in the middle of the night.

So I went to two thrift stores today, somewhat disappointing.  The first one is a usual for me but today it seemed like the prices of everything went up, by alot!  There were fur capes which I always have my eye on but the prices are just to high for me at the moment and this adorable little purse which I was all ready to buy thinking it was a steal at $2.45 but no, I was wrong.  I went up the pay and it was actually $24.95!  Man, I hate when that happens.  I didn't have enough money to buy it and am still pretty bummed about it.  I also visited a local salvation army and bought some things.  I ended up with two dresses, one blouse, one striped t-shirt, a little girls dress that I wish I could fit into, a smock/apron, a towel and three really adorable drinking glasses with dogs on them.

just a sample of what I bought today.

Cute right? we'll I think so. After reading so many blogs and being in awe of everyone's wardrobes, I often wondered how much you girls think is too much to spend on an item? $10,$30,$100? holla at me.<3333

the blue check shirt/tunic is sooo cute! I want it;)...
I'm a cheapy when it comes to money and buying clothes..such as "$25 for jeans! outrageous!!", yeah I don't pay alot, so that means I'm always going back to stores a couple weeks later hoping stuff is on sale..

haha well maybe it'll be on etsy soon! and yes, I agree about the $25 dollars being expensive for jeans but thats the one piece of clothing I actually splurge on. haha. And now since I thrift so much, walking into a real store is torture!

I end up thinking to myself that I won't spend more than $30 on a piece of clothing, and I usually don't... but sometimes I do buy a few $20ish items at once, and that adds up.

I'm trying to be frugal, really!
