Tips for living a fabulous life on a budget

Budget Home Design – Flea Market Finds January 27, 2010

In a recent adventure to the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market I found some great budget accessories for my apartment including: windowsill plants/pots $1/each, drinking glasses $10/4, and a horse shoe $1.  I placed the horse shoe above the door to my kitchen for good luck. I was totally exhausted after 5 hours of flea market shopping, but it was well worth it.

Pasadena Flea Market Finds July 16, 2008

Entry Fee – $7.00

Homemade Salsa – $4.00

Vintage Leather Belt – $7.00

The Rose Bowl Flea Market has been on my list of things to do ever since I moved to LA.  This past weekend, I finally went and it was totally worth the hype.  I found a really cute vintage leather belt and some amazing homemade salsa.

I was disappointed that I only had two great finds. But I an over-heated and under-caffeinated attention span is not ideal for rummaging through vintage clothes and nick-knacks. Even though we decided to head home early, we still had a great time and found some great stuff. I would definitely go back!
