weekend road trip…

I’ve been neglectful of my blog ! We did a road trip this past weekend to visit my Parents; drove my Ma around to yard sales most of Saturday. I was impressed with her; like the Energizer Bunny she just kept going and going. I think it’s funny the way women (Sweetous is the same way) will search amongst all that junk looking for a good buy. Most of the stuff  in yard sales does not interest me to either buy or sell; I would either throw it out or give it away. But, they do find some good stuff (as well as some not so good). Sweetous showed me a nice jacket which I bought for $1.00 !

  1. I remember the days I regularly attended garage sales. I dont go to them much now but if done systematically you can save a ton of money and this was necessary when the kids were young. An added bonus is that when we moved so much and I had to find garage sales in the new towns I found myself living in, it sure helped to get to know the town fast!

  2. My Ma loves the yard sales and both my parents like to go to auctions. My Dad fixes up stuff he buys and sells it at a flea market. He mostly does that as a hobby though; I don’t think he makes much money off it.
