Thrifty Finds

My colleagues and I went to the mini-mall near us to eat at a fast food during lunchtime and as we passed by a few stores before going back to the office I saw something I really like to buy but there's no time anymore cause we're nearing past our afternoon break and we are front liners so we have to hurry back. Instead, I went back after office to buy some. It was a good buy and I am just glad as I would like to collect these things.


This cute polka lilac planter with a shape of a watering can has been too cute for me to resist. It costs only P175.00 (about $3.80) and big enough enough to carry a bigger house plant. My only problem now is the houseplant I'm going to put in them, it could be either a cacti or some green plant.

Along with it I bought a smaller planter that looks like a little pale. I was not going to buy it but then it only cost P100.00 ($2.10) so I bought it also.

I was able to buy these two little home planters at Lock and Lock. There are other cute finds there but I'm reserving it for next visit.


While I was waiting for my husband to come fetch me at the mini mall, I looked around and visit Japan Home, there, I was able to find this cute yellow floral plate. Too bad, there's only one piece left but I don't mind. I've still gotten it and for only P88.00 (($1.90).
I've found a teacup and saucer set as well for only P66.00 (about more than $1.00). It has a lovely bird design in it.

Found good cute pieces at low prices. I truly enjoyed. I will have something to bring when I already have my own house, two li'l planters, a plate and a teacup and saucer set. hahaha!
