Garagae Sale Addiction

I’m addicted to garage sales.  It’s true.  I can’t help myself.  And when my neighborhood has the big sale, I get a little giddy.  Sad to admit, I sometimes even get too excited to sleep the night before.  Partly because my neighborhood has lots of kids that are older and better dressed than mine.  I seriously get the majority of Suzy’s dresses from garage sales.  And Grammy.  Grammy buys nice dresses also.  😉  I also get most of their toys, dress up clothes, books, and many other bargains like the bounce house and sport equipment.  This year wasn’t as big, but I was not disappointed.  My favorite house to stalk had this great Curious George Rain outfit.  Perfect?  I know….  I will further admit that this year I asked for her phone number so that I could try and score some pre-sale deals with this family.

And twirling dresses.  Lots of twirling dresses.  Beautiful, expensive twirling dresses.  For $2.  All of the dresses in the previous post also came from this sale.

Andy’s big score was a train table plus Thomas trains for $25.  One of my best buys ever.  He has played with it daily since we bought it.  For hours…..  From my $2/hour sitter calculation…. I have well made my money back.  (Marti Math…)

Yes, I am addicted to neighborhood garage sales.  I am passing this habit on to my children.  My husband rolls his eyes… but I am no where near seeking rehab yet…
