My addiction

I have a feeling that I am going to be one of those weird old quirky ladies. Why you may ask do I have this feeling? Probably because I am already a quirky gal. My latest obsession.. garage sales. I seriously have such good garage sale charma.. it is not even funny. This last saturday I gave myself a $7.00 budget, and I came home with: 2 adorable gymboree dresses, one funky hippie little girl dress, Sofia winter hat,3 children books, one pair of jeans for Sofia,and a little refrigerator (not a fancy one) to go with Sofia's kitchen set she will get for her birthday. I am to the point where it is possible to have too much of a good thing. I seriously need to stop. I am starting to plan every saturday morning around going to a few garage sales, so if you have anything to invite me to, saturday mornings would be a great time to help me break the addiction. The other thing that I would like to say about garage sales.... is that there are good garage sales where people want to get rid of their stuff at reasonable/cheap prices.. and then there are the people who think that their used books are worth $7.00 a piece and nasty old stained baby clothes are worth $3.00 a piece. See.. the fact that I even care about this shows that I have a problem. I thought of a solution that may benefit you all. Realistically I should stop going to garage sales period... or you all can send me your wish lists, and I can be your good charma personal shopper. Then I can be happy about finding good deals, but I come home with no new clutter. Okay.. this post needs to end now, I am tired and rambling. Peace out.

Funny you mention about being a personal garage sale shopper for people... I was thinking of hiring you as I was reading it! I have never really made it to garage sales but was thinking I need to soon as we have zippo for Benjamin to wear past 9 months!

Thanks for your nice comments on my blog. And sorry I have been slow getting back to you. I would love to get together whenever your hubby works Saturdays, just let me know when it is. So far in August, the only one I can't do looks like the 18th.

Oh Kara, my friend...if you have an addiction it might as well be garage sales, right? You are great at finding the good deals. Pretty soon garage sale season will be coming to an end. I guess then you will have to get on craig's list some more, eh?

Tonya,
No, I can't return to the world of craigslist. Tonya.. that is my next addiction that I am going to break... no more buying something just because it is a good deal.

BTW...if you happen to find a "jolly jumper" on one of your garage sale adventures...let me know. Jeff really, really wants one for Chance.
