While I’m not big into fashion and vintage clothes and household items, I still LOVE shopping at thrift stores and garage sales. 80% of my warddrobe is from the local thrift store and Mason’s book collection is growing in leaps and bounds from garage sales. Why pay $7 for a board book when I can get it for 50 cents?!

I find it VERY amusing that three years ago, Auntie Sarah and I would purposely avoid garage sales that had a bunch of kid stuff at them and now, those are the only kind I intentially seek out.  Last Saturday, I hit paydirt and ended up buying Mason three outfits, two big toys, and about 15 books for $10! Then, at our local animal shelter’s garage sale today, I scored him two BAGS of clothes, this awesome $40 ride on lion (the second to last picture shows it in “ride on” mode),  and another dozen books for just $9!

Mason approves of his 25 cent ride on turtle!

    Why pay full price? I hardly ever do unless it’s at Children’s Place or Kohl’s and even then it’s always on sale.

    I love it!!! I adore going to yard sales too – and the baby stuff is the best, because it’s hardly used! Way to go!
