When I say discounted, I don't mean something that is marked up and then the price is dropped down so I feel like I'm saving money. I mean real sales or discounts that actually save me thousands of dollars a year.
Here are the things I've bought recently:
Table and Lamp
Table $17.50 at an estate auction.
Lamp $40 at T.J. Maxx. Retail price $75.
I've never been to an estate auction before but I highly recommend it. This auction had tons of old antiques, and they were going for dirt cheap. (My friend got a Victor Victrola phonograph worth several hundred dollars for only $2! And it WORKS!!!) I wouldn't call this table an "antique" since I believe it was built in the 30's or 40's. It's still a beautiful piece, and I really like it. I know you can't tell from the picture, but it has a magazine/newspaper holder under the table.
Paid $7 for it at Goodwill.
Paid just $2.50 for each costume, new in package.
(In case you can't tell one is a Puffer Fish, the other is a Submarine)
Briefcase, paid $14.99 at goodwill. New with tags. Retail $59.99
These shoes retail for between $50 and $60, I got them for $3.99!
I also got a multi-line business phone new in the box for $5.99. (The tag was still attached and it cost $54 at Office Depot.) Sorry, too lazy to take a picture of this! :)
What about you? Any good deals this week?
