Sunday Thrifting Success at T.J.Maxx

by Dagmar Bleasdale on February 11, 2013

boy sledding down a driveway, standing on sledAfter all that preparation for Nemo, we didn’t lose power. The wind wasn’t that bad, but we did get about 18 inches of snow.

Landon had a blast “snowboarding” down the driveway on his sled. Little daredevil.

I shoveled out the car with L’s help, which involved him climbing on the roof and me yelling, “Be careful!” — and sure enough he slid down the front window, down the hood, and into the snow.

He wanted to do it again, of course, but I didn’t want my car all scratched up. It’s an old car but it still looks good for a reason.

Off we went to have breakfast at Panera Bread.

I had to return a tablecloth to T.J.Maxx next to Panera and wouldn’t you know it, it was my lucky day.

I got all of this for just $12:

Looks like you struck gold. I think its genius to use those socks for a bear. As for me I found a free bin at a used bookstore yesterday. So I got three pregnancy books for free. I love getting great deals.
