{Thrifty (and tasty) Friday!}

Yesterday afternoon I stopped by Goodwill for the DOLLAR DEALS! Starting on Thursday each week, several racks go to $1.00 per item! It usually lasts thru Sunday and I try to stop by atleast once a week to see what I can find. Yesterday, they also had all items with a green sticker for half price so I got this cute purple Totes backpack purse for $1.50! It looked like it had very rarely been used and I got it cleaned up good, too!
I also got 14 new shirts for $14!!!
I'm telling you...if you're not a thrift store shopper---you are missing out!
I didn't get pics because I threw them in the washing machine before I thought about it but I got several basic long sleeve Gap crew necks, a couple of cute Gap tank tops, a few american eagle short sleeve t's, and a few shirts for Old Navy, too. I'm thinking someone very stylish and just my size had just made a drop off because they had some cute stuff!
I was so inspired by such great deals that I decided to cook dinner for Travis. I saw these freshly baked whole wheat rolls at the bakery and decided they would be perfect with a bowl of low-fat potato soup.
It was SO EASY TO MAKE! Click HERE for the recipe. It's super low-fat but still tasted just as yummy as any I've ever had. For example, one bowl of O'Charley's potato soup has 280 calories and 17 grams of fat---YIKES! But a BIG bowl of the lowfat kind I made has only 170 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving. And it's filling enough for a complete meal!

The finished product---it was gone in NO TIME!

Wishing you a WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

Love,

Laura
