Is the Tot Swap Worth It…. Part Two

29 Jul

I totally was not planning on writing another blog post about the Tot Swap since I just did one last month, but I really couldn’t resist. I promise I’ll keep it short!

When I attended the Gaithersburg Tot Swap I got almost everything I needed to last us through the next 6 months or so. Knowing that, I wasn’t sure if I should take the time to attend the Timonium sale.

The tipping point was their Facebook status update that they had over 80,000 items at today’s sale AND most items were 50% off since it was the last day!

This sale slut just couldn’t stay away from those bargains! And I’m really glad I went because I got a super awesome {yet random} assortment of things.

Before I get to my awesome haul, I need to show you the hands-down weirdest item at the sale:

Yes, that’s right. It’s a Chia Obama! Who WOULDN’T want to grow a chia pet on the head of our president?!

Okay, here is what I got:

House Stuff — two super cute melamine trays ($1.50) and a set of Target curtains ($2)

Dog Toys — Potter needs some love too! I got this “holiday dinner” doggy toy set for only $4 and it includes a turkey, baked potato, corn on the cob, roll and braided dog toy. YUM!

Jack Clothes — the pants are 9 month sized (YAY) which we really need for Fall. The swimsuit outfit will come in handy for Ocean City in a couple weeks and the onesie/toy combos for $1 were just too cute to resist. $7.50 for all!

Great prices on this dump truck (which makes fun noises), two books and stacking train set! $9 for all!

Some BIG Toys — super cute plush rocking/rolling horse ($15), stand up Baby Einstein table ($7.50) and rolling/pushing Lion ($7).

I spent $56.18 for everything and we are now totally set for Jack for quite awhile! And no, we didn’t bring home the Chia Obama…

Here is Jack enjoying his new rocking horse (or saying, “oh crap…I’m falling off!”)
