Shopping

Last Saturday we headed up to Lincoln for some important spring business. For Scott is was the Husker spring game, and with friends to sit with, he was excited! He was going to take Paul with him, but the weather was a bit cool- and we were not sure how he would do sitting for hours in the stands- Oh well, he will have many games to come I am sure! :)
While Scott was at the game, I met up with my friend Mandi, (former Lincoln resident and shopping expert) and with Paul, Marcus and Esther, (we thought an extra hand would be a help!) we headed out. We first started at the "real" stores, and after a look through Old Navy and similar stores, I came away shaking my head and thinking, "Do people really buy stuff there- FULL PRICE???" Wow- I don't get out very often and the sticker shock will really grab you! Then we moved further north into town and hit the real bargins. I was mostly looking for winter coats for the boys for next year, and the Lord blessed with a great winter coat, and a fall type jacket for Paul and then a Land's End, excellent condition coat for a few years down the line.
For $2.98, who could resist?
All in all, it was a busy and fun day. I was able to pick up a lot of good stuff for the boys and even a few things for me! Thrift stores are the best!

Yes! I agree! Thrift stores are the best!
Looks like you're going to have a nice big garden this year! I think some of our peas were killed by the frost... :( Oh, well. Replant I guess.
I hope all of the Ansons are well!
Give Paul and Marcus each a hug for me!
Lots of love!
God bless,
Kourtney

After the first question, (Do people actually pay that much?), my second question is often, "Do people actually wear that?" That's why I stick to thrift stores, too. :)

That is exactly the same thing I wonder when we go to stores!
I agree with Kourtney!
