Tomorrow I'm hoping that Layla and I can hit the local yardsale circuit. With the weather still nice and Father's Day right around the corner I am hoping that those people with hidden stashes of 2T clothing dust off the storage tubs and put them out for sale in the front yard.
We've been very lucky with baby clothes. In the beginning there were a lot hand me downs and so I started right off the bat buying clothing in bigger sizes whenever I found something I liked and storing it for later. So 18 months and 12 months and all the months before that we were pretty well stocked before we needed clothing.
Then it hit. The SPURT. Every kid has a growth spurt at some point, Layla had 3 or so as a baby but this last one was a real winner. Now it appears that most of her clothing is too short in the legs or torso and although it's still too big in the waist half the time, we're probably still going to be moving to 2T faster than I expected.
So it's time to do what I do best. I'm going to comb the thrift stores, check the baby consignment shop, hint to shopping addicted Nana's and start the yard sale circuit before I got back to working weekends...and if I am lucky... my kid won't have to have high waters come winter.
Sunday I'll be working some overtime. I wasn't happy about it when it got assigned to me but I could use the money and if I work my cards out right, by the next round of yardsale shopping I'll have more than $20 to invest in Layla's wardrobe.
I'll post later this week and let you know what I got with my $20.00...wish me luck!
