Thrift store shopping!

My girls and I went thrift store shopping today. Gotta love $.50 and $1 deals on clothing! I found a $5 winter coat for my oldest son. Some $1 boots. We found some cheap fleece fabric and I found a 9.5" pie plate - mine got broken last week.​ I love garage sales for cheap, almost new clothing too.

Do you "do" second hand clothing or do you always buy new?

    Looooove thrift store shopping! I found a pair of Steve Madden boots that looked like they had honestly never been worn for $5 and a pin-up style dress with polka dots that looked like it came from Betty Paige for $3. Thrifty is the way to go!

      I do both, but mostly second hand. They grow to quickly, and tear things up way too quickly, for me to fork out a ton of money.

        Makeba, we have those kinds of thrift stores too, but we hit the dollar one first to see what we can find before venturing to the others. I use to forgo thrift stores and just do garage sales because so many people who had one and two children would have nearly perfect clothing or equipment for dirt cheap. But the past few summers we have been so busy that I can't seem to get to any garage sales.

        We have three right in our town and then we have 2-3 in the town 10-15 minutes away. We have to hit those next week.

        I've gotten some great deals on baby stuff at yardsales. Love doing that when I find the time and motivation!
