Today's good find!

My family refers to me as the bargain queen. And on many occasions it is absolutely true. Today I scored these two dresses. They cost me exactly $10 plus tax. Total. For both. So, for hours of entertainment for my little princess, I'm thinking that it's so worth it. They are a bit on the big size 3/4, but she'll grow into them. Sooner rather than later. It's funny, because I was in that same store right around Halloween and these two dresses which I looked at then were priced at $14.99 each. Which is also the reason that I left them hanging there. $15 dollars, No. $5 dollars, yes. A definite yes. And I need to add that they were not halloween costumes either. I asked them very nicely if they were going to mark those down after halloween, and the lovely sales associate pointed out that they were not costumes, yet dress up dresses for little girls. But lookie lookie! They put them on sale anyway! We also bought Eddie a half of a costume for a vampire. Which includes the black and red satin cape and the shirt. It didn't come with pants, so we got it for $5. Still a good deal in my opinion.

Let's see, speaking of fabulous finds... I got these for free:

Yes, I saw a lady throwing these into the trash. So I took them. I know two little monkeys that would love to play with them! And so far, Eddie asks me every day if he can go outside and play with the cars. It seems that he is even a little on the big side for these cars, but he still enjoys them.

Also on my list of great deals is a wood train table for the kids. It was marked 75% off, being $19.88 or something like that, just under $20 bucks! I had been wanting one for the kids when they got a bit bigger, since my step-kids adored playing with trains for years! I couldn't believe it when I found it, so I struggled like mad to get that huge oversized hefty oblong box into the shopping cart. I used muscles I didn't know I had! I suppose I could have asked for assistance, but I woman, hear me roar!

I also bought a pair of Stride Rite shoes for Miss Alexa brand spanking new from Ebay for only $14 plus $4 for shipping. Still at $18 dollars for a pair of shoes that retail for $36, I did quite well!

I'm always finding great deals on clothes too. I have way too many examples to list. I just like to look around. Every time I show my dh something that I just bought, I ask him to guess how much I paid for it. His usual response: "Two dollars!" I guess he knows me! Ok, off to catch Grey's.
