Thrifty Things Friday #7

TTF @ Melissa's Antiques

Welcome to the next installment of Thrifty Things Friday!  I actually bought a few things last Sunday, but I have been swamped with so many other things, I just haven't had time to clean them up and photograph them.  However, I made a pretty big purchase last week.  I told you I was selling off a lot of stuff because I had a big purchase on the horizon.  I guess I've been doing well lately, because here's what I was talkin' about:

I bought a new truck: a 2014 Ford Edge.  This is a lot bigger than my old truck (2011 RAV4).  I just needed more room for junk!  Apparently these are really popular right now, especially in this color.  This came from a dealership about 200 miles away.  Luckily, I was still able to deal with someone I knew at my local Ford dealership.  So far I'm loving it.  Really loving the Ford Sync and the satellite radio.  I don't think I've changed it from the Classic Vinyl station yet.  Anyways... let's get on to TTF!

Let me start with the featured post from last week's TTF:

I got a good laugh out of this one!  The lazy girl's guide to estate sales!

  2. Thanks Melissa for Thrifty Things Friday. A pleasure to join in. You car surely holds a great amount of great stuff.

  3. Hanna & I had a Ford Edge as a rental car when we went on vacation the very first year they came out. For the longest time we thought they were called a Hedge. We still call them that. BTW, ours was really fast! Like stupid fast where you are going 90 but feel like you are going 40.


  4. Yeah! Wonderful results from your junkin' sales. Good for you!
