Today has been a nice family day. Of shopping. Does that count as a family day?
We started off returning some thing at Ross that I didn't want and then ended up at the Once Upon a Child store near that. It is a used store with clothes, toys, and other kid gadgets. Their clearance was all $1 today. Seriously ONE dollar. We found some really good buys. I mean as with anything second hand, you might have to look for nice things, but when you find them, scoop them up and brag later on. A few of the things we found were brand new with tags still on... example a pair of Ralph Lauren shorts that were originally $30. The store had them marked to $10, and we got them for a buck. SCORE.
Next we had lunch at the mall and then headed to Yankee Candle. On the way there, a balloon artist was set up taking donations. Maddox LOVES balloons. So much. He chose a sword and within 10 minutes had popped the whole thing.
Back to Yankee...I love the soft blanket smell for Maddox's room, so I got a few tarts and was entered into a raffle. It was just me and one other lady. She won. I have the worst luck. Ever. :)
Then we made our way to Bath & Body Works and scored a few wall flowers and candles. uh the 3 wick candles were on sale for $12. I may be going back. The husband thinks that is still a lot for candles, but as we know, a good candle is worth every penny. Why get a cheap candle that you cant even smell??
Can you tell what the mall trip was for? LOL.
Next was Hobby Lobby. I had purchased a toy chest shelf unit for Maddox's room and a stool yesterday. Both were steals. The toy shelf was originally $240, and I got it for $48 and the stool was $50, and I got it for $10. However, the stool didn't go where I wanted it to so we returned that and browsed. We picked up a distressed mirror for the hallway, we will see if that fits later tonight.
Topped it off with a Frappuccino and Redbox visit.
Good day to be had by all.
