Thrifty Fix: A Cushy Deal

August 12, 2009

It’s no secret that I love a good deal.  In fact, I love it so much that I usually brag about it to anyone and everyone that will listen.  Lucky for me, I can now do that right here! 

So here’s the cushy deal I recently got at my favorite Goodwill store.  Ready?

Three square down pillows – two blue, one tan –  with good, zip-off covers for $2.00 a piece.  In reeealy good condition.  I don’t know about you, but I thought that was a great find.  I didn’t have a use for them at the moment, but I knew I couldn’t go wrong by snagging them and storing them “just in case.”  Oh, and just for the record – I would only buy down pillows used.  They can easily be washed in the machine to ensure there’s no funny business going on.

Blue Goodwill Pillows

 When I was busily revamping my bedroom, I discovered that the blue of the pillows tied right into the batik fabric I used for my window treatment. Too lazy to sew two whole new pillow covers, I stitched a square of the batik fabric into each of the blue pillows.  Voila!

What about you all?  Any tricks you have for snagging cheap pillows?
