Tight Wad Tips! LINK UP!

Here is my shopping trip last night at Smiths.  I spent about $5.  Not very impressive I know, but here are my tips:

Buy SOBE's for .24 each using BOGO FREE printable.
(prints more than twice - use back button)
You need to buy 8 to get this price (I did--one is missing from the picture :)

Hefty OneZip bags are now .50 each with $1/2 printable!!

Buy coconut so you can make the best granola EVER!  I can't make it fast enough!

Did you find a great deal??
Find a frugal recipe??
Have a great shopping trip??
Make a cheap necklace??
ANYTHING of a Tight Wad Nature!!

Link up so we can all learn from eachother.  I will put this up every Saturday.
Thanks in advance!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
