Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Thrifty Thursday FOR REAL!!

.

Welcome to my contribution
To Leigh's "Thrifty Thursday" Party.


For those of you who aren't regulars on my blog
(Why AREN'T you regulars on my blog, btw???)
Hubby and I are currently in Florida.


Yesterday we returned to Tin City
Because I just really wasn't finished
Shopping there yet!!!


While in there, I saw this display


In case you can't tell what they are,
Come in a little closer
(Sorry this is blurry - - - not sure what I did wrong)

Sandals NEARLY IDENTICAL to mine,
Only THESE had a price tag of $13.99


And I only paid $3 for mine
At that very upscale and trendy shoppe
Called DOLLAR GENERAL!!!!!

I buy a pair of flip flops from Dollar General every year! They have some really cute styles.

Yes ma'am, that was a Thrifty find!!

Sherry said...

There you go! You're a savvy shopper!

Lazy Mom Leslie said...

You are making me want to head on over to my Dollar store right now! Don't you love it when you see something that you have already purchased and it's way more expensive than what you paid?!!

Girls - - - I got those at the end of the season LAST season, don't know if they have them this year or not.

Looks like the corporate greed is still thriving in SW Florida!!! Keetha, I love those flip flops on you and what a bargain...$3. Good girl!!!!

only keetha

Keri said...

Every time I see them I wish I would have been with you at Dollar General so I could have my OWN $3 pair!!!

linda said...

They're adorable...and for only $3! Now that was a bargain!

KBeau said...

I know that made you smile to find out what a bargain you already had.

I mailed your Pay It Forward surprise today.

Erin said...

You DID NOT find those at Dollar General! They're too cute! I was way impressed with the $13.99 price tag, but $3? Awesome!

Martin LaBar said...

In case you didn't know it, Liberty has two Dollar stores now -- a Family Dollar and a Dollar General.

Cass @ That Old House said...

Hey Tootsie -- I am back again to say thanks for visiting -- and to say no to putting those lacy coasters on the wall... not unless I can manage to get ALL the stray fuzz off them. They are so pretty, like lace, but they are made of some sort of oddball material that sucks up fuzzies and stray dog hairs like -- well, some sort of sucking-up thing.
Ick.

And I am SO proud of Annie... This grad program at Rutgers only accepts 2 or 3 students a year, so ... yeah, I'm a proud mommy. But then, we're always proud mommies, aren't we? (It's cause we're such GOOD mommies and raised such good kids right? Right? Tell me I'm right!!)

Have a lovely weekend!
Cass

Keetha said...

Cass - Oh, that's sad about the coasters. I have TWO pair of pants like that, which makes me HATE to wear them and I thought they were SUCH a good idea at the time.

Oh you bet your sweet bippy you should be PROUD OF THAT GIRL!!!!

Sheryl said...

Keetha, I added the picture of your cute sandals (and feet!) on my blog today.

DEAR KEETHA
PUL--LEEZ.....SANDALS THAT LOOK LIKE THAT FOR $3.00 AND YOU DID NOT SEE ERNEST HEMMINGWAY AT LUNCH....WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TOO...LOL

I CANNOT IMAGINE HAVING THAT VIEW TO LOOK AT ANY TIME I WANTED....HEAVEN OR A LITTLE SAMPLING OF IT.
I STOPPED BY TO WISH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY A HAPPY EASTER AND FOUND OUT I HAD TO TRAVEL TO FLORIDA TO DO IT.
BLESSINGS KEETHA
