Garage Sale Day!

Today is “Super Savings Saturday” over at Crystal’s blog.  We went garage sale shopping this morning and got a couple of great deals!

We all headed out to a neighborhood sale and walked through the neighborhood to see what they had.  Our first find was a pet food container.  Our current food container does not fit in our new pantry and just last week I was at the pet store looking at the different types available, but the one I liked was about $30 – more than I wanted to spend.  Can you believe we found one today?  It is just the right size, has wheels and was marked $5!  Hubby talked them down to $3!

Our second find was a fire ladder – you know to escape from a second floor in case of a fire.  I’ve always thought this would be something good to have, but when I priced them several years ago they were $50-$75.  We found one today for $6!  Something I hope we never have to use, but good to have.

The boys got several books for .25 each (not pictured) and Nick must have looked really cute this morning because a very nice lady gave him a donut AND the board game for free!  The game is too old for him, but he was excited and used his manners and said thank you 🙂

Anybody else go garage sale shopping this weekend and get some good finds?

R went yesterday morning with the boys looking for a bed while I was working. They got books and board games, too. Also, a Dirk jersey for D and something else I can’t remember. Can you tell I’m really excited about it?
