Pin It This morning I checked something really quick and then turned off the computer. Instead, I cleaned all the bathrooms, scrubbed the tubs, cleaned the kitchen, dusted, vacuumed, got all the rugs in the washer. I'm still looking for this balance between blogging and life. I feel like I'm behind on everything. Ever since I started posting again about 1.5 month ago, I met so many wonderful people. I love to know about your life and how you manage your finances. I admire your strength and perseverance in working towards being debt-free or other financial goals. I enjoy reading about your frugal crafts, recipes and shopping trips.
The problem is that I feel like I don't do anything else any more. I'm constantly here on Blogger. How do you manage your day? How do you find time for everything that needs to be done? And how much time do you usually spend blogging? I'm still new to all of these, and I'll really appreciate your help.
On the other note, I hit jackpot in thrift stores yesterday! So far this winter my older kid managed to get wholes on the knees of three pairs of jeans!! I don't know what he's doing, crawling?? I was thinking of putting those fancy, cute patches at first but then I realized that he grew quite a bit in the last few months, so all his pants were getting too short anyway. So I decided to cut and hem them to turn into shorts for summer. And I started looking for new pants for him. I didn't want to buy brand-new jeans because I know, in summer he'll live in shorts anyway. I just needed something for the next couple of months. So on Wednesday I went to the dentist and stopped by Kid to Kid and DI in that area. Here's what I got:
DI- I picked up 1 pair of nice-looking jeans for $3. I was surprised that they actually sell some jeans with wholes on knees for $4!!! So it was a good find.
Kid to Kid-
1 striped shirt, size 6- clearanced to $1
1 striped shirt, size 8-clearanced to $1 (for when he's a little older)
1 pair black pants, size 6- clearanced to $1
1 navy polo shirt, size 6, brand new with tags- clearanced to $1
1 brand-new pair of navy Wrangler jeans- $5.99
1 red and black striped sweater( apparently, I like stripes :)- clearanced to $1
Total spent with tax: $14.47 which makes each item about $2 per piece. The jeans that I got are a little more expensive but they are new and a very nice quality. Now I just need to look into those patches that go inside on the knee to keep them to last longer!!
I think I might go to our local Kid to Kid tonight too to check them out. This other one had a winter clearance going( which for some reason include t-shirts and tank tops...), I wonder if ours has the same thing too.
Everyone, have a wonderful day and a great weekend!
