Fortunately, we were able to do some serious thrift store shopping this week as Value Village had a 50% off day on Monday and I also hit the Salvation Army thrift store when I was down in that part of the city at the end of last week.
Here is everything we found:
At the Salvation Army:
2 pairs of boxer briefs and a pair of boxers for my boys (I know some of you are thinking "ew, second hand *underwear*?!? - don't worry, they still had the original tags on!!)
A swimsuit for my 13 yr old son
A pair of long shorts for my 11 year old son
A good quality dress shirt for my 13 yr old son
I also got a pair of Reebok spandex exercise shorts for myself that looked like they'd never been worn, apparently I forgot to take a picture of them, though!.
Total spent at Salvation Army: $14.91
At Value Village:
Two hoodies for my 11 year old son
Two button-down shirts - short sleeve for the 13 yr old, long sleeve for the 11 yr old
7 T-shirts - a plain black one for me; the rest for the boys
3 swimsuits for the boys
6 pairs of shorts - 3 for each kid
6 pairs of footwear: sneakers for both boys and hubby (all Reebok/Nike), a pair of sandals for hubby, flip-flops for the 13 yr old, and (most exciting) a pair of black Mary Janes for me - I've been looking for a suitable pair for what seems like forever and these fit my size 9 1/2 feet perfectly and look practically brand new!
Total for Value Village: $87.84
Grand total: $102.75 for 33 items or an average of $3.11 an item.
Thankfully I think we now all have just about everything we need for spring and summer so we won't have to go clothes shopping again until fall!
