Weekend Deals

We went shopping this weekend 
 it amazes how many stores
still have a lot of Christmas items

I went to Michael's
 to use a Christmas gift card
I lucked in and found a lot of items
that were 80% off

I got this candle holder for $3.59

The glitter rick rack was .79 a piece
Bronze tray was 1.99
Ornament 1.00

the following items were .20 a piece

The planter was 1.39
hurricanes 1.39

I have been trying to find something new
for my dining room table
and living room coffee table

I bought 3 of the hurricanes for $ 1.39 a piece = $4.17

The candles I bought at the dollar store = $3

bag of stones $3

bronze tray $ 1.99

Total $12.16

Now the dining room table:

I got the 2 small hurricanes for 2.59 a piece $5.18

1 large hurricane for $ 2.99

the 3 candles I got at Bed Bath and Beyond for $6 (75% off)

Total $14.79

I also go the tablecloth at Kohl's for $5

I started out with an idea
of what I wanted for the tables
and I didn't get anything that resembled
what I thought I wanted!

The dining room table still needs something
but I'm not sure what
I welcome any ideas!

I'm linking up to Thrifty Thursday
