My thrifty finds

Oh yes!
It was August 2008, right before my first child was born.
I was helping a teacher friend of mine getting her 2nd grade class ready for the new school year. 
She was getting rid of stuff she was not using and there was a big pile of "trash" in the middle of the room. 
My eyes saw this 

and the rest is history!

I didn't know what I was going to do with those wire paper baskets. They sat in the garage for a couple of years, then I moved it in our office space to organize office supplies.

Now, since we are still working on finishing up our master bathroom, I needed some baskets to fit in our open shelf...I remembered my thrifty finds and took it in there.

Perfect fit! 

I just love how things work out sometime! For the best!

Total cost $0.00

Stay frugal,

Love those wire bins! Those are so popular right now and look great holding your white towels and tp. You were lucky to spot those. I can't believe someone would throw those away!
