I went out yard saling for the first time this season. I was surprised by the number of sales there were for so early in the season. I had a short list of things I'd like to find this season and guess what I found almost ALL of them! I love to see what my change can get me! This time I was able to really stretch it and find a whole bunch of steals!
- Bumboo for Asher - the 2 1/2 month old joy I get to watch twice a week - $2!
- Fun rattles again for Asher - 3 for $1
- Laptop case for my husband - $2
- Star Stacker for Asher - $1
- Caterpillar that's about as long as Asher (24 3/4 in!!! His Dad's 6' 9" so we were not surprised to find him in the 97 % for height!) It has a measuring stick on the back of it! = ) - $0.50
- Pampered Chef rolling pin - $0.50
- Basket for Asher's new toys - $0.50
The only thing not on the list was the Rolling pin, but I couldn't pass that one up.
Also on the list was a nice/cheap baby swing. I had a couple of "wants" I wasn't sure I'd be able to find, but I thought I'd at least try.
Want #1 - smaller - travel size
Want #2 - match my current living room theme
Want #3 - must work! (I guess that was a need.)
Didn't find it on my morning run. However, a friend and I were heading home from a baby shower and happened to notice a yard sale along the side of the road that had a swing. Since it was after 3 and late into the day my friend decided to do a U-turn and check it out.
1.) Smaller size with open top - travel size? but it'd work
2.) Burgundy, Green, and yellow plaid - yep matches my living room... and I haven't ever seen one like that!
3.) Tried it out and it worked! May need a new battery though, the slow option was REALLY slow!
Best part is they took $8 for it. Now it needs a little...well okay... a LOT of cleaning, but it's all surface cleaning and shouldn't be that hard to do.
Wow and all on the first day of shopping! I guess I need to add to my list or just quit going all together. Nah....I'll still go it's the only window shopping I feel good doing! Hey I can pay those prices!
For now I'm off to clean some baby toys with a little bleach water. What's the ratio for that anyway? Guess I better google that....or better yet I'll use Swagbucks maybe I'll earn me something!
