Another week down....another week closer to fall and the end of garage sale season here. :( I was talking to Zak this week and I said, "Aren't you glad we live where garage sale season is ending and not just starting to kick into high gear?" He kind of looked at me like I was weird. Alas, I am weird. :) Anyway, onto the good stuff....
This is a really cool interactive map that I found. It was never used. I thought that it would be cool/fun to use for geography purposes. $5
Some fun puzzles. These Starfall puzzles are so cool! There is one for each short vowel sound. To top it off they are made of the most heavy duty cardboard I have ever seen in my life (the boxes too). The wooden giraffe puzzle can be done in two ways: with letters and with numbers. $3.50
Closer look at the Starfall puzzles just because they are so cool!
Books. I was so bummed. One sale (at a huge you HAVE to get your kids out of the car church rummage sale) there was a teacher selling gobs and gobs and gobs of books ranging from .10-.50. Well, seeing how I had my children I couldn't dig through all her stuff (we're seriously talking crates and crates of stuff). Silas was not having it. I only managed to make it through half a crate. :( I was pretty frustrated with the kids. Funny, at a different sale I found some devotionals for me really cheap. That patience one you see...there were about 15 of them in her big box of devos....lol....the Lord must've been trying to tell me something. $4.50
Some clothes for me and Annabelle. $3.00
A huge blessing....found TONS of stuff for the boys. Everything in these pictures were .50 a piece....including the nice warm jammies....and the adorable patchwork GAP pants. 30 good quality items for $15....can't beat that at all.
AND this was an exciting find (although it just looks like a big pile of nothing in this picture). A big tote of Geotrax for $15. It has since been assembled and there is quite a bit of track, 8 vehicles (including train cars, a couple people, road signs/accessories, fire station and train station. This one is getting put up for Christmas. :)
GRAND TOTAL: $46
I think that the kids Christmas is pretty much set.....just Annabelle to finish and stockings (which are my favorite part!) I'm linking up to My Life on a Taffy Pull. Stop over there to see other great finds. Happy blogging.
