Yard sale scores & Sports

I had a super YARD SALE buying day on Saturday. I just realized I should have pictures to go with this post but was so busy this weekend I didn't think about it. I'll add them sometime this week as I know you will be waiting with baited breath until then.....

My DS has been asking for a Exercise bike/Treadmill/mini Trampoline for his room. I discovered a community sale that is usually good and it did not disappoint. I found an exercise bike that has the "air wheel" in the front and the handle bars go back & forth when you pedal...$15 ...SCORE!!! I had to go back home and get my DH's truck but it arrived safely and is waiting in my DS's room for when he gets home from his dad's.

Next I found a three tiered shelf that fit perfectly outside my front door. I'd been wanting something for that space and the one I found is "rustic" and looks great. $5....SWEET.

Finally, I hit a sale late in the morning while on my way to Wally's World. My DH collects wooden boxes and I'm always on the look out. I found a couple at this particular sale but the BEST thing was a TEAK bench that is carved and held together with Pegs. It's about 5 feet long and VERY HEAVY. The price $5. WHAT?????? I kept looking at the tag and was convinced that I was missing a "0". I asked the sellers about it, how was it possible that it was still available?? They said that a woman wanted it but her husband wouldn't let her have it. He said they also didn't put a price tag on it until an hour before I arrived. WHAT EVER!! I ran back home and got the truck again. It looks so good in my front yard.

Regarding sports..............

I'm not saying it's all your faults but............

I did ask for a fund to send my DD to Philly. The fact that we are now down 3-1...clutch MUST WIN THREE IN A ROW......I'm just suggesting that we might not be in this situation if someone had coughed up some cash.

It was not the best weekend for Tampa Bay Sports teams. The fact my DD didn't go to the USF game or to Philly...coincidence? You tell me.

Til later.............

Sounds like some great deals you got there. I would love to see pictures. I love going garage saleing myself! I think there may be only a few left as the weather is in the 40's around here.

Sounds like some great deals. A depressed economy makes for great garage or yard sale deals. Take a look at the free online garage sales.

Good Luck
