I love thrift stores!

Yesterday I headed to Texas Thrift with mom and kids in tow. What a fun day!!

I ended up with 9 items for eBay auctions and a small item for each kid. My daughter got a new Hello Kitty washcloth and my son got a Spiderman plate. Total spent on kids $1.37! Anyway, my overall total was $17, or $1.89 for each eBay item. I just rolled the kid's items in.

My mom spent less than $5, and got a hat and 2 pairs shorts for my son and a skirt and book for my daughter. Needless to say they were so excited about the trip. Kids have no clue if you spent $100 or $.50, so why spend $100?

Once I got home I quickly looked up some of my items. I used an "advanced search" to look at similar completed auctions. Looks like I'll turn that $17 into about $125. Not bad for a nice afternoon with family!

Mom even treated us to lunch at Chick-fil-A, yum!!

Last but not least, Mom and I each got our Hershey's chocolates at CVS with our rain checks. We're ready for next week. Speaking of CVS, I realized yesterday there is one conveniently located next to my daughters pre-school. She only goes twice a week, so damage should be minimal. Funny I never noticed the CVS before...

Anyway, since I took my eBay pictures and washed the items yesterday, I'm ready to post the items today....that is when I find a chance.

P.S. The chocolate cluster Post cereal was indeed good!
