I had a fun Saturday, yesterday. Why? Well, (of course) it involved bargain shopping! I haven't been able to get out and do a lot of bargain hunting lately, so it was a wonderful day.
But, first . . . just an aside . . . we're having a boy! Around the beginning of June, he'll enter the world, and we couldn't be more excited.
So, back to my fun Saturday—I left the house at around 8:45 in the morning, in order to hit up a local cloth diaper consignment sale. People line up for this whenever they have one, and I was hoping to find some new diapers so I could sell off some of my older ones. I ended up being one of the first people through the door, so the minute the sale started, I headed straight to the pocket diapers, and fared pretty well! I walked out the door with two more one-sized pocket diapers, an Imse Vimse one-sized organic cotton contour diaper, a Kissaluvs one-sized diaper cover, and 2 Happy Heinies trainers, all for under $55! I found some great deals! Now, to figure out which of my older diapers to sell. Sorry, I don't have pictures of the new diapers to share.
Then after coming home, and being greeted with hugs and kisses from my little girl, I grabbed some breakfast, and enjoyed some family time.
After nap time, we all piled in the car and headed over to a local children's consignment store for their "Fill-A-Bag for $15" sale! I L-O-V-E this sale. Whenever they have one, I try to make it there. They give you a bag, and you fill it with whatever you can cram in from their clearance selection, and pay only $15/bag! It's great! I grabbed some great steals last year for my daughter. And this year, I was shopping for toddler girl sizes, AND little boy clothes! That felt so strange . . . but so fun! Here's a sampling of what I grabbed, and I got it ALL in ONE bag--both the boys' and girls' items!
Now, if all that wasn't enough! We walked down to a local outdoors/hiking store that's really close to the consignment shop, and wandered into their clearance section just for curiosity. We love hiking and being outside, so this is just a fun shop to peruse. Their stuff is normally way too pricey for us, but it's fun to look. We do sometime pick up necessary odds and ends for a backpacking or hiking trip from them. Anyway, I never knew they had a little back room dedicated to clearance items, but we found it this time! What fun! And, we found these adorable Smartwool (I LOVE Smartwool) socks for babies 6-12 months for $9.99 (normally almost $19). Aren't they adorable?!
So, that was my fun, fun bargain shopping day. I love saving money!!
