I think I've mentioned on occasion that I'm NOT a fan of maternity clothes. In fact, I only buy those maternity items that I feel I ABSOLUTELY need. In this case that turns out to be 2 maternity jeans, 2 maternity leggings, 1 belly band, 2 maternity jackets (since I am in a winter pregnancy) and that's it my friends! Everything else I bought as non-maternity, one size larger, and in a style that I hope I can use post-pregnancy. If not, I can give the clothes to my mommy :)
There's been a winter chill in the air, and I knew the time had come to look for some sweaters. Lately I've had a weird desire to go thrifting for clothes. So last week I did just that.
Pulling up to the parking lot, I wondered why the lot was so full. I spent my time digging through the racks, which easily exhausted me - the pregnant lady. I was happy with my finds: 2 sweaters (Old Navy, Nine West), 1 shirt (H&M), 1 herringbone jacket, and 1 pair of cargo pants for my little guy.
As the lady rang me up at the counter I noticed the machine would display "Discount" after every scan. I looked around and saw a gi-normous sign that said, "SALE: 40% off everything in the store!"
I am a marketer's worst nightmare, I swear. No wonder the parking lot was full! In the end, my thrift store haul totaled $18.60. Success! I think I'm a changed woman and will be thrifting again sometime very soon!
