Tight Wad Tips! Look what I bought for 50 cents!! LINK UP!


Nice right?  This is way more exciting than bringing home 10 boxes of Kleenex. :)
I was able to do this because there are/were kiosks of Butterfinger $1/2 coupons hanging around Smith's!  So keep an eye out!  Then all you have to do is wait for them to go on sale for 50 cents.

There is also a BOGO FREE coupon in RP 10/3...which is why I paid 50 cents. :)
And NO I did not clean anybody out.  I'm very sensitive to that.  In fact it's funny how many places candy is stashed.

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

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

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!
