Because I Have TOO Much Time On My Hands!

Michael is painting, Ella is sleeping and Owen and Jack are at Ga-Ga & Pa's house right now. So...what do I do with my free time? I lay out my garage sales finds and take pictures of them of course! I decided to do this so when I'm walking through Old Navy or Children's Place and I see a cute sweater or pair of jeans or something I can remind myself that I can get that ONE piece of clothing maybe 2 pieces for $33.50 or I can come home with ALL of this stuff for $33.50!

The whole reason I went to garage sales with my mom was to find Owen some bigger clothes. He is in 3T right now, but he is getting bigger so his need for 4T clothes is right around the corner. Thankfully we hit the jackpot! Here's what I got for my $33.50 dollars...

3 coats (the middle one my mom bought) & 5 sweaters

6 short sleeve shirts - 10 long sleeve shirts - 7 pairs of pants

2 swim trucks for Owen - Buzz Lightyear swim suit for Jack - one muscle shirt - 3 pairs of pajamas - 2 pairs of shorts

Ga-Ga got Ella the 2 outfits on the left - I got her the shirt and shirt pant set on the right

Two shirts for me (pink tank top had the tag on it) - Pajama bottoms with dogs on them - Black and white dress (Only $1!!!!)

For the non clothing stuff I got... Metal Tonka Dump Truck (A QUARTER!!!) - 2 games for the boys Christmas presents - Pair of Stride Rite shoes for Jack - Thomas The Train - Sesame Street book. Oh and I also got a Starbucks drink for $1.95. I'd say I did pretty good!!!

I'd say you did good too! How exciting that you found what you wanted. Reading your post makes me really sad I will miss Oct. Mill Creek garage sales. :(
