and hit the jackpot!

Oldest dd is plus-sized. When we stopped at Salvation Army today, all their clothing was 1/2 off. Someone in her size must have recently donated clothing. I found:
2 C.J. Banks pants
2 Jones New York Sport velour pants
1 Cato blouse
1 Lane Bryant pants
2 St. Johns Bay long sleeve t-shirts
9 other plus-sized tops
2 other plus-sized pants
1 plus-sized fleece jacket

Also found:
1 pair of mens Dockers dress pants
1 Arizona brand jeans for teen boys
1 pair of teen boys Levis
1 pair of Roundtree & York men's cords
1 pair of men's jeans
1 pair of shoes for ds (8)
1 audiobook for dh
2 vidoes for the kids
3 books for dd
1 pair knit leggings for dd#2
1 teen boys Adidas brand coat
1 large toy airplane for youngest sons to play with
2 hats

and paid $40.75 total!

Everything was in great condition. Some of the tops for oldest dd looked like they had never been worn. It's rare to find clothing for her secondhand. This will take her through this year and next, hopefully.

Thanks! One of the pairs of C. J. Banks pants still had the store tags attached.

I forgot to add that I also found 4 packages of shoelaces. Someone must have donated old store stock, because they had a whole rack of them.

Nice. There's a consignment shop that just opened near me recently. I think I may go in there to look around. We have a couple of TJ Maxx/Marshalls around me but the stock in the consignment store appears to be different. Didn't see much in the way of clothes.

We were in again yesterday looking for a book. They didn't have one, but the clothes were still 1/2 off.

I found:

For dd#1: 2 Dress Barn sweaters for $1/each

Dh and ds#3: several pairs of jeans also for $1/each.

For myself: sweater, pair of pants, and capris, again $1 a piece.

For dd#2: a pair of snow boots $2

Dd#1 has been wearing her new clothes to school and church this week. They fit well and seem to be comfortable. We're thankful she's been so willing to wear them since they are "new" to her. She's autistic and has had trouble adjusting to new clothing in the past.
