Weekly Findings - June 12

I’m considering changing these updates from “weekly findings” to “weekly killings.” Why, might you ask? Today was yet another killer garage sale day! I spent all of fifty cents before lunch this morning and didn’t buy much else from lunch until 2. Then…

Garage sale tip: If you wait until the garage sale is getting ready to close within the hour, people will be much more willing to wheel-and-deal. Take advantage of desperation….

Two o'clock hit, an hour before closing time at the lake association sales we were at all day. I found about $9 worth of clothing, plunked my findings on the table to pay, and pulled out my wallet when the lady said, “Tell you what. We’re the same size. Just give me $10, and you can pick out twenty more items if you’d like. We’re getting ready to pack up and ship this off to Goodwill, anyways, so you’d be taking it off our hands.” Needless to say, at this point my jaw had hit the floor, and I practically skipped to the tables. All together, I found 22 items for $10, including a bunch of Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, LOFT, and Gap things.

Hopefully this will motivate you to garage sale next week! You never know when you’ll be hit with a big blessing like I was today.
