I have been busy “Spring Flinging” around here at Casa Chaos! And one of the areas that I recently tackled was my closet and dresser.
I pulled out anything wintery that I did not wear this past year (excluding a couple of dressier items) and decided that since I didn’t wear them, they aren’t needed and are just taking up valuable space. So they went into the Donate Bag.
I pulled out all my Summer clothes and checked to make sure they fit and were in good repair. After all that flinging I discovered that I had little to no summer clothes left! And warmer weather has finally come to Michigan.
Here is a bit of shocking news for you. I haven’t been thrifting since February! I even threw out a 50% off total purchase coupon for Value World! GASP!!! The only shopping I have done has been grocery shopping and a couple of Home Depot visits.
Why you ask? Two reasons. 1.) I didn’t want to spend any money and 2.) I am trying to get RID of things.
Well, I knew I had an April 50% off coupon for Value World so, I decided to go there and ONLY look for Capri pants and shorts. Pants are always harder for me to find than tops.
This was going to be a BIG test of willpower for me. To JUST shop for pants and not look around the store!
I will have you know, I did it!! I only shopped for and bought pants! Woohoo Diann!!
One of the bad points for Value World is they do not have fitting rooms. Knowing that, I wore leggings to the store so I could try pants on over them. Even though I tried to stay out of everyone’s way, it just got too frustrating so I decided to just buy quite a few pants knowing that some would not fit and I would either give them to someone of re-donate them.
I came home with 16 pairs of capris and 6 pairs of shorts. I tried each of them on and they ALL fit and looked nice! Holy cow that NEVER happens!
I removed all the tags and off to the washing machine they went! As you can see from the price tags above, prices were very low to start out with.
My grand total for 16 pairs of capris and 6 pairs of shorts……$25.60!
Let’s get on with the party! Show me you thriftiness!
