A few months ago I started stopping in at the Salvation Army Thrift Store, mainly just to see all the items people were purging from their homes and lives. That in itself is fascinating.
I found a few toys for my grandchildren. Then I found some drinking glasses identical to the ones we had when first married 39 years ago. I was able to get two new sets.
Then the weather turned cold and I was on the lookout for coats for kids at the elementary school where I volunteer one afternoon a week. That’s when l learned about discount days for kids’ clothing–75% off.
Lately I’ve been searching for summer clothes for my grandkids who will be spending at least one week with us this summer when the temperatures will soar to over 100. They don’t have a lot of lightweight clothing as it’s much cooler, year-round, on the coast than here.
Last week I got a dress and pants for Leeya as well as 2 shirts and 2 pants for Judah for $4. This week I got a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt, 3 shorts and pjs for Judah and a pair of pants for Leeya for $3.
Here areLeeya’s things:
These are for Judah:
Some of these appear to have never been worn. The red swim trunks have a small 3-corner tear, but they will be fine for playing in the sprinklers.
