Thursday

thrifty green thursday

my sister is a great thrift store shopper who can sift through the chaff and outfit herself in cute, funky things for very little money. i don't often have the patience to sort through racks and racks of weirdness, but i did recently have great luck getting a few toys for dylan. she loves to play with whatever she can get her hands on--paper, the remote control, the vacuum--and i wanted to find something that would interest her without wrecking too much havoc. this is what i scored: 




the plastic blocks and rings aren't exactly green, but we're giving them a second life (reducing packaging and waste), so i think that counts. and how 'bout that cool wooden tractor? i got the three toys and a little teapot for jim's office all for $5.58! for more thrifty green thursday tips, visit green baby guide.

Awesome--I buy all my boys clothes--and most toys--from consignment. One store in Boulder also has great clothes for women, too!

I buy all my daughter's toys secondhand, too. I agree that used plastic stacking rings are greener than new free-trade organic biodegradable rings! (That said, I just remembered we are giving away a set of wooden stacking rings right now on the Green Baby Guide!)

Thanks for joining us for Thrifty Green Thursday!

Those are some great finds, and i love that tractor. I imagine that someone's grandpa made it (nice to imagine lovely things, even if it isn't true).
