Thrifty Thursday!

You see that boy in the picture?  He doesn't listen.  

It doesn't matter how many times I tell that boy to stop growing...he just won't listen!!

So last weekend, when I noticed that his toes were almost appearing through his gym shoes, I decided it was time to go shoe shopping.  The first place I stopped - Once Upon A Child.  I had little hope.  Because finding anything for boys - specifically shoes for an 8 yr old...is almost non-existent.  I can find dainty little dresses for Moo girl all day long - but a decent shirt without a stain or rip in a size 8... that's always questionable.

I am so glad I went!

Someone else must have just outgrown their barely worn Air Jordans...because I hit the motherload!



 My boys favorite pair was the Nike black and yellow ones...they are a size too large.  But, fall will be here before you know it.  I got Moo girl a pair of black Air Jordans...how cute is that?  I got that boy 7 pairs of shoes, in a variety of sizes, Nike and Air Jordans.

After experiencing this happiness...I decided to press my luck in the boy clothes department...so glad I did!



I want the I Rock t-shirt!

After going through the boys I decided Moo girl needed shorts.  Again, I pat myself on the back...it was clearance day or something at Once Upon...because I did good!


This is a reminder of why I do resale! See that shirt?!  So glad I didn't pay full price.

I am the same way. I appreciate the thrill of the hunt. I hadn't ever thought about how finding used clothes for an 8 year old boy might be challenging...but it totally makes sense. Your haul was impressive. I love looking at good deals, thanks for sharing.
