Back to School Shopping!!

I know I haven't updated in a while, and I'll have to do that later when I have more time, because this year has been crazy for me!

We took a family trip to Goodwill today and the whole family got some new outfits for back to school. I will be interning as a special ed teacher this fall, so I also need a work wardrobe!

We purchased 25 items of clothing and a pair of kid hiking boots for a total of $52.
A few of the things we bought:
Capri pants for me. These were the most expensive thing we bought at $4.

Outfit for Ethan:

School polos for Ethan ($1.50 each):

School pants and shorts for Andy ($2 each piece):

Outfit for Andy (vest -$1.50 shirt- $1.50 pants- $2.00)

That was an awesome shopping experience to say the least. The clothes look great. We enjoy our Goodwill store in the town where I work. We are here in NC enduring the triple digit temps. Check out our baby at my blog titled "The Simple Life" Have a wonderful rest of the weekend.

I read your post and found it wonderfully inspirational. I'm not that frugal, I confess, but as I'm thinking of taking out a loan to buy a house, I'm starting to think whether I'll be able to afford the things I need (like food!) and still be able to do the things I love: travel.

Thanks for the inspiration. Sometimes, it's seeing posts like yours that reminds me why I have a second job building a website... it's give that finantial freedom we all seek for me and my best friend.

So keep posting and thanks.

Shopping is a very exhilarating experience! Whether you are shopping for yourself or for others, it doesn't matter. Choosing the best clothes among a myriad of others is really a challenging and fun task! :)
