Summer Cruising with the Family ~ Part II

Summer Cruising with the Family ~ Part II

Thrift store shopping is a great way to save money during the year so we can spend it on fun things!  This summer for our family vacation we went on a cruise to Mexico.   It was wonderful to laugh and create memories together.

Thrifting is a major part of everyone’s wardrobe and most of the clothes in these pictures were purchased at Goodwill.  Believe me, it is always an adventure to shop with the girls, to see what they pick out and develop their own personal style.   Perfect summer attire is t-shirts / jean shorts and fairly easy to find at Goodwill.

Remember to always thrift with style and have fun doing it!

Summer Cruising with the Family! Part I

 

Summer Cruising with the Family!
We started our summer with a family cruise, what a great way to reconnect with all the kids … the 2 older girls just finished their first year of college and life sure gets busy with 4 teenagers!
All four of my children have been so supportive of thrifting and helping with modeling for many of the 30 television segments that Jen and I “Too Cheap Blondes” have done this past year on ABC, Stretch your Dollar, Houston Check this out!, FOX,  Livewell Network Mirror/Mirror and Deals.
Most of the clothes they wore during our vacation, they picked out at a thrift store and it sure does help the budget!
I have met people who are ashamed about thrift store shopping, I am so proud that the kids have learned not only the value of a dollar, creating their own style and by supporting Goodwill they are helping to create jobs in our local community.
Starting the summer out right!
