My favorite Past time!!!!

There is not much that can get me out of bed early on a Saturday morning except for Garage Sales! Yes...Garage Sales!!! I am truly addicted and love every minute of it. The season is upon us and I am found counting down the days until each Saturday morning. I almost can't sleep on Friday nights as I'm filled with anticipation for what I may find the next morning. Believe me, this is no exaggeration...just ask Skylar. He is just shocked at my excitement and now compares it to his love for golf. Quote, "You get as excited for a garage sale as I do for a round of golf." The family knows to greet me as I return on Saturday mornings with my new treasures. Kylee loves it as she anticipates a new toy every week. She is currently enjoying her princess scooter that I found for a buck and Alexis is riding in style in her Britax carseat (great condition) for 20 bucks. Pennsylvania has the greatest neighborhood yard sales in these new developments. You can hit like 20 homes in one neighborhood most filled with barely used kids toys and clothing. But you've got to know which ones to hit. It is sooooooooo much fun and gets me sooooooo pumped. Some of my friends even place orders on things I am to find for them. I know, I am pathetic but had to share in my current excitement. This all began about 2 years ago and now I must claim being a professional bargainer and garge sale expert! I won't bore you with a list of my findings but if anyone is interested I have plenty of fun stories. Thanks for humoring me through this totally exciting post!

That is so great! What STEALS!! The garage sales around here seem to be filled with junk. But I do get some good clothes. You've inspired me to get looking again! You go girl!

P.S. That bullfrog is absolutely disgusting and I cannot believe she will hold that. Barf!

I have witnessed your excitement to scavenger out the best deals at a garage sale. I have also witnessed your downers when it was already purchased. Not so good. Keep truckin' Mama's bringing home the goods.

Problem solved on Kylee transforming into a Reeses! Creative thinking is always nice.
