Another Reason I Love Homeschooling

I was talking to my friend Heather last week about 'back-to-school'. She was transparently and humbly confessing that having her son in public school has made her more brand-name conscious about the clothes and shoes she buys for him.

I had a sudden vision of a kid pointing and snickering at one of mine, saying, "Your mom shops at the Salvation Aaarmy!"

Boy am I glad we can avoid that. I would hate to have to give up my thrifting. :)

That's why I LOVE uniforms! I'm not blessed with the homeschooling gene, so I'm glad we have a great private school.

My kids are still proud of me when I find a great brand name at a thrift store or on ebay. I hope it sticks!

I miss the Johnson County's yard sales so much. My kids still proudly say that they get most of their clothes at yard sales. :) No one would know, though! :)
