Yard Sale Finds

Last night was a rough one, but when Logan woke me up at seven, I couldn't resist hitting some yard sales instead of going back to bed like I usually would. It was pretty slim pickin's today, and every yard sale I found was amazingly crowded no matter how dinky it was (where were all these people when I had my yard sale??).
I did manage to find Mike some shirts though. He is so picky about his clothes, but he hates to go shopping. Nearly every time I've bought him new shirts or pants, he's hated them and ends up not wearing them. The result is that the shirts he does wear are completely worn out. So I figured I'd stop buying him new stuff and just see what I could find at yard sales. That way if he doesn't like them, we're only out a couple bucks. So here's what I found:

I got a wool sweater to make a soaker and some longies for Logan, a Chaps polo shirt, a Quest polo shirt, and a Dockers dress shirt all for $4.

I also found a Children's Place sweater for Logan, but I'm not sure if he'll be big enough to wear it before winter's over. If he's not, I can always take it to Once Upon a Child. :) And I found this Leapfrog phonics train set for Gehrig for $4.

It was a pretty successful day, and if Mike likes the shirts, I saved us about $40. And that's what I'm all about! Poor Logan got worn out from everyone exclaiming how cute he was. :)
