So I’ve been hitting up the local thrift stores the past couple weeks. And I’m pretty proud that I’ve kept my purchases to a minimum.
I did find a couple sleep sacks, a cute onesie, and a play phone for Daughter. Although I’m a little on the fence about her having a play phone, I would much rather her have her own phone to chew on than always finding my phone (which has a broken zero button due to her chewing, and you don’t realize how important that zero button is until you can’t use it anymore).
I also found a cheese slicer. Which you might not think is particularly cool because you can go to the store and get one at anytime. But, one of the things I really dislike about new kitchen utensils is how big their handles are. I don’t want to only be able to fit four utensils in a drawer. And I don’t use the cheese slicer enough to warrant an ergonomic handle. So I was very pleased to find an old school cheese slicer.
And the things I am most excited about are books. You’re probably shocked to hear that I bought books. I’ve only bought three. I know, I know this is where I’ve really reined myself in. But I bought a Harry Potter book (shhh…I haven’t read the whole series yet). And two of the Earthsea books, which I also haven’t read yet. I’m super excited about these books and hope that I can get the rest of the series soon (I might have to splurge and buy some of the books new).
