It's that time of the week again. Yeah for garage sales! :) AND finally some lovely weather too. However, my kids were not in the mood for going. Not everything can go smoothly all at once. If it did I might think that the world shifted off its axis (or my mind...lol). I was also on a 1.5hr time crunch. I had a breakfast date with some of the most amazing ladies (thanks dad for watching the kids!). I think I made out pretty good though for the couple limitations.
Starting with stuff for me. The very first garage sale I went to had these 3 drawer organizers. $5 a piece. Not sure if that would be a good deal for most, but I desperately need them and it sure beats paying $15 a piece. I will always buy organizers, because I can always use more organization in my life. :)
Yeah for mommy purchases! Really nice pair of black peek toe heels, a couple movies (yes Zak, you will watch 27 Dresses with me), and a new shirt. $4
Annabelle's birthday is in September. I think that she will really like a pink/unicorn/flowery theme. $1.25
Random assortment of books. I was pleasantly surprised by the Snowflake Bentley book (about the guy who discovered no two snowflakes are alike) and paid $1 for it. I was also excited about the Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears for .25! The Toy Story and Race car books were a desperate attempt to appease my kids.....it didn't work today. lol $4.75
Random assortment of stuff. A couple jars to store craft stuffs in 1.50, flower arranging foam 1.00, big bag of beads 1.00, big bag of foam letters 1.00, lacing cards .25 (actually from last week), farm animals .75 (pretty sure it's Discovery Toys).
Finally I found a couple Christmas presents for the kids. I really need to get cracking on that! This book was $1 and will be for Silas. You can't really see in this picture, but it is a puzzle book. Each page has a 12 piece puzzle. It looks like it has never been used....the puzzle pieces have never been removed from the book.
I saw two of these today for the same price, so I decided to buy one. It will be for Asa. It's a Shake and Go racetrack by Fisher Price. It is in excellent condition and works great. It sells for $40 in stores (I think). I found it for $10. I am really excited to play with this on Christmas day.
GRAND TOTAL - $35.50
I should probably get the racetrack picked up and put away before everyone starts waking up from their naps. I'm linking up to My Life on a Taffy Pull - - go and visit whether you have something to share or not. Mrs. Taffy is a wonderful woman and her blog is an inspiration to me! Happy blogging.
