Loving a good deal...

I love a good deal... so much that sometimes I convince myself I need something that I don't really need because it is such a good deal and I don't want anybody else to beat me to it :) This is very noticeable at children's consignment sales. I love to look through all of the clothes for all three of my boys and pick out great clothes for a great price. It doesn't bother me at all to buy used kids clothes because I know if they destroy the clothes, I didn't pay more than $2 for an entire outfit. I can clothe all three boys for the winter for $100 and have all of them have way more clothes than I have in my closet. It has gotten so bad that now I give myself a huge pat on the back when I put back an outfit or two because I showed such "restraint". The best part is when I get home, I get to show David each of the outfits individually and tell him what a great deal it actually is :) I don't think he enjoys this game as much as I do. I still have a laundry basket of clothes from this weekend's sales because I haven't gotten to show them to David. Don't get me wrong, he is able to fake enthusiasm sometimes... but mostly he says, "Do our boys really need this many clothes?" He also mentions that he hates putting Hunter in overalls... but how can anyone resist a little boy in overalls... I was pleased... this weekend, I only bought Hunter two pairs of overalls... I call that - IMPROVEMENT


  1. OMG, this is sooooo the same thing at my house. Too funny! Kid's Market comes in 2 weeks and I am working on my stretching exercises to get ready!!!! Laundry basket pulled by a belt to haul everything around while shopping! =)

  2. Oh my gosh... that is EXACTLY what I do... next year I may have to come over for Kids' market... what is that exactly?!?!?!
