April Thrift Haul

Looking back at my last few Thrift Haul posts, I realized I haven’t had much luck in thrifting clothing items lately. It may be because I don’t really need much in my closet these days, or as an extension of that I’ve gotten much pickier with my finds. I have been finding quite a few scores for Jack though, so at least one of us is benefiting from my thrifting.

This month, I did find one clothing item for me:

JC Sunny Kimono, $7

I found this colorful kimono in with the cardigans and my initial thought was that I love it as a beach cover-up. However, now that it’s been washed and I tried it on, it also looks really cute layered over a top with shorts. So, this may also become a pretty topper this summer.

Crochet Blanket, $6

This isn’t a clothing item, but I have been using it on a near daily basis. You all know how I love my handmade crochet blankets and the colors on this one just grabbed me! I love it and it has been living in my den for all impromptu cuddle/reading/coffee sessions this month.

K’Nex, $4.50

Yup, I bought Jack some more K’Nex. This giant box was on half-price sale for just $4.50, so I figured it was a no-brainer to add it to Jack’s collection. He’s already scavenged it and made a bunch of projects, so it was totally worth it already.

Turing Tumble, $8

I wasn’t really sure what this was when I picked it up, but it was only $8, had all the pieces, and looked like something STEM-related, so I gave it a chance. After googling a bit, I found that it is a $70 computer coding game. Jack loves it and has used the gears, bits and interceptors to make his own marble runs. I certainly wouldn’t pay $70 for this, but for $8 it’s getting lots of use in our house.

As I’ve mentioned before, if you’ve got a kid who loves STEM toys, make sure to hit up the local thrift stores. So many people receive them as gifts and just donate them unopened!

  1. If Jack doesn’t become an engineer, I don’t know who will. You find so many good kits!
    I love the kimono. I have really cute shorts, but just don’t know what to wear them with. This is a great idea, even with a tank top under it. Thanks. Have a great day.
