Thrifty Find: You Said What?

I haven't posted a thrifty find in a while. This one comes courtesy of my daughter's school. On Mondays and Thursdays they have a book cart where kids can purchase books for $0.25 a piece or they can trade in a book from home for a "new" book. It's a great program to raise awareness of reading and provide the school with some extra funds most likely geared at reading as well. 

Besides books for children, they have a section of books adults can purchase for $0.50 a piece. I found a book recently that caught my eye. 

The Serene Wristband


My daughter decided on what button I would put on and I know it is a little big. She ended up taking this to use as a collar for one of her smaller stuffed animals. I know wristbands aren't too popular but I think there is potential. There is a little different design on the side not shown. This, of course, works up very quickly.
