I found some good deals on my shopping outing today. I dropped off the bags of clothing at the thrift shop and went to Big Lots which is in the same plaza. Lucky for me today was a special 20% off day! I got toilet paper and tissues, a candy treat, some vegan snack bars, and a flag holder for my new kitty flag. Sadly the holder thing will have to be returned as it won't go together. Then I went to Beall's because I had a $5 reward to use there. I always look at clearance and I found 2 shirts and a pair of denim capris. I also found 2 other capris on sale. I guess I am quickly replacing what I gave away!

I love Big Lots and also the fact that you get a freebie from time to time. I find quite a lot of plant based food there for a fraction of the price. However, you do you to scan the aisles.

My supermarkets have no sabra plain hummus so I had to try another brand. Also gross. Tastes like cigarette ashes. 🤢🤮
I think I figured out the cigarette ashes taste. Must be the tahini. Sabra is very mild while Joseph’s must use more. I just had the nature’s promise one and while it wasn’t as strong a taste as Joseph’s, it still had that taste to it.

I found Aldi quite overwhelming when I went there for the first time the other day. Everything is piled up and they seem to have random stuff like gardening and DIY tools by the food aisles. They did have a vegan section but it had veggie stuff in there too. I think I will have to go back when it isn't so busy and look properly.

A roll of jute yarn. I found a nice pattern to make a basket for the bathroom that will hold mini cotton washcloths.

Oh hey--have you ever thought to crochet a fake hornets nest? I saw that somewhere and thought of you. Fake hornets nests are supposed to deter the real ones from building a nest, territorial.
Never mind, looked it up and they're not proven to work

Bummer that it doesn't work because it's a cool idea!
