Thrift Store Trip

Today I visited a local thrift store (the Village Discount Outlet), which is by far the largest thrift store/resale shop that I have ever seen. Over half my wardrobe probably comes from there, as well as probably almost all of my son's. In the last two weeks, along with cutting his 3rd tooth, Levi has taken a growth spurt. Quite a few of his one-piece rompers and onesies are having a hard time snapping, without me pulling and tugging and stretching them first. And for a little boy trying to master the art of crawling, having a tight outfit on isn't his favorite thing. So it was definitely time to visit The Village again.

And while they didn't have very many boy onesies or cotton sleepers for this next size, I used my ever-growing imagination, and found two-piece pajama sets, pajama tops that can go with cotton pants we already have, long sleeve shirts (instead of long-sleeve onesies) to go with a couple pairs of jeans I got from a lady earlier this week (who has a son just a few stages ahead of Levi), and some lightweight fleece sleepers as the nights (hopefully) start to get cooler.

The grand total? $16. Yep, that's right. 5 fleece sleepers, 1 pajama set, 6 longsleeves, 3 onesies, 2 short sleeves, and 1 polo romper, which makes 18 pieces of boy's clothing, and the total was $16. How is that possible? I like to go on Thursdays, because at the Village, not only are things marked decently low anyway, every week they change "half-price" tag colors, and for some weird reason they change the colors for the "week" on Thursdays. This week anything with blue or green tags were half-off. So I looked exclusively for those colors.

Crawling, walking, cool weather, and playing outdoors in the fall, here we come!
