Yesterday I felt so excited that I have lost enough weight that planning for new clothes is called for. I had gotten down to the size 16's I had bought but I was aware they were not going to fit much longer. But because we are in the midst of a move, I was going to wait.

As I parked the car in front of my best thrift store last night to drop off donations (more packing for moving!) I heard an announcement through the open door that announced starting at 7PM, all clothes would be 60% off!

Serendipity because it was well after 7PM by the time I was ready to pay. For $33 I got 2 pairs of designer jeans, 1 pair stretch dress slacks, an adorable kicky pleated front jeans skirt, 6 knit tops, a sheath dress, and a purse. I am wearing the skirt today and feel young and flirty. Time to take DH out to lunch, I think.

Virtue is its own reward? Thank goodness I am only 1/2 a mile from one of the best thrift stores around - too bad I am moving but that is a journey I will happily make!
