I need to swing by there again today. We're lucky that we have 4 close to us - 1 is great, one is for-profit and a little pricier but has nice stuff, one is VERY pricey and their kids clothes are awful (seriously I've never seen a pair of kids jeans in there that weren't ripped - and I don't mean a small hole!) but their ladies clothes are awesome, and the 4th is new so I haven't scoped it out much yet. Both kids have jumped up a size and DD is now the same size as her older brother in pants so I can't pass down his shorts from last year this time.
Over the past 2 months I've spent about $150-$180 at the thrift stores, but I've gotten SO MUCH! They have their ENTIRE spring and summer wardrobes plus a few things to tide over until the warm weather is here to stay (DD has few pants that fit! Jumped from a 4t to a 6 in 2 months - OUCH! LOL!).
DH has gone up a size and most his t-shirts (a staple for him) are fallng apart. I've gotten a good half dozen new ones for him that may have been worn once, and they're the nicer ones like Ralph Lauren Polo and Chaps, US Polo Assoc., Nike, etc. - $2 each!
We were able to find DS a headboard for his bed. $4 + a little bit of the tinted Old English and it looks NEW.
Both kids are huge into Pokemon, and I found 6 of the older videos for $1 each - plus I scored a tv/vcr comb for each of their rooms! One had the remote with it and was $19, the other didn't have the remote and was $15. (We're trying everything we can to get them over being "afraid" to be alone in their rooms, they can only watch movies and play the VSmile on them.)
I've also scored a deluxe Breadman breadmaker for $5 (with manuals, etc - maybe used once?), a foot spa for DH for $3 (brand new - it was something he needed), a couple pairs of shoes for me (I'm super picky about this, but there weren't even any wear creases and the original stickers were completely intact!), and thermos's for the kid's lunches. Oh yeah, and a beautiful red and black long wool coat for DD for winter for $5!
I find as a side effect of thrift store shopping I get almost physically ill going into someplace like Dillard's and even considering paying $20 for a pair of jeans for a 4 or 6 yr old! LOL!
