I had $20 when I left the house this morning. Now I have about $4 and some change.
Little Guy and I hit some garage sales today.
A vintage My Little Pony- .10
A Mini Hot Wheels race track with a tiny car- .50
A Hot Wheels truck- .10
A Christmas stamp and ink pad .10
2 romance paperbacks (everyone has a vice)- .50
Heloise's Kitchen Hints & Florence Brobeck's Family Book of Entertaining- .40
A Scooby Doo summer short set for Big Girl- .50
An Old Navy skort for Big Girl- .50
A cute Copper Key Valentine's shirt for Big Girl- .25
TKS cotton knit sweat pants for Little Guy- .50
A kid's karaoke keyboard with microphone and chairs- 3.00
Not a great haul but I can so easily see where I could be getting great deals for Christmas and birthdays if I just went to garage sales all the time (with a list!). I go to maybe 15 all year.
I saw so many kids books (.10 to .50 cents) that it makes me sick to think of the new books I've ordered from amazon and scholastic.
Then we picked up Big Girl from school and we treated ourselves to Chinese food.
So far it's been a good day and I still have some change in my pocket.
