I apologize for not posting yesterday - consignment sale week is here again which means I am working at home all day and working there at night. It's worth it though to be able to shop early today.
Here's my take:
More then I wanted to spend but still got so many great deals it was hard to pass up. The dinosaur will be a b-day present for Caleb in November and it was just $20 - over Christmas they were somewhere over $100 brand new.
Some of the other new things I'll be putting away for the girls for their birthday as well so I guess I did pretty well.
Favorite find - 3 animal flashlights for the girls - they are going to be soo excited when they see them (they're napping now).
For the big kids I got a good start on their fall wardrobe:
and for the babies I picked up 15 pairs of pajamas. They were all in great condition - sadly this won't even get us from one laundry day to the next!! But it's a great start for those cold nights that are sure to come. Eventually... (with the heat we have now I have doubts but I'm hoping!!)
(sorry - I cannot turn the picture)
I didn't go in with a list though I had a general idea of what I needed and the budget that I had hoped for was shot out of the water but still I thought I got a number of deals.
Wondering how I feel about yard sales in comparison? While I agree they are cheaper the finding of things is much harder. In my area we have one community that I feel is worth it but still you have no idea what you may find. I'd rather pay the slightly higher prices of a consignment sale and know what I'm getting.
