Some Thrifty Secondhand Buys

My youngest daughter was in need of some sports bras as well as more workout wear for her upcoming dance team practices.  At Wal-Mart I looked at what they had and found a cute pair of shorts for $6 and a super cute top on clearance for $7.  I gave it to her as a gift for making the team.  I am so very proud of her!

The sports bras were priced at $12.88 and she needed at least two.  I really didn't want to spend $26 on them so we did what we usually do.  We hit the thrift store and we found several nice ones priced at $2.99.  Three of them were the colored tag of the day so we got them for 50% OFF!  Whoo hoo!  She found a top she liked but no shorts.  We will keep looking.

My oldest found a really cute workout skort for $4.99 she liked and a pair of shorts for $1.99 to wear under her summer dresses.

I have been in need of a swimsuit for awhile.  My old one is worn out and a bit too big for me now (Oh darn) but the ones I looked at that I'd be willing to wear were well over $100.  No way!  That is not in the budget right now.  But I lucked out and found a cute two piece and an extra top too.  The top and bottoms were priced at $2.99 and the extra top was half priced at $1.50.  Now that is a price I can live with.  All three pieces are in like new condition too.

This skein of yarn was only 69¢

The grand total for everything came in at the same price the two sports bras would've been had I bought them at Wal-Mart.  I'm really glad now that I didn't get those and decided to check out the thrift store instead.


  1. Excellent shopping! I know everyone will enjoy the purchases and your swim suits look new!

    1. Thank you Anne. I thought the suits were a great find.

  2. WHAT! $100 for a swimming suit when there is less than a yard of fabric used to make it is highway robbery. You made a good choice to walk away and search for a better deal.


    1. It had obviously been a while since I've been bathing suit shopping and I nearly died when I saw the prices. And honestly, I thought they were all pretty ugly. I feel much better about the ones I found at the thrift store.


Your kind comments are always appreciated. I love hearing from you.
