So, without further ado...
While looking through the children's clothes, I saw someone pick up this heart embellished long sleeve tee. I held my breath, hoping they would decide against it. And, when they did, indeed decide against it, I swooped in. This Mini Boden tee shirt was only $2.99.
Though a bit big, this sweet Gap Kids dress was only $2.99. My motto, when you find a good deal buy it. I will buy up to 2-3 sizes bigger than Grace's current size, if I think it's a style that isn't too trendy risking going out of style before she is able to fit into it.
Have you heard of Buddha Boards? They are really cool. You just draw on the surface with water. The water evaporates, within a few minutes (about 5-10 depending on how much water you use), leaving you with a clean slate, ready to create all over again. The concept is to encourage you to create without worrying about it being perfect since it isn't permanent.
I found a large Buddha Board Laptop for $2.99 with the original bamboo brush included. These surprisingly retail for between $30-$40. I'm not sure who is enjoying this more, me or Grace.
Recently, my Goodwill has added a 4 items for $1 section. This section is typically stocked with the dollar items you find at Target. These are fun and frugal finds for stocking stuffers or to add to a basket for a teacher's gift.
And, speaking of baskets..,
I love looking through the baskets at Goodwill. They typically range from .99 cents to $3.99. This particular trip, I bought 2 for $3 total. I filled one with gourds and gave it to a a mom that had invited Grace and I over for a play date.
The brown basket, I filled and gave to Grace's teacher just before Halloween.
My favorite basket find from last year, my get cozy basket...
Today, we got our first snow...tis the season for getting cozy.
Thank goodness for frugal thrift store finds.
