Just call me "Mrs. Thrifty"

Some people think that I'm cheap. But, then again, they're not the ones having to budget on an extremely low, I'm mean tight, income. =) So, I call myself "thrifty". This weekend, I went to a neighborhood garage sell and hit the jackpot! I was so excited at all of the great deals I got- I didn't pay more than $2 for anything!

My treasures...
Zayde racked up on some clothes- he got 16 pieces of clothing with NO stains or worn spots. I am picky about the clothes I get for him, even if they are used. He also got a play weed eater, ball, tricycle/scooter, potty chair and other toys. Other great deals I found were: 4 glass mugs, pictionary, 10 movies, brown heels, a necklace, a lamp, a Christmas decoration and some clothes for myself.



My Grand Total:



Are you ready for this?





$20
Yes, that's right, 20 bucks!! You cannot beat that. Here's a closer look at our goodies...







Here's some cute pics of my sweetness!





The video below is of Zayde dancing- he LOVES to dance! (BTW- it's more fun if you have your sound turned on.)

The pictures of him in that hat just make me smile! He is so handsome! I am very cheap--David makes fun of me for it! Most of Brooklynn's clothes come from consignment shops. You got some amazing deals, and I know how good it feels to save that kind of money!

There is nothing wrong with being Thrifty!! Way to Go!!! I've been trying to do that with CVS purchases. You did a great job. The clothes and toys look like they are in great condition. I need to watch some garage sales for some things for Jesse.

I'm glad you got to go to the game together! Cute picture!!

Yeppie Miss Amy, Thats great. I'm all about a good deal. Nothing wrong with making your dollar go alittle bit further. Looks like you got some good stuff, I love that necklace. And Zayde is loving his good finds. Talk to you later, love you. Karen

Looks like you found great things AND had a great day! That's all that matters. :)

BTW, you never know what you can find at the garage sales. I don't go as near often as I'd like. One of my friends went to one last year and scored 3 Longaberger baskets for $5. All three for $5.....she called me with excitement! The funny story on that though is the hubby at that garage sale I'm sure was in big time trouble, as HE took it upon himself to clear some items from the house while his wife went to the store! Oh Oh!
