Thrift store manifesting

4 Mar

It often happens that when I need (and also when I “need”) something and head out to a thrift store, that item happens to be there. A friend of mine calls this manifesting. I’d love to believe that I have magic powers, but if so, it’s sort of sad that they’re limited to making a vegetable peeler appear at Salvation Army. Maybe I need to do some Law of Attraction exercises from The Secret (TM) to move to a higher level of manifesting. Or maybe just some TM.

Well, whatever the cause, I was very happy to find the two things I wanted at the thrift store yesterday — a scale (much less happy about that one once I climbed onto it) and a vegetable peeler. Okay, there were probably ten vegetable peelers there and maybe it’s not such a stretch to find one. The scale was an Ikea model and I got it for $4.99. Just saw on their web site that they sell for $5.99, but since the nearest Ikea is an hour’s drive away, it saved me more than a buck.

I wish I could manifest the cats into cleaning the house, but even if my magical powers are limited to finding odds and ends at the thrift store, I’ll take it. Better that than NOT finding a 49 cent veg peeler when you really need one.

    This is so weird since I just wrote a Manifesto post yesterday… I like your idea of manifesting better. Gonna try it.
