This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

I Love A Good Bargain!

The last few weekends, I've been yard-saleing. I have found quite a few bargains!

The picture here shows some of the things I have gotten. I got that blue shelf for 5 dollars, the white one for 2 dollars! The ceiling fan was only 10 dollars, now all I need to do is find someone to install it for me. It had never been taken out of the box.

The best deal was that scrapbook case you see at the bottom. I saw that the original price the person was trying to sell it for was 25 dollars, and that she had marked it down to 20 dollars. I went up to her and asked if she would let it go for 10, knowing she wouldn't, then I said "how about 15?" and she looked pained as she said "well.... okay."

Not pictured here are 20 Tupperware containers that I got for a dime each, and a leash that I got for 3 dollars, out of necessity since I made the mistake of taking my pup since it was down the street. She chewed through her leash and I had no other way to get her home. Turns out the leash I bought was a really good one, so it wasn't a total waste of money!

Don't think for a minute that I'm done yard-saleing for the year.... no way!

Also, a very happy birthday to my cousin, pictured right, who is celebrating her 24th birthday in China today. And to my friend, A, who has been there for me so much the last few years.... Happy Birthday!

Wow! You bargain shopper!!! That scrapbooking tote sells new for like $60 bucks (American) so you got an awesome deal!!!

We have been yard saleing too but haven't found any really good deals. Blake found a great deal on trains that he collects.. but not Mike or me.

We went to a sale yesterday that was so overpriced we just sort of chuckled and walked away. They had like $3-6 on clothes! I don't think so! I rarely pay even $1 for clothes at yard sales!

Keep posting your good finds!

Once again, I wish we lived closer so we could go saleing togehter. *sigh*

Nice...I agree with Jo about the scrapbooking tote, those things are outrageously expensive new.
