I love to garage sale as well, but my children don't much like being dragged out of the house at 7am on a Saturday morning ...
So today, I quickly popped into my local Salvation Army (which is on the pricier side, but always has great things!), and for the grand total of $8 I came home with:
2 metres of dark denim and approx 1 and a half metres of pretty floral fabric - perfect for a winter pinafore for The Girl - $4 for the lot
On the pricier side for $3.50, but one of Paullina Simons that I haven't read yet.
A Hot Wheels car mat for .50 cents, and some eager 2 year old feet waiting to play with his new mat. These retail for around $22 and I have always liked the look of them. So far today since having it home the boys have spent around 2 hours playing with it. They've taken a break to go jump on the trampoline and try to catch the tree branches, but I have had strict instructions from both boys that the baby is not allowed near their new car mat ... .50 cents very well spent!
