Thrift Score

I have been trying to clear out extra clutter in the house again, so naturally I felt the need to go to the thrift store with my spare time to bring in more stuff. Doh!

I found good stuff, if that counts for anything 🙂

First up is a Magnet Kit with a book and all the stuff you need to do different experiments. Of course we had to try it out right away.





There was also a new Lego board game with pieces and lots of cards that have models for you to build. We already had one set of these which the kids love, but these were different so I picked them up. As a game I didn’t think it worked so well- too much taking bricks from other players, too long, blah. As an expansion set for toys we like- it is great.


A new solitare game with boats called “Stormy Seas”. It works kinda like Rush Hour but you can slide the “water” pieces around as well as the boats. It had all the parts and all the cards!



A new construction set with wooden pieces and plastic bolts, screw, and more. It works with a similar set we already had.


Three of the pieces work with Lego blocks too! My daughter found one that was a ruler as well 🙂



A new boardgame called “Money Bags”. It is a counting coins game. Basically you move around the board by rolling a die. When you land on a space, you can earn money for yourself or for the “money bag” based on a spinner. It can land on “no nickles”, “no dimes”, “no quarters”, or “money bag”. You then get paid if you can count out the amount without using the forbidden coins. The “money bag” can be won on special spaces. “Coin exchange” spaces allow you to exchange smaller coins for larger coins or bills. If you can do it, you get an extra dime for the effort. Most money at the end wins. Both kids liked this game and we all came in within 5 cents of each other.


I also found a whole plastic bag full of crochet brochures and booklets. About half of them are worth keeping. Many of them are amigurumi animals 🙂
These are the ones I am keeping:
And last but not least, I got the hardback book “A Hatful of Seuss” which contains 5 full length Dr. Seuss stories.

Price for all the goodies= $15!
Ummm..I love our thrift store!
