The Very Definition of "Cheaping"

On Saturday we decided to do a pop-in at our local Deseret Industries, or D.I., a local nonprofit thrift store. Stopping by can be either fortuitous or fruitless. In the past we have been able to find a variety of great vintage items, including fur coats, skirts, and dresses that are much cheaper than our local vintage clothing store. Other times we have walked out with nothing. This time we hit a bonanza of vintage children’s books and dishes. We each picked up a dozen of these great glass serving trays.

We plan to use these at showers and parties in lieu of plastic or paper dishes. Not only are they environmentally friendly, but they are also more elegant than the disposable kinds. And the best part? As a nonprofit organization, there is no sales tax at D.I. Yippee!
