Happy New Year!
I celebrated the new year by doing things that would break most people’s resolutions – I went shopping, spent money, drank a milkshake and I didn’t work out.
This is why I don’t make resolutions.
Our local Goodwill had a 50% off today and you all know what a sucker I am for that place! I met my mom there right when they opened and this is what I came home with:
All this for $36! Just in case you want the break down, here it is:
Nicole Miller gold tie – $1.00
2 Pairs of Nike Tempo Shorts – $2.00
Navy Blue Talbots skirt – $2.00
FSU tshirt (for the Mini Athlete) – $0.50
Dress for Little Miss – $0.50
Carters pink pants for Little Miss – $0.50
Carters pink outfit – $0.50
Champion Workout Tank – $1.50
Blue Alfani Shirt – $1.50
Boppy – $2.50
Perry Ellis men’s shirt – $2.50
Banana Republic silk dress – $7.50
Tissue holder covered in bling – $2.50 (actually for my mom’s house)
And a pair of flats that I forgot to include in the photo – $3.50
Then my mom called and informed me that Dillards had everything in their store 50% off – and sometimes an extra 50% off that! Nate has been needing some new dress clothes and we were able to find some nice Perry Ellis pants for $20 and also got him a pair of Lucky jeans for just $22. Oh and I couldn’t resist buying these for Little Miss Athlete – her first pair of running shorts!
Just $3.74. I love a good deal. These are actually size 18m so we have a while before she can wear them but I can just imagine how cute they will look! She seems pretty happy about them too.
Back to New Year resolutions…I actually did make (and keep) a resolution one year. While in high school, I decided I wasn’t going to eat chocolate for a year – and I didn’t. Even when I went to Europe for the first time. No Swiss chocolate.
Dumbest. Resolution. Ever.
Have you ever made and kept a resolution? Lasted more than one day?
