I made up some new cloth pads this weekend. They still need some snaps attached. Yes, it is Thomas but I wanted to use up scrap PUL that was sent to me by a friend. I believe I will be bleeding on pooh bear and strawberry shortcake too. hmmm, message in that I am sure LOL
This is the not frugal part. I know I wasn't buying new but..........$12 for the lot at Box Hill Spotlight. You can't say no to that surely. They had big bins with 50% of discounted price. The paints were $1ea,Magazine $2, cleckheaton country 50c ea and the cotton yarn was $5 for the lot. Pretty good I reckon and none will go to waste.
Scored this at the Knox Op Shop in Bayswater last week. Well, actually got 4 items for $2. Nienna is now ready for winter with some long sleeve tops bought from Hand Me Downs last week and a couple of pinnies. She will need new tights but I will go to HMD to get those too. Along with these pinnies I got a pumpkin patch swing top and a pair of striped leggings (in the wash). These are like new! Both my kids are now decked out for winter and I haven't had to buy anything new. Beren got a windcheater and track pants from the clothing pool for school and I will keep my eye out for more.
you don't have to spend money to entertain. Yesterday I made potato stamps and the kids had a ball outside with their paints making pictures on large sheets of paper. These in turn will be great wrapping paper for gifts.
