Thrifty Find: Yellow Table

Yesterday after a trip to the dentist, I ran in Goodwill, because well, it's right across the street. I just can't help myself sometimes.

Anyhow. Out on the sidewalk was this eye catcher.

I like the detail and with some little legs added cute!  Sure, you might be thinking "YELLOW?!"  but let me enlighten you...

I'm loving yellow more and's cheery and unexpected, but if you still don't care for yellow, you could always grab a paint brush and change it to something you do like!

After all, it was only....TEN dollars!

I did not buy it.  No room in my little car and I'm trying to limit my purchasing.... Ugh. :(

Linking up to Rhoda's July Thrifty Treasures on Southern Hospitality- check out more great finds!

Half Price Tickets to All Shook Up at the Riverside Theater in Fredericskburg

Need an idea for a night out?

From HomeRun:

Grab half price tickets to All Shook Up at the Riverside Dinner Theater in Fredericksburg!  Pay only $29 per ticket for dinner and the show (a $58 value). 

Unlike most dinner theaters, they offer a choice of 5 entrees (including Apricot Chipotle Chicken, and Citrus Herb Tilapia) to pick from complemented by a dinner salad to start, rather than a trip to the buffet. 

In All Shook Up, the ever-popular songs of Elvis Presley are showcased as a 1950s Midwestern young girl's dream of adventure and an unexpected visit by a leather-jacketed, motorcycle-riding, guitar-playing drifter help a "straight-laced" small town discover the magic of romance and the power of rock and roll. The story line has several "Shakespearean-play" twists and turns of mistaken identity, and revolves around 24 featured Elvis hits.

  • All Shook Up runs Wednesdays-Sundays until September 11  
  • One you purchase your tickets and choose your show, make sure to call the box office to reserve your spots since shows tend to sell out:  (540) 370-4300
  • Limit 6 vouchers per customer per redemption
  • Cannot be combined with any other offers or promotions
  • Tax and gratuity not included

New Feature: Thrifty Finds!

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Mr Daily Deals and I recently bought a house and have been doing a lot of cleaning, painting, and thrifting lately.  Since the hubby and I bought our first house almost 8 years ago, we've been big fans of yard sales and thrift stores and have been able to find some really great deals.  Thus, I shall start a new feature on my thrifty finds and ideas to share with you all!

One of the stores we've been frequenting is our local Habitat ReStore.  They have all kinds of donated items for your house from lighting to appliances, cabinets, doors, sinks and paint.  Sure, a lot of it might be outdated, but every now and then, you find something great!  Plus, the money goes back to Habitat for Humanity to help others in need!

Here is my handy hubby taking down the old, ugly and very dirty ceiling fan...

And here is the hubby and my dear dad hanging the new light, an Encompass light (online for $372) found at Habitat for (shh!) only $10.  I love it!  Even my dad was impressed with the quality :)

We also grabbed a door for our hall closet ($10), a porcelain white kitchen sink ($30), a Kenmore double oven ($100) and found a great deal on some poly we needed to redo our floors ($10 for a 2.5 gallon bucket, saw it for $78 at Lowes).  

Have you found any great deals lately?
