Thrifty Cookware

I am thrifty or at least I like to think so. I love to shop at thrift stores and yard sales because you can find the most amazing find for lots less $ than retail stores. Some of my fave finds were a 4 piece crockery casserole set, 2qt and 1qt with lids , they were like new. Didn't even look like they had ever been used, price ~ around $8.

Isn't it great! (sorry for the fuzzy photo) Its so vintage looking :) Best of all it was only $1.99. So far its cooked mashed taters and hamburger helper, sorry gourmets youngest DS loves it. Did you notice the blue enamel ware plates that I use for stove eye covers? ~ Nikki

I also like to take pictures and although I used to post my photos on another blog , I think this will be their new home. If I post something you like let me know. I LOVE COMMENTS! It makes me feel happy. Thanks ~ Nikki
