Ok so if you read my last post you know that I've been trying to be thrifty and save money for kid things... So I have posted my recent finds to share with you because I'm a bit excited about them!!
First were my finds at the Mothers For Multiples Consignment Sale (the place that had the $40 carseat)
This one I remember reading as a child and was so super excited to come across it at the sale. Given, it was $1 and that seems like a bit much for a second hand book, but I bought it anyways. Alina calls it her Super Grover book and reads it to me all the time - usually talking about the pictures in a imitation Grover voice, but I am reading it with her often and pointing to the letters and having her say them with me.
This is a picture of something super similar to what I bought (I'll put up a real pic when I remember to take a picture). It's called a "voile" technically, I call it a window scarf thing. Hers is a really baby light pink that has furry stuff sticking out of it - almost like a boa, but not feathery. We draped it over her sheer white curtain and she was so excited when she saw it and told me it was pretty. I plan to put up a curtain rod soon, now that there's enough curtiain hanging to actually cover the window and it won't look tacky. But, that's on the day that I finish her room... so that's on a day I have alot of time and about $25 to buy molding for the top of her room.
Next: My craigslist add worked!! I had given up on finding a carseat at a thrift store and began looking at yard sales and such. Finally I posted on craigslist, asking to buy a forward facing carseat for $10-$15, hoping someone has an old one collecting dust or something they want to get rid of. I had a lady contact me on Saturday and said she'd sell me one they used in Grandma's car for $15. She says its clean and hardly used at all. I frankly don't care, if it's $15, it's sold!! I'll update later (tomorrow) with a picture of it.
Next: My newest craigslist find! I was meandering around looking at random junk and went to the free section on craigslist and noticed a listing for a bunch of free stuff, including a double stroller. She says it's a bit scratched on the plastic and the cover needs washed but that she's just giving it away. I called her up and am picking it up on the way home. I'll also post a picture of that tomorrow!
Anyways... I'm super excited about all the cool stuff I found!
