Out With The Old, In With The New

If any of you knew me prior to marriage you may have used the term shopaholic or materialistic to describe myself as a shopper.  

I am proud to say post marriage, I am a changed woman!  

Tyson and a few other friends of mine have opened my eyes to a whole new world.  
Yard Sales
Home Goods
Nordstrom Rack

I love what these options have to offer and how much further my dollar goes. 

Previously the only stores I would even look to buy clothes were from my favorite stores Anthropologie and Nordstrom.  I'm not saying I don't still LOVE these stores, but now I find myself heading straight to the sales rack. 

Purchasing a new house hasn't left much in the decorating department.  When I was younger I imagined having my house covered top to bottom in Pottery Barn decor, however that is not the case.  It is so much more fun to buy cheap things and make them my own.  I have found myself at yard sales and searching the net on Craigslist.  There are some real gems out there.  
This desk was found on Craigslist for $20.
It still needs to be painted, but I love it!

This mirror was found at a Garage Sale yesterday for $3.
It was a hideous brassy color so Tyson and I spray painted it Ivory. 

It has taken longer to decorate, but I am thoroughly enjoying myself and so is Tyson's wallet!
I have learned a valuable lesson to "Never Say Never" (thanks JB)
