I love to garage sale. Love it! I used to search for things for our home, but now it's all about the kids clothes. Henry is set for this summer and next winter because I was able to find great end of the season clearance clothes last year, but I didn't do that for Harper because I wanted to wait and see how big she was. This means she needs some winter things and I've been on an unsuccessful mission...until today! So, here's the deal. I sold this travel bed on Craigslist for $30 ( I got it at a garage sale last year for $2.50-and decided we don't need it.)

And in exchange got ALL these clothes at 2 different garage sales today!

If you can't quite make out the awesome-ness, let me break it down for you:
1 skirt
9 dresses
2 onsies
3 jackets
7 pants
3 sweaters
6 footed pjs
9 tops
1 pr of shoes
1 baby doll
1 BRAND NEW box of diapers (only $3!)
All for $30!
One of the sales had most everything for .25 or .50 cents. The kind where you almost felt bad for getting things so cheap, but she said she just wanted to get rid of it. Okay! I can help with that. The other was half off today, so whole outfits were only $1.50. There are some Target brand things, but most is Baby Gap, Gymboree, Carters, or Old Navy. It's also all in hardly used condition. Sweetness!
Probably half is for 18-24, but the rest will hopefully work for this fall/winter/next spring. Now with this and a few other sales I've hit this year, I think we're ready.
Harper was so excited that she.....
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Woofta girl - I'm going to have to start paying you to do my shopping!

And I must say...I'm glad the diapers are BRAND NEW and not USED. :) You're too funny - I just had to laugh.

Happy Weekend!
