Goodwill & Dollar Store Finds

I HATE spending money... Yes, I'm one of those people who hates shopping because it means I have to get the wallet out. I even coupon, and use cloth diapers to save a little money.
Well, since I hate forking over money, I LOVE finding a good deal. So I thought I would share a few of my recent fun finds here.

My mother gave me a Novak Poppy print a while ago and I just love it. It's actually the right over my fireplace in our main living room... That's how much I love it. Anyway, I was super stoked to find not one, but two Novak poppy prints at Goodwill the other day! So for a whopping $4, I got two more lovely poppy paintings to go with my Mum's Poppy print! YAY.

Check out that lovely price tag! :D

My Mum's Poppy print, and my Goodwill Finds!

Also, recently I fell in love with NaptimeDiaries scripture prints, and I just had to have them.... I even had the perfect place all picked out. So I found room in our budget (okay, I just splurged a little), and bought a few. The only problem is that frames, specifically pretty white frames aren't cheap, even with a coupon! So I ran over to our local dollar store and picked up a few cheap-o frames, brought them home, spray painted them white, and volia! You can't even tell they were bought from the dollar store! (Oh, P.S. the middle frame is from Hobby Lobby, but it was broken, so they sold it to me for $3 instead of the $20 original ticket price... and I have a nice hubby, so he fixed it for me.)
I plan on adding frames and photos as the years go by...

If you would like to link up with is post, and comment below with a post about your good finds, I would be thrilled!


  1. I love the Poppy Prints! They look like they all belong together!

  2. I love this! You are my kind of woman! I love finding things at the dollar store & Goodwill. My sister is actually the Goodwill Queen. She loves their 50% off day!
