I am a frequent shopper at Salvation Army thrift stores.  They reward me for my patronage.  I wish other thrift stores would do the same.  At the Salvation Army stores in my area, they offer a Super Shopper Club card.  Basics of the card are for every 10 dollars you spend, you get 1 stamp on your card.  Collect 10 stamps and you can redeem your card for a $5 bag full of clothes.

I have been holding onto my full card for several weeks now.  The past few times I have gone to the Salvation Army, I have not found many clothing items, at least not enough to justify the $5 bag.  I did not want to waste my card!  Today my patience paid off.  I stuffed all of the following items into one plastic shopping bag, normal size. 

 

Gifts for Others:

– 1 shirt for my cousin, Wendy

– 2 shirts for my cousin, Bess

– 1 blouse for my Mom

– 1 blouse for my friend, Katie

– 3 dresses, 3 bibs, 1 hat, 4 bloomers, 5 pants, and 11 onesie outfits for my future niece

 

Clothing for Pete:

– 2 t-shirts

 

Clothing for Cason:

– 1 pair of shorts

– 2 onesie outfits

 

Clothing for Me:

– 2 tank tops for exercise/work-outs

– 7 short-sleeve blouses

– 1 pair cargo shorts

– 1 skirt

 

All of those clothes for $5!  Awesome!  If you have a Salvation Army thrift store in your area, find out if they have a Super Shopper card program.  If you are in the Florence, Alabama area, the locations in Florence and Sheffield both honor the cards.  I love the fact they have some type of frequent shopper program and I wish other thrift stores would do the same.

 

I went to the Blue Door Thrift Store on Tuesday.  I do not frequent this thrift store that often (it is on the other side of town), but I try to stop in about once a month.  I bought several items, but the best one was for my baby, Cason.  I have been looking for a walker/bouncer exerciser for him for the past few weeks.  I have seen many, but most have been very dirty and/or missing several pieces.  I came across a Graco Lights and Sound Walker and it was in fabulous condition.  There was a mommy-to-be looking it over as I spotted it from a distance.  She took a few steps past it and I calmly walked swooped in for it.  $15 and it was in great condition!  Yes, I was giddy with excitement and could not wait to get in home, clean it, sanitize it, and try it out with Cason. 

 

He L-O-V-E-D it!!!  Check out a few of his pics in his new apparatus. 

 

 

Found anything good at the thrift stores lately?  I would love to hear about it if you have! 

 

Toodles,
