Dollar Tree and mall adventure 6/21

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Friday I went to the Dollar Tree and Saturday I went to the mall. I got some really great items and I can’t wait to tell you more about it so here we go! On Friday after work I went to my favorite Dollar Tree location. I found so many amazing things including confetti Play-Doh,art kits,a Barbie coloring book and My Little pony stickers. I also got a summer themed cup with an attached drinking straw. I’m excited to play with the confetti Play-Doh I hope to do that today. On Saturday I went to the mall with my friend Amy. I went to Claire’s and got a lot of great things including a necklace that has a little jar of donuts on it,and a hair bow, hair scrunchies,and a bracelet with heart shaped beads. After Claire’s we went to Daiso. This store never fails to have amazingly cute items. Some of my favorite things I got there were stickers, animal shaped erasers,a Mickey mouse towel,and a Disney princess pencil sharpener. Also Amy and I got matching towels that have polar bears on them. After that I went to Build a Bear workshop. They were low on stock so they didn’t have any of the bears that I had in mind to build that day. However they did have this adorable pastel colored cat. I named her June Sunshine and bought a summer shirt for her to wear. After getting some lunch at the food court Amy and I went to Old Navy where I found a great pair of leopard print flip flops and Amy found jeans that fair her perfectly. We ended our day with a trip to Target. I got a bath bomb and some cute items from the dollar section of the store. Some of my favorite items that I got in the dollar section were a set of animal shaped rulers and two cute summer themed animal toys. It was a wonderful two days of shopping fun and I can’t wait to do it again next year.

Friday’s Target haul and a Barbie color reveal doll

Hello, My bucket list friends! On Friday I went to the magical land of Target. The main thing I wanted to get there was those glittery bath bombs with the squishy surprises inside. I love those bath bombs so much. I got a glittery bear and a glittery ice cream cone plus two other bath bombs. In the Dollar section I got some super cute Disney rubber ducks and another water toy. I also got two Barbie dolls one of them being a Barbie color reveal doll. The other one has gorgeous multicolored hair in a beautiful rainbow skirt. When I got home I wanted to see what color reveal doll I got. I bought two dolls from that series before but they turned out to be the same doll. I was really hoping that I’d get a different one this time. Luckily I did! She has yellow hair and black and white clothing. I’m so happy to welcome her to my collection. I wonder what I will get next time I’m shopping at Target.

Goodwill, Savers and an amazing find!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m excited to tell you about my latest thrift shopping adventures. Including one item that I’m very happy that I found. On Thursday I went on a quick trip to Goodwill. I I got some great items including a Melissa and Dad craft kit, a Barbie book that still had the stickers in it, and a set of Disney markers that came from the theme parks. I’m excited to use the Melissa and Doug craft kit that I got. I love the wooden heart-shaped beads. On Friday after work I went to Savers. When I walked over to the toy section I saw a large horse toy on the shelf. I wonder if it could be an American girl horse toy because it seemed large enough. I went over and looked at it and sure enough the tag on the leg said American girl. I was so excited! I love finding American Girl products but I was super excited to find this one. I think I’m going to do a photo shoot with my dolls and the horse. My other savers finds include some ’90s Beanie Babies, some Barbie dolls including one with a really awesome hair, a spin art kit, a set of Lisa Frank erasers,and a Christmas plate from the ’70s. I had a lot of fun at Savers and I spent more time there than I thought I did. I wonder what my next big thrift find will be.

Bucket list #294 Go shopping at the Gilroy Outlets

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m super happy to say that yesterday I crossed another item off my bucket list. The last time I went to the outlets,a lot of the stores were closed. However this time the stores I wanted to visit were open.My mom and I started our outlet adventure with the Disney store outlet. I’ve been to the Disney store before but not the outlet. They had good deals on a lot of items including some items from the theme parks. My favorite thing that I got was a mouse ear headband that was summer themed. After that we went to Claire’s. This location had a pretty large clearance section I enjoyed looking through all the items especially the ones on sale. I was able to find some really great accessories and one of the best curly straws I’ve ever seen in my life! After those two stores we went to go visit the California welcomeCenter again. I’ve been here once before and I love looking through all the travel brochures that they have. I had a lot of fun crossing this item off my list and I hope to go back to the Gilroy outlets sometime.

