Nifty Thrifty Tuesday

It's Tuesday and besides Tuesday Trivia Tie-in, we get to celebrate:

Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays
at Coastal Charm

Now, my Tuesday tie today was definitely a thrifty find, you can read all about it here, but I also wanted to share another Nifty Thrifty purchase I made this week.

What's more thrifty than the dollar store? That's right, the clearance bin at the dollar store.

On a recent visit to the dollar store, I found a whole bin filled with things like this that were marked 25 cents.

This bucket had a broken handle, but since I just plan on using it for a planter, it doesn't need a handle anyway.

And guess what I found in the bottom of the bin?

A whole bunch of seeds!

A quarter is almost always a good deal!

Make sure and stop by Coastal Charm, to say "HI" to Linda, and check out all the other Nifty Thrifty posts.

  1. I am ready to start some seeds!! Great thrifty finds.

  2. You can't beat a quarter!! Those seed packets would look great in a frame.

  3. 25 cents?????? Oh I like Jane's idea!!!!

  4. Great find! Last year I bought a seed spreader at a garage sale and the owner threw in a bag of grass seed and fertilizer. Much better deal than I expected!

  5. Now you can't go wrong with spending only .25 cents...great finds Troy! Happy to see you at NTT:)
