My goal was to start my web site in 2014 come Hell or High Water.
I did it!
What’s the expression? “In for a Penny in for a Pound”. Well that’s me!
Taking a step back, welcome to
A little about Me:
I have been married for 30 years.
I am the mother of three grown boys, who could really care less about fashion or decorating.
I work part-time as a personal assistant for a wonderful woman.
I am an avid tennis player.
I love to walk and swim.
I have set a personal goal to lose 100 pounds. I am holding steady around 80 pounds give or take 5-8 pounds.
My passion for Goodwill and Salvation Army started because of this. As I lost weight, I would pack up my too big clothes and head to the local drop off centers of these organizations.
I was giving away beautiful clothes, hardly worn, some with the tags still on. One day it dawned on me. I had just dropped off a bag of clothes with jeans from Talbots that were well over $80.00. I had worn these for less than a month. I was annoyed!
I turned around and headed into the store. JACKPOT!!!!
Everything and anything you could possibly want. I was sold and a bit addicted. Granted you need to search through the racks for the DIAMOND, but usually one can be found at a ridiculous low price.
While browsing through the clothes one day, I noticed the furniture. Before I knew it my house was being transformed. Tables, Chairs, couch, lamps, rugs. You name it, I have gotten a great deal on it. Anything can be steamed cleaned or refinished. Compared to retail it’s a steal.
Both Goodwill and Salvation Army feature a color of the week. This means any item marked with that color sticker is 1/2 price. The deals are unbelievable, and Salvation Army delivers. How great is that!!!!
This is THE DISCARDED DIAMOND Headquarters, formerly my older sons bedroom. I thought you would enjoy seeing it. I practice what I preach.
Furnished with Kicked to the Curb items, Craig s List, Goodwill, Salvation Army buys and Hand me Downs.
RE-CYCLE, RE-PURPOSE, REUSE.
It’s worth it!
OMG I love That
Sometimes I see something and I just know I have to have it. This Liz Claiborne red leather coat is one of those. Found at Goodwill while visiting my sister, purchased for $5.00. I wear it all the time.
With it, leopard print cashmere sweater, Salvation Army $3.00. Brown suede boots, $7.00 and black suitcase bag, $ 5.00 . My own pants.
