denim jeans

I haven’t done a Thrifty Thursday post in awhile. I haven’t done a lot of thrifting either. It might be because it’s too darn hot for garage sailing. It might be because my best thrifting buddy up and moved to California. (Hi Kelly!) Whatever the reason, I decided to remedy my situation last week at the 99 cent sale. My daughter was at camp and I spent the whole morning finding some pretty awesome deals.

I came home with six pairs of jeans, one brand new with the tags still on. The new pair is for me, the others are for my daughter. They are size seven. She’ll be the first to tell you that she’s only a size six. She doesn’t need size seven clothes. She’s not the only one in denial. I can’t believe my baby girl will be wearing size seven soon, either. But that’s what comes after six and I’m sure I’ll be happy to have these when she pops up another inch or two this winter.

Thrifting is a serious hit or miss adventure. Many times I go and come home empty handed. Maybe that’s the real reason I haven’t been hitting the stores lately. But then some days the stars are aligned just right and I score some great stuff. If the weather would just cool off a bit, I might just rediscover my thrifty spirit.

    “Hi” right back atchya Julie! Thrifting’s definitely not the same without you… I may venture out again soon, but the shops here don’t do 99c days!
