Super-saver shopping!

It's Kids Exchange time again. Believe it or not, I drove home from vacation to shop the sale--it truly saves us that much money. Since I came home alone, I shopped the sale alone for the first time. Boy, did I miss the help of my hubby!! I was able to get Eli's entire winter wardrobe, including shoes and outerwear. It's a little harder to shop for Jacob at consignment sales. Boys his age tend to be harder on clothes, so there aren't as many to choose from. I was able to snag 3 pairs of jeans, some great shirts, and a fleece for him!

Even with our wagon, it was difficult for me to haul everything without Matt. We typically shop with our stroller and a cart which is the space; so, I didn't get as many toys as usual. I did get a couple of good deals. I purchased this Bounce and Spin Zebra for $10 and a Noah's Ark for $3 (I think the amazon price is so high because the toy is now considered a collectible). I also got this garage and ramp toy for $4.

All totaled, I got 47 items for $157.

Not too bad, not too bad at all!!!

So, if you're local, you might want to check it out. Kids Exchange runs through Sunday!
