Last Thursday, I looked for my little pumpkin costume for BB to wear for Halloween. It wasn't in either of the places where the costumes are stored. I determined that I must have given it aways quite a while ago; it's been years since I used it. So Friday morning, getting another costume for BB was on the to-do list.
I decided to go to a local upscale children's resale shop to try to save money over Wal*mart. I found an adorable pumpkin outfit for $5. But when I went to pay, I was told costumes were 60% off and all infant clothing 24 mo and smaller was 50% off. Since BB has no size 12 mo clothes and I'm sure he will outgrow his new 9 mo clothes by Christmas, I looked at the boys 12 mo rack. When I left the store, in addition to the costume, I had 4 sleeper pjs, 1 jacket, a 3 piece Christmas outfit, another 3 piece church outfit, a sweater, 3 l/s shirts that snap, 4 pair of pants, and a one piece outfit. Total bill: $39.60
It was definitely the deal of the day!
