Thrifty Purchases: School Books

This past weekend I did a little thrift store run. The littles and I ventured to one of our favorite thrift stores, The Giving Store. I love this place. The people are friendly and I love knowing that my money spent is going to charity. It makes thrifting that much better!

This past weekend I had some great luck with books. I found quite a selection to use for school next year. I am always on the look out for books I can use for school. Homeschooling can be really expensive, but by buying books at a thrifty price and using my libraries, I am to give my children a great education on our limited budget.

I also snagged a green dress to re-purpose (tutorial coming soon), 2 shirts and 2 chapter books for the girl, 2 chapter books and shorts for the boy, and a pillow case to make into a night gown as well. I plan to use the cupcake nightie tutorial for that one.

Total Spent- $30.00

Not too bad right? Well within my $60 budget for the month. What have you guys and gals found at thrift stores this month? I would love to hear :)
