Random Rants #5

Share it Please
Random Rants is a weekly post I am starting that I will post on Sundays. I will be ranting about things I loved or didn't love from the past week...these rants do not pertain to books.
ZUMBAAAA!

Just recently I've been going to Zumba classes. And it's pretty danged fun. I'm not so new to dancing, but laaaawd the instructors know how to speed up the pace xD Needless to say, it's only $5.00 a class or you can buy the monthly membership for $75.00 which isn't too bad. I go 3 times a week so that's $15.00  I know, I'd rather spend that $15.00 on books, but these Zumba classes are now an essential part of my daily routine (well, every other daily routine hehe). It really doesn't even feel like working out but you sure do sweat a lot. The music keeps you pumped & you can't help but get into it and let go :) Oh BTW the classes are nothing and I repeat, NOTHING, like the classes. Classes are way better IMO.



THRIFTING! 

Wheeew. My sister is a big time thrifter. She loves going to the goodwill and other thrift stores and get stuff. At first, I was like "Oh hell no! People wore that!!" (yeah, my high maintenance ass) That should be past tense now. I've learned to love thrifting. Here's my reasons....

♥Cheap! Cheap! Cheap!
♥Most thrift store's have books
♥The clothes aren't half bad.

Seriously, you can find a bunch of stuff at thrift store for cheap... So, with that being said. here are some of my purchases from thrift stores.  



Okay.. The basket has a minor flaw and that flaw would be the fact that it's previous owner had wrote "FRITZ" on both front and back. But, that didn't stop me from buying it. It was only 50¢!!! It's a good size to store a bunch of little knickknacks. I keep my little sewing kit in there, along with pictures and fabrics.

SEE! BOOKS! For really cheap too! I can't tell you I remember how much I bought Never Tell by Selena Mongomery or Things I Want My Daughters to Know by Elizabeth Noble for, but I can assure you that they were both under $2.00 McKettrick's Pride by Linda Lael Miller & rhymes with witches by Lauren  Myracle, I bought for a total of .80¢ Pretty damned cool huh?  Burned by P.C. & Kristin Cast and City of Bones by Cassandra Clare I bought for a total of $8.00 from Goodwill.

Belt's... well these belts I believe were a dollar a piece. They're really cool & fun :)

Well, that's it for this week's Random Rants! I hope you enjoyed what I had to share with you :) Did you do or get anything this week?

    1. You should! It's really fun! Lol. You'll get used to it. It's not hard at all. You just keep moving.

      lol. You def need to find a thrift store near you. Living where I live, I can just hop on the bus and go downtown and there's a whole street of thrift stores. xD City of Bones was recommended to me, so when I saw it at Goodwill I was like *snap a picture and ask her if this was the book she was talking about* lol. Thanks, they're really good for color blocking and adding a little flare to your outfit :)ughh FRITZ sucks!! but, it's a cute lil basket hehe.

  2. Girl I love going to the Goodwill for books. The one close to my house actually has some really good ones for the most part. Lots of hardbacks which is great. Like you said the best part is that its CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. Those belts you got are hot and I love the colors.

    Now you are making me want to hit up my Goodwill store for some books. I haven't been over there in months so maybe next weekend I'll have to make a stop.

    1. Same here. The hardbacks are like a dollar more than the paperbacks. Yepp cheeeap cheap cheap :) Seriously I only ever go there with $10 or less and come out with a whole bunch of stuff. The first place I raid though is the book section xD Oh there were so many belts (seriously nice ones too)

      Let me know if you do get to go to the Goodwill :) Would love to see what you came away with! Thanks for stopping by Cimmaron
