I love Ohio thrift stores. While other cities have thrift stores, none match the price and selection of my good ole home ones.
After dropping off a massive garbage bag full of old clothes, I picked through the local Goodwill and Salvation Army. Some of today’s great buys:
Camel cowboy-style boots. Literally never worn. Total leather upper, rubber sole, made in Brazil. $3.95.
Wool and acrylic sweaters, $2.00 and $3.00.
I’m big into sweaters and boots, especially in light of my journey to England where the temperature is usually (always) a pleasant fall temperature.
Makes me more excited to hop the pond!
Speaking of ‘cheapness’ and ‘Ohio’ (those two words are quite synonymous if you live in the country-land of Ohio), a tiny little discount grocery mart just opened in my little town. When I say little town, I do mean little.
The only stores we’ve had in this town that have lasted more than a few years include a pizza place, a tiny restaurant, another pizza place, a gas station, laundromat and beer drive-thru. Yes, I said beer drive-thru.
We are infinitely classy. Anyhow! This discount grocery mart had Bob’s Mill products for UNBELIEVABLE prices. Oh, and Larabars, and gluten free goodies! I was in shock. Shell-shock. I had to be dragged out of the store, but not after I made some key purchases:
Bob’s Mill Ground Flaxseed: $1.00
12oz of Chia Seeds: $1.25
No Pudge Brownie Mix: $0.25
4 Larabars: $1.00
For those of you who also buy these types of groceries, you’ll know the absolute elation and you’ll undoubtedly share in my shell-shock.
I’m going to be so spoiled when I move to England and the exchange rate kicks me in the face. Ah well, until then – HELLO discount grocery!
Oh, and a shameless plug (if you’re interested in disability awareness, Paralympics, etc): http://gatescambridge.wordpress.com/2012/08/20/celebrating-sport-and-remarkable-people/
