CRAP! School starts in 9 days!!!! There are so many things that I need to get done and I do not even know where to start. So I decided to do a daily countdown! A countdown to help my daughter and I get things accomplished.
Day 10: (Yesterday) Project Finish the Attire
We went shopping for whatever clothes she NEEDED. I am a pretty savvy shopper. Especially when it comes to kids clothes. I enjoy using coupons, and discounts everywhere I go.
I had a coupon for a BOGO half off jeans at a local kids resale shop. It is one of my favorite places to get her clothes. They also give a military discount. WIN-WIN.
She got 6 pair of jeans, 2 pair of shoes and a gymnastics leotard ALL for $56.
That is 9 items at about $6 per item! What a steal. I just love saving money!
Day 9: (Today) My daughter finally decides she wants a desk in her room. Great! Until I realize all the children’s desks are over $50.
And then my SIL found this beautiful desk on the curb. Can you believe that?! Perfect timing…
I let my daughter decide what she wants to do with it. Her first instinct is to paint it all pink. Of course I have to talk her down. ALL PINK, is just not good for the eyes 😉
Anyways, we settle on a green chalkboard desktop with glitter pink accents!
This is happening TODAY, Day 9: Project Desk Redo
I will definitely post updated pictures, because this desk will be too fantastic not to share 🙂
