New Treasures Under $3!!

Do you have a Michael's Craft store near you? I went there last Sunday looking for invitations. I didn't find what I was looking for, but I did find a section of inexpensive fun kitchen and stationary goodies. I walked out spending $10 on these treasures~

I don't have a recipe box to hold and organize all the recipes I print or tear out of magazines. I would love to find a vintage metal one at some point, but this colorful cute plaid and strawberry cardboard box ($3) will do for now.

Look at the darling strawberry dividers~

Of course, I needed a few recipe cards ($1)~

I couldn't pass up the rooster timer. I don't even have a kitchen timer, I use the timer on my Blackberry!

These utensils were actually  labeled "cooking with mom."

However, since I practically have child-size hands, they were perfect for me. And I've been wanting a smaller sized wisk ($2) and spatula (2/$2) to use for special baking projects.

I don't mean to sound like a Michael's promoter, but I do like thrifty fun finds and thought I'd share them with you all! Michael's also has two "celebrity" lines of similar items. Check them out here~

Stationary goodies~

Now, is it just me or does this week feel like it's just p-o-k-i-n' along after last week's 4-day work week?? I hope yours is going well!

Cute, cute, cute!
Oh, and my Blackberry has a timer? I'll have to check that out!

I love Michael's and I love their $1 bins even more. Those are all super cute colours :)

Hi Teresa~ Just for clarification, I use the alarm on my BB, not a "timer", per se. For example, if I'm cooking something for 20 minutes, I just my phone's alarm to go off in 20 minutes. :-) I don't think my BB has a timer but maybe I should check, LOL!

Michaels always has fun the dollar bins!

Love that recipe box. I may have to go and get me one. The one I have is an ugly gray thing I have had since high school foods class. I love these colors. If I had my own kitchen I would do it in these fun cheerful colors.

Oh how I love those dollar finds! Super cute recipe box! I so need to get myself one. I have lots of recipe that where given to me or that I have just written down on a piece of paper and are not well organized that would be perfect!
Have a wonderful day!
