#ThriftyThursday: Bon Appétit!

#ThriftyThursday: Clean eating is not as easy as it seems. To con myself into settling for a salad for dinner, I purchased this lavender pottery bowl at the Fern Creek store (Louisville).

The bowl itself is beautiful; the sheen and detailed roping add to the bowl’s quality. When I lifted the bowl off the store’s shelf, I knew that this was a thrifty find I could not pass up. A stone

bowl like mine would retail for nearly $40. Beyond its color, design, and sturdiness, I purchased a real pottery bowl for $1.99 that motivates me to eat green.

The kitchen is waiting for me! In less than a month, I will be moving into my very own apartment. This multi-purposeful bowl will be put to good use. Visit your local Goodwill store to shop their home goods selection.
