June Thrift Challenge Blog Hop

Hey ya’ll! I have teamed up with several blogger buddies for June’s Thrift Challenge. This month, we have changed up our challenge a bit. The rules are to purchase an item from a thrift store, yard sale, garage sale, estate sale OR revamp/upcycle a piece you already own which no longer works in our home. As always, there is no set budget but we like to keep it as budget friendly as possible.

With the change in rules, I knew immediately what I wanted to do. When my Grandmother passed away, 11 years ago, I was allowed to go through her personal belongings and pick out what I would like to have of hers. One of the items I chose was this red quilt.

Over the years, my own little family used it for picnics, beach trips and nap time and as you can see, it had had it share of wear. I placed it in a box in our attic to save and hopefully one day, repurpose it.

When the challenge rules changed for this month, I literally jumped for joy, at the idea I had to make pillows from the quilt. It was super simple!

I grabbed a pillow cover that I already had and used it as the pattern for my pillows. I cut two pieces of the quilt for each pillow and sewed together, added poly-fil and wa-lah, the pillows were complete! Quick, easy and free! I had all of the supplies on hand for making the quilt pillows. The poly-fil is super budget friendly. You can grab it at Joann Fabric and Craft Store for around $5-$10, depending if its on sale or you use a coupon. You can check out my under IG highlights “DIY Pillows”.

June Clearance Challenge

For this month’s Clearance Challenge, I knew exactly what I was going to use for the challenge. I headed to our local Five Below store before our vacation (check my IG highlights/posts) to grab a few items for our newly renovated pop-up camper. Do y’all know what amazing items they have in this store and all for under five bucks?! Ok, ok, let me show you! I bought a black and cream boho chic rug and a cute little gray fuzzy foot stool for the camper. Both were $5 each!

I also purchased a gray and white plastic outdoor mat for $5. It worked perfectly for our “front porch” area on the outside of the camper.

But, perhaps the best bargain of all was the felt letter board that I found on clearance for $1! It was regularly priced for $5, but when I got to the register, it was on clearance for $1!

See? You really can decorate your home or camper, while being budget friendly. I hope you take a moment to hop on over to each of my friend blog’s and see what these creative ladies have found on clearance. I promise you will not be disappointed!

Lots of summer vacation vibes from our family to yours!

Love, Shae
