Feels like a lucky day

After a fun, spur-of-the-moment overnight trip here with some good friends for some of this...
and some of this...

I went thrift-store shopping for some of this...
and picked up a Spring wardrobe of nearly new clothes (3 shirts, 3 skirts, and one pair of pants) for what I would have paid for any one of those things new. About $30 for all of it! Yay! (Oh - and for those who asked - that's the second-hand couch my kids declared as ugly, but I'm rather fond of. It's growing on them.)

When I can spend time with my kids and some of my closest friends, and THEN replenish my wardrobe in about an hour for so little money, I DEFINITELY feel lucky.

There is nothing like a bargain. Your sofa looks mighty comfy... I'm with you.

Any sign of the Ceremonial Headdress? I tried the whole Canada Post "ship in a click" and I am not sure I totally trust it. Not that it wouldn't be a bad thing if it were lost in the mail... haha!

Sounds like a very benefical weekend.

We are second hand store people too! They are the best.

I like the couch. If your kids want to see a picture of an ugly couch I'll send them the picture of the couch I grew up with. !!!

That couch looks brand new, and it's not ugly at all!

What an eventful 24 hours. I need to go thrift store shopping with you some time.

Gina said...

The couch actually matches your carpeting very nicely, doesn't it?

Glad you had such fun!

I bought an outfit at value village for $9.00. And the jeans are so flattering. I love them. Pretty much all of Nate's wardrobe comes from there too!
