Almost ready

I was getting a little nervous because I wasn't finding any little girl clothes while I've been out garage sale shopping.  I literally had a handful of girl clothes, and all of them were too big for a newborn.  This weekend, despite the rain, and my increasing desire for staying in my bed longer each day (getting WAY more tired), I went out to see if I could get my luck to change.  I found all of this between 2-3 houses (plus some other small items) in a matter of an hour and wanted to share my spoils. We so could not afford to clothe our kids without garage sales, so I am grateful to finally have some clothes for Jadyn.  These clothes range from 0-24 months.

-17 Pajamas
-8 Shorts
-26 Pants
-18 Skirts
-3 Leggings
-8 Jeans
-15 Dresses
-2 Hats
-2 mitten pairs
-1 slipper pair
-1 bib
-9 diaper covers
-1 sock pair
-5 shoe pairs
-5 swimsuits
-14 jackets
-38 tops/shirts
-48 onesies
-2 blanket

Total items: 223

Total cost: $57     (If I would have bought even the shoes new, it would have cost me about this amount--JUST for the shoes)

Total cost per item: 25 cents


We are *almost* ready!

Okay- you need to call me the next time you hit garage sales. Faith is almost grown out of her 3-6 mos stuff and, we could definitely use stuff for later too- my husband doesn't care for shopping much, so it would be nice to have a buddy to go with! Also, if baby #2 is another girl, I definitely need more newborn stuff! You rock. You got some super cute stuff! Thanks for sharing!

Awesome loot! That is an amazing amount of stuff. I wouldn't have made it through Tal's first six months if it weren't for the similar loot you got for me! I seriously am like "THANK YOU MEGHAN" daily. :)

Wow! I wish you lived closer and I could go out with you some time. Addison needs some bigger clothes, but I just can't bring myself to do anything about it -- so we just stuff her into the 12/18 month pants that are at her knees now :)

Wow. This is very impressive. Nice work.

I am amazed! I love getting stuff at garage sales and consignment sales. Guess what? We should go together because I live in Las Vegas now! Can I get your address?
