The Cute Potato Frugal Find

Team Cute Potato strives to be thrifty whenever and wherever we can. With the holidays fast approaching, we thought you might like to know where to find the best kids’ toys and clothing deals in Maine. So without further ado, we’d like to introduce the Cute Potato Frugal Find. Our favorite this week? Check out the just out of the box Green Toys Recycling Truck we found at Lots for Tots Children’s Resale Store in Falmouth. On, this eco-friendly truck is $21, but at Lots for Tots? $3.00 (score)!

  1. I found an entire box full of Ellos, the Shopopolis set. My daughter loves Ellos, and the whole box was only $4.99!

    Super Score!

    Again, at Lots for Tots. I live for them.

      Hi Laura,

      We have to admit, this is the first time we’ve heard of Ellos, but after a little investigating, we see that they’re little figurine sets and wow, those sets can be expensive! Congrats on the find.

      All best,

      Your friends at Cute Potato

  2. The Thrift Shop at the Freeport Community Center has the best children’s clothing! $1 each for up to 12 months and $2 for toddlers and young children to size 5. On Wednesdays they usually have a two for one sale. We buy the bulk of our stuff there and then donate it back again when we have outgrown it. There’s lots of amazing stuff for grownups too. Last year the Thrift Shop raised over $80,000 for Freeport Community Services, so this is truly a “shop for a cause” kind of place. I go there all the time. Depot Street in downtown Freeport.

      Love it! We go there to drop off, but didn’t realize FCC had a Wednesday sale. How fun! And we love the idea of donating the clothing back again.

      Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. I am advocating Lots for Tots in Falmouth. I have been shopping there since I was pregnant 4 years ago. I get great bargains on toys, but my favorite are the clothes. Sweaters and winter gear and bathing suits, I have found the cutest stuff in quality far superior than anything I would pay full price for, for peanuts. I don’t mind my little one getting them muddy or wearing the knees out at all!
