Garage sale Saturday

August 12th, 2006

We took the kids to a bunch of garage sales this morning since their grandmother had included $5 for each of them with the girl’s birthday card. They learned the art of budgeting and getting a deal. The boy ended up with two Pokemon books, some Pokemon cards, and a stuffed penguin. The girl got a trapper keeper type folder, a stuffed koala, and a stuffed dog. They both had about $2 left too. I was showing the boy how the Pokemon books originally cost $12 each and he got them for $1 a piece. What a steal! It was a nice, and cheap, way to spend a few hours and we saw areas of the neighboring towns we hadn’t seen before. We did spend too much by stopping at a local restaurant for lunch, though. We hadn’t tried it before, and while it wasn’t bad, I have no desire to go back there. Oh well, you live and learn. Now I’ve got to finish frosting the “birthday” cupcakes I baked so the girl can open her presents. We are playing a trick on her and wrapped up a huge can of Beef-a-roni since she had told Joe a few weeks ago that she’d be happy with just a can of it for her birthday. Look, you got your wish, LOL! Her real present is a scooter that she’s been asking for, which if I know her as well as I do, will end up in it’s own garage sale years from now in like new condition.

    Katie and I kept saying we were going to be garage sale nuts this summer. Alas, we never hit a single one. Sad.