My wonderful and amazing trip to Savers!

Hello,my bucket list friends. Yes,I’m back with another post about thrift shopping. As you can probably tell from the title of this post I’m super excited to tell you all about it. On Sunday I went to Savers with my mom. When I go to Savers I look for books first. I did find some great books on this thrift shopping trip including a ghost writer book, American Girl books and a candy fairy book. Then I went over to the toy section where I got two Barbie dolls, two My Little pony toys and two Beanie Babies. When I was looking in the arts craft section I found two different craft kits. The first one was a paint your own trinket box kit that had not been opened. The other one was a Barbie jewelry box kit from the ’90s. I was super excited to have found it. I don’t usually get clothes when I go to Savers because they tend to be more expensive than other thrift stores. However this time I did find a candy cane printed sweatshirt that was super cute and for a good price. I was super happy about this thrift shopping haul and I still am. The Barbie jewelry box that you could paint was my favorite find from this trip and I’m going to write a blog post about painting it soon. You never know what you will find when you go thrift shopping. I wonder what will bey next favorite find!

My latest thrift shopping fun!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Going thrift shopping has quickly become of my favorite hobbies. I’ve been working on building up my beanie baby collection. I had so many when I was a kid and I wish I would have kept them. Anyways I’m also on the lookout for books from American Girl and Mary-kate and Ashley. I’ve been pretty successful with finding items that I’m interested in adding to my collection. I wanted to share my two latest thrift shopping trips with you. The first one was in Saturday to a local thrift store they have very limited hours so I don’t get to go very much. However I did have some time before my shift on Saturday so I was able to go look for some treasures. I found some Mary-Kate and Ashley books as well as an American girl book. I also found it a bag that had some Beanie Babies in it. Some other finds from that thrift shopping trip were a Barbie doll, some stickers and a bag of hair scrunchies. The next thrift shopping trip I wanted to tell you about took place on Tuesday. I had to get some shirts for my new job but of course I had to look for some fun items to add to my collection as well. I was excited to find two wellie wisher dolls from American Girl they had been well played with and needed some TLC but I was still very excited to have found them. I also found some really awesome ’90s Beanie babies to add to my collection. I was really hoping to find some while I was there and I was not disappointed. I also got a pink basket for Easter as well as some books including a Disney trivia book. What are some fun things that you have found while through shopping?

Starting off February with a trip to Savers

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Tuesday, I had the day off so I decided to go to Savers. When I go to Savers I head right to the book section. However since it was senior discount day there was a pretty long line outside. My mom was with me so we were able to get the discount as well. After waiting in line I went to the book section. During this thrift shopping trip, I got books from some of my favorite series such as American Girl and Candy Fairies. In addition to some great books I found two Barbie dolls to add to my collection, some art kits and a Build a Bear Fluttershy. I’ve been trying to collect all the main My Little Pony Build a Bear toys and now I only have one more left to find. At the end of this thrift trip while my mom was in line to pay I went to look at the shoes. When I was looking at the shoes in my size, I saw a pair that really caught my eye. The shoes were covered in pictures of animals! It was a very successful thrift shopping trip. I was so happy that I found more candy fairies book I’ve been looking for those books for a while! I hope all of you are having a wonderful week.

Hello, my bucket list friends ! On Saturday after work, I decided to go to Savers to see what treasures I could find. My favorite thing to get at Savers is books. Their books are priced really well and they always seem to have a lot of them. When my mom and I got to the store there was a line outside but when we made it in we headed right for the book section. I found nine books this time plus two Barbie dolls and a big bag of beads. My mom also got some books. My favorite thing that I got is a Bennie Baby collector’s book from the 90’s. Overall it was a good thrift shopping trip.
