Consignment Sale Season Rules - August 27, 2011
With this trip, the kid is pretty much set for the fall. She still needs a few sweaters or warmer tops - I have a weakness for cute cotton long-sleeved tops for her, particularly when they cost a dollar, so she has a lot of them.
Shopping for her is just...so easy and so much fun. I used this consignment sale as a way to clear my head for a bit. It's been a very stressful few weeks when it comes to her new classroom, new routine, new teachers, and so on, and I had reached a breaking point on Friday. Taking a long walk with my headphones on, deep breaths, hugging a good friend, and stocking the closet for very little money - all things that helped me sort out my thoughts.
I may hit one (or two?) more sales for some last few things (I'm also looking for certain DVDs and two very specific toys) but I'm largely done for a few months. Whee.
