3$ pants

Yesterday I stopped in at a Kitchener kids' consignment store to get Emily some new pants and look at the maternity clothes selection. There was a sign in the window that said they were having a one-day 50% off sale. What luck! I bought Emily 3 pairs of pants and a shirt. I bought her a snowsuit for next year for $13! And I bought jeans, a skirt and two shirts for myself. The whole bill came to $63. Poor Hope got nothing because her dresser is overflowing with hand-me-downs.

I put on my new jeans this morning. Something didn't feel quite comfortable in the tiny front pocket - that one you're not sure of the purpose of because it's almost impossible to fit your fingers in there.

I jammed my fingers in and...

pulled out a five dollar bill!

Sweet! Thank you, previous owner of these pants. You just dropped the price of my new jeans to $3!

How awesome! A couple of us were just talking about Value Village finds on Twitter today. Lucky you for finding five bucks, too :)

That is awesome. I would have been ridiculously excited. Like, way more excited than $5 really deserves. Like. You know.
