Super Savings Saturday - $25.50 for kids' clothes

Saturday at our house is "Errands Day" - we run all our errands including grocery stores, bank, post office, drug stores, and any clothes shopping that we need to do.  Today was the garage sale for our Community Education Family classes group, held at one of the local schools.  I didn't go right when it opened because I knew the crowds would be huge and I didn't want to fight them.  I arrived about an hour and a half after they opened and got several things:

For Missy:  Pink Pants, Teal long-sleeve T-shirt, Denim shorts, Navy knit shorts, a pair of red knit pants and matching top, and that really cute white denim skirt pictured on top.


For buddy: Brown Corduroys, Tan Pants, Star Wars Lego Pajama, and Spider Man Pajamas.


My find of the day!  For Buddy: A 100% Wool suit for $1


These three adorable baby outfits are a gift for a baby shower.

Total Spent at the Garage Sale for All of the Above:  $25.50





And the Groceries!  I took $60 out of my $80 for this two week period because I need to get Kleenex, soap, and crackers for the snack donation at school.  That leaves me with $20 for next week plus the $3 I didn't spend today!
