Why I love Garage Sales

What a day today!  Here in Florida, it was breezy and sunny and the perfect day to garage sale!  Hubby and I started hitting garage sales the first year of our marriage.  We both love to score deals, but I never knew what amazing deals you can find at garage sales!  Today was one of those days.  Here’s my breakdown of our great deals and their full retail price on Amazon.

Our out of pocket total is a bit high but we don’t garage sale often because hubby works Friday & Saturday mornings and we have church on Sundays.  However, he took off this morning, so we took advantage and scored some really great deals on things we have been wanting to buy but couldn’t bring ourselves to pay retail price.  I was super excited to find so many great learning toys to use with the girls, storage jars and a bread machine!  Everything was in such good condition, as well!  I sometimes have to scrub down my garage sale finds really well but everything here just need a simple wipe down.  One day soon I will share my tips for making the most of your garage sale adventures!
