Garage Sale Season

I am SO excited, I love garage sale season.

We have a weekly newspaper "The Shopper" that comes every Wednesday. In that paper - holds the list of all the local garage sales for Illinois and Indiana. Wednesday it comes and Friday we go out "shopping".

I hope to find some great deals this year. I hope to find outside toys for Claire. I would love to find an outside playhouse, sand toys, even a sand box would be great, maybe a toddler climbing gym. I have high hopes.

I am a bargain shopper. I enjoy a good deal and I love the clearance racks at stores. So garage sales are right up my alley. (Ha! No pun intended!) Not all garage sales are great, some have junk, some are filled with grandma and grandpa knickknacks but once in awhile you will come across the best garage sale ever. I hope to at least find one or two of those this year. Ones that I will feel proud to spend my money at.

I can't wait! I just hope the weather can start staying nice, so more people will have garage sales, which in turn will allow me to find some awesome deals!!

  1. Thats also a good way to be green! I too love garage sales but always feel weird when I am by myself.

  2. Hey lady, thanks for stopping by my blog & your kind words! Your daughter is beautiful:) I'm looking forward to hitting the garage sales too now that I'm expecting!

  3. I need to hold garage sale!!!


  4. Deal shopping can be so much fun. Have a great garage sale season.


  5. I love garage/yard sells too! Finding a fabulous deal makes the whole day better!
    Happy shopping!

  6. Sounds like a fun time. I do not move fast enough on Saturday mornings to take advantage of yard sales. It is something I am thinking about, though. It does seem like a good place to buy things for my little one!

  7. Hi there! Here via ICLW. When we lived in MD, I loved The Shopper. We found all sorts of great yard sale deals... including a $1 20+ year vintage wine. Technically, the guy had to sell us the "bottle" since selling the wine violated liquor laws. Definitely our best yard sale find yet.

    Happy ICLW!
