Happy Happy Joy Joy

Today at the Item Exchange- I picked up a GARBAGE BAG worth of clothing.

I also picked up a few cookbooks, the WHOLE Little House on the Prairie book series and a few other books.

1 hours of time = a TON of free stuff.

I'm not greedy- I only took clothing that would fit one of my two nephew's or my beautiful daughter...I left all the other stuff there for other Mommy's. It was tempting though, there was some really cute newborn girl/boy stuff that I would of liked to have taken, but I didn't...because I'm not greedy. I also donated our old entertainment unit. It was given to us by my BFF back when we got married- so I didn't feel right taking money for it. Give a little, get a lot. Today was a success in the 'get-stuff-for-free' department.

I wanted to share this with you all- because things like this HAPPEN ALL THE TIME. Seriously, this is the second free item/clothing exchange that I've been to in less then 6 months. You just gotta know who to ask.

Apparently there is a Chili-thon coming up...free food = happy Erin.

My suggestion to those of you who are jealous...ask around, go to community centers, make friends with 17 year old (or not, whateva...) and I'm sure you'll find some wicked awesome stuff yourself. OR, better yet- organize one yourself. I'll try to attend it. You know how I get around free stuff....

Frugally Yours,
Erin B.
