It's raining and cold here, so people were ready to practically hand you stuff and let you just take it. I called in sick to work today- still running a fever and can't talk above a whisper, but that didn't stop me heading out for a few minutes (was gone less than 2 hours and most of that was driving time to Virden/Girard area)

I got:

5 pairs of jeans- .25 each. Some like new, some showing some wear- but my boys will wear them in the strawberry patch this summer.

Tops for me and MIL- .25 each. Her's still has the tags on it.

A huge grocery sack of brand name girl's clothes- Gymboree, OshGosh, Carters. $1 for the bag. Only one outfit has a tiny stain, the rest seem like new.

Sippy cups- .10 and .25 each

Toddler push toy that plays music- looks new $1

Sack of paperback books- $1

For free:

metal trays- one with a Currier and Ives print on it. I'll use these for Christmas cookie giving.

several pairs of socks for me- in good shape, just a bit faded.

some cassette tapes- oldies but goodies

A huge trash bag filled with Christmas garlands

A bag full of quilt batting- some cut in small pieces that will make potholders, some bigger pieces that will make crib sized quilts.

I got

* about 8 Polly Pockets for $0.25 each.
* 2 tupperware containers (w/ lids) -- one was $0.25 and one was $0.50.
* a brass desk lamp (which we needed for our piano) -- for $1.

But I had the kids with me, so (of course), they brought home junk toys.
