Thrifting



So I totally love thrift/second-hand stores. Here in Utah, the most common thrift store is Deseret Industries also known as the D.I., this one is run by the LDS Church. I buy most of the kid's clothes at thrift stores, because I don't want to spend the extra money on brand new stuff. I buy a lot of things for super cheap, like $2-4 an item. Here are just a few of the things that I scored this last trip.

These are all so far for Cheyenne. I am working on putting together a wordrobe for her for when she goes to kindergarten. I like to shop for a few months least in order to find stuff
for really good prices and nice pieces

So far she loves it all and wants to wear it now. I spent a total of $8 on these three pieces. I thought that was an awesome price for what I got. Now I will put some leggings with them and they will be really cute outfits.

There are a few things I look for with Chey. She loves pink and bugs (including spiders, eww) and flowers. She also loves wearing dresses, I just don't get it. We have a few problems we have to get around, Chey has a bootie and as she says "I have a Buddha belly, like Grandpa". She is not fat, and her belly is getting smaller, the older that she gets, yay. But for now her belly pushes her pants down far enough, that we have a crack issue. She also has hips, so it is really hard to find jeans that aren't to tight. She is the hardest to buy clothes for.

Any way, I have already
got a stockpile started for her, now I just have to get to work on Dakota. Chey can't wait to wear her "school clothes". I love the fact that thrifted clothes are already shrunk and softer than new ones. They weren't as expensive, so I don't have to worry about the kids destroying them. I also don't really need "play clothes"
