I *love* the thrift store!
Anytime I can find something I’m needing without paying full price, I’ve a very happy girl!
This week, we brought down all of our baby things to determine what we need for this new little girl we’re expecting.
Though I’ve always thought those parenting magazines are way off on those “what you need for new baby” lists they publish, let’s face it, there are some things you just have to have.
We’ve been stocking diapers and wipes for sometime. I try and make it a practice, from the time I find out I’m expecting to buy a bag of baby diapers from every pay period, so diapers aren’t usually in short supply. The other items are where we’re hurting!
Jessica and I went through and made our own “what we need” list so we can start preparing.
This week at the thrift store I found some keepers– some for baby and some for the older children:
not seen are the juicer (with instructional manual!! Woohoo!!), 6 pair of little boy blue jeans that look brand new!!, a new set of hot rollers that also looked like they had never been used, and three absolutely beautiful baskets–
Ahhh…Miss Emma. She’s been waiting patiently for a new pair of boots. We were shocked how much dirt can collect on a pair of shoes when children are out playing on this much land. Most of my kiddos have rubber boots. Emma had worn her’s totally out…she instantly fell in love with her new boots!
