Latest Garage Sale Finds. . . . .

Now we all know that hidden in every woman is that being that comes out on Saturdays (occasionally Fridays) usually starting around 8:00am. You know the one, it starts usually on Thursday scouring the classifieds and plotting it's attack course. It also scans the city sidewalks and electrical poles for it's feeding places. I am no different. We're all infected with garagesaleitis. And if you deny it, you're either under the influence of heavy medication or your Husband locks you up starting on Thursday morning. Well, my Husband made the mistake of letting me loose this morning. It started right at 8:00am, breakfast eaten, appropriate clothes being worn, comfortable shoes and socks on, cash in the wallet, and a tank full of gas. Off we went. We zigged and zagged around town like a car-full of clowns running around the main ring of a circus. I think I even appropriately raised the ire of one man when I turned instead of going straight like he thought I should(he apparently didn't understand the art of garage sale vehicle placement in traffic). I can say we really had a good productive outing. Let's see, various vrooms vrooms (as Adam calls them) for $.50, a tv for $20, dresser for $8, closet organizer for $5, but I think the absolute best prize of the day has to be the Cranium Super Fort playset for $2. I have been watching not only Adam but his Sister's play with this thing since we brought it home. I'm still having a hard time deciding who loves it more. The two year old that it was made to please or the 13 and 11 year olds who are reliving their 2 year old years! Overall what a great day. Log on and comment letting everyone know about your garage sale experiences.

I found you through the MommyFest. I so smiled reading your post. My daughter and I love garage sales. We check the newspaper and Craigslist, write out our list, plan our route and then add in those sales we find that are posted on the street but weren't in the newspaper or Craigslist. Of course we do have to start with Starbucks. Nice to meet you.
