I Brake for Yard Sales

I have a new hobby for the summer. YARD SALES. Did you know you can find stuff there. Stuff that other people have used sure, and I draw the line at any open lotions or topical female area treatments. Yes, some lady really put out a container of vag powder.

Not really sure on the thought process behind that one. "Oh, I could always say it belonged to my sister and I really don't want it in my bathroom anymore. I know I'll get a quarter for it at the yard sale." How about no, how about you open that trash bag over there and deposit it into it.

I also saw someone trying to sell an open bottle of low end -buy-it-at-Wal-Mart-for-a-1.60- lotion for 2 dollars. Just because it's old doesn't make it limited addition.

You also see some really cool stuff. Like a smoker for the grill, playhouses, and a ton of baby clothes. Badger got a nice summer wardrobe for like 12 dollars total.

I also love to get a deal. I'm a pretty reserved person but I usually will haggle at yard sales. I guess because most of the stuff that I sold at my last one got talked down at least 50 cents. It is kind of a high to get the "deal".

Badger is good with the yard sailing (haahaa pun) he likes the walking part but not so much the looking. He did manage to snag some stacking cups off a table. I ended up buying them, because unlike a store where we can just leave if he pitches a fit, the wails carry for miles if he starts up. Haha.

I am also doing better than ever. A few years ago I couldn't have looked through other peoples old stuff without needing a shower afterwards. Now, I am able pick stuff up and maybe even buy a cup of lemonade. It feels like freedom and I like it.

  1. Oh, how I wish you lived close to me. I was totally the same way about people's old stuff. Full, hot shower after touching all that nasty shit! Now, I shop Mom2Mom sales all the time. Used clothes don't seem like the festering pile of disease they once did.
    And, OMG, your vag powder comment is cracking me up!!! I love you!
