I rewarded myself for being fairly frugal lately and doing a bunch of cleaning and organizing post-Christmas. I didn't want to buy a bunch of junk - heck, I just got done donating a lot of schtuff. But I was in need of some new jeans since I have only one pair now that fit. At my favorite Salvation Army store I found two pair of like new Coldwater Creek cropped jeans, some flannel PJ pants, two books, and a frame.
I spent a whopping $13.22, with tax. Amazing since CC charges $50-$80 a pair for their jeans, and hardly anyone sells cropped jeans in January, Here in Central Texas it's been very mild weather - too cool for shorts, too warm for sweats. Crops are a good compromise.
I threw the jeans and PJ's into the wash, and will settle in with my new books tonight. The frame is now home to our new family portrait. All in all, a pretty sweet thrift trip I don't have one ounce of guilt over!
