What I'm Looking For: JANUARY

Haven't given much thought to what I'm looking for, this month went by very fast.  I found so many awesome things that weren't even on my last list, isn't that how it is though?  
Ideas for the new month and new year...
  1. Dressy black, brown, grey or navy shoes. Smaller heeled that what I already own.
  2. A winter coat for my 12 month old, who is wearing 18-24 months.
  3. Pants for my 8 year old, size 7/8 boys
  4. Long sleeved light weight tops (Express has nice ones a couple years back). For layering and going into spring.
  5. A purse/bag
  6. Jeans for me, size 4/6 depending on brand
  7. Anything towards my daughters cosplay outfits
  8. Books
  9. Super Mario toys (especially the plush ones)

Thrifty musings for the new month.

Wow, can't believe it's December already!  This time last year I was almost 9 months pregnant and waiting on my Christmas baby.  He was born December 26th at 7:45am, just missed Christmas.  
I've had a great year thrifting.  80% of my maternity clothes were thrifted and 75% of the babies clothing has been thrifted.

One of my latest finds is this baby jacket from Le Top for 2.49.

Also picked up some cute clothing for my daughter.  The blue top is from Express 2.49.  The brick red top is Simply Vera 2.49.  And the black light weight coat w/o tag was 3.99.
