Good thrifting blogs?

You'd think it would be easy to find good thrifting blogs... but so far it hasn't been. Here's what I'm looking for: blogs by people who go to Goodwill and similar thrift stores and buy things for their home/garden and either use them as-is or fix them up somehow. I'm not interested in blogs that focus on clothing/fashion, or blogs that are only about crafting with thrift-store stuff, or blogs that are only about buying and then reselling on ebay or whatever.

Budget Dating Without Being Cheap

I am currently off work until my mental health improves and will shortly have one of my welfare payments suspended (I made some some from selling my half of a jointly owned house, but I'll need all of it to get a small apartment) so I will not have the money I used to for going to cinema or pub or restaurant. My girlfriend/ partner will be similarly impoverished but we don't just want to stay in and watch TV every night. So I was wondering if the group mind here could come up with suggestions for activities that don't cost a lot of money. I would like to be able to treat my partner to nice things but I won't be able to do that much, so I wondered what people here thought would be cheap things to do without seeming cheap, if that makes sense.
