I had quite a thrifty adventure yesterday – 6 hours, 150 miles round trip and 5 thrift stores.
Boy – did I make a haul of good buys!
All of the stores had great sales as they were trying to move the winter items and make room for spring and summer.
I try to do a big “thrift run” like this twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. The change in seasons makes for some great bargains.
I had to think ahead – but was able to get a lot of nice clothes for both the kids and myself.
I found a Rothschild’s winter coat for Angel girl – it was in great shape, will fit perfectly next fall and was even one of her favorite colors – purple!
I had seen 3 sweaters like I really liked the last time I was at one of the stores, but thought they were too pricey. I picked up them on the clearance rack yesterday!
Dagmar scored several new pairs of pants on the dollar rack at one store and several nice tops at another. She needed some basic skirts for Teen Pact in a few weeks – and ended up with three nice khaki – colored ones.
I was exhausted by the time I got back home – but it was a happy tired, knowing that my children would be well-clothed in the days in to come! And it cost me so little!
