This MOMMA is EXCITED!!! I LOVE thrifting!!
Attention Everyone.... if you are not a thrifty shopper- I hope this changes your outlook!
I went to the thrift store today with History Books or anything Rain Forest related in mind.This months Calendar time is focused on Rain Forests. I am also in the process of building my own History Curriculum to use for this year!....... Well to my surprise----->SCORE!!! Retail for the following would have been $110.... Wait until you see what I paid!!
I have no clue what the retail value of this Book is. I looked it up and since it is from 1991... and its beat up, in its current state not too much but brand new I am sure this book was at least $40.00. Why did I get a book from 1991? A. Its about our state and B. I USED THIS EXACT BOOK IN MIDDLE SCHOOL!! So funny :P Looking back, I never would have thought I would be buying, a book I hated back in the day, for my kids--- hahaha.... Oh how things change! And then C. I want to build our little homeschool library full of different kinds of books for learning.. So the date nor the OUTER condition of this book was a big deal to me the inside is all in tact!
|Brand New $40|
So of course I got the boys something..... because, I know I know ... like they need new toys???? BUT well, it was HAWT! Not like HOT but HAWT!!! Like seriously my van needs Freon, So no air condition I am rolling with the windows down - and let me just be real-I am a BEAST in the heat - For REAL- Do not mess with me when I am hot, my kids know when momma is hot its almost as if Satan literally manifests, No I am not proud of it - Do not judge me ... I'm sure if I asked your kids- Where are they?? You know you got your Satan button too! But it is what it is and I am just so thankful I am, God willing, going to HEAVEN! Real feel today is 110 degrees and and I wanted them to be sweet and I was trying to look through things and I wanted them to listen and I like to spoil them if I can.... so ... my answer was YEPpppppppp....... GET IT ! It was so cute, and well worth my justifications for more toys, to see them crawling on their knees playing firetrucks when we got home!
|I'm just going to guess new these would be about $5 or more|
Brand new 3 hole punch?!?!?!?! Ughgh YES!
Then I saw this little kit that looked like it would be neat! Its called Brilliant Beginnings' "Toddler Next Step Parent Kit" includes a Guidebook detailing how a toddler develops, hundreds of daily activities, an Activities Toy Guide, a Toddler Rhythm and Rhymes* Music CD, and a copy of "Emily's Best Day Ever" matching pictures book. What the heck ... I think it was like 25 CENTS!
SO WHAT DID I PAY!!!!
$3.26 well spent I would say! :) Thanks for checking out my deals... Happy Thrifting! And Remember..........
