Collective Thrift Haul ft. Second Hand September

Hey muffins! If you weren't aware, this month was Second Hand September! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I have talked about thrifting a lot here on Life of an Earth Muffin, so in honor of this month coming to an end I wanted to share my most recent thrifted purchases. Let's jump right into the haul!

*Dining Room Table & Chairs: Facebook Marketplace, $45

I recently shared my tips and tricks for successfully shopping on Facebook Marketplace... And this is one of the best things I have scored! This table and chairs set was super cheap, and it is still in great condition - perfect for a grad school apartment!

*Binder: Local thrift store, $1

I will be writing a whole post this week on "how to zero waste your school supplies", and one of my suggestions is to check out your local thrift stores! I am about to start studying for my CPA exams and wanted a binder to store all of my notes as I work through the Becker materials. ๐Ÿค“ This binder was brand new, and it is absolutely perfect for what I was looking for!

*Set of 19 pans: Facebook Marketplace, $5

That's right - 19 PANS! I have been on the hunt for a muffin tin, cake pan, and bread pan so when I saw someone selling all of them (plus 16 other assorted pans!) I just had to make the purchase. While I found some other good pans in the bunch (like a pizza pan and a brownie pan), I will be donating the others that I don't want to my local thrift shop so that they can get used in another kitchen. ๐Ÿง

*Ann Taylor Black flared skirt: Salvation Army, $1.50

This is for my Halloween costume... And it is perfect! It fits like a pencil skirt but flares out a bit more at the knees, so I will definitely be able to wear it to work after I use it as a costume.

*Red fabric: Local thrift shop, $0.75

I turned some of this fabric into a bow... Any guesses on what I am going to be for Halloween?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

*New York and Company White Button Up: Salvation Army, $4.99

Again, this is for my Halloween costume, but I will get a ton of use out of it when I start working full time. ๐Ÿ˜€

*2 Pumpkin Napkins: Local thrift store, $0.50 each

One of the easiest things to do on a journey towards zero waste is refuse single use napkins. I have slowly been building a collection of napkins from ones my parents no longer want, but I thought it was time to throw in some fall cheer to the mix. ๐ŸŽƒ

*Debbie Mumm Halloween Pillow: Local thrift store, $4.50

My apartment has no Halloween decor right now, so I figured this would be an easy way to add some Halloween spirit to the living room. Frank looks SO cute on the futon. ๐Ÿ˜

  1. You got some lovely items here! I love checking out Facebook Marketplace for second hand goods, especially furniture. You got a great bargain with that dining room table. I love those pumpkin napkins! ๐Ÿ˜ This is something I need to buy more of, but I'm currently using up my paper ones first.

    1. I think the napkins are just so perfect for the fall! My boyfriend and I will be moving in together next year, so I can't wait to use them in our dining room!
