Boy am I wore out. I learned today I really need to start bringing a camera with me. There were so many interesting stories to tell. Two ladies that bought two big dolls at one garage sale and I kept running into them at the other garage sales. They would bring the dolls with them to the other garage sales and try clothes on the dolls and just laugh. Seemed to be having fun to me. There were a couple other ladies who would get the garage sale owners to try on their hats they were selling. Wonder if they were taking pics for the web.
I got disappointed at a lot of the garage sales today because the prices were outrageous. Is $2 for a used baseball high to anyone else or just me. I did get the kids a couple child sized baseball gloves - one was $2 and one was $3. At one garage sale in a beautiful plantation home they had a deal - load a bag with clothes for $2. Hubby got a lot of nice church shirts out of that deal. I thought I happened upon a great buy when I found the kids a slip and slide brand new for $1. Realized when we got home that it's hard to slide down it without the inflatable boogie board that was supposed to have been with it. I'll have to sneak over to my mom's tomorrow and steal one of her inner tubes for the pool.
Here are pics of my other buys for today along with my Kroger receipt showing my savings there today. Now I think I'll take it easy the rest of the evening.
Total savings today - $114.37
Games .50 each
These cups were a quarter each. Didn't realize until I got home that the one in the middle has a small crack.
This top was $1 and the jacket for DD was also $1
The Mary Kate and Ashley dress was $2, the one in the middle was $1 and the skirt was $1.
The only DVD I found today that I would buy $1 - I'm sorry but I refuse to pay $3-$4 for a used DVD.
One another note DH came home from work yesterday and asked me to go outside and get the box of chicken out of his truck. I was so peeved because I was taking a survey and didn't understand why he couldn't bring it in himself. So I marched out there and grabbed it and brought it in the house and was about to toss it on the table when he asked me to look inside and see if they'd put the biscuits in there. So I open it up to find this "chicken" instead.
He found her at one of the log mills where he works. Any suggestions on how to get fleas off a kitty this small.
