Self care weekend

Hello, my bucket list friends! My stress level has be high lately so I decided to make this a self care weekend. Today is Sunday and can officially say that I have a sore throat and that I’m feeling pretty out of it. I’m not surprised because there has been something going around at my work. I’m happy to say though that it wasn’t till last night I started to feel off so I did enjoy my Friday night and Saturday. On Friday evening I did one of my favorite things. I took a bubble bath with two bath bombs. The bath bombs I used were Christmas themed and they both had prizes in them. I also printed out some coloring pages from Crayola on Friday. If you’re looking for some great coloring pages to print. I highly recommend going to Crayola’s website. Yesterday, I continued to do some of my favorite things to help me de-stress. I went to a local thrift store to see what I could find. This thrift store has shorter hours then the big name stores but I have been trying to visit this store more often. I bought a few fun things including a Barbie doll and a Build a Bear reindeer plush. I also got a very cute Coca-Cola polar bear plush. While we were in town we also went to Starbucks for coffee. Coffee is one of my favorite drinks. When we got home my mom and I went on a walk. The weather was perfect for one. Later that evening we went to a family members house for game night! That brings us today. I plan to spend today relaxing and writing another one of my favorite things.

Savers in the morning and more adventures

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday was a pretty busy day but it was mostly the fun kind of busy. We ending up leaving the house earlier then we normally would. After we went to Starbucks we got to Savers a little bit before it opened. There were are few people waiting outside already so I decided to join the line. By the time the store opened,there was a pretty long line of people behind us. As soon as we got in the store there were carts waiting for us. I grabbed one and headed to the back of the store where the toys are. I was excited to see that there was so many beanie babies! I ended up getting four bags that had two beanies each. Also on the same wall there was a bag with two Lion King plush toys in it! I love finding 90s Lion King items. I also got the Lion King sound track. One of my other favorite finds from this trip is an American Girl art studio kit. I also got two pairs of jeans and some Disney key chains. It was a successful thrift trip! After that we had some errands to run including Whole Foods and mailing an item that I sold on Poshmark. We went back to the house to get my neighbor’s dog. We had plans to go to a pumpkin patch with Amy but due to traffic that didn’t end up happening. We ended up going to dog park and taking a walk around the park where the dog park is. Last night I listed some more items on Poshmark. I’m getting more into this reselling thing. Thanking for reading!

Weekday Savers trip

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday after work I went to Savers for some evening thrift shopping. I like going to thrift store during the week if I can because it is usually less crowded. On this thrift trip I got two Barbie dolls including one with purple hair, an American Girl craft kit, a Barbie book that still had a necklace included,a Disney World popcorn bucket, and a bag of two beanie babies. I did pretty good in the book department in addition to the Barbie book I mentioned above I got two other Barbie books,some Wish Bone books two American Girl books and a Mary-Kate and Ashley book. I didn’t find any clothes on this thrift trip but I’m happy with the other things I got especially the Disney World popcorn bucket. I was so happy when I saw it on the shelf. This was overall a successful thrift trip.

Thanks for reading and Rock On- Christina Epperly

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.

Another Goodwill adventure

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday I visited one of my favorite places,the Goodwill! Every other Thursday I go with my dad to drop off food at our church. The food is used to help feed the homeless. While my dad gets the food at the store I like to go to the Goodwill nextdoor and see what I can find. On this shopping trip the first thing I found was a bag of horse toys .They were so cute, I just had to take them home. My other finds were a Disney purse, a Build a Bear cat, a Barbie doll still in the box and a snow globe. I’m happy with my finds. What have you found at thrift stores lately?

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.
