My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I thought it would be fun to tell you about my latest adventures. Ready ? Set? Let’s go !!!

My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places

On Saturday my mom and I went to a local pumpkin patch. We went to this location last year and I really like it. It’s on the smaller side and that’s one of the things I like about it. Also the crowds are pretty low compared to some of the bigger pumpkin patches I’ve been too. I enjoyed taking pictures in this pumpkin patch . I also found the perfect pumpkins to decorate. After the pumpkin patch we went to the Dollar Tree. I haven’t been to this location in a while but I’m really glad that I went because I finally got the glow in the dark beads I’ve been wanting! After that we went to Michaels to buy supplies to decorate our pumpkins with. While we were in Michaels I spent a good amount of time looking at the Christmas stuff. I know it’s October but I can’t wait for Christmas time to begin. I got blue and green paint for my pumpkins I also got a cute craft kit and a few other fun things . In my next post I’ll talk about decorating my pumpkins! Thanks for reading!

Savers at night

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Saturday I had a night time thrift shopping adventure. I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you so here we go!

I had a long day of work on Saturday but I was in the mood to go thrift shopping. I’m working at different location now and it’s pretty close to the Savers that I go to. What I love most about that Savers location is the books! My mom and I love finding fun books to read. I got off work a half an hour before Savers closed but I figured that would be just enough time to find some good books! As soon as I was off work I hurried to get my stuff and get out the parking lot where my mom was waiting for me. It was a short drive and we parked quickly. As soon as we started walking towards the store someone in the parking lot told me to hurry. I thought it was funny. When we walked in the store an employee told us we had 20 minutes. That’s was good enough for me. On our way back to the book section I saw this beautiful carousel toy . I told my mom to go ahead while I took a look at it. It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted it. I met my mom over in the book section and we got right to work finding books we wanted. After finding some books I wanted. I went to the toy section. I got a bag of 101 Dalmatians toys and a My Little Pony Equestria Girls doll. When I returned to the book section my mom had found some more books. I took a look at the books again and I found even more books that looked good. I even found some books that I’ve been wanting to read. While in the book section we were told that the store was closed and that it was time to get in line. I was really happy with my finds during this short shopping trip.

Latest Dollar Tree adventure

I already love the Dollar Tree and latley I have been watching videos on YouTube of people shopping at the Dollar Tree. When I watch thoes videos they make me want to go to the Dollar Tree as soon as possible. Earlier this month when Amy and I were hanging out we took a trip to the Dollar Tree and I’m very glad we did. I was so happy to see that they had the TY beanie boos blind boxes. I got five of them. My other favorite finds from this trip include a My Little Pony pencil case,a notebook that says my bucket list on the cover, and gummy bear stickers.

Summer shopping adventure 2020

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Friday and Saturday I went shopping to some of my favorite places. Without delay let’s start with Friday. On Friday I went to a large Dollar Tree store. This location is one of my favorites. I found a lot of items when it came to arts and crafts including a wooden elephant, beads, crayons, stickers ,a My Little Pony art kit and more. Some of my other favorite finds from the Dollar Tree were a pair of palm tree flip flops, some blind bag toys, and a flower pen. The next day I went shopping at the mall. I went to a few different stores including Claire’s and Old Navy. At Claire’s I was able find some items on sale that I liked such as a set of three heart earrings and a set of two necklaces. I also got a new hair bow even though it was not on sale. Some other highlights from my mall trip include a pair of watermelon flip flops from Old Navy , a Crayola coloring book from Target and hair brush from Daiso. I ended my Shopping adventure with coffee and a soft pretzel from the food court! I hope all of you had a great weekend !

To start our day we went to Target I was in much need of bug spray and sunscreen but of course I stopped at the dollar section first. There were new items it the dollar section since I had last been there. I was excited to see these big squishy toys for three dollars each. I chose the big squishy sun.  I also got a pair of socks and a bird shaped toy that shoots a ball from it’s nose. After Target we went to the Dollar Tree .

She found what she needed there and saved money ! I found some goodies as well . I got a glittery sign that says ” Hello summer ” two craft kits and more.

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Recently I did one of my favorite things, Thrift shopping! I didn’t get a lot of stuff but I did get some pretty great things that I can’t wait to tell you about so let’s go!

