Bonnie Hunter would be proud of me!

Didn't get much sewing done last week at all.

But this week promises to be better.  Well, the last half of this week anyway, considering this is Wednesday.  I had to bring some old skinny clothes to the Purple Cow, which is like Goodwill but with better prices).  And I ended up with some bargains.  When I got home I realized I still had the old clothes in my back seat.  Duh!

I scored 4 pairs of shorts of various colors for $2.99 each.  White Stag brand so I know they were not cheap stuff in their previous life.  And two pairs of stretch knit pants for my mom at $2.50 each.  The nursing home is always losing her stuff so it is hard to keep things in her closet.  So I just find things like this and know they will lose them anyway somewhere along the line.

The biggest and bestest thing I got was the men's shirts from the 99 cent rack.  I got 10 shirts, all great plaids and 100% cotton for $10! 

Maybe even better and bigger than that was the Spanx I found for $2.99!  Yeah, buddy, shorts and Spanx, I am hot and rolling this summer!

Then I had a card that got me 20% off the entire order so I walked out with 10 shirts, 2 pants and 4 pairs of shorts AND Spanx for $24.  Can't beat that with a stick.

Now I am going to buy a lottery ticket!


  1. LOL - at least you didn't buy back the things you took (but didn't leave).

  2. You sound like me! Last time I went to Goodwill the young man asked the three (VERY obviously senior) ladies in front of me if they got the "discount". You must be 55 to get the discount. When I laid my jeans on the counter he didn't ask-he just gave me the discount! I didn't know whether to be happy or sad!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
