Thrifty Bates


Just weeks before their big ski trip (shown on Thursday's episode of Bringing Up Bates) the Bates lost all their winter clothing in a fire. But in true Bates fashion, they hit the thrift stores and managed to replace it all. In the video below, you'll learn a family secret that involves a clever use for kitchen garbage bags.

  1. Oh that's so cute. We used to do something similar for our girls when they were little. They each had these giant suitcase size ziplocker bags. These were before Zip lock came out with the vacuum bags.They would have their own labeled bag and since the bags were clear, they could easily find their stuff. We did this for Above Rubies family retreats and church camping trips. So much fun!

  2. Yeah, garbage works. One thing I wondered about was all the thrift store shopping because I always wash my thrift store finds well and that would have been a LOT of washing.
