Thrift store score

I took the kids to the little local thrift store today with wool sweaters on my list to make cloth diaper wool wraps.
And guess what? I couldn't find any so I asked the lady working and she went in the back and brought out a tub of winter clothes and I found 3 100% lambs wool sweaters!!! score!
I'm washing them right now in hot water to make them full down.
I've never made or used cloth diapers before but I have lots of stuff to make them with and I could really use the extra $$$ that disposable diapers are costing us and then there are the ecological reasons.
Then I found this adorable mug! Isn't this cute? And so close the Mothers Day. Sweet.

Oh and I have to mention the GAP jeans for Gus in mint condition for just 50 cents! score!

Cloth diapers? That sounds ambitious.

My husband jokes that if my Mom ever went on a budget all the dollar stores in Houston would have to go out of business. He asked her once if she has a reserved parking place at King Dollar and if they roll out the red carpet for her upon her arrival. She didn't think that was funny.

That's funny!

As for the cloth diapers, I have such high hopes one day and none the next!
I felted the sweaters and they turned out so funny!
the large sweaters turned out about the size my 4 month old would wear!!!
