Yard Sale Finds

Last Saturday I had my first Yard Sale Scavenger Hunt, and let me tell you - I have a new addiction. It was so much fun! I absolutely LOVE getting a good deal and people are practically giving things away at these yard sales. I know that I have to be careful not to get things that are fun but I don't need so I have decided to stick solely to baby things, since we seem to have everything else we need (unless I find something that I obviously cannot live without.)

My plan was simple. I found this fabulous yard sale website and mapped out all the yard sales that were advertising baby things. I called up a friend to come with me and early Saturday morning set out to find some treasures! The first one was a huge success and found lots of things for practically nothing. The next four - were a huge disappointment. We either couldn't find the building (even the GPS said we were there), or the GPS couldn't find it, or the GPS found it and the building existed but there was no yard sale to be found! Somewhat frustrated but still excited about my earlier purchases we decided to call it a day. I dropped her off and headed home.

But fortunately for me, from her house to mine (an 8 minute drive) I stopped at four yard sales along the way. I found a few more things including a fabulous dresser!






(I actually got this at a thrift store but was still excited about it!)

For a total of $31, I don't think I did too bad.

I may just have a new Saturday morning hobby :)
