Crazy lady shopping..

The crazy lady shopping has started.  Only, because I'm cheap and like to make a dollar stretch as far as possible, we've been bargain shopping!
I found a great consignment shop that's new in town.  The shop is huge, clean, doesn't get better than that!
J and I went yesterday evening and found this:

Tommy Hilfiger overalls, Gymboree polo body suit, black turtleneck onesie, Old Navy thermal onesie...STILL WITH TAGS ON! A pack of NEVER OPENED newborn onsies, a Chaps button up, and a Carter's shirt with TAGS STILL ON that read $20 retail
We got all of it for less than $30 with tax!

Then, on my lunch break today, we went to the mall
Our Dillards is turning into an outlet store, and is 50-65% off everything.  Right now there's an abundance of winter clothes, which we'll need because Pierce will be 3 months in December.  It doesn't always get ice cold in Alabama in December, but sometimes it really does.  So, we are getting prepared:

A navy blue (pic does it no justice) peacoat with matching mittens and hat!  Regularly $25, we got it for $8.24
Since they had so much winter stuff, we found cute Christmas stuff.  We're not BIG on the idea of dressing him in all kinds of cutie-patootie stuff, so this was right up my alley.  The onesie under the bib just has a screenprinted chest pocket that says Santa's Helper and has some candy canes sticking out.  So, festive and cute, without being ridiculous!

Again, this 4 piece set is normally $25, we got it for $8!
$50 worth of clothing, for under $20 with taxes.  
He's going to be one styling little guy and it'll look like we spent a ton of money on his clothes, but we won't!  I just don't see the sense in spending TONS of money on kids clothes that they'll grow out of, especially baby clothes.  Not at the rate babies grow!!

We're still waiting on some winter clearance we ordered from Monday night as soon as we found out that Baby is Pierce!


  1. He is gonna be so snazzy! Too bad he'll never be as cute as H!

    HAHAHA! ;)

  2. OH My Goodness those outfits are adorable! I'm sure I'll be shopping like crazy when we start having kids.

    1. Seriously, hit up clearance and sales! It's amazing the amount of stuff we've been able to get

  3. It's so fun baby shopping isn't it? Your so smart not to spend a ton. My son got things for our baby shower that he outgrew before he ever wore. They just grow way too fast!

  4. Wow you got some great stuff! I love shopping consignment or stuff for cheap. I hate paying full price
