Garage Sale Treasures

I forgot to post about this last week when it happened, but I just remembered... so I'm gonna do it now!  Last Saturday, I asked Michael to watch the boys for a few minutes so I could run out to hit a sale on diapers (exciting, huh?), but on my way back from the store I saw a bunch of garage sale signs.  I couldn't help myself!  I cruised by a few and could tell from the street, they didn't have anything I was interested in.  I stopped at one, and it was soooo weird.  It was like a garage sale I would have.  I mean, the baby clothes were nearly all clothes we have have or had at one time.  They had games and movies that we've owned.  It was a little Twilight Zone-ish.  BUT, everything was extremely over-priced!  I didn't buy anything.  I headed back home, but then saw that the elementary school near my house was having a big parking lot sale.  I had to stop!  

I'm glad I did, too, because I loaded up on some great reader books for Preston.  At 5 for a $1.  There were some ragged ones, but there were also some really good, quality books too... woo hoo!  Score!  When I got home and showed Preston our new treasures, he was pretty excited too!

Hi - I am asking for fellow bloggers to visit my site in hopes that we can find a match for a young girl that desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. Would be great if you could visit today too. Thank you. Kelly
