Thrift Store Shopping

Twice a year there is a children's consigment sale in the next town over. I needed some summer clothes for my son, so I decided to head on over there. Of course I waited until the day when everything was marked 50% off. I found a lot that I liked, but didn't really buy much because I am too cheap frugal to even pay $1.50 for something that is used. The building where the sale is held just happens to be adjacent to the Salvation Army thrift store. After the sale was over I headed over to the Salvation Army and, lo and behold, a lot of the very same things I looked at at the consignment sale were hanging on the racks in the Salvation Army. AND... it just so happened that it was half price day at the Salvation Army. I got shirts for $.55, pants for $.65, and rompers for $.80. I was excited! Maybe none of you really care how much I paid for my kid's clothes, but I do, and it's my blog, and I'm excited, so I'll blog about it whether you really wanted to know or not! All this for $11.40
Head on over to Frugal Friday at Biblical Womanhood for more great frugal ideas!


  1. Great deal on those clothes, you should be proud.

  2. Whoo Hoo! I'll be excited for you. I get such a shopper's high to get deals like that too. Good Job. We have a Consignment Sale in our town like that and I do really if you consider that I sell my 3 kids clothing there as well, I usually break even or make a little, but I always make at least the amount that I spend!! I get clothes for 3 kids for that season for under $100, including shoes, and some toys and fun stuff too.

  3. What great deals! I, too, love thrift store/consignment shopping. While I am not as frugal as you (yet!), I do try to buy the majority of my sons clothes used. Hand-me-downs are great, too! It just seems silly to pay so much for clothes that will be outgrown in a few months.
