Let's start with the clothes, shall we?
First picture we have a pair of Venezia jeans in my size (hard to find!), a long sleeved brown t-shirt that I plan to use while making soap, a long sleeved waffle weave purple shirt that I love, and a light blue pair of sweatpants to wear while crafting. Total - $14.00
Second picture is a t-shirt that made me LAUGH!!! It's so true...and so far from the way things are perceived that it just made me giggle. I hope wearing this make other people see as well. $1.97
Ouch these are lousy pictures! OK, for my 10 yr old, Bear, we have a Tony Hawk blue hoodie, a Hollister t-shirt, and a long sleeve red/black shirt with a gothic cross and "cool design" as he said. Total $9.00
5, count 'em, 5 pairs of size 12 jeans for my long legged Bear. Size 10 fits his waist but they're like an inch or two short. Keeping him in jeans is such a pain!! Arizona, Cherokee, Wrangler, Old Navy, and Tony Hawk. Total $20.00.
Joe Boxer sweatshort and flannel skull print sleep pants. My kid will wear anything as long as it has skulls, and yet he's not a goth kinda kid. Weird. Total - $6.00
For the hubby, A Salt Life black t-shirt, a brown American Vintage t-shirt, and a blue striped Izod polo. Total - $12.00. We get all of hubby's polos and khaki work pants at Goodwill. He works on lasers and typically is crawling around a laser to fix it, plus sometimes gets dye on his pants. Yet he wears brand names and looks professional wherever he goes. Total - $12.00
Last but not least, for Tyler. A dark green Lacoste polo, and a funny t-shirt from the movie Hangover 2. Not everyone's humor, but he saw it without asking first. And he LOVES the shirt. $4.00
Total for all the clothes - $67. (Unless my math is bad, which is a distinct possibility). That is a HUGE savings over what this would all have cost retail, even on sale. A good wash in hot water with my homemade laundry soap (an extra scoop just cuz) and it's all good.
Tomorrow, I'll show you all the "stuff" we got.
