So instead I am giving you another thrifting post. If you're wondering why I bother, well, I do actually still use these posts to go back and see what I've bought/what I have worn. I am trying to use them to help me weed out the stuff I bought "for only a dollar!" that I never use that's taking up space.
I had my delightful day of escape on Tuesday. No special sales, no special reason, just wanted to hang out with my friend. We went to two thrift stores and that was it. And Starbucks.
Store one was the animal store. Nothing was more than $2. I was more restrained than usual (trust me, I was) and put a few things back that were just eh.
|Wait. I bought a plain black T-shirt what? $1.50|
|I didn't know how to set up a cute photo of jeans so I gave up. They're Old Navy and they were $2.|
|An Old Navy sweater because I am forward thinking. $1.50?|
|This blueish American Eagle top is cute but I really loved the buttons on the sleeves (which you can barely see in this picture) and the color (which is lighter blue in person).|
|Yes, another brown sweater. Wait, this isn't the last of them either.|
|I know it's a black T-shirt but the scoop neck is different!|
|My friend found this for me. It's American Eagle too and the clouds are embroidered.|
|I shouldn't have bought this, but I couldn't make myself put it down either. So I did. And it's cute so there.|
|My kid's size clothing is still 50 cents per piece. If she ever gets bigger, it will go up to a whopping dollar, but for now it's pretty awesome.|
|And more 50 cent things.|
|The only book I allowed myself to buy. I had the paperback version of this long ago but I was really happy to find a great condition hardback. Adorable. $1.|
Not shown: A Lionel train T-shirt for my husband.
And then the other store. What you won't see is that I accidentally bought an Alabama Tide shirt thinking it was something else. It was $3 and fit really nicely but I have no interest in college football (and I'm mad because I put back a BUNCH of things to save money including a mug tree that I wanted to make into a washi tape holder and I'd rather have had that). SO. I sold it to someone for $5. And that covered the two sweaters below - all sweaters were on sale for a dollar:
|It's Old Navy and is browner in person.|
|Gap, and it's really really really soft. And less boring on than it is on the hanger.|
And that is that.
I do hope to someday get back to writing meaty interesting posts about things like my kid and cerebral palsy and my life.
