Saturday Garage Sale Finds

This morning after my daughter's very first rec ballet class (it was a surprise...she was soooooo excited), we saw a few signs for garage sales on the way home.  We always love to drive by and see what we can find.  I'm always on the look out for cheap clothes for my girls, even if it's to grow into.

We stopped by a couple with no luck, so we headed toward home.  When we turned down our road, I saw two signs advertising sales on the next street down, so I drove on to check them out and I'm so very glad that I did.

At the first I found a blue jean skirt ($2) for myself, and at the second, a mere two houses down the street, there was a ton of clothes my oldest daughter's size for sale.  Of course, she started shopping on the other side of the lawn, and before we'd been there 30 seconds she had rounded up a whole herd of My Little Ponies.  They happen to be her new obsession, as well as our dogs preferred chew toy...so at 10 cents a piece I said she could get them all.

Here are the things we got.  The girls jeans were 50 cents each (they are a size too big, so I won't be caught off guard when she has a growth spurt), and the shirts were 25 cents each (these should fit her now).  I paid $5.50 total for everything pictured.



There were only 7 ponies we bought today but somehow one of her own got into the picture....the white one with purple hair....well it started off as a unicorn (her other obsession, along with ballet....) but the dog chewed its horn off. =(  She's been given strict orders not to leave these on the floor!  Her Princess Celestia from McDonalds got her whole face chewed off....


Did you go to any garage sales this week?  If so, did you find anything?  What is the one thing you are always on the lookout for?

I have been garage saling (is that really a word?) since we moved to TX. I've hit one or two here and there, but I have no clue where I'm going in the residential neighborhoods around here and I'm not too keen on hauling both of my kiddos with me. It seems that when my husband is home I'd rather stay home with him than get out. Maybe this fall with the little one in daycare I'll get out on Friday mornings and see what I can find. I'm also always looking for great clothes. I shy away from buying shorts that don't currently fit, but kids can wear jeans any season. Toys are great to find-if the kids need em that is :-)

I totally agree about the kids! My oldest loves to go to them though! I think me and my little one might make a habit of stopping at some on the way home from taking her to school on Friday's this fall.

I think I've gotten lost in every residential area within a mile of my house LOL, but it's fun. They all end up winding back to one of the main roads, and then I know where I am LOL. My older one even likes to make a game of telling me which direction to turn when we get to a crossroads.
