Kids Thrift Haul

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Thursday I hope everyone week is going well, for today’s blog post i wanted to share my kids thrift haul in review of some recent purchases I did and how the whole trip went. So funny story my at the time three month old needed a new swing and my mom decided me and my husband to go to ” Once upon a child” a thrift store in Toronto for kids and babies and sell our old one and buy a new used one from there.

I was so hesitant on this because to be honest I am not much of a thrifting person, I never have for me or my oldest most of her clothing comes from zara. So me and my husband get there and I start looking around and omg guys I start getting carried away and picking up items. I have so far made about two trips so far or three and I have bought so much items that came up to about $70.00 CAD, that is about the same amount for three items i buy at zara.

I swear it has became an obsession for me because now whenever I get money that’s all I think about thrifting. I am happy for the least I gave something a try and stepped out my comfort zone, now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with thrift stores but that was the first time I ever really been in one. For my overall experience it was great, the clothing most is new and the ones used is actually not to bad looking you cant really tell for the most that they are used. The service I had was okay I received great service the only thing I think that part of their service that is not so good is how much they give you in selling. It seems what you give to sell they dont pay you as much as what the item may cost, I have picked up some designer clothes from there and they didn’t cost much seriously i paid for some for about $5.00 CAD.

I know it is a thrift store and the whole idea is buying a lot for less but if I paid for an item for a lot I would want at least a decent amount of money back. Another down side was that they sell a lot of cute clothes from newborn till about 3 years and I noticed for my oldest daughter which she is about 5 going on 6 they didn’t have good clothes to me for her age. Pretty much what id buy there for her is about dresses and pj’s. The items I did get were some dresses for my oldest because it was all I can find that i liked, and for my four month old I got some cute shorts for her and some cute outfits I got to find a good decent amount of clothes. My most favourite items from both of them if I had to chose would be one of the dress from my oldest and this cute jeans jacket I found for my youngest. Overall I would say I am now a 100% thrift shopper, I know for sure ill be spending a lot of time there. Thanks for reading, because of a busy day yesterday I did not get to post yesterday I hate when I have to switch up the schedule due to a busy week but I am happy I at least got to get it up today. Monday usual post will be up at 9am EST time for sure, have a great rest of your Thursday!

Kids Christmas Clothing Haul

Good afternoon everyone! Welcome back to my blog,I am back with another post for Christmas. I hope so far your afternoon is going well mine of course is filled with sleep deprivation as per usual but what would I do without my coffee! I have done some last minute Christmas pick up for tomorrow and had to share. I do also want to mention this week I will have a total of three posts up due to Christmas, I have decided on a set schedule ( hopefully I stick to it) to have two posts up a week. So I did some last minute shopping at the mall and purchased one of these dresses for my older daughter. It is so hard to shop in general because malls are always packed but for around the holidays is even 10x even more worse. I love the holidays and I hate to see it go but I always miss having money in my pocket.

This is one of the purchases this one was bought from my sister, this was purchased at kids H&M. Along with two sweaters she can wear over the dresses, which is pictures of them down below.

This is the dress I bought, I found this dress at Forever 21 kids. I am surprised I actually came across it I dont really look through forever 21 kids, my daughter is five years old and its actually for older girls but I buy older sizes for her because she is a bit tall. I love that with these buys she can wear them for Christmas and for other occasions.

I hope the rest of your afternoon go well, and your Christmas! I will be putting up my next post on Thursday. Remember to like & comment I love hearing from you all, until next time.
