II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

$175 for $45...not too shabby

Okay, I thought about saving this for my Thrifty Thursday post...but I didn't want to wait. Tonight I went for a very quick (45 min) shopping trip with my hubby at the mall. I had $45 worth of birthday money to spend and a $10 gift card to the Gap, and they were burning a hole in my wallet! I ended up getting this cute little dress that was originally $60 for $22, this swimsuit that was originally $65 for $15 and this sterling silver bracelet that was originally $50 for $11....so in all I got $175 worth of stuff and only had to spend $45...of which was all money given to me so it didn't cost me a cent! Hooray! I love finding good deals. I feel like I've been buying a lot of stuff here lately, but man! the sales are awesome right now! If you have small children, you should totally go check out the sale racks at your favorite stores! Now is the time to go swimsuit shopping for next summer! Most places have their suits down to 50% off and also summer clothes are getting cheap. It feels crazy to be buying 8/10's for Brooklyn and 4T for Grant....but next summer I will be so glad I did and got such great deals! Another thing to stock up on while they are dirt cheap---flip flops. Just buy a size or two bigger than what they're wearing now and they'll fit. With flip flops, you can usually make em' work even if they are a teeny bit too big or too small. Okay, happy shopping! If you find good deals, I wanna hear about em'!

Cute, cute swim suit! Yay for good deals! I was at target tonight buying baby food and I saw some 2T swim trunks for $1.74. I couldn't bring myself to get them... crazy right!! I thought I wouldn't have enough cash after buying the baby food. And like you, 2T sounded so far away! But I did have cash left over. Maybe they'll be there tomorrow still... I'll have to check.

That stuff is adorable!!! What a great deal. I find myself addicted to checking all the clearance stuff after being on vacation. It's hard to control with all the good deals going on now. And now we are headed to Minnesota at the end of the week, and they have no tax on clothing or groceries. I might be glad we are taking the semi. More room to put stuff! Ha, I will have to be a little more cautious on the spending since our last vacation was only a few weeks ago. But with no tax it's kinda hard to.
