Hello everyone. It’s 9pm and I have about 6 more items to list and 3 items to prep to ship. I’m tired but I’m determined to do all this plus finish chores and plan my next day out. I just want to tell you how my trip to the pound store early morning Thursday went.
My last post was about going to the pound store. I wanted to go to the pound store when they open out of curiosity if it will be better. Last time I went around 9:15am right after I made sure my son was fed and played a little. It was busy for sure and while I did leave with 50 lbs of items , I felt I could do better if I go when they open around 7am. IT WAS SOOOOO MUCH BETTER.
I have to admit waking up at 6am was a little weird for me to go to the pound store. My husband and son were asleep in the cozy bed. It made it hard to get up. I did though and I’m glad. There was close parking, and I was able to get a cart that was in decent shape. Probably less than 10 people were there already and we had a bin to ourselves. Nice not to have people shoving themselves in front of me or worrying if someone is picking through my cart. When they replenish the bins it wasn’t mayhem either! Around 9:00am is when it started to get crazy. I’m assuming people were dropping off their kids by then and they head straight there. That’s ok because by 10am I left with close to 80 pieces of clothing. I came home with most of them in good condition with only having to trash 5 pieces.
I’m sorry I don’t have time to post what items I came home with but I came home with brands such as Tommy Bahama, Lucky Brand, A North Face Fleece Sweater, Ralph Lauren, Torrid, Lane Bryant, Some Denim Jeans by various brands, and some baby clothes for my son.
