Make Haste to Target!
StEaL # 1: 4 Christopher Radko soup bowls for a grand total of $4.00. They were originally $16.00. I've been collecting the CR Christmas patterned stuff for several years now. We use it once a year or so, usually because I forget that it's stored away in my sideboard. (Goal for 2009: Use it at least twice!) I never open the sideboard because I had to use some classy packing tape to secure the doors. Babyproofing devices don't work on cheapo IKEA pieces, and Michaela Byrd finds the clanking of the breakable items inside to be sweet music to her ears. Hence the packing tape and my forgetfulness.
STeAl # 2: 2 Christopher Radko cereal bowls for a total of $2. They were marked at $4 each, originally. When I can trust the girls to eat cereal out of bowls that do not have cartoon characters printed on them and are not plastic, they will be a cute addition to our Christmastime breakfast routines.
StEAl # 3: Adorable advent calendar with a snowman and Victorian farmhouse print on the front for only 75 cents! I'm not sure if there is a quote or picture on the inside of each flap, but for 75 cents I am willing to let Natalie and Michaela Byrd find out next December. This went at the top of my attic Christmas boxes so we don't forget about it next Christmas.
STeAL # 4: A box of tiny children's "antique" ornaments (rocking horse, snowman, gingerbread man, etc.) for $2. They are the kind we had on our "kid tree" when I was growing up, so this was a sentimental purchase. I can almost hear the screaming fits my sister and I had over whose ornaments were whose, while my brother stood by in complete oblivion....
I done good! Did you find anything worthy on your clearance trip?
