What I'm Looking For: September 2013

Here is a new month and a new list.  The last few trips to Goodwills in our area haven't been big hauls.  We have been walking out with just 1 or 2 finds.  It all balances out when I see how many items I've found for our children and our home this year.  

The best find we found in August was a Super Nintendo system for $9.99.  My son was thrilled with that of course!
Here is my list for September and Happy Thrifting to you all!

  1. Wonderful condition sneakers for my boys
  2. Anything I think might do well on ebay, if I get listing on there again.  
  3. A suede jacket for myself
  4. A jacket/coat for my eldest son (size 12/14)
  5. Kids books
  6. Pokemon plush toys for the boys

What I'm Looking For- June

I've been lucky to check out another Goodwill with my family last week in Athens TN.  We bought a mirror (not sure what I'll be doing with it!) and manga books.  Tonight in Dayton, TN, I bought some stuffed toys for my sons (sonic the hedgehog and an angry bird) and got light washed distressed jeans for myself and sandals from Italy.  Not bad for $10.

Now for what I'm keeping my eyes open for:
  1. Garbage Pail kids
  2. Manga books
  3. Thomas the tank trains
  4. Step2 or Little Tykes outdoor play stuff
Since there is nothing clothing related I'm looking for, I'll just leave my list at this. :)

What I'm Looking For- May 2013

With my husbands new work hours, I'm not getting out to thrift or yard sale that often- (we are a 1 car household).  But that's alright since we are overflowing with things in our home.  My donations have tapered off and I'm saying to myself- "Ok, I'm good on shorts, don't need anymore Nintendo toys, enough with baby clothing".  I shopped on ebay a few times this week for fun and have to say it's a pleasure to search for good deals and have them shipped pretty fast.

So without further ado, my May list!

  1. Sunglasses- I broke mine! Oops!
  2. Boys swim trunks (size 10, size 7/8)
  3. Garbage Pail kids- for me!
  4. Check out the jewelry counters!
  5. T-shirts/tops for myself
  6. Flats or sandels
  7. T-shirts for my daughter
  8. An umbrella or 2- never have one when I need one!
  9. Baby board books
  10. An outdoor toy for the spring/summer

One of my favorite finds this year!

See what cool things you can find at the thrift!  This Thomas the Train ride on toy was 3.99 with working batteries.  The bottom needed to be dusted off good, looked like he'd been in a basement for awhile.  :)
I found this earlier this year, in the kids clothing section.  Some little person must have rode it over away from where the ride on toys are typically kept.  My 16 month old son loves it!

What I'm Looking For- APRIL 2013

Been spending most of our days spring cleaning.  I don't have the shopping bug as much now, seeing how much we already own.  So I'm a bit more mellow but still shopping at least 1x a week.  It's yard sale season again which is fun for finding less picked over items.

Here are a few things I'm keeping my eyes peeled for.
  1. A sunhat (in very clean condition)
  2. Flats for myself
  3. Vintage costume jewelry
  4. Garbage Pail Kids
  5. Sesame Street and Thomas the Tank books/toys
  6. Light weight long sleeved tops for myself
  7. A new bag- I'm open to any style
  8. Anything to resell on ebay that I have a good feeling about.

Thrifted Look- Afternoon at the Aquarium

This is my thrifted outfit from Saturday.  We had beautiful weather and went to the Chattanooga TN Aquarium.  My top, pants (Fossil brand), and purse (Wilsons Leather) were all thrifted from Goodwill.

More donations going out

This weekend is another donation time for me.  I'm bagging up shoes, more outgrown kids clothing, and anything else that isn't useful right now.  Feels good!
I've been putting off having a yard sale for ages.  It's just easier and more worth my time to donate.

Goodwill Find- from 2009

Wanted to share a quick photo, so quick it's blurry!  This is a sweater dress I've had in my closet for years.  Wore it out today for errands and wanted to share.  I bought it full Goodwill price- 7.99 and put some patterned tights from Hot Topic with it.
