Winnipeg shopping

So although the plan was to go to Winnipeg and find garage sales, we didn't find any that were worth stopping at. White Ridge community was having their garage sale, but we didn't know where it was, the sale was over at 2 and it was already 12:30. The few that we did pass by, were old people. I was looking for toys and thought it pretty safe to assume that they wouldn't have any.

Instead, we hit costco and the mall. Costco didn't yield too much for me. A pair of capris, and an awesome jacket. But then we got to the mall. I still had a gift certificate for the Bay from when Caden was born. I was saving it for when he was older, because they don't have alot of selection of baby clothes. I'm also not about to pay $30 for 1 sleeper. Anyway, I found a cute pair of shorts, a collared shirt, and the cutest hat. I'd post pics, but I can't because I have dial up and it doesn't work. That ended up costing me $0.69.

Then we headed for the polo park mall. We hit La Senza where I was finally able to find 2 bras that actually fit me properly. They were on sale too, which I only found out at the till. What a nice surprise. Childrens place was the next stop. I've been looking for pjs for Caden. Up till now, he's been wearing sleepers from Costco. The most awesome sleepers ever and they are only $7. But now he's into the 18 month ones and the legs are way too long. (I think he's got short legs) So anyway, I had to find others. 2 pc preferably. Childrens place had nothing that I liked. I don't want dinosaurs on or near Caden cause I don't like them...lol. But I did find a 3 in 1 jacket ($15) a button up shirt ($15) a long sleeved shirt ($6.50) and a pair of pants ($2) Yup, i said $2. Couldn't leave them there. Anyone with kids should go because they have alot of 1/2 off sale price items right now. I did end up finding pjs at Sears of all places. $9 per pair which I thought was not too bad. I definitely could have done more shopping, but this next weekend my Mom, Amy and I are going to Grand Forks for the weekend so I wanna save my money.

All in all a super good day. Boston Pizza for supper, because Red Lobster was a 1 1/2 hour wait. Thanks to my Mom, Aunt Agatha and Anna for a good time.

I never find sweet deals like that. Maybe I ought to send you shopping for me? jk. I can't even get a good deal from family. My sister-in-law has one of those bike trailer/strollers. She bought it used has never even used it. Her kids are to big now and she won't even sell it to me. At least you give me hope that their are still some good deals to be had. lol

One of the best, riches new developement is having their garage sales this coming thur - fri. They are usually very good. A little pricey, but very good. How do you add friends to your blog? I have a blog too now. It's joniandherloves@blogspot.com. I'm so new at this and am stumbling along in the dark trying to figure it out, so bear with me...

I've been to the White Ridge garage sales before. Let's just say we went at 7:30 in the morning, and the streets were so full you couldn't find a place to park!
