Okay, okay…. please don’t be mad, but I’m so proud of my garage sale prowess this weekend and last I am declaring myself Queen of garage Sales at least in my little circle of friends. I know some of you out there are much better garage sale queens than me – but let me bask in my happiness for now. For a grand total of $45.25 – here’s what I found this weekend.
The First shots are all clothes for WeeMan in sizes 2T, 3T, and 4T. They were purchased along with an unpictured pair of sandals and the toy vacuum cleaner (pictured later) for $10.25. I don’t like to buy too far ahead on clothing – but this sale was all clean, well kept, brand name and priced at 10 cents to 50 cents…. so how could I not buy two bags of things- especially brandname jeans with the adjustable waist. (Those are hard to find for boys for some reason.) As you can see things have been washed and are ready to be folded away in the appropriate tub in the basement. (I use Rubbermaid totes labeled by size to store clothes in ) The tennis shoes are a barely worn pair of size 5 Nikes.
This Car/ Train rug is for grammy’s house – it was $1.
This group of goodies is actually for my sister and her little girl. Carrie and her hubby are in the process of redoing an old farm house right now and money is tight. Just yesterday we were talking about how she had bought new bathroom accessories for the upstairs bath, but was going to try to clean up and reuse the one’s the bachelor owner had left for the downstairs bath even though they were filthy and not very girly. (That bathroom is going to be the guest bath and her little girl’s bath. It was painted a light gray, and they were only repainting the trim right now. Low and behold I found this bath set for $8 – fabric shower curtain, two rugs, and a trash can. I also got sweet pink Nikes for her daughter and a bed rail. They’re skipping the toddler bed and putting her in a twin bed in the new house.
WeeMan of course scored some more books – and mommy scored a time killing mindless computer game.
Cookbooks for mommy, a welcome sign for the back of the house, and a My first Leap Pad with four cartridges (pretty sure we’re saving that for Christmas)
A Pampered Chef apple peeler and corer (Now I don’t have any excuses for not making applesauce and applebutter this fall), two pairs of shoes for mommy
A new picture frame (I can’t get enough), a pretty candle holder for the living room, and a curio cabinet for the master bedroom. (Check back later this week – I’m going to dress it up pretty for the special mementos between hubby and I. I haven’t decided whether to paint it or not. I’d like to paint it a soft cream to match the new bedding – but I don’t think that will make hubby happy. (He’s all about wood)
