Wee Sale madness!

For anyone who knows me, you know I am completely obsessed with the Wee Sale. I LOVE IT! I have volunteered at it for the past three years, but this year I decided to clear out some unwanted items and try to actually make some money, instead of just spending it. For anyone who has never been to the Wee Sale, let me describe it for you. Imagine a gigantic room with piles and piles of gorgeous items just waiting to be claimed. I am talking 10 aisles of just girls clothes, 5 aisled of Gymboree, 2 rows of Stride Rite shoes, tables and tables of toys, puzzles, books, bikes, and anything else you can possible imagine. Moms get there hours before they can shop just to stand in line. I volunteered 8 hours so that I could shop a whole day early (this is the "cool" thing to do as all us "cool" moms do this). It's like a little party in line (which you wait about an hour) when you see all the moms from your moms group. Everyone is gabbing about "Oh my gosh, where did you find that?" and "Oh I was looking for that!" and exclaiming about beloved finds. I often put it like this to the glazed over newbie who asked me what it is's like that episode of Friends where Monica, Phoebe and Rachel go shopping for a wedding dress with whistles in hands and all the women are fighting over the dresses. Well, I've never actually seen any fighting, but you get the picture. Two days of Wee Sale down and one to is 1/2 price day for me...wonder what I will come home with. This is my lot so far, which I paid a total of $191 for:

Bjorn potty
Diaper caddy basket with liner
4 toy trucks
Pottery Barn Kids NEW black out curtains
Bebe Au Lait nursing cover
Fisher Price booster seat
ABC blocks
Ikea push wagon/walker
One Step Ahead snow boots
4 Gymboree sweaters
2 Gymboree shirts
Gap corduroys
Pottery Barn Kids dragon costume
Gymboree cozy pants
Columbia jacket
Children's Place dragon rain boots
Bumgenius organic cloth diapers - 4
brand new Circo winter coat with matching snow pants
2 books
2 Baby Einstein DVDs
Stride Rite sneakers
sweater for me

I'd say I did pretty well. I'm already counting down the days until the next Wee Sale. It is exactally 202 days from today, August 28th. Guess I'll have to keep waiting.
