I keep trying and trying to be more frugal on the clothes buying front. But, I can never seem to actually find things I like second hand for a good price. In the effort to try again, I headed off to the Mom2mom consignment sale yet again. I’ve tried several years and never found anything. At least this year I didn’t leave empty handed. I found 4 items (2 in current size and 2 that he won’t wear until next year) for $11. If I had found more deals I could have ended up for about 40 items for $100! That would have been great but the prices were high (especially on the girls clothes- faded and well worn for $5/dress?) and the selection was limited. Sigh. I wish we had more large consignment stores a la the Dugars on 19 kids and counting nearby. But, I digress. In my shopping I noticed a heavy theme- can you catch it?
Along the same theme I almost bought
but the $5 price tag and the fact that it was much more bubblegum than it appears in the pictures held me back. Had it been more along the lines of $3 or if J had been more excited about it I may have sprung for it.
Oh well, I tried! But, I now remember why I don’t usually bother. Trying to dig through the racks with 3 boisterous children in tow is not the most fun I’ve ever had!
On the way home I did discover
at a little flea market type store. Look familiar? Anyone remember the trunk I snatched up for under $15??? See that “sale” tag?? Patting myself on the back right now! 🙂
