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.

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.
