As attached as I am to my phone, I still have a difficult time using it as my personal notebook or calendar. When I have an idea or an important date, I will always jot it down on a piece of paper or in my paper calendar. I guess I just still like writing things down, makes it feel more concrete. The only problem is that sometimes I lose the paper I write on. Or my daughter draws all over it with pen, crinkles it up and tosses it.
So, as we’re working on our house, I am constantly jotting down mini “thrift lists” on scratch pieces of paper, losing it, then forgetting what I wanted in the first place. In order to keep my ideas in one place and make it a little more fun, I’m going to start posting a thrift list. Each time I get or need a new item, I can update the list as I go. Sounds fun, eh?
Here’s my list so far:
Vintage wooden milk crates for storing movies and books on our wall
Vintage Children’s Dresser. Photo credit is unknown
Bar Cart – for storing our laptops and printer. Because that’s how much we entertain
DIY Bar Cart tutorial on Shanty 2 Chic
Vintage posters – like this one from Cult of Weird
Stay thrifty, my friends
