Frugal Friday Find
I am a bit late in posting this (and have been neglecting the blog the past few days) but I have either been dealing with sick kids or dealing with having the flu myself. And this was a particularly nasty one, and I guess we just didn't get the flu shots early enough to help avoid this one.
Anyway this Frugal Friday Find actually found me. A fellow colleague at work was cleaning out her closet and asked if I wanted anything that no longer fit. FREE CLOTHES-sign me up. This couldn't have come at a better time as since going gluten free I am no longer suffering from the stomach bloat I was experiencing and have lost a bit of weight, so needed smaller clothes. Turns out that was just what she had to offer.
So after trying everything on today I ended up with two pairs of jeans, one pair capris and one pair dress pants. Along with 11 shirts - sweaters, tank tops, some sweaters, some dressy enough for work.
What I didn't need today I bagged up and dropped off at the local Womens shelter. There was about two black garbage bags full for them. So at the end of the day I am happy to have gotten some free clothes and also pass on my good fortune to those in need!
