The local thrift outlet store here in town is absolutely awesome!! They recently started having 50c Mondays. All of their clothes have color-coded price tags. Normally, everyday they have two colors at half-price. Now, on Mondays, on color is half-priced and one is 50c. So, we went to look. We stocked up!! We took both girls in and bought about 20 shirts for them for school for next year. Turns out one's going to be too small, so we'll let them have it now. AND I only spent nine dollars and thirty cents!! Brian spent about the same and got a walking toy for Kieran, a tee shirt Angela's going to pay us back for and a Stitch baseball jersey for Kieran in about five years, but we'll let the kids wear now. (Those two shirts were only half off while all the ones I got were 50c or less.)

Next week we're going to look for some school shirts for Brandon for next year, but he (hopefully) shouldn't need as many because a lot of his currently are still a bit big (size 10-12 when he wears 8-10). Then closer to school we'll start look for school jeans and pants.


Anyways, these shirts are Gap, A&E, and a few others, so I figured between $5 and $15 each regular price, so at an average of $10 each, I would have spent $200, so I saved $190. (I need to get a small patch for one shirt where someone removed a logo.)
