10 Things Thrifty People Never Buy New

Saving money is a way of life for thrifty folks. So much so that there are certain items we NEVER buy new! These 10 things that thrifty people never buy new will have you saving money over and over again!

10 Things Thrifty People Never Buy New

 

The other day I talked about things thrifty people reuse to save money, but that got me thinking…there are A LOT of things that I just flat out refuse to buy new too! Why? Because why waste my money, why cause more trash in landfills, why ignore a perfectly good deal on an awesome item just to claim it was new? My honest answer? I can’t!  I really, really just can’t justify it for a lot of things! Do you buy new?

 

Cars - Ask just about any money smart millionaire and you’ll find that a lot of them drive used cars. The math behind it is simple. 1. new cars are really, really overpriced and 2. the value of your car drops significantly as soon as you drive it off of the lot. Instead of buying new? Check out a good used car. Personally, we drive a 2010 Honda Accord. We bought it used in 2012 and have never regretted it.

Kids clothes - Most thrifty people don’t buy new kids clothes very often. I know that I personally only buy my Emma one or two new outfits each year. For me, it doesn’t make sense. Kids grow so fast that if you bought all new clothing for your kids? You’d be spending a ton of cash every year. Instead, buy used (and/or shop ONLY clearance sales) and save yourself big.

Furniture - Have you priced NEW furniture lately? Seriously. The markup is almost as bad as with a new car. Instead of buying new, find a good, quality used piece and save yourself quite a bit!  Stay away from used mattresses though unless you personally know that the person you’re getting it from is bug free. Bedbugs are too hard to get rid of to risk it for a few dollars of savings.

Jewelry - Why would someone pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for jewelry when you can buy a quality used piece for A LOT less? Case in point? My wedding set? We picked it up at a pawn shop for more than 80% off what the exact same set cost new.

Books - I seriously have not purchased a new book in a very, VERY long time. There’s really no need to with stores like Half Priced Books, yard sales and the thousands of free kindle books that are available. We do buy 2-3 new books a year for Emma every Christmas, but for the most part, that is the exception.

Home decor – Yard sales, thrift shops, and the many, many DIY projects and crafts you can find mean that there is VERY little reason for anyone to ever buy home decor new. Instead, take the money that you would have spent on new, hit the used sales and buy some craft supplies. In the end, you’ll still have awesome home decor AND money left in your pocket!



Video Games and Consoles – Hit up your local Gamestop and grab the games that you want for a lot less than you’ll pay retail. Even newer systems can usually be found for a lot less than what they would run you if you paid retail. If you use a reputable store, you’ll have no worries about getting a bad product that won’t work since all of the stores check and re-check their inventory.

Homeschool supplies - This one comes with a little bit of leeway, but for the most part? Homeschool supplies can be bought used. Things like videos, books for reading assignments and in some cases, even curriculum can all be bought used to save you big money. If you aren’t sure where to start, check your local homeschool co-op or search Facebook for homeschool supplies buy sell and trade groups.

Canning supplies - Have you priced canning jars lately? Holy smokes they can be expensive! Of course, you’ll want to buy your lids new, but things like jars, tools and bands can all be bought used to save some cash. Before you buy them though, just be sure to check for any cracks in the glass, rust or any other defects that would make them unsafe. Also be sure you look for things like the actual canners and even dehydrators. I picked up my dehydrator for $5.00 at a yard sale and it works perfectly.

Dinnerware - I have never seen the point of paying retail prices for new dishes. Maybe that’s because in my house they get broken easily, but even if they don’t get broken at your house? I’d be willing to bet you can buy the same exact set of dishes for a lot cheaper than you would pay new. Don’t believe me? This past summer, my mother in law sold a brand new, never opened set of Better Homes & Gardens dishes for $15.00. That exact set would have cost someone over $50.00 new. If you can’t find an entire set for a good price, consider going eclectic in your designs and doing a vintage mix or match. You’ll have awesome dishes for pennies on the dollar compared to what you’d pay new.

3 Bubbly Cocktails for New Years Eve!

New Years Eve is just around the corner! Whether you're throwing a party or just relaxing at home, these 3 bubbly cocktails for New Years Eve will help you ring in the new year in style!

3 Bubbly Cocktails for New Years Eve!

Whoo hoo! New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and the champagne and sparkling wine are already chilling for their big night. The only difference in the two is that Champagne is made in the Champagne region of France and sparkling wine is made everywhere else in the world. If you splurge and have a great bottle of sparkling wine, there is no need to make it into a bubby cocktail. If you opt for a less expensive bottle and want to make a signature drink for the night and have a little festivity in a glass, having a few different bubbly cocktails is just the answer.

An easy one is the BlackBerry Bubbly that starts with a Brut Champagne or Sparkling Wine. Brut is a dry champagne and pairs well with the blackberries. Fill up your champagne flutes to the top with the blackberries and pour in the sparkling wine. Once the bubbles have gone away, pour in more and let it sit for a few minutes so that the fruit marries with the wine. As your guests eat their champagne soaked berries, add more of each. This is a really easy bubbly cocktail and a great light refreshing taste.

Grab your favorite champagne flute and toss raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries into the bottom of the glass and using either a muddler or a spoon, smash all the fruit into it is in a smoothie-like state. Alternatively you can put all the fruit in a blender and have it ready to go for the party. There should be at least an inch of fruit at the bottom of the glass and then add in the champagne. The fruit will mix very well with the champagne and you can add more bubbly throughout the night. This bubbly cocktail can be made with either Brut or Spumante (sweet) sparkling wine.

