Thrift shopping helps you stretch your money

I went shopping today and could not find a birthday boy t-shirt in the right size, a 12 month bathing suit for our up coming vacation, or a John Deere t- shirt in a the size 12 months stir a boy. I am thinking what am I going to do his birthday is on Saturday and his party. His theme is John Deere and I have no shirt and plus I want him to have a nice birthday boy shirt. After looking at Farm N Fleet I head to DeKalb’s Salvation Army and found him a simple John Deere t-shirt, a nice birthday boy shirt and swim trunks. I also decided to look for my daughter for our family vacation and found here a nice hardly used bag pack, two swimsuits a size 6 and one 7, plus a little purse with the tags still on it never used which I can use for a Christmas present and fill with girlie items. If I would of bought this all new I would of paid an arm and a leg. Once u get over the thrift store smell it is ok. You have laundry detergent at home and dryer sheets. Plus do we really know what happens to new clothes in factories no. Do we know that my kids clothing comes from thrift stores, garage sales, or I used coupons to get them. The answer is no. Unless you know me personally you could never tell. Not everything is pictured in the above picture but you see some of my great finds.

Total for shopping thrift for 3 swim suits, 2 t-shirts and one book bag $11.23.

Just a side not Salvation Army has a color of the week and all of those items are $.99 or if they are less than $.99 they are 50 percent off.

Good buys greeting cards are $.25 a piece, home decor is super cheap, picture frames are usual a dollar or less. We just bought one for $.39 because my daughter broke a nice frame. Lol kids.




Miss 4 has decided to put on both bathing suits at the same time and then asks if she can go to the beach (which would be Hopkins pool).  I reply no and the tongue comes out and I had my camera to capture this classic picture.

Goodwill $1 Clothing

I have been very tired.  I will try to get some things posted later this week.  No one told me sitting at the clinic for 4 hours and getting my blood drawn 4 times on Saturday would make me so tired.  I slept all day Saturday and didn’t feel up to par on Sunday.  I will be getting my results back soon.

Just a reminder in DeKalb Tuesday at Goodwill they have $1 clothing sale.  Call your local Goodwill to see if they are having the same event.

Thanks Tasha.

OMG!  Woot check out these coupons at target! There are all kinds of new ones and my favorite new apparel coupons  (why because I keep shrinking and love fabulous cheap purses Oh YEAH WOOT!!), various Archer Farms coupons, produce, Up & Up store brand  coupons and too many to write about!  Remember, these are Target store coupons, so they can be stacked with manufacturer’s coupons for combined savings! Get your printers ready and start printing!!  Remember turn that computer printer to gray-scale only black ink to keep cost low.

Note: Low on ink search for ink at Ebay or go and get it refilled.  OfficeMax said my cartridges for Cannon could not be refilled they are full of  baloney (yes they can!).  If you want stock up before hand eBay as cheap as 2 dollars or less.  Yes expired ink works for the coupon countrysavingmommy!

PS.  apparel coupons disappear quickly.  I am off and running to my printer see ya back here later.
