out my poster into painting project!


Now are you still hitting up the yard sales or is it just too hot?? 


Linking this up to the Thrifty Treasures Party with Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality.  Head over and check out everyone finds!!

I need to go to Ikea! Everyone seems to find great things there! I have a hard time getting to garage sales but try to hit the thrift stores a lot!

I love love love a yard sale. When I go, I try to go when they first start - 9 or 10 am - and before it gets too hot or crowded.

Yay! It works. Obviously the four commenters before me figured it out - sorry!
Great finds, btw! Looking forward to seeing what you do with them. :)
