When my mom told me she’d be in town this week, I knew right away what we’d do: thrift shopping! I’ve written about this before, but my mom instilled a serious love of consignment shopping in me. We dropped into a thrift store nearly every weekend when I was a kid.
I had one goal in mind: cheap baby clothes for Henry. We have tons of onesies but I wanted to buy him more outfits – little pants and whatnot.
It’s so much easier to find fun baby girl clothes… dressers and ruffled rompers.
But I snagged a few goodies for Henry, too. Four shirts and two pants for just $12!
I summoned the energy to try on a few items for myself, too (does anyone else find shopping for clothes to be totally draining?). I was staunchly opposed to buying any new clothes to accommodate this baby weight, but it’s two months out, and I’ve since decided that it’s necessary. No more maternity pants, PLEASE! I need zippers and buttons in my life! And tops that actually fit would be a dream. I picked up a new shirt today at Goodwill. I’m willing to spend $2.99 to feel good about my outfits again… I need to go back when I’m really in the mood to shop. Oh, and I borrowed some old jeans from a friend (amazing how good it feels to pull on jeans that fit) – another great way to save cash in this awkward in-between stage.
We went to Fern and ordered the Buddha Bowl. The figs were the best part.
We also had the squash hush puppies.
Are you a thrifter, too?
