There were 2 areas that had multiple homes having garage sales this weekend and I got to enjoy them both. 2 mornings without kids (love them....but love to have a break from them too), and one morning a great friend came with me. It was a good weekend cold, but fun. :)
I found some great clothes for Silas everything in great condition and no stains. Mostly Old Navy, Carters, Target, and GAP. Starting from the 1 o' clock position: 2 pair pjs $1.00 a piece, dressy outfit for 1.00, 2 super cute Sunday outfits 1.50 a piece, GAP sweatshirt .50, jeans and cargos .75 a piece, and dress shoes 1.00 = Total: $8.00
Smaller pile, but still nice stuff for Asa from Old Navy. 4 long sleeve shirts 1.50, and 9 pair of unders for 2.25 (kind of pricey for used unders, but they were in good condition and cheaper than new....and we definitely need more!). Total = $3.75
In an effort to turn TV viewing down to 1.5hrs per day I've been stockpiling books. I also have all themes planned out for next school year so I've been stockpiling on books to go with those themes as well. There are 20 books here (sorry Zak). I would say half of them were .25, 7 were .50 and 3 of them were 1.00. Total = $9.00
Ok....random pile of stuff. lol
First let me explain the Beanie Babies. Do we need stuffed animals...no. Do I want more stuffed animals....no. However, here is the scenario. For Annabelle's K year we are doing the Animals and Their Worlds core from Winter Promise. We will be visiting 6 different environments and taking a look at the animals that live there. Asa and Silas will probably be tagging along for most of it. I thought it would be really fun for all three of them (but Silas and Annabelle in particular) to have a variety of animals to set out that go with each environment that we study. You know for fun imaginary play. :) Ok, back to the deals.
Boggle Jr (complete) 2.00, 5 beanies at .25 a piece, 4 golf tee games (Silas fine motor skills) 1.00, random scraps of fabric of different textures (for a texture sort I've been wanting to make for Silas) 2.25. Total = $6.50
I hit the mother load for Annabelle! Such great, almost new, non-stained things! Mostly Old Navy, OshKosh, Target (Circo), Kohls, and Gymboree. Starting from the top right: 4 pair shorts 1.00 (.25 a piece!), white sundress 1.00, Gymboree outfit 2.00, 2 cute jean leggings NWT 1.00, 8 summer shirts 2.00, 9 long sleeve shirts 2.25. Total = $9.25
9 books $3.50
Did I get anything for me this weekend you ask? Why yes, yes I did. 3 great classic pieces of literature in new condition for $3. Looking forward to diving into some Emily Dickinson poetry soon!
GRAND TOTAL = $50
Not too shabby! If you want to see other good finds head over to My Life on a Taffy Pull. Happy blogging.
