I really hate to pay full price for anything (although it IS nice to get some nice brand spankin' new clothes every so often); but for the girls... Kids outgrow clothes in 3 months (give or take)... these clothes don't REALLY get worn out right? Unless you count the...er ... accidents, but if they're that bad I usually toss the item of clothing.
But back to my point... today I worked my volunteer shift at my Junior League's Consignment store. I planned this REALLY well because today was ALSO the 75% off Customer appreciation sale! Score! As I walked around the store, helping customers, and tiding up... I also picked myself up some steals!
I am happy to say that for $7.26 I walked out with the following:
Then, for an added bonus, I was talking to and helping out this one lady who was buying a LOT! When she got up to the register, she had a piano keyboard! After the 75% off she was going to get home with it for $2.50. Not bad huh? She told me she figured she'd get it for her 6 month old... I told her I had a 6 month old too, and a 2 year old and that was a GREAT idea! I was secretly jealous that I hadn't seen it and set it aside myself. But oh well. As I help her to her car she says, 'here... you have it. I already have a big one at home and your 2 year old would get more out of it than my son would'. I of course said, oh no... I couldn't. But after some pushing I finally gave in... so I also made it home with...
Pretty good day, huh?