If you want a bubbly champagne to wow the crowd, you can’t go wrong with St. Germaine Bubbly Cocktail. Add 2 ounces of St. Germaine to 4 ounces of Champagne and fill the rest of the flute with soda water.  You can accent this with a lemon twist or a strawberry on the glass. This cocktail goes down oh so easy, and is a definite crowd pleaser. It can also be served over ice in a high ball glass and is one of my favorite signature bubbly drinks.

Enjoy New Year’s Eve with any or all of these Bubbly Cocktails. A good thing to remember is that if you are using overripe fruit that you will have more sugar released from the berries and the drink will be sweeter. If you are looking for a tarter taste, then use fruit that is just begun to ripen. I do this with the Blackberry Bubbly as I love the tart taste mixed with the dry brut champagne.

Get Out of the Kitchen and On the Couch With The Family with Market Street! #MarketStreetTX

MS_logo_stacked

 

 

 

How many of you will be cooking Christmas dinner this year? I’m not! I know that I should feel sorta bad for that, but let me be honest here; I don’t. Not in one tiny, little bit. This year? Our Christmas dinner will be cooked and ready to go for me at Market Street! Why? Because after slaving away for Thanksgiving dinner and a final budget blown? I am more than happy to outsource our Christmas meal!

Market Street offers several different selections for your holiday dinner. There’s something to please everyone! From roasted turkey to sweet sliced ham, you’re sure to find what you need to fit the tastes of everyone around the table. Our family will be going with the roasted turkey dinner. It comes with a 10-12lb turkey, gravy, cranberry relish, cornbread dressing and more! Its the perfect dinner for us and guess what? I won’t be spending anymore out of pocket really than I would be if I made it myself! (Seriously, I paid over $25.00 for my Thanksgiving turkey alone)

Its super simple to order too! Just head over to the Market Street catering page and click on “holiday dinners” at the top. Choose the dinner of your choice and click on “view details.” Add it to your cart and then click the blue “view cart” button.Log in and finish your order! Bam! Holiday dinner taken care of in just 5 minutes! When your order is ready, just slide on over to the your local store and pick it up! Easy peasy!

Some of you might be questioning why I’m doing Christmas this way this year. Its like this…I could spend 3 days in the kitchen baking and cooking those things myself. I could spend $25 on another turkey plus the cost of all the sides. I could also let Market Street cook my meal and have a meal that is every bit as tasty while I get to actually enjoy the holiday with my family.

Its a no-brainer for me! I would rather spend that time with my daughter and husband. Family time is so precious to us these days and I soak up all that I can get, when I can get it.

 

Want to check out Market Street for your own holiday dinner? Head over to the catering page on the Market Street website! Which one do you think looks the tastiest?

 

This post is sponsored by Market Street, however, all opinions are my own and are 100% truthful. You can read more about this in my disclosure policy.

Cheesy-Peasy Breakfast Pizza Recipe!

Get rid of the cereal bowl and bake up this Cheesy-Peasy Breakfast pizza! Its perfect anytime of the day!
When I lived in Iowa for a time, we had a frozen pizza brand available to us that had an awesome breakfast pizza option. Now, I’m not one for frozen pizzas most of the time since I prefer my own, however this one? Holy smokes it was good! So over the years since I moved from there, I’ve really missed that frozen pizza…lol. Lucky for me? Its super easy to make at home by myself! We actually like to use it for a quick breakfast at dinner night too sometimes! The best part about this recipe? It freezes VERY well!

 

You will need:

  • (1) partially baked pizza crust
  • bacon, fried and diced (or rip it into larger pieces like we do)
  • sausage, crumbled and fried
  • scrambled eggs
  • Cheddar cheese sauce
  • shredded cheddar or colby -jack cheese
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • any other toppings you may want

 

Notice I didn’t put any amounts with the ingredients? There’s a reason for that. Some people want more of one topping than others and just like any pizza, this one is 100% yours so add as much or as little of a topping as you’d like.

 

To start, partially bake your pizza crust (don’t bake all of the way, only about half of the required baking time), fry and dice your bacon, scramble the eggs and crumble and brown your sausage. Drain the bacon and sausage very well because if not, you’ll have a greasy pizza. You’ll also want to make up your cheddar cheese sauce too. You can use any cheddar sauce that you want. I typically use SoutherEastern Mills Cheddar Cheese sauce mix just because its really quick and easy to mix up and honestly? The rest of this recipe takes time so anything I can add that is quick? I’m all for it.

 

breakfast-pizza-recipe-process

 

Once you’ve got your prep work done, spread the cheddar cheese sauce onto the crust.

 

breakfast-pizza-2

 

Next, spread the scrambled eggs out in an even layer across the pizza.

 

breakfast-pizza-3

Sorry for the blurry pic. Not sure what happened but hey! Blurry breakfast pizza!

Now, layer the sausage in an even layer. Blurry sausage! Yay!



breakfast-pizza-4

 

Toss your bacon pieces on top in an even layer.

breakfast-pizza-5
Toss the cheddar (or colby-jack..that’s what we use) on. Go on, don’t be shy. Cheese that baby all up!

 

breakfast-pizza-6

 

Now? Add some more cheese! Add the mozzarella on top in a thinner layer. Like I said, don’t be shy with the cheese…cheese is goooood. :)

breakfast-pizza-7
Bake your ooey gooey, cheesy-pleasy pizza at 350 until the cheese is fully melted and the crust if finished baking. Let sit for a few minutes and serve hot. To freeze, just cut into slices and store in Ziploc bags. When you’re ready to re-heat, pop one in the microwave for 60 seconds or so and enjoy!
