Thrifting like my old self!

I stopped by my favorite thrift shop after my frustrating run in with Occ Health last week.  I needed a couple books to read and Bubbie and I were a few days away from our library jaunt.  It was fun to walk around (and good exercise) and I found a few things I can actually use.  No bringing home things I don't have a purpose for - that's my new motto.
 I spent a whopping $11.  Two books for a buck each.  I found them on Amazon here and here.  I think I did pretty good, considering. No shipping to pay! The book selection at this thrift store is pretty paltry, but I was happy to score these. 
 I also found a Rubbermaid butter saver (retail $10) for 1.50.  I never buy anything but real butter so this will keep an open stick from tasting like the fridge. This Fiskars mat is in mint condition (retail $20) for $2.25.  I love my rotary cutter, so this will be put to good use.
 
Lastly, this accent mirror was $5.25.  I have a spot to hang it, but I'm thinking I might spray paint it - not sure when I will have time to do that, though.  Tomorrow I start back at work.  Which doesn't mean I won't have time during the week anymore to thrift shop.  In fact, it may be just what the doctor ordered.  What about you?  Done any thrifting lately, or are you mainly trying to purge for Spring cleaning?

I'm doing a bit of both here and there. I really want to get to the goodwill this week, so hopefully I have time. That mirror will be great painted :)
