I had a great time at the clothing resale this weekend. I went Friday morning and loaded up a laundry basket for $32.00. I went back on Saturday and got twice as many items, all for half price. Some of the shirts and pants were only .50 ! They are all good quality, and a lot of them are expensive brands, like Gap, etc... I spent a total of $72.00 for a complete winter wardrobe for both my children. I made a total of $57.00 from the clothes I had consigned and donated whatever didn't sell to the church's mission projects. So my grand total was only $15.00. Honestly, I am so used to buying clothes for my kids for $3.00 or less, I get such a sticker shock when I go into a department store!I am already thinking ahead to the spring sale.

Tonight I am consigning all my kids outgrown clothes in a 2-day resale at a local church. I am hoping I will make enough money to buy them "new" clothes for this winter. Last spring when I did this I ended up spending only about $10.00 for summer clothes for both my kids! I have 3 laundry baskets full of clothes, plus some toys. Whatever doesn't sell I am donating to missions. This event is very popular. The sale starts tomorrow at 9:00 and people will be lined up waiting for the doors to open. Saturday is always half price day, so I will buy some stuff on Friday and then get whatever's left on Saturday. Then I pick up my check on Saturday afternoon and see how I did!
As far as my crafting business goes, I made $700.00 at 2 different craft shows. I have several more shows between now and Christmas, and I'm hoping I do well at those, too. I've also been working on some custom orders. Very exciting. I sew in my sleep now!
Between my checking and saving account I have reached my $1,000.00 goal 3 months ahead of schedule!!!!
