"Thrift stores Bargains and Pride"

Today was a  good day, Cecil and I got out early today and decided to take a little ride to get some country sites under our belt :o).
Ran across a "Thrift" store and decided to stop in...Well to my surprise ..under the counter were some nasty little quart jars..I started to turn my nose up at them being somewhat of a neat freak! and then quickly decided
" You will be sorry, remember "pride goeth before a fall" so I turned my little fat butt around and took all 12 of them ...plus 2 bigger jars one to hold Sweet Tea (had it's own label, no top , but I have tops) then one with it's top ..all for $6. All went into the dish washer on heavy wash and came out clean as whistles..You have to do a close up to see the large bottles in the bottom rack. I paid less for the dozen than the dozen I got on sale at Walmarts...Hooray for "Thrift stores and Goodwill" And thank goodness my good sense outweighted my pride. Sometimes lessons come in different ways..

You got a great deal, Ginny, and you'll put those to good use too! They were diamonds in the rough, I guess. :-)

They will be once used :o)...If I had run out of jars and hadn't got them I would have been sick! and it would have served me right . Ginny

Good score with the jars! I also loved the pictures of your garden. Did you see the pictures I posted of Kurt working in my garden the other day? LOL.

Deborah, I visited your blog, but the pictures came out too dark for me to view anything. Ginny

Nice score on the jars. I'm always looking for canning jars at garage sales. They sure are getting expensive new.

6512 and growing, usually I pay like 29cents a jar, this time they were a little bit higher 39 cents..but the cheap price of the larger ones made up for it, and it was still a blessing . At one time I never found any...now they are at every turn it seems...I could use some pint size now. Ginny
