Thriftin' on Thursday

Ladies, I have scored some AWESOME deals this week!

On Monday, the hubs and I went to Value Village since they had their 50% sale going on.  
C'mon, the stuff is cheap to  begin with... how could I resist it being even cheaper!?
{I usually only get there maybe twice a year, but I like to make it worth the trip} 
We got someone to watch the kids and away we went!  I figured it would be busy, and I sort of wanted to be able to "browse" at a more "leisurely" pace... the kids would have put a kink in that particular plan!  ;)
It was crazy busy, so it wasn't quite as leisurely as I'd hoped, but I still managed to walk away with some cute things!

For myself, I picked up...

a skirt
a dress
a pair of shorts {didn't realize until I got home that they were "Bitten" by Sarah Jessica Parker! sweet!}
a pair of pants
3 tops
3 pairs of earrings
1 necklace

For him, I picked up...

4 pairs of jeans
1 pair of black pants

Our grand total.... 

$58

Squeal!!!!

And then yesterday, on a whim, I decided to go through my closet... anything that I hadn't worn in the past 6 months was outta here!  Including a couple pairs of shoes that I've been having a hard time parting with...
So off I went to a local thrift shop, with 2 huge bags to donate. 
I purposedly didn't bring any extra cash, BUT when I got there, I came across a couple shirts that I loved...
I only had about $4.73 in  my wallet.  
And Memphis had picked up a few little toys.
I sheepishly asked the lady at the counter how much my 3 tops and his 3 toys would come up to...
pkeeping my fingers crossed that it would be less than $4.73, right?
Well, $4.10 later I was a very happy gal!

Oh, and it's Thursday... so the church basement is opened all day. 
I think I'll be paying them a visit as well!
