Transform Tuesday -- Goodwill Recycling!

Reminder:  If you want to know why I'm shaving my head click here.

Daisy and J-Man go to a public Montessori school where they have to wear uniforms.  Which is really great for the morning routine... no arguements because they already know what they need to wear.  I have also been able to get most of their clothes from Goodwill, so I haven't had to spend a ton of money to get them.

When we signed them up, they told us that kindergarten and 2nd grade wouldn't have to wear gym uniforms.  Last Friday they sent a note home to the parents saying that they needed gym uniforms afterall.  I went back to Goodwill sure I'd be able to find what I needed.  Guess what I found?!  NOTHING!  Not a single thing!  So I went to Wal-Mart and got some cheap t-shirts that were the right color/style, but they didn't have any pants.  I also looked at Kohl's, Target, and Meijer.  NOTHING!

Oh shoot!  Now what?  In desperation I headed back to Goodwill.  I looked in the women's section and found 2 pairs of athletic pants that were the right colors (Hunter Green and Maroon) for less than $5 each.  Then I headed home and set to work with a pair of scissors and my serger.  About an hour later I had a new pair of gym pants.  :)

I really love it when what I see in my head and what I actually end up with are the same thing!
