A Thrifting We Will Go

So Miss Baby and I went to the doggy thrift store today and spent a whopping $1.75

.50 for a book to hopefully help me to organize

.75 for four small containers. Perfect size for Miss Baby's homemade baby food

.50 for two small baby toys

Miss Baby got to spend some time with her best friend at the park yesterday. We had a great time strolling around town in this double stroller.

We are hitting some yard sales tomorrow... we'll let you know what we find!

Dump Shopping, Baby Food Makin' Kinda Day

Hello there! I've got some great treasures to share with you from our favorite place.. THE DUMP !

Miss Baby and I were out Kalouping this morning. She drove us in her little red wagon.

Miss Baby and I took a visit to our local recycling center and found some great stuff. A ton of clothes from J Crew and H&M for our friend who is a skinny mini and some great clothes for her son from Old Navy about 12 pieces in all. Our loot included this fabulous wool jacket from JCrew. Our pile has clothing pieces ranging from skirts to dresses and tops. I also found a candle stick with a price tag of $13.95 from Pier One. A couple of magazines, and a bath toy from carters for miss baby.

The pictures were taken hastily it was lunch time for Miss Baby and when that girl wants to eat she wants to eat NOW. After Miss Baby settled down for a snooze to dream about all of our great finds, i steamed some fruits and pureed them. Baby food is way to expensive and I like to know what my kiddo is eating so that is my frugal mom attempt. Im glad the heat has broken maybe I can attempt to do one of projects on my to do list.

Busy Busy Bee

Hey there blog friends I am still alive I promise! Things have been busy here on Fairview Ave. Miss Baby and I have been spending alot of time doing this: Playing outside with Bailey, and swimming.

We also have been doing alot of home improvements lately. When my foot decided to fall through the decking hubby convinced me it was time to put new decking down. Let me tell you he got the motherload of all deals, he got all the banisters, spindles, railing pieces (composite decking) an $1100 for $68 on clearance. I think my frugalness is rubbing off on him! Here is the before.... The after is soon to come!

I did have a chance to hit up the dump today. Now im a tad bit upset. This dump picking thing is a new trend. Let me tell you i've been picking the dump for years and have never seen it this busy! Here is what I got today: No its not a webber but its in damn good condition. I had to crawl alittle into the metal pile and I may need a new tetanus shot in my hand but it was worth it. Miss Baby also got some new books at the dump store. I wiped them down with clorax wipes and they're good to go. I may keep the Easter one for her Easter basket next spring. It looks brand new!

Well I'll leave you with a picture of my thrifty fourth of July decorations. I bought them at yard sales last year. Aren't they cute??
