Bargainmania!!!!!!!

I'm a sucker for a bargain! 

I'm a clearance shopper/coupon user/sale consumer! 
I love thrift stores,

flea markets, 

and garage sales! 

And I love love love to come home and share my "bargain" with the fam! They don't seem to get as excited as I do! 
Last Saturday, #2 daughter and I were going to Saturday Surplus and the flea markets for therapy. As we were driving, I saw a garage sale of a friend who I had her daughter in 3rd grade. She has since had another daughter and so was selling her baby clothes! I did a "slamonthebrakes" and pulled in!

It was a beautiful day and so Haley and I sat on the concrete driveway and went through TUBS of baby GIRL clothes! Excellent condition...very gently worn!!  Oh joy to my heart! It was so fun and after much time had passed... the infamous line used in our family came rolling out of Haley's mouth....

"MOM you are out of control!"

So I took a deep breath and stopped! But I could of done more damage! 

Here are some pictures of my adorable goodies I got for my granddaughter-to-be

Now I want you to guess what I paid for all these! (That's the game I like to play at my house!) And I'll let you know at the end of the pictures! 















And the grand total......

$21.70

A sidenote....I'm fascinated by "Extreme Couponers"! I would love to have the time to learn to be one! What an awesome feeling to go to the grocery store and spend pennies for such an enormous amount of goods in so many carts. Does anyone do that or do you know the trick to it? It seems like for sure you have to go to a grocery store that doubles coupons.

That's a great deal! When our daughter was young we hit all the garage sales and consignment shops and did very well! Happy you're having a granddaughter! Girls are always so much fun to dress up and she looks like she's well on her way to being the best dressed baby girl! Thanks for finding me! Your blog is very nice! I'll be back!

Oh Tanya, first of all congratulations on getting a granddaughter! How much fun you are going to have with her! I can see you already are with the shopping! I can so see me doing the same thing! :) She's going to be a very well dressed baby and have a wonderful doting grandma (what do you want to be called?).

And I was doing some adding in my head as I scrolled down and I had guessed $30 being a good price for all of that. You did really well! Ok...I'll have to be on the look out for you now! I just came across a great yard sale the other day and bought my two new nieces some adorable stuff including brand new looking high top (tiny) pink converse. They were precious!

You know I have 2 February babies! It's a good month!

Thanks for putting a smile on my face today! Congratulations again! So happy for your sweet family.....I know February is going to be a SWEET SEASON for sure!

Hugs and Blessings,
Tammy
