fabulously free wardrobe & stroller

i'm super frugal attempting to not be frumpy but now ill be fashionable with all these name-brand clothes that were given to me from a girl who wanted to get a new wardrobe and who's parents can afford to do such a thing!

i have always put others needs and desires above my own and its just increased as we have a growing family... Chris will love it that im now trendy and have a few more options instead of always wearing the same thing!

here is my stash of well over $1000 worth of clothes plus a pair of shoes and a ton of hair products and even a $10 hollywood video gift card

the whole lot... 10 sweaters, 5 pairs of pants, 3 dresses, 10 shirts, 6 cami's, lots of workout/lounge ware, & a winter coat!

oh and with the "extras" like the mini skirts and teeny-bopper apparel i made $72 buckaroos at platos closet and what they did not take i will donate to His House and use it as a tax write-off. i am also VERY motivated to go through my old stuff and bag it up to give away as well!

and while i was wasting time waiting for the ladies at platos closet to tally up my profit the boys and i found an awesome umbrella stroller in the parking lot in a box of a new stroller (as in someone bought the stroller and dumped the old one)... the ironic thing about it is, babies-r-us is having a special going on that they will take any old car seat, stroller, crib, etc and give you 20% off discount to basically destroy your trash properly and the person didn't do that! so i have cleaned it up and trying to decide if ill sell it at the tot trade next week or keep it and sell our little cheapo umbrella stroller!
