Today, I needed a therapy session. My oldest son left at the crack of dawn for summer camp. My baby needs tubes in his ears. I needed a way to deal. Like a shopaholic, I headed strait for retail therapy. I intended on buying a swimsuit and an extra outfit for Little Miss M (the little girl that I babysit part-time).
I went to my favorite resale shop, Once Upon A Child. They are running their 50% off summer sale and I found so many cute outfits for a great price that I called little Miss M's momma. She was happy that I offered to shop for her (on her dime, of course). I was thrilled that I got my retail therapy on someone else's dime.
I had a great time. Little Miss M has a new summer wardrobe. Little Miss M's momma got great deals without any extra work. I feel better. My tip for the day is for any momma who wants to fill her child's closet without emptying her pocket book. Visit your local re-sale shop when they have their clothes on clearance. Enjoy the clothes and keep your cash!
