Yard Sale SCORE!!

Tis the Season to be jolly. RIGHT? I might be a few months late but let me tell you this is the season to be shopping. I love to hit yard sales. I am NOT neurotic about it. I don’t get up early in the morning. I don’t drag my kids all over town skipping meals. I don’t spend all of my money of stupid things I will NEVER use. I don’t spend all week long looking for my next score. NOR do I haggle from a quarter to a nickle. I do haggle but come on it is already a quarter PAY THE STINKING QUARTER.. I don’t buy stuff at garage sales with the intent to resell at a later date.  I stop at a yard sale if I pass one while I am out and if I have time. AND ONLY IF I HAVE TIME.

My mom on the other hand is the complete opposite. She will cause us to be late, cancel plans, bleed a turnip to get the best deal. YOU name it. MY RULES are broken. When a garage sale is near. Well I wasn’t even with her and she found something for ME yesterday. Something I have been looking for, for YEARS.

Now to most of you will think  what the heck do you want that for. Most of you will think it is junk and think I have finally lost my mind. But let me give you the back story before I show you my gem.

When we were kids we would go over to my grandparents house. My grandparents had carpet in their kitchen YES CARPET. Well after each time we ate we had to go get under the kitchen sink and get this little hand held bush thing and clean up all of the crumbs and stuff from under the table. THIS THING WORKED BETTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE.  We used this thing until they moved about 7 years ago. I have been on the look out for one since I moved out on my own. I have NEVER SEEN ONE. NEVER.  UNTIL my mom handed me one last night. BINGO I have one now. I have so many uses for it.

What do you think of my find or should I say my moms find for me?

So have you had any yard sale finds? Do you have certain rules that you have when you go to a yard sale?

    Yesterday my Mom scored a turtle sandbox for the kids for $5. The previous owners used it last summer for their baby pool and never wanted to use it as a sand box. My kids are thrilled. They love anything “beach” oriented. Score 2 for the Moms…LOL
