Fun Frugal Finds

From Target!  I would have put that in my title, but it would have messed up my alliteration flow.

I had a day off from the day job on Monday so I made a trip to Home Depot and Target {which is, fortunately, in the same shopping center}.  Right through the door, I headed to the little $1.00 area in the front.  I found these great little clipboards ~ on clearance for $.70 each!   The frames were $.98 each and hold a 3 x 5 picture.

In the scrapbook and photo album aisles I found these plastic little photo albums for $1.99 each.  I picked up a few to transform into brag books for when my first grandchild arrives this Summer.  I really only need to change out the removable cardboard inserts in the cover and . . . .

add some pretty little embellishments, which I also found for $3.49 and $1.99!   In this same area I found the rub-ons {$.99}, the “Kiss” glitter word {.99}, and the chipboard alphabet {$.99}.

Even though I don’t have plans for some of these finds, I’m sure I’ll come up with something!

Linking up to Frugalicious Friday at Finding Fabulous.

Great finds! We were in Target a few days ago and I noticed that they had a lot of stuff clearanced in the $1 spot - only I couldn't get to it! It was mobbed! I didn't look in the scrapbook aisle - I'll be sure to next time I go.

Hi Kathy-
I have found that not only the dollar section at Target- but the endcaps on the aisle in every dept always have the best stuff. I have a stash that I bought like you did because it was such a great deal. When ever I do use it, my freinds and family always want to know where I got it - Tar"jay" of course.
