14 Packages

You know you're the shiz when the postal carrier leaves you your very own USPS mail bins on your porch to fill with packages every day. ;)

You're Welcome USPS

I was just looking at my books, and I have spent...


on shipping in 2012.

Good gravy that's a lot of money!

How much do you think you've spent so far this year?

Holy Moly Gymbo Haul!

Sometimes you just get lucky...
today was an uncommon occurrence but it sure was fun!

Just a regular old garage sale.  The lady even advertised on craigslist so I have NO idea why when I showed up a couple hours after she opened there was nobody there and nothing had been picked over. 

It was meant to be. ;)

Haul Stats:

21 Dresses
14 2+ PC Outfits
19 Separates
1 Coat
25 PJ sets

$50 or 63 cents each :)

63 cents for a 3 piece Gymboree outfit?  I'll take it!

Resale at a consignment sale will be an easy $375+

FYI - It often pays to buy in bulk.  The women had very fair prices considering the brands and quality of her items.  I had asked if I could pay 25 cents per item if I bought a ton and she didn't agree to that but said she'd "give me a good deal".  She added up my large pile and said she was at $70 BUT I had a huge and I mean huge pile of clothes in my arms that she hadn't yet added and then she said how about $50 for all of it.  Yes please! 

Bonus: I would have bought these regardless of size because they have such great resale value but the fact that my daughter will be able to wear them first is pure icing on the cake.
