Usually, I choose one day each weekend to go with DH, because we feel kinda guilty dragging the kids around with us for hours. So we limit that to only once a week. ;) Goodness knows we've already given them enough to talk about in their future therapy sessions; we don't need to add "endless yard sales" to the list.
Anyway, it's been busy, and they've been getting to bed later than usual this week, so I wasn't actually planning to go at all this weekend. But we were all up early this morning, and I asked them each, on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being "so bummed out I just can't stand it") how they would feel if we went to yard sales this morning. They were both under 5. I took that as a "let's do this thing!" and away we went.
First house, got some baskets. I'm always looking for cute things to put stuff in, and I think these will be handy in my sewing room:
A few houses later, got some jewelry! So cute. I love these earrings! PLUS, it just so happens that I knew the girl whose house it was, so I didn't feel squeamish buying them from her. (Of course I'll still alcohol-ize them! For those of you who are worried. Mom.) ;)
|$1 each, with boxes! There were two.|
|This one was .25, with no box. Anyone know how to clean this? (That's ink.)|
Next up, some glass Christmas balls:
|The whole box was $1. I only really wanted these two, though. Love!!!|
So I spent a total of $7.75. That's actually more than I usually spend! I think I blew it on the baskets. I shouldn't have paid more than $1.50. AND looking back, I wish I would have offered .50 for the two ornaments, instead of taking the whole box. Oh well.
So we were on our merry way home, when we spotted THIS at a sale in our own neighborhood:
|A bike! For me!|
So that was the morning for me. Not too shabby! What about you? Did anyone else do well at the sales this weekend?
