Black Friday, Goodwill and more



I'm joining Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday.

I told my family members I must need my head checked. I actually went out on Black Friday. However, I didn't leave the house until 9 a.m. so I had less chance of getting trampled to death (I actually heard of that happening last year.) I was lucky enough to find the things I was looking for though - two pairs of pajamas for the kids from the WalMart $3 sale and two leapster games ($11 minus the $4 IP coupons) and a Cootie game for the kids from the Target sale. I just wish they would have had some of the items that are on my kids wishlist this year in the sale but unfortunately they didn't.

On the way out of town I couldn't resist a stop by Goodwill. I found DD a skirt for $1.99 and my other two buys as shown below. . .



I found this leather Polo bag for $3.99 - funny thing it had a sticker on the inside that said $435. I wonder if that was what it actually cost brand new????



DD is my lovely model today and is showing off my ceramic pumpkin basket I bought for fall next year and a grand total of .99.

Finally, the best thing of all - my kids jumping on a trampoline that a dear friend of ours gave to us. Total - FREE and PRICELESS - gotta love it.



Unfortunately, the hadn't gave us the chance to get the safety net up yet - they were so excited they just had to get on. Please ignore my SIL's mobile home in the back - LOL - it wanted to be pictured too.

Happy Thrifting everyone.

If that briefcase is leather, $435 could have initially been the MSP.

I braved the crowds too, but stuck with the antique shops and Goodwill. The Goodwill had a fabulous sale at everything 50% off. WE were there an hour! I bet the kids will LOVE the trampoline. Thanks for coming to visit and have a beautiful Sunday!

Glad you were able to make some good buys. Your kids are the ones who got the best deal, though! :D
