Garage Sale

I'm so excited.  Tomorrow I will be waking up early to attend a 5K Event to raise money for a couple families who have gone through some trials this past year.  I'm taking the three kids with me.  Sound crazy?!!  I'm thinking it's crazy....We'll put on some of our winter gear, cause you know, it snows in many western states late into May (we had the wet, nasty stuff just yesterday).  And prepare myself for the whining that is to come.  "I can't walk anymore."  "My feet hurt."  "How much further?"    "I wish we were home."  Maybe I'm not giving my kids enough credit.


No, wait--I've got personal experience.  I think they told us no strollers.  That means said offender would have to walk the whole way (cause I ain't carrying her).  

You wonder why I'm excited?  Well, it IS for a good cause.  But it's the after that I'm really looking forward to.  GARAGE SALING! 

 Seriously, I don't need anything but I sure do like the hunt.  I'm hoping to find something that other people have missed.  Something with some serious potential.  Something for dirt cheap cause I hate to pay big bucks for anything.  Even my kids get into the magic of it.  Wish me luck!

I LOVE Garage.Rummage.Yard Sales... anything!
I HATE spending large amounts of money on items I can be just as happy with from a Yardsale.
I also LOVE Hand-me-downs!

Getting a paper and mapping it out is a great way organize your yard saling. I know there's a garage sale web site where people can post their yard sales and garage sales for free ( I did the simple driving around method. It's a hit or miss. Some days, I struggle to find any signs, others are gold mines.
