In case you didn't know, I'm uber cheap. I pinch every penny until Abe screams for mercy. It's the way I am and the way I've always been. The Hubs is the generous one in our family. Not saying I won't help someone out, especially if I know and love them, but he's MUCH more apt to give. I don't begrudge him that at all. I'm cool when he is generous, I am just not good at it myself. All that to say I'm cheap. Above all else, I DESPISE paying retail prices. It's a ridiculous mark up.
Anyway, the other day my SIL, Mrs. Pickles, and I went "thrifting" (aka shopping multiple thrift stores). 90% of mine and my kid's clothing comes from thrift stores or garage sales. We picked up some GREAT deals! Now, I'm not naive enough to think that every piece of clothing I need for my children or myself will come from thrift stores or garage sales. I know better, but you can find some uber cute stuff for much less than you'd pay in the store.
I picked up 5 or 6 t-shirts for Firecracker, a dress, a top and a pair of Levi jeans for myself and paid less than 20.00. Yep, I love being cheap!
Have a great day!
