Shopping the House

I hope everyone had a very happy Easter Sunday! 
The Easter Bunny found my three and they had so much fun finding eggs.  We went to church and dinner at my mom and dad's afterward.  Now that we are all sugared out, I need to get back to work
The kids have been off track from school (we are year round here) so they go back tomorrow.  
It's a lot of fun having them home but I'll admit I didn't get much done.  They did help me out at a yard sale with some friends on Saturday morning.  
I made a whopping $40.25.  
That is the WORST I have ever done selling at a yard sale.  It was fun hanging out with friends but I was a tad disappointed I didn't get at least $50! Booooo.

Since my kids absolutely hate going to thrift stores with me, I have been trying to shop the house to see what I can come up with.
 I bought this David Warren faux wrap dress years ago at TJ Maxx for $15 and never wore it.  I finally listed it and it sold a few days later for $54.00.  Not a bad return for cleaning out my closet! 
(I spoke too soon, a return has been started on the dress, grrr.)
I picked this GK Leotard for Lauren to wear to tumbling class at a yard sale last summer for 50 cents. She wore it once and it said it bothered her.  I've got it listed now and have 5 watchers on it so far. 

I have a church activity next Saturday morning that is going to keep me from going out to yard sales, so I'm going to have to look around a little harder for things to list.

How is the shopping going for you?  Yard sales are just popping up and I can't wait until 2 weeks from now when I can really hit some hard!


  1. I haven't had a chance to go saling yet. Only hit up one toy consignment sale so far this year, but I'm itching to go garage saling again. I love being outside...and garage sales are usually so much cheaper than the thrifts around here!

  2. I think I've completely shopped my house empty. Thank goodness yard sale season is here! Btw, your kiddos are as cute as can be :)

  3. Hi Kristen, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  4. Running out of things to list is a good feeling. ....,for about a day. Glad you are all caught up and ready to treasure hunt!

  5. Love the dress you bought. I just wish that kind of dress fit me too. :)
    Anyway I'll definitely buy something like this once I was able to manage my budget wisely.
