Shopping Spree

I did try to do a budget for the year. But it didn't work out. I'm a junk store, thrift shop, yard sale, consignment junkie!

First, Big Lots has several styles of real Crocs marked at $10. I bought Natalie one pair in purple, one in turquoise. Yay!

Her purple is darker and prettier!

Second, hit up the big consignment sale tonight. Look what I scored!

(I know, if you don't cloth diapers you are like what the heck? Tie Dye diapers! Love em! )

I also got a swimsuit with the built in floaties, 2 Little Einstein DVDs (Easter basket!), 2 Dora DVDs and an Elmo DVD. I got $80 worth of movies for $18. YAY I also got a cute disney skirt for the kiddo.

Then I hit up the $1 tag sale at my consignment store. I am buying up to size 6X right now. They had 18 pieces of clothing from 4T-6X in winter styles. Lots of gymbo! I have all her clothes for next winter now. Anything else I find between now and next year is just gravy.

I got Natalie 5 leotards at the consignment store. The purple long sleeved was $3, the two tank (she picked out that leopard one instead of mama's favorite blue one) ones were $2.50 and another short sleeved one not pictures (green and purple) and long sleeved fuzzy pink were just $1 each. Fancy leotards can cost $30! eeck! (BTW, have I mentioned how much my child rocks gymnastics? lol I'm so excited because she's so stinkin good!). I think these will last a couple of years, she is an XXS now and the largest one is a small.
Bye for now!

That's amazing that you were able to get all those items for your girls for such a cheap price!

I'm a recent college graduate trying to save a buck and was searching for sites that offered deals and coupon savings. Thankfully, I came across your blog. I saw that you had list of printable coupon links and thought it would interest you to check out the coupon savings pages on and because they also offer great deals, sometimes daily, for gadgets and other products. Both sites have printable coupons as well as coupon codes for the online shoppers. Stores include Target, Walmart, Home Depot, Sears, HP, Dell and other great brands. Other coupons sites I've found on my quest to save money are and

Just thought I'd let you know! Thanks so much for your blog. It's very helpful for a college student trying to save money.
