I woke up today for the first time in weeks with absolutely no set plans. It was kind of a weird feeling since we have had so much going on these last few weeks. What to do?
After a quick trip to the mill, chores were completed and we just kind of looked at each other and said, let's go find some garage sales.
We haven't stopped at a garage sale in ages. I don't really see the point most of the time since I'm not looking for anything specific. It was a lot more fun when the kids were little and we were looking for baby items and toys. Back then we'd scour the paper and make a plan of attack. We'd take the stroller and make a day of it. Not so much any more.
We found a couple neighborhood sales and stuck with those. After 3 hours I was tired and ready to go home. We did find some bargains though.
Nearly new shoes for Micaela $.50
Group of very awesome science books for school $4
Cute little ice bucket at an estate sale $1
Cross-Stitch Magazines $.25 a piece
And the bargain of the day was a huge bucket of Geotrax train pieces. These are made by Fisher-Price so you know that they are not cheap in the stores. The whole bucket was $10.
That included 2 working trains with controllers. As you can imagine Nick is ecstatic!
