Open Season


It's officially open season for yard sales. I know, I know...you're on the edge of your seat!

My friend Diane and I have always loved yard sales. We absolutely love getting the deal of our lives every Saturday morning. We'll tell each other about yard sales that we heard about or have gone to, and even sometimes run into each other unintentionally at them. This morning we had fun going together on the hunt. Years ago we used to talk about how we could open up a little store with all of our yard sale finds and call it "Junk in the Trunk". Here's why...

After one hour and about $15 later here's what the car looked like.

I admire your ability to find such great stuff, Melissa! You have a gift! I am going to have to start yard-sale shopping now that we are a 1 income fam!

Our neighborhood is having a multi-family yard sale this weekend. It's Jefferson Garden's off of Jefferson. You should check it out. I have such a hard time finding anything at yard sales but I envy those of you who can. Happy hunting!
