Got a lovely new haircut, very chic and makes me all feisty feelin! Then since I had a little time to waste until I picked up the kiddies I stopped at a couple of my favorite thrift stores. My first score was at The Idaho Youth Ranch, and I found this paper punch. Took me a second to figure it out.http://picasaweb.google.com/conkrotwife/Thrifty#5262682573222122050
Then I punched a scrap of paper in my pocket and realized it’s a tag/label thingy! Looks like the 7 gypsies tags I’ve seen in the past. Pretty cool got it for 1.25, a little much for a thrift store but a new punch is about 10 so I’m happy!
My second stop was my local Goodwill. And this is where you go when you are looking for toys, costumes, books everything! Normally I have the kids but this time I was all alone and took my time wandering the isles. Found a Nora Roberts book I hadn’t read in a long time, a PINK socceer ball (for Miss Clara)
An apron for Jack, a halloween book, index card dividers (months and alpha) and the sweetest little jeans for miss C! All total $11.35! Not a bad deal.
I’m making year in review mini album with the month dividers. Need to find one that’s numbered for my december mini…..
Last time I had the twins with me and they each got to pick out a couple of things (total about 3 bucks each) Jack got the most annoying truck with sound which he loves! Clara got a purple purse she calls her “rescue pack” from Go Diego Go, she also found a bag of my little ponies for a buck, it had 8 ponies!
Thrift shops are the ultimate way to consume less, throw away less, and just be a little less controlled by your things. I like to box up stuff and donate which is good for my messy garage and good for my taxes, but I also like finding little things for a deal too!
