Thrift Store

I have been searching for size 9-12 month pj's for the longest time. The only pair I found cost $18! ha ha yeah right! like I'm going to pay that much for something that he grows out of practically when I put it on him. So the next best thing.... yard sales and thrift stores. They are used, but still good and CHEAP. So today Paul had his CPR class from 9-4 so I had plenty of time to go hunting. I found a few yard sales, but nothing with baby stuff... until I went down one street and aaaawwww.... there she be!! BABY CLOTHES. That was practically all they had! WOOO!! I rummaged through the long piles of clothing on the blanket on the ground. I found a set of PJs and a little baseball outfit that looked brand new! I also found a book that has places to put cheerios (the cars wheels, the fish bubbles...) totally made for church! Anyway... I purchased 3 outfits and 2 books for a dollar! score. On to my next stop. I went to the thrift store and what do you know.... a whole long rack filled with baby boys clothes! I found at least 10 outfits and a cute pair of church shoes (that won't fit for a while but eventually he'll wear them). I also found a dress for me (turns out it didn't fit) and at least 5 sets of pjs. and I only spent $10! oh man I love thrift stores. I wouldn't really wear anything there but for a baby, that's the way to go! I'm excited about it.

OHHHhhhh Stephanie!!!! You ARE da WOMAN!!! They are also my favorite! I LOOOOVe a good junk sale! I feel like I have accomplished so much when I am able to get something for practically nothing! That's why (hint hint!) when you get ME something...it's usually better if someone else has broken it in first!
The ultimate cheapy!

Great deals are great! I found the cutest coat for Kira at a used kids store-I should go more often-you can always find cute stuff for way cheaper-but on the other end of it -I something at a thrift store(so it's used) for $2 and the next day I saw the exact thing at the dollar store for a $1. So ya never know-but with clothes, they are always cheaper at the thrift store. Oh by the way I am sorry about what your boss said to you about your last post. I need a haircut-so so so bad, but I don't want to go anywhere where there is no Marie and I never see Marie, so I'm contemplating pulling out the scissors myself. :)-EEEkk I better go visit Marie soon before I do something crazy. I used to cut my hair all the time but with all the time I don't have, I think my 5 minute haircut would be a disaster.
