    Landon’s birthday is coming up so we definitely got some great trucks and other vehicles to add to his collection.

    Before I show you all the vehicles – look at this awesome desk we got for Lily for just $10!  The top lifts for storage underneath.

    Landon was a fantastic shopping buddy today and thus he was richly rewarded!  A dozer that lights up and makes noise for just $3.

    And unbeknownst to him, this GIANT dump truck will top his 3rd birthday present pile!!!  Just $7!

    As I have mentioned on Facebook, we are right in the middle of potty training.  We picked up a Baby Bjorn potty for $8.  Hoping this adds to potty training success!

    Mickey.  Landon. $10 for this costume.  Need I say more?

    More toys for the birthday boy.  2 grab bags of firetrucks and rescue vehicles for around $2/bag and a Superman mask and cape set for $4.50. Also a crane truck for $1.

    I set out looking for new ballet slippers for Lily today.  Hers are dreadfully small on her and I was able to get her TWO pairs – for just $6.50 TOTAL – and the one pair is in like-new condition.  One pair will fit her now, the next will be waiting as it’s the next size up.

    I also wanted to look for a pair of snow boots for Lily and I ended up hitting the boot jackpot. I got her winter boots to wear with her thousands of pairs of leggings ($4), snow boots ($6) and black boots that will double as Darth Vader boots for Halloween AND pirate night boots for our next Disney cruise ($6)!!  $16 for all three of these pairs of boots:

    These are random finds for Landon – firetruck sneakers ($4), Bauer hockey skates ($4) and Under Armour cleats ($5). The cleats probably won’t fit him for a couple years but the deal was too great to pass up!

    I really really tried to use some restraint with clothing at this sale, something that I am usually incapable of doing.  But my kiddos are 110% set for the fall and winter ahead – their closets are BURSTING and they already have too many clothes. So except for this $1 pair of Carter’s PJs which all but leapt into my bag, I held strong when it came to clothes!  Should you NEED clothing, however, this sale is the place to be!!  SO MANY CLOTHES!

    Definitely make plans to shop JBF Hatfield/Quakertown this weekend and let me know what you think!

    Happy shopping!

    vanity-fair-outlet-sale

    Hey local readers!

    Earlier this week Bob stopped at ALDI in Souderton, PA after work and happened to see some Philadelphia sports team apparel for sale at Vanity Fair Outlet so he wandered over to take a look. They had a whole bunch of Phillies, Eagles and Flyers apparel from $4.99! Lots of tshirts, as well as some long sleeved shirts and sweatshirts. The clothing is all Majestic brand, which is what you’d buy at the ballpark, for a whole lot more money.

    Look at my new shirts!! YAY!!

    Savers Thrift Store in East Norriton, PA Opens September 1st – Here’s a Sneak Peek!

    This post is sponsored by Savers Thrift Stores.  All opinions are 100% our own.

    Savers Thrift East Norriton

    Local readers who LOVE finding great bargains (and I know there are MANY of you out there!):
    You are about to hit the bargain jackpot.  There is a brand new Savers Thrift Store opening tomorrow, September 1, 2016 in East Norriton, PA.  (The official address is 2708 Dekalb Pike, East Norriton, PA 19401.  It is right by the intersection of Germantown Pike and Route 202 (Dekalb Pike).)  We had the opportunity to shop at this brand new Savers last night and I can’t even begin to prepare you for the amazing deals that we found!

    Now, before I show you pictures of the amazingness we found, as well as the shopping haul we brought home, I want to remind you how Savers gives back in a big way to its surrounding community.  This Savers store receives its donations collected by Big Brothers Big Sisters Clothes for Kids’ Sake and also from community members who drop their donations at the stores.  Donating is as easy as pulling up to the designated parking spots during regular store hours.  Employees will help you unload your donations and you’ll receive a donation receipt for your income taxes and a coupon towards your next shopping trip!

    Through this partnership, Clothes for Kids’ Sake receives a steady source of income it distributes to local youth mentoring agencies like Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region. In 2015, Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region served over 3,500 youth in Southeastern PA and Southern NJ. Clothes for Kids’ Sake helps the agency fund community and school-based programs that provide children facing adversity with compassionate and caring adult mentors.

    That. is. AWESOME!

    So let’s check out this store!  Remember that Savers’ stores offer more than 100,000 items for sale at any given time and every single day more than 10,000 new items are placed on the sales floor.  You will never be at a loss for merchandise at Savers!

    We found the East Norriton store to be BIG, open and yes, fully- stocked.  Right inside the front of the store you will find LOTS of Halloween costumes, accessories and decor (BRAND NEW, not second hand).

    The clothing selection was borderline overwhelming.  They had so much to choose from for the entire family and we kept commenting over and over about what fantastic condition everything was.

    Too bad we aren’t Red Sox fans – check out this BRAND NEW WITH TAGS youth sized MLB Authentic Jersey for just $9.99!  The original tags read $75.  $9.99 for a lightly USED jersey would be a great price in my book – but this is BRAND NEW!  Unbelievable!

    My nieces are into gymnastics and take weekly classes.  I couldn’t leave this gorgeous leotard/jacket on the rack for just $6.99.  My older niece will LOVE it!

    We filled an entire cart full of goodies that made their way home with us!  Everyone in our family found things to buy, in all different categories.

    Check out this amazing toy box we found for our little fire truck fan!  $4.99!

    He’s also getting ready to take on the soccer field for the first time ever this fall.  He was thrilled with a new-to-him soccer ball, just his size ($1.99)!

    Bob made out like a BANDIT last night!  Under Armour, Nike, Adidas and Carhartt outerwear for just $7.99 each.  Work shirts for $3.99 each.

    When you’re a work at home mom, comfort reigns supreme.  I loaded up on yoga pants and capris.  All are name brands – Champion, Lands’ End, Old Navy and Gap with a price range of $2.99 – $6.99 each.

    Lily and Landon got a few new pieces of clothing too – Under Armour sweatshirt ($5.99), UA tank ($2.99) and a Justice sweatshirt ($2.99).  Awesome!

    Savers Thrift Kids Clothing

    Lily also got two pairs of shoes and I am convinced they are brand new. There is not  a single scuff or wear mark on the soles!  Lands’ End shoes for $3.99 and Avia sneakers for $5.99.  And yes, she was so excited about them she wore the sneaks to school today!

    The SECRETS to Saving BIG on Disney Souvenirs

    Disney Souvenirs

    Years ago, I wrote a post all about how I save SO MUCH MONEY on Disney souvenirs.  And here I am, almost 5.5 years later, still saving a ton of money, still heading to Disney almost annually with a big ‘ol bag of pre-purchased souvenirs that I have literally sometimes paid pennies for.  My kids usually hit the Parks or cruise ship decked in Disney – either character clothing or costumes – and I can’t help but smile knowing how little I paid for all of it.

    I like to take the other souvenirs (plush, toys, books, etc) and surprise them throughout the trip.  One night I’ll leave a plush on their pillows while they put on their pajamas.  Another day they’ll wake up to find a new costume to wear to the Parks.

    So one question you might ask me – WHERE do you find all of these bargains?  Well.  I have many answers and you can watch them all in this video (I’m LOLing at the video image – I promise I’m happier in this vid than I look on the thumbnail!! LOL!):