 

Goodwill Shopping adventure May 2020

One of my main goals for this shopping trip was to get some more craft kits. I’ve being doing a fair amount of craft kits lately and I don’t want to run out. I found a bundle of a few items that had a pack of fuzzy pencils on top but included two craft kits. One was a wooden airplane kit the other one was a clay art by number kit. Then I found a unicorn wind chime craft kit.  I was also hoping to find some American Girl books and I was excited to find one pretty quickly after I got to the book section. After the books I moved on to clothes where I got two shirts and a dress.It was an overall successful thrift shopping trip!

My top 3 places to buy arts and craft kits.

Hello, my bucket list friends ! It’s pretty obvious that I’m a big fan of arts and crafts kits. The kits I get are usually very simple and made with kids in mind. That is one I like about about them. I like doing projects that are simple and not complicated. If you like simple arts and crafts kits too stay tuned because I’m going to tell you my favorite places to buy them.

 

My top 3 places to buy arts and craft kits.

Dollar Tree – I have found a good amount of arts and craft kits from the Dollar Tree and it’s hard to beat the price. It’s also pretty easy to find some brand name craft kits here such as Crayola or Disney but even the kits that are not from a well known brand have been pretty good overall. The Dollar Tree also has a pretty large selection of arts and craft supplies. If you go looking for arts and craft kits at the Dollar Tree be sure to check out the seasonal section. They usually have seasonal art and crafts kits mixed in with the decorations and other seasonal items.

 

Thrift Stores – It’s not a secret that I’m a fan of thrift stores but what some people may not know is that they can be great places to find arts and craft kits and art supplies in general. I have found some pretty great arts and crafts kits at thrift stores including unopened Melissa and Doug craft kits! You never know what you might find when you go thrift shopping . Next time you go to a thrift store look around for some arts and crafts kits. You never know what you may find !

 

Michaels – One of the best arts and crafts stores I have been in ! I love this places It’s not hard to find craft kits here. I also really like the selection of seasonal craft kits that they have. For some one who loves arts and crafts it’s easy to spend a lot of time in this store!

Dollar Tree and Target hauls

Dollar Tree – I started off the first day of May with a trip to the Dollar Tree. I had to get some poster board for a project but of course that wasn’t all I got. I was very happy with the items I found during this trip. Some of my favorite items are My Little Pony toys , a pair of socks with  pairs of socks on them, a pen with a doughnut on top , and cat stickers. I also got a wooden butterfly. When I get around to painting it I will be sure to post about it! My mom was with me for this trip and she found somethings she needed as well. It was a successful shopping trip for both of us!

 

Target – Yesterday I went to Target with my friend. She has somethings she needed to get there so I came along to see what I could find.  In the Dollar section I found some fun items including summer stickers and toy sloth that you grow. another thing I got was a fun shirt that I can’t wait to wear this summer. I also finally got one of the new style My Little Pony toys! I had a really fun time shopping with my friend. Oh and when I grow the sloth toy I will be sure to post about it !

Thrift shopping is awesome !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! As a lot of you probably know I love thrift shopping and I’ve been doing a good amount of it lately. I thought that it would be a good idea to write about why I love it so much . Here we go !

 

Thrift shopping is awesome !

The first thing that comes to mind when I think about thrift shopping is the excitement. When you walk into a thrift store you never know what you are going to find. Yes, it’s true that there have been sometimes when I have not found anything that I was really excited about on a thrift trip. On the other hand There have been times when I have walked away with lots of treasures ! Lately I’ve have some really good finds such as American Girl books , craft kits, Disney items , and more ! There is something truly special about the feeling you get when you find a really awesome item! The next thing I think about when I think of thrift shopping is the nostalgia of finding items that remind me of my childhood and even finding things that I had years ago. It is also a really awesome feeling when I find one of those nostalgic items. A well know benefit of thrift shopping is saving money! I have found some amazing deals ,I have also found things that I thought were priced on the high side. Overall I have been happy with the prices. If your looking to save money you should consider giving thrift shopping a try. When I go thrift shopping it feels like i’m going on a adventure. I love going thrift shopping with other people. I get excited for them when they find something that they are really excited about.  I can’t wait for my next thrift shopping trip !What are your favorite things about thrift shopping?
