Goodwill finds for the week

My goodwill finds for the week.....

My goal in this trip was to pick up an old scrabble game so I could use the letters for spelling and reading for the little ones. I did manage to score 2 scrabble jr games. One was from the 80's and the other was a newer one I grabbed both. I figure we could use the variety of scrabble game boards ( we already have the Disney scrabble jr.) and use the extra letters. The new game was $1.00 the older game was$2.00

I picked up the Cat in the Hat game for $2.00
2 24 piece puzzles $1.00 each
1 around the city floor puzzle which has pieces that show the letter and an occupation that go on top of the puzzle. Each letter has an occupation on it A is artist , B is baker etc,,, so I was very excited about this because we can add these items to our letter bags. $1.00

Magnetic letter shape puzzles the big block is a magnet and the letter that fit inside are magnets too! Inside each there is a picture of something that starts with the letter like M mice. It doesnt have all the letters but that works out okay because it will be another item to go in our letter bags? $2.00

Our unusual find was a cd storage container which the kids played with for at least 20 min at the store and another hour at home. It always the non toy items my kids like. Now I am in search of old CD's and DVD's that I plan to attach numbers and letters on to put in the cd organizer.$4.00

Some assorted toys that I got to put in our letter bags that we will be starting in a week.$2.00

A few other items I picked up our total was $20.02

The goal thing came from a get motivated seminar my husband went to. You can Only have 10 things on your list you put the top 10 things that will most benefit you or or family then work from there. So far it has really helped me stay on task
