Thrifty Thursday: Buy Ahead!

It's Thrifty Thursday! Be excited, very excited. It was a wonderful thrift trip this week to Savers on Monday.

Thrifty Thursday' Tip of the Week: Buy ahead for your children! When plugging through the racks always look for things that will fit your child next season, next year or years after. I keep a large tupperware container in the back of the baby's closet full of ' next season' finds. It is currently stocked with items ranging from 18months, 2T, and 3T. It will save you a ton of money as you won't have to shop during the season, i.e .buying spring clothes now. Stores prey on the ' buy it now' parents. I know... sick!

In purchasing ahead we have found some wonderful pieces that set the tone for my son's wardrobe, then we fill in with newly purchased items like t-shirts and socks.

If you are worried about your little one not fitting into the clothes that you buy ahead remember many clothing companies make ' grow with me' options like extra cuffs, waists that cinch with elastic and longer hems.

Thrifty Thursday Report: This week we had some wonderful finds:
-L.L. Bean Polo shirt
- Old School GAP grandpa style sweatshirt with buttons ( SO cool!)
- Really cool camo cargos
-soft Old School Gap grey shirt
-Fleece Gymboree pants
- Numerous books ( including ' Peeka Hoo' our new fav)


A horrible looking kids table with Go Diego, Go! painted on it for $4.99... stay tuned for the makeover!
