I haven't done one of these in a long time, but I hit the jackpot today so I felt like showing off.
I have a very good consignment store close by which sells clothing and household items at reasonable prices. Next door to it is a much smaller room that they call their outlet.
All clothing, shoes, jewelry, and purses are $1 each. Household and decor prices vary.
Sometimes I'll stop in and find nothing, sometimes one or two things. A few times, like today, I've had much better luck. Here's what I got:
For me, a pair of Loft trouser jeans and a pair of Anne Klein stretch wool dress pants.
From the Gap, a casual button-down shirt for Craig, and a black blazer for me.
For Firstborn, an Old Navy fleece pullover and a pair of sweatpants.
A heavy winter coat from The Children's Place for Skippy.
And just because I liked them, two vintage industrial weaving spools ($1.75 ea).
Total: $11 and change.
