Wal-Marting

So I figured I'd post this as my thrifty finds of the week since the listing for garage sales in the paper were few. From where we live the city we go garage saling at is over 30 miles away so unless there at least 5 or more garage sales it's not worth it to drive that far. So me and DS went to WalMart instead. Here are some of my brags.



I bought this lampshade for my goodwill lamp purchased a few weeks ago. DH said I finally found the right one - I'm not so sure. What do you think? This is from the Better Homes and Gardens collection and was on clearance for $11



At our local IGA I managed to get these great buys. The bananas were .79 for each pack and the huge pack of zucchini was priced at $1. Looks like a salad is on the menu for tonight.



Found this shirt for DH on clearance at WalMart - priced $3. They had some more but it's hard to shop for him without him there with me cause he has certain taste in clothes.



I got all this free at WalMart using free product coupons except for the Jello which was marked down .25 a box and with the .55 blinkie floating around it was free with .05 overage. I would have bought more but this WalMart has gotten particular with the one like coupon per transaction, particularly on clearance stuff, so I decided not to press my luck. Last time they made me so upset I walked out and didn't buy anything.

Happy Thrifting everyone!

great deals! I think that lampshade looks like it was made for that lamp...I had no idea they were separate...if you hadnt told me!

Wow, I love the lampshade, so romantic and looks very vintage. You did very well. I've been looking for one like that and can't find one.

I used to clip coupons alot and really saved a lot of money. Good job on those savings. I love Walmart!

That is a great deal on the produce!

I haven't been to WalMart in so long that I am jealous;)

Your lamp and its shade go together hand in hand! Good deals at the Wally Mart. I am in the minority around my neighborhood- I prefer Wal-Mart to a lot of other discount stores. I find more things there than at the other places.

It takes a lot of double coupons and free item coupons. But it's always worth it in the end.

I have that same lampshade from WalMart except mine has clear beads hanging from it.

Zuchhini didn't do well in my area this year, so I think $1 was a good price.
