I recently had a comment from one of my visitors in response to “More Shopping Tips.” Many of my readers agree that shopping at thrift stores is a great idea. Here is what Cara had to say:
“I go to the sally ann in two different towns! I am always looking for clothes in the next size up for my daughter! And now I have thought of a great idea to start a dress-up trunk! Today the Sally Ann had a bunch of costume stuff and I got some tu-tus for her to dress up! They are adorable and a great chance for her to be creative!”
I love this idea – a dress-up trunk! Hours and hours of fun for not a lot of money. I recall having a dress-up trunk that consisted of my Mom’s old clothes, and my sister and I love it and used it for years. It was a great opportunity for us to use our imaginations. Now is a perfect time to go – just after Halloween – to find cast-off costumes. The tu-tus are perfect!
You could always save some for Christmas or birthday presents, too!
Happy hunting… and please come back to share any great finds!
